Louis Tussauds Wax Works Museum, Blackpool
Are you trying to find a place without a Mcdonald's restaurant or a Madame Tussaud museum? Then forget Blackpool - it has both.
No surprise - in a city betting in youth and entertainment both are absolutely natural.
When you saw a Madame Tussaud museum you've seen them all - some of the dolls are repeated, some different, but wax is wax and only marketing approaches justify the differences.
However, if, by miracle, you haven't seen a Tussaud museum, you may use this one. It is there.
The difference is that this one was not created by the famous Madame Tussaud, but by her great-grandson Louis, and after moving from owner to owner is now operated by Merlin Entertainment group (at least, it was when I read about it, but I may not guarantee that wax didn't melt, or change hands again).
Louis Tussauds, must see attraction, whether its for comedy value or not :) They have hindreds of models in themed rooms! In the Hollywood room you can see some of Hollywoods brightest stars. Why not do Battle with Darth Maul, and join the Star wars cast for a photo. Yoiu will also find yourself in the middle of the action such as Terminator and James Bond. I heard that coming soon is Daniel Craig, the new James Bond and you can also take a staring role in the king kong movie. In Celeb City you can join Posh and Becks and Gordon Ramsey and why not help Elton John play a tune on his piano. Take a stoll down the UK's favourite street, before joining Alec in the Rovers for a pint. This part of the waxworks is a tribute to Corrie Street. The Rock Factory lets you listen to your favourite houts as you move round the hall of fame. You can get up close to Jon Lennon or play the guitar with Robbie. in the Regal Room why not sit on the queens throne and become her royal highness for the day? The new part of the waxworks is the Mirror Maze and the Horror Room!!! whooooo ........ but are you really brave enough to come face to face with the world most notorious murderers ...... Beware what lurks in the shadows.
When in Blackpool be sure to take a visit to the Madame Tussauds Waxworks Museum, it has over 150 waxwork models of many celebrities including the Royal Family, The cast from Coronation Street, Lots of movie stars including Star Wars, Marilyn Monroe, The Terminator, Sister Act, The Hannibal, James Bond.
There are also many wax models of singers such as Robbie Williams, Britney Spears, Cher, Craig David, Michael Jackson & Frank Sinatra.
There is a room full of famous football stars including the latest model of David Beckham.
My favourite waxwork model is the Terminator, He looks so realistic & just like Arnie looks in the famous movie.
Make sure you take a look at the "Chamber of Horror" section if your daring enough, it has many spooky models of lots of famous Horror Movie stars such as Freddy Kruger, Frankinstein & the possessed girl from the Exorcist, which shows her lying on the bed & the bed then moves up & down with the curtains blowing..... It looks fantastic. Around every corner you will see serial killers, assassins, murderers & torturers. Dennis Neilson, Dr Crippen, Ian Brady, Myra Hindley, Charles Manson, Fred & Rosemary West, all known for their involvement in the most gruesome, horrific murders & assaults.
Me & my Boyfriend Gaz spent a few hours in the museum taking many photos of all the models, make sure you take a camera along & get your photo taken with Count Dracula & David Beckham!
The entry fee costs around £8-10 Sterling Pounds per person & i think its cheaper for children. There are many Madame Tussaud Waxwork Museums around the world, Blackpool is the only one i have ever been to. Feel free to check out the website below to find out where your nearest Museum is.
