A Family Day out with the Stars at Madame Tussauds Blackpool

Looking for a fun, immersive and playful family day out? Head down to Madame Tussuad's Blackpool to enjoy an interactive day out like no other; they've got the stars, celebrities, sportsmen, Hollywood favourites and more in wax form and interactive activities, games and photography to get involved with. Last week I was invited to see what Madame Tussuad's Blackpool was all about, I took my Mum, Sister and Nephew with me and drove to one of my favourite northern towns. All of us was really excited; I'd never visited before neither had my sister or nephew and my mum hadn't been for years.

Even walking into the attraction was exciting with a hallway of press photographer imagery on the walls and sound effects to get the visit started. We walked into some British TV favourites like Paddy McGuiness, Simon Cowell and Alan Carr and had a go on Paddy's 'Take Me Out' game; you can add your name which lights up on the screen then listen to what Paddy's says. In this area was also Gok's fitting room, I admire Gok Wan for his fashion work so had to get a selfie with him.

My Mum is a big fan of Doctor Who so was eager to see the next section of the attraction which was the latest addition to Madame Tussuad's Blackpool; the Doctor Who area with the TARDIS prop that was actually used onscreen in series 11 and the Doctor herself, Jodie Whittaker. We were able to walk through the forest searching for the sonic screwdriver, get photos with the Tardis and the Doctor and then dress up like one of the Doctors for an interactive photo. In this area was also costumes from the recent series of the show including friends and foes. 

After using our detective skills in the Doctor Who area we went into the Jungle and took part in some Bush-tucker trials with Ant and Dec and we even made it across the bridge to the studio with celebratory applause. I bumped into one of my favourite people in the jungle area, Sir David Attenborough so I sat with him and his frog for a photo. 

Fancy yourself as a sportsman well join Madame Tussuad's Blackpool Sporting Academy with all your favourite sporting genres from football to darts. This was a fun area with a penalty shoot out game to take part in, lots of history to read up on and lots of selfies to take. The area stretched into a big games room with a beat the buzzer, laser maze, climbing wall game and a seat down area; we used this as a pit stop whilst enjoying all the games and fun. Me and my nephew had a few goes in the laser maze and got top of the leader board!

Back in 2018 Madame Tussuad's Blackpool assembled some MARVEL SUPER HEROES for a new area featuring all your MARVEL favourites in wax form; Thor, The Hulk, Captain Marvel, Groot and more. We spent quite a lot of time in this area as there was so much to see and interact with; first up was a photo opportunity with MARVEL SUPER HEROES props to use, me and my nephew tried to reenact Iron Man and Captain America's fight scene from Civil War; I was Iron Man and Bobby was Cap. Next up I got to meet Thor and try to pick up his hammer, another interactive area  with a tall wax figure of Thor himself. In the area is also a Hulk display where you can pick up a yellow taxi just like Hulk then pose with the green guy himself for a angry selfie. To the side of Hulk was Iron Man flying up into the clouds and you can join him in this interactive display. We of course took part in the family photo spot with Spiderman too. Lastly we stepped foot into the galaxy with a 'I am Groot' and the lady herself Captain Marvel; I tried to impersonate the stance and embrace my inner super hero. 

It was time for a pint by this time so we headed to the Rover's Return Pub replica for a sit down and to rub shoulders with all the Corrie Stars from past and present. The bar was open for drinks and snacks with Coronation Street being screened on the TV's around the pub.

We continued on through the Rover's into the Music area, I have to say this was one of my favourite areas in the attraction being a huge music fan myself. Meet Tom Jones, Lady Gaga, Prince and The Beetles in wax form and enjoy a sing song in one of the sound booths; you can even jump on the drums. I posed, sang and immersed myself in this area with the laughs and enjoyment of the rest of the fans -sorry I meant Family-

We rounded off our trip with some time in the Festival Fields with artists like Ed Sheeran, Olly Murs and a chance to sing on Karaoke. There were lots of photo opportunities in this area with the festival wellies to stand in, selfie time with Ed and busting a move with Justin. Just outside of this area was some more British favourites like the Royal Family, Ab Fab and another family photo spot where we were all in a line up.

With so much to do, see and interact with we were in the attraction for a few hours so this would make a perfect morning or afternoon out with the family. You'll experience lots of laughs, get loads of photos and make memories with the family. It really is an amazing attraction and I can't wait to visit again! Grab your tickets online here.
