Madame Tussauds Orlando Hosts One Direction “Reunion”
Orlando, Fla. – July 6, 2015 – After touring London, Sydney, New York, Hollywood and San Francisco, One Direction’s wax figures have finally landed at Madame Tussauds Orlando. Fans can take the selfie of their dreams as the wax figures of all five members – Niall, Harry, Liam, Louis and even Zayn – will be profiled in Orlando marking an exclusive reunion for the band since Zayn’s departure from the group this past spring.
Madame Tussauds Orlando has teamed up with Macy’s for a special social media contest where 15 One Direction fans will receive makeovers from Macy’s and be among the first to meet the One Direction figures ahead of the public. The contest kicks off on Monday, July 6. For contest details and entry information, visit MadameTussauds.com/Orlando.
Starting July 8, One Direction fans will be able to take photos, sing along to their award-winning hits and get up close and personal with their favorite band member. The figures are in a seated position on bleachers, so fans can interact with the entire group, sitting down right next to their favorite star for the optimal photo opportunities.
One Direction’s figures arrive in Orlando just as the group kicks off their North American On The Road Again tour July 9. The figures will remain in a special area of the attraction dedicated to the band throughout the summer.
“As the newest Madame Tussauds attraction, we’re so excited to have all of these amazing celebrities under one roof, and the arrival of One Direction is the perfect addition to our star-studded attraction,” said James Paulding, Head of Southeast Region for Midway Entertainments for Merlin Entertainments. “Our Orlando location will be the only place for fans to see their favorite pop band reunited with all five members for the summer season!”
Madame Tussauds is world-renowned for the creation of detailed and lifelike wax figures that pay homage to A-list celebrities from film and television, sports icons, musicians from all genres, and notable figures from history and pop culture.
Each Madame Tussauds figure is truly a work of art, involving teams of professional artists and sculptors who spend months on extensive research and taking more than 500 measurements to recreate world-famous icons, to achieve the kind of astonishing realism that has been at the heart of the 250-year Madame Tussauds legacy.
Guests at Madame Tussauds Orlando will experience the essence of America with this brand new, immersive and interactive wax experience, bursting with family fun and world-class entertainment, as they move through themed areas meeting all of their favorite stars from award-winning film actors, to historical and modern world leaders, sports stars, music legends as well as figures important to Florida. All visitors can shake hands with the president, get on stage with rock stars and pop princesses, or get up close and personal with a Hollywood heartthrob and take the ultimate selfie!
