Merlin Magic Wand | Madame Tussauds Washington D.C.

Merlin's Magic Wand

The Merlin Entertainments Group is the leading name in location based, family entertainment worldwide, with 58 attractions in 12 countries and across 3 continents, Merlin Entertainments welcomes over 32 million people to its attractions every year – many of them children. Merlin Entertainments’ special charity – Merlin’s Magic Wand – has been set up to provide magical experiences to many more children who are seriously ill, disabled or disadvantaged and who might not otherwise be able to visit one of our many attractions around the world. Through Merlin’s Magic Wand charity, we seek to provide the means for kids to visit us, or to take part in another similar experience appropriate to their circumstances. Grants towards the cost of travel and accommodation may be provided if needed, in addition to providing entrance passes to the attraction or experience.

Merlin owns and operates the London Eye, Madame Tussauds, Alton Towers, LEGOLAND, the London, Edinburgh and York Dungeons, Thorpe Park, SEA LIFE, Chessington World of Adventures and Warwick Castle.
