Yesterday we visited Madame Tussauds Orlando. Having been to the London one, we were not sure how it would compare but we actually liked it better. It is not as big but it is far more interactive and interesting and we had a lot of fun!
As we went in we had our photo taken by a green screen and then walked through a swamp. The great thing about this Madame Tussauds is that each room is themed to go with the wax models in it. In the swamp there was an airboat to have a ride on and look out for Alligators.
We walked through the next door and we were on a ship!
Next was a US army recruitment room and then we bumped into the first man on the moon! Much to the kids delight if you posed next to him you appeared on the TV screen in the famous moon landing scene.
We then stepped into the Oval office and posed for pictures at President Trumps desk and on the balcony with former President Obama.
We High fived Martin Luther King as we made our way to meet Walt Disney!
We had fun in the next room posing with Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison and played with the interactive exhibits.
Then my son was delighted to come across one of his hero’s, Steve Jobs.
There was a whole room dedicated to Madame Tussaud herself and a place you could pay to make a waxwork of your hand.
Next we met some sporting legends and even got to sit on the original seats from the old Yankee stadium.
In the next room were some of our favourite musicians and singers! Throughout the attraction by a lot of the wax works are costumes so you can dress up for photographs. Members of staff will happily take photos for you too.
We then got to pose on some chat show sets including Jimmy Fallon.
Through the next door we bumped into Shrek and Fiona with their onion carriage.
We carried on to end up on the set of Jurassic Park, ride a bike with ET and take selfies with Kung Fu Panda.
We then attended a party with many famous actors. My daughter was happy to see that, amongst other well know actors, Emma Watson was in here.
On the way out of the attraction we were shown our green screen pictures which had been magically transformed into great souvenir photos. These were available to purchase.
We then walked out through the gift shop where you can buy some brilliant themed souvenirs.
We had great fun at Madam Tussauds Orlando, it was even better than we had expected and a brilliant way to spend an hour!
Taking a child with an ASD to Madam Tussauds, Orlando?
We attended in the middle of the day on a weekday and the attraction was not at all busy.
There were no queues.
There is plenty to look at and do and it is ok to wander around.
My son had fun here.
