Experience Features New Wax Figures of Captain America and Thor and A Never-Before-Seen 4D Film
Madame Tussauds New York’s Marvel super hero experience – a new, permanent, multi-level experience that will feature wax likenesses of The Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and two new wax figures of Captain America and Thor, as well as the Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience – will open on April 26th, 2012 at Madame Tussauds New York, 234 W. 42nd Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues).
The exhibit will lead visitors through a long hallway and downstairs into the secret command center to unlock their powers alongside their favorite heroes. Captain America and Iron Man stand at the ready while Spider-Man crouches, about to spring into action and a 15-foot-tall likeness of The Hulk emerges through a wall into the Gamma Radiation Lab. Visitors will stand at the “Contamination Station” to see if they’ve been exposed to the gamma rays that turned Dr. Bruce Banner into his green alter ego. They will also have the opportunity to wield the mighty hammer Mjoilnir alongside of Thor as he emerges through a portal from Asgard prepared for battle. The never-before-seen Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience places visitors in the middle of a Stark Industries press conference. Viewers can not only watch as Peter Parker asks Tony Stark questions, but feel the commotion once the press conference is interrupted by the evil Loki and Dr. Doom.
