If you have ever been to Time Square, or even saw a photo of it then you know about the Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. I am probably the 1% of New Yorkers that have never been. Shame on me because we literally live walking distance, and we have passed by many times and have said we will make it a day one day, and that day just never came. Then we got an invite to come for a day to check out all they had to offer, PLUS their newest interaction - The Broadway section where you can journey through Andrew Lloyd Webber's most iconic shows! Madame Tussauds New York in the heart of Times Square is the only place with no ropes or barriers holding you back from your favorite stars. Voted as one of New York’s most unique attractions, Madame Tussauds invites you to pose “in a moment in time” with the world’s most iconic musicians, A-list stars, sports legends, world leaders and more. With over 85,000 square feet of interactive entertainment, including our Mission: Undead and Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience, the world famous wax attraction is bigger and better than ever.

They have different ticket options which include all kinds of different benefits. From silver, gold to platinum. For all my mommas that plan to go - Strollers are welcomed, so it is easy peasy for you to stroll around. Elevators are always working, for fast and convenient movement around the museum with children. You can't bring any outside food but they do have plenty of options inside, plus a Dylans Candy Store that has just about every single kind of candy ever invented. 

NOW onto our favorite sightings of the night :

The Boys Pick:

This was the very ending of our adventures of the NY Wax Museum, but I know it was their very favorite because who doesn't love the Avengers. They are strong, action packed, but also funny and exciting to watch. So when we found all the Avengers in one room the boys were just ready to show their inner superhero. After some photos with the whole gang we got to go in and get ready to watch the Marvel 4D experience. This 4D film incorporates 3D film technology with thrilling special effects, including wind, water and even SMELL. This isn't a movie. This is a true super hero experience that puts YOU in the middle of the action. The Marvel 4D Film and Experience is included in every ticket purchased online. It was the coolest thing ever, and of course they loved all the funny parts where they weren't expecting to get splashed with water!

Dad's Pick:

So with our tickets we were given entrance to go to the Mission:Undead, where guest become fully immersed in a zombie adventure where you play against your friends in a unique 7D multi-sensory interactive gaming experience. With rich cutting edge technology you  feel like you are actually a part of the game while shooting lasers at the enemy. Experiencing a thrill of a roller coaster and the excitement of a state-of-the-art laser blasting game all at once. It’s an adrenaline rush like no other. You can help save the world one zombie at a time. The instant the boys heard about it they were like NO WAY, not at all, not even for a second. So when we got to the entrance of it dad said he would want to go and so I stayed with the boys in the front where we took photos with fake zombies, and watched some guest get their hands waxed which was really entertaining to the boys they said next time they would want to do it but they just wanted to watch it happen first. Anyway - Dad got to the do the ride and he said it was intense and a good choice that the boys did not do it because it feels super realistic and like you are dead on part of this zombie apocalypse going on all around you. He did say it was really fun for him though, and that it was definitely his favorite part of the museum because it was very interactive and his first time trying out 7D. Can you honestly believe we are now on 7D gaming? Back in my days the farthest we got was 3D, and had no idea we could possibly get this far. WOW! i'm old!

Mom's Pick:

Its a tough choice honestly. I loved how hands on the experience actually was, and it was not what I was expecting at all. I thought it was going to just be wax statues all over and that's that. But it was so much more than that. I loved how you could really get into the photos, for example the E.T bicycle that you could actually sit on, and the big floor piano that the boys were able to create music with, BUT my all time favorite had to have been the Ghost Busters interaction room. It started off as a subway station that looked a bit creepy and covered in slime. It felt like you were straight in the movie. Then to a phone booth which you could pick up and make the call. After some spooky and scary turns in the Haunted Mansion you find Slimer where you have to press a button to get him to come out of the haunted elevator. It leads us all to the end which is the Ghost Busters Headquarters, and you get to go on the computer to plan and build like you are part of the GB crew yourself. 

There is literally a million other photos we took which came out amazing and we had so much fun getting up close and personal with these legends, heroes, entertainers, etc. It was so much more than just a wax museum, and honestly went above what I was expecting which I really love when a place does this for me because it was a pleasant surprise that I can now share with all of you. PLUS, it really does feel like you are meeting these actors, singers, etc in real life because they did such a fantastic job creating them to look super realistic. It is a place I would most likely return to, and of course recommend you have a family outing to! It is hours of fun, and entertainment all in one.

Thank you Madame Tussauds NYC for inviting us, and as always all opinions are 100% honest and of our own.
