Family Fun at Madame Tussauds: New SpongeBob SquarePants Interactive Experience
Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants at Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square features a new, enhanced environment! This custom, fully interactive experience is designed to replicate the sights and sounds of one of SpongeBob’s favorite hangouts, Jellyfish Fields.
New features include a one-or two-player interactive gestural wall game that allows visitors to use their own body movements to virtually interact with the jellyfish and bubbles of Jellyfish Fields. Guests hone their virtual skills by popping bubbles and once they've mastered that, they can try their hand at moving jellyfish to their virtual net. However, they need to be careful as some of the jellyfish will "sting" them, causing the screen to flash and release all of the netted jellies back into the wild, starting the gameplay all over again. Some of Bikini Bottom's most familiar faces also make an appearance.
The SpongeBob SquarePants figure was originally unveiled at Madame Tussauds New York on July 15, 2009.
