CITY SPOTLIGHT LAS VEGAS LAS VEGAS NEW BUREAU A bigger, better “Hangover” Madame Tussauds offers a chance for its guests to brush elbows with famous figures from history, politics, sports, music, TV and film. “For some, our attractions are the best opportunity they might have to relive a part of history or have fun interacting with our incredibly life-like wax replicas of their favorite celebrities,” says Amirah John, trade sales coordinator for Merlin Entertainments, which operates Madame Tussauds. The Las Vegas location will be debuting two new wax figures in 2018, and guests will also be able to enter the comic world of “The Hangover” movie series. “They will be doubling the size of their popular Hangover Experience and creating a truly transformative space, taking guests into the heart of the movie,” says John. Madame Tussauds welcomes groups with dedicated reservation times and guaranteed entry. All of the locations provide scavenger hunts and behind-the-scenes educational workshops about the history of Madame Tussauds and the making of its wax figures. For more information, contact John at amirah.john@merlin entertainments.biz or go to madametussauds.com.
