I went to Madame Tussauds for the third time a few weeks ago and as usual it was brilliant, (not mentioning the massive queues).
Madame Tussauds is a big building full to the brim with wax models. There are athletes, politicians, historical names and many, many more.
I haven’t been there for a few years, so there was lots of new sections compared to the last time I went. There was a set of Olympic athletes, including Usain Bolt, Mo Farah, Jessica Ennis-Hill, Tom Daley and loads more. There were also lots of other sporting superstars, such as Tony Hawk, Muhammad Ali and Bobby Moore, and I even got up close to David Beckham.
Katniss from the Hunger Games and Benedict Cumberbatch were in the film section with all of their pals. The variety of models was so huge, that if you thought of a Hollywood star they would be there in the room with you. I really liked sitting back on a sofa with George Clooney.
Famous historical people like Henry VIII and Sir Lancelot were mixed in a room with the royal family and Nobel Peace Prize winners – what a weird mixture! I thought, “uh oh” when I saw Guy Fawkes standing with a grin on his face next to 10 Downing Street and David Cameron.
One of my favourite attractions was a new section called The Scream. All it was, was walking through a dark passageway, but that dark passageway held some horrible things in store. So if you brave the scream always look behind you. You never know what is coming.
Even though I don’t like One Direction I did like their models so if you walk through the special exhibition without wanting to queue for a photo, take a look at the wax sculptures as they are very good.
There is a set of wax superheroes in front of the 4DMarvel superhero film. My favourites were the Wolverine figure and the one which I have liked since my first trip to Madame Tussauds, the giant Incredible Hulk. The film is great, but don’t forget to pick up your 3D glasses. I only remembered at the last minute. It has all of the Marvel superheroes coming together to fight against Doctor Doom and his robot army. Will it end in glory or will it end in a disaster?
I also liked a particular room where it told you, step by step, how the artists made a wax model. It was really interesting and fun to look at as well.
At the end of the brilliant set of rooms was a little machine that asked you questions about the figures like which was our favourite and worst model. One of the questions was who should they make next, which I thought was great. I would like them to make models of Ant and Dec as they are my favourite celebrities.
All in all I had a really good time, but it was very busy, so beware of that, and the queues!
We won tickets to go to Madame Tussauds, so we were lucky enough not to have to pay to get in! It is not cheap, costing £30 for adults and £25.80 for children, but it’s much cheaper if you book online, where you can get tickets for half price.
