Real-Life Hero from Make-A-Wish Invited for Exclusive Access of the Museum and a Private Viewing of the Film Only Airing at Madame Tussauds
New York City, NY (July 14, 2021) – Madame Tussauds has collaborated with Marvel to create an exclusive new film, “Marvel Universe 4D.” The thrilling all-new 4D film experience invites guests to feel the power of their favorite Marvel Super Heroes in Madame Tussauds New York, Madame Tussauds Hollywood and Madame Tussauds Las Vegas. Wind-chilling, water-soaking and face-flinching special effects bring the audience closer than ever before to Captain Marvel, Thor, Black Panther, Rocket, Spider-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp as they battle Loki in a bid to save the city from his invasion.
To celebrate the new film, Madame Tussauds is shining a spotlight on strength and hope, the key characteristics of a fictional Super Hero, by recognizing a real-life hero from Make-A-Wish. Jeremiah is an 8-year-old boy from Brooklyn, 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 Jeremiah’s favorite Super Hero, Spider-Man. The incredible family received the red-carpet treatment as they arrived at the world’s greatest wax museum. With more than 85,000 square feet of interactive entertainment, the largest Madame Tussauds attraction in the U.S. was reserved exclusively for the family to explore.
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. To experience Marvel’s most loved heroes, brought to life in multi-sensory interactive themed areas, with wax figures, and a thrilling 4D adventure film book in advance online at https://www.madametussauds.com/.
