Madame Tussauds Blackpool opened exclusively on Saturday night [23rd June] to welcome the winner of its Marvel sleepover competition, seven year old Jacob Horner along with 20 of his friends and family, for the ultimate party with super hero stars.
Marvel superfan Jacob, entered the attraction’s Facebook competition to win the sleepover, which offered one lucky winner a prize package like no other.
As well as having the entire attraction to themselves to take selfies with their favourite stars, Jacob and his friends were also able to enjoy games, a movie screening and some delicious snacks before bedding down for the night in the Marvel SUPER HERO area.
Resident wax figures in this area include Captains America and Marvel, Hulk, Ironman, Spiderman and Thor.
Jacob is described by his mother as ‘Marvel mad’ and has super hero wallpaper, bedding, clothing, toys and more at his home in Fleetwood. He sees each movie as soon as its released and counts Spiderman and Ironman amongst his favourites.
Matthew Titherington, general manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool, said: “We received over 80 entries on Facebook to win this one-of-a-kind Marvel experience and were only too delighted to welcome Jacob, along with his friends and family. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their exclusive visit and we hope that it made for some ‘Marvel-ous’ memories for all involved.”
