Madame Tussauds Blackpool announces £1million investment in Marvel Super Heroes

The previously undeveloped space will add 5,501sq.ft to the existing public footprint within the attraction, so guests can experience something truly out of this world. As if something from a classic Marvel comic strip, visitors will step right in to the action and come face-to-face with their favourite comic book and film heroes.

Incorporating four distinct zones, the new area will include a number of new figures as well as interactive experiences. The attraction takes inspiration from the original comics as well as the blockbuster films that continue be a huge hit at the box office.

Matthew Titherington, the attraction's general manager, said: “We are thrilled to announce the addition of Marvel Super Heroes to the attraction, in an amazing UK first. The new area will be a must-visit destination for all Marvel fans, offering the chance to get up close and personal to their favourite characters from the big screen.

“We are working closely with Merlin Magic Making and Marvel on the design and build to ensure the new attraction is authentic to the comics and offers unique experiences. As many of the interactive elements have are bespoke to Madame Tussauds Blackpool – something UK visitors have never seen before.”

At this time, the following characters and areas have been confirmed, with further figures currently under consideration and development: A comic store filled with Marvel classics and miniature action figures; a Thor zone, a Hulk zone and a Spider-Man zone.

Marvel Super Heroes is part of the main Madame Tussauds Blackpool attraction and is included in the ticket price, starting from £13.50 for children and £16.50 for adults. An additional 20% discount is available when tickets are booked online.
