Whilst in Blackpool we decided to use our Merlin Passes and visit Madame Tussauds. Having been to Madame Tussauds in London and New York, we were not expecting much thinking that all the best waxworks would be in London and New York – How wrong we were!
The layout is very similar to both New York and London. There are themed rooms to explore and as you’d expect from Madame Tussauds you can get up close and touch the waxworks. What immediately struck us was that we knew who all the wax works were they were TV stars from many of our favourite shows.
There were many more interactive displays in Blackpool; you could add your name to the podium of Take me Out talk with Jeremy Kyle and have Keith Lemon say his catchphrases .
Blackpool doesn’t have the crowds of London and New York so you could really take time and not rush taking photos etc.
In the sports room you could take part in a penalty shoot out (which I wasn’t very good at ) There was a whole room devoted to I’m a Celebrity Get me out of here!’ There was loads to do here ; You could walk along the bridge, put your hand into mystery boxes have a photo with Ant & Deck and take part in Bush tucker trials.
As we went through the other rooms we found lots to explore and didn’t come across any characters we didn’t recognise.We then found our favourite waxwork…
As we walked through the festival rooms we came across Justin Bieber ! Although the hairstyle was out of date it really was life like. We look took lots of photos!
Should you visit?
We were wrong to think that Madame Tussauds Blackpool would be any less than New York or London. In-fact it was even better because we knew who all the waxworks were and the it was less crowded. This will appeal to all ages.
Where’s Abbie rating
9/10 (10/10 for Justin Bieber!)
