Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds London, in partnership with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, have opened Kong: Skull Island, a new experience based on the upcoming film.
The Kong: Skull Island experience is now open to the public in the wax museums at New York and London. Moreover, the experience will remain as a permanent addition in the New York wax museum.
The new attraction will see visitors entirely immersed in the jungle of Skull Island, where they’ll have to journey through bamboo, foliage and vines before encountering the first wax likeness from the film, Tom Hiddleston as his character Captain James Conrad. Visitors will also come face-to-face with an 18-foot animatronic Kong head.
“Madame Tussauds is famous for providing the most authentic, thrilling and fun experiences for our guests. So, we are excited to launch our largest ever animatronic today as part of Kong: Skull Island,” said Anna Domingo, general manager, Madame Tussauds New York.
“We worked closely with Legendary Pictures to ensure our animatronic head is made to the exact film-scale, so visitors really will come face-to-face and feel the power and scale of the Kong depicted on the big screen,” he added
Kong: Skull Island will release in theatres all over the world this Friday.
