Madame Tussauds collaborated with Marvel to create the new film Marvel Universe 4D. The all-new, 4-D film experience invites guests to feel the power of their favorite Marvel superheroes at Madame Tussauds locations in New York, Hollywood and Las Vegas. Wind-chilling, water-soaking and face-flinching special effects bring the audience close to Captain Marvel, Thor, Black Panther, Rocket, Spider-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp, all battling Loki to save the city from his invasion.
Madame Tussauds is also shining a spotlight on strength and hope by recognizing real-life hero Jeremiah from Make-A-Wish. Jeremiah is 8 years old, from Brooklyn and fighting sickle cell. His wish for an online shopping spree was granted earlier this spring, and he and his family were also invited to Madame Tussauds New York for a private viewing party of Marvel Universe 4D. The 85,000-square-foot space was reserved exclusively for the family to explore.
On behalf of Merlin’s Magic Wand, the children’s charity from Merlin Entertainments, Madame Tussauds is also donating tickets to Make-A-Wish to recognize other heroes battling life-threatening illnesses.
“Wish kids like Jeremiah, kids with critical illnesses, are in treatment and going through uncomfortable procedures. It wears them down, taking both a physical and emotional toll. They fight through the pain and strive to just be kids again and part of their family,” said Brittany DiDonato, manager of the alumni program for Make-A-Wish Metro New York. “A hero to look up to gives kids the opportunity to see a hero who models the behavior that they see in themselves, battling against all odds and winning!”
