Madame Tussauds has collaborated with Marvel to create the experience, titled ‘Marvel Universe 4D’. Visitors will enjoy special effects such as wind and water as they meet the likes of Captain Marvel, Thor, Black Panther and Spider-Man.
Marvel Universe 4D features interactive themed areas, wax figures and a 4D adventure film, and is available at Madame Tussauds New York, Madame Tussauds Hollywood and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
To celebrate the launch of Marvel Universe 4D, Madame Tussauds New York invited 8-year-old Jeremiah from Make-A-Wish to a private viewing party of the film. Jeremiah and his family also exclusively enjoyed all 85,000 square feet of the attraction.

“Wish kids like Jeremiah, kids with critical illnesses, are in treatment and going through uncomfortable procedures,” said Brittany Didonato, Make-A-Wish Metro New York.
“It wears them down, taking both a physical and emotional toll. They fight through the pain and strive to just be kids again and part of their family,” Didonato added.
“A hero to look up to gives kids the opportunity to see a hero who models the behavior that they see in themselves, battling against all odds and winning!”
On behalf of Merlin’s Magic Wand, Merlin Entertainments children’s charity, Madame Tussauds is also donating tickets to Make-A-Wish.
