Great day out especially on a rainy day of which we seem to have had many recently!
Although smaller than the London attraction (much less expensive too) Madame Tussauds Blackpool packs a punch with a wide range of tv, music and sports stars and plenty of photo opportunities!
My daughter loved serving behind the bar in the Rovers Return and playing the drums with Freddie Mercury as well as a whole host of others including Ant and Dec, Ricky Hatton, Susan Boyle, Torvil and Dean, Alan Carr and the X Factor Panel.
Even for younger children who may not know who some of the celebrities are the attraction is set up in such a way that there are interactive games or activities on each level making it truly hands on and inclusive across the age ranges and they have a new Children's Zone with Shrek and Bob the Builder. Children eight and over can also take home a wax work of their very own hand for a small price!
What made our visit here though was the staff. They went out of their way to help, explain how best to use the attraction and simply chat to the children making their experience a wonderful one. EVERY member of staff we dealt with delivered on customer service.
There are a small range of snacks and drinks available inside in addition to a well stocked merchandise store. Pushchairs must be left in a buggy park in the entrance although disabled access is available for children/parents and carers in wheelchairs.
