Madame Tussauds has teamed up with Marvel to create an exclusive new film experience titled “Marvel Universe 4D,” airing exclusively at the attraction.
The all-new 4D film experience invites guests to feel the power of their favorite marvel Super Heroes at Madame Tussauds New York, Hollywood, and Las Vegas. With special effects like wind, water, and more, the audience will get closer than ever before to Captain Marvel, Thor, Black Panther, Rocket, Spider-Man, Ant-Man and The Wasp as they battle Loki to save the city from his invasion.
To celebrate the new film, Madame Tussauds recognized a real-life hero from Make-A-Wish. Jeremiah is an 8-year-old boy from Brooklyn who is fighting sickle cell. His wish for an online shopping spree was granted earlier this spring.
“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!”
Jeremiah and his family were invited to Madame Tussauds New York for a private viewing party of Marvel Universe 4D, featuring his favorite Super Hero, Spider-Man. The family received the red-carpet treatment as they arrived at the wax museum.
On behalf of Merlin’s Magic Wand, Merlin Entertainments children’s charity, Madame Tussauds is also donating tickets to Make-A-Wish to recognize heroes battling a life-threatening illness.
