MADAME TUSSAUDS AND INTERCONTINENTAL HOTEL INVITE HORROR FANS TO EXPERIENCE THEIR WORST HALLOWEEN NIGHTMARE
Spend a Chilling Night Exploring Warner Bros. Icons of Horror and Slumber in a Haunted Times Square Subway Station – on Friday the 13th and Halloween
Get ready for one sleepless, horrific night! Just in time for the spooky season, Madame Tussauds New York and InterContinental New York Times Square are offering a chilling overnight stay at the entrance of Warner Bros. Icons of Horror, where fans will have the opportunity to privately explore the experience and get up close with some of the most iconic horror characters. The “room” is available on Friday, October 13 and on Halloween, Tuesday, October 31.
Before the real tricks begin, guests will be treated to drinks and a three-course dinner from InterContinental’s room service menu, inspired by Warner Bros.’ The Exorcist and New Line Cinema’s The Conjuring Universe and IT. When the museum's doors close, the frightening overnight experience begins where guests will find their luxury accommodations materialized.
The experience dares guests to explore every corner of the immersive scenes recreated from Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema’s horror films. Come face-to-face with possessed doll Annabelle in a child’s bedroom tea party and The Nun from The Conjuring Universe. Survive the original possession that started it all, with Regan from The Exorcist floating above her bed – will you suffer the safe fate? And be terrorized by the dancing clown, Pennywise from IT, in the darkest and most run-down part of the Neibolt house.
Guest lodging in the eerie “subway station” provides a brief respite from the darkness, with comfortable accommodations including a fully stocked mini bar for those looking for some liquid courage.
The once-in-a-lifetime horrifying experience for two guests starts at $4,000 (exclusive of taxes) and includes:
● All-Inclusive tickets to the full Madame Tussauds experience during operating hours
● Private dinner inspired by Warner Bros. horror franchises
● Craft cocktails inspired by the very horror characters lurking next door
● Exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the wax figure studio, led by the Madame Tussauds artists
● Custom-cast wax hands
● Personal photographer throughout the museum, including 10 professional photos
● Fully stocked minibar during the overnight stay
● Too chicken to make it through the night? A secondary accommodation at InterContinental New York Times Square serves as a swanky fallback plan
● Choice of breakfast the next morning at InterContinental New York Times Square’s The Stinger Cocktail Bar & Kitchen or room service inside the guest’s additional accommodation
When the lights go out and the doors are locked, what happens?! Pre-booking and stay customization must be organized at least five days in advance – horror fans can book their fa-boo-lous room now by calling 212-803-4580 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire.
