Visitor attractions: Merlin Entertainments to open 11th Madame Tussauds in Blackpool


Final planning applications went in today showing the sensational fascias of the exciting new Madame Tussauds, Blackpool – scheduled to open next April and take the North West by storm..

The ultimate celebrity attraction, Madame Tussauds has a global reputation for creating high quality and amazingly lifelike wax figures – unlike any others; and for developing unique attractions which reflect the interests and people, special to their location.    Madame Tussauds Blackpool is a perfect example of this.   The eleventh Madame Tussauds to open around the world it is an exciting multi-million pound attraction which embodies the fun, quirkiness, and unique and very positive British qualities of Blackpool.  Madame Tussauds Blackpool will depict the nation’s heroes from the world of television, film and sport and plays host to dozens of “new” celebrity faces as iconic as Blackpool itself, and all very familiar to visitors to the town.    More than that they appear in fun, interactive sets many of which also encourage visitors to ‘take part’ in the action themselves!     

Commenting, Iain Hawkins, Merlin Entertainments’ Head of Blackpool Cluster said:   ‘ We are very excited about  Madame Tussauds, Blackpool.   It is quite different from anything Madame Tussauds’ has done before and will be full of surprises, and new figures never seen before, and so high quality that visitors will certainly do a double take.  The great thing about Madame Tussauds is that there are no ropes or barriers so it is easy to get up close and personal with your heroes.  In fact there is many a photograph in pride of place in homes around the world that owes a lot to the Madame Tussauds magic! ‘.
