Madame Tussauds New York completed a full reimagination with new theming and key wax figures in its party area full of A-Listers, called the Glow Gala. The room is packed with 20 celebrities including new and never-before-seen wax figures of Ariana Grande and P. Diddy. Many of the figures, such as RuPaul, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry, are wearing illuminated, show-stopping looks inspired by the famous New York Met Gala. Perry’s figure takes center stage in this 360˚  experience, suspended from the ceiling and styled in a recreation of her 2019 Met Gala chandelier dress.

Inspired by New York’s unique gala scene, the completely remodeled room invites guests to step off the streets of Times Square and onto an exclusive NYC rooftop. Imaginatively curated by Madame Tussauds global creative team headquartered in London, the multi-level Glow Gala area comes to life with state-of-the-art projection technology and a dramatic, lighting extravaganza, choreographed to a hit, New York City-centric soundtrack. ​​Detailed touches such as floral walls and neon art installations provide a fun backdrop for many GALAmorous photo-ops. The Glow Gala expands on a multimillion-dollar investment into North America’s flagship Madame Tussauds attraction, following a recently added MARVEL 4D Universe cinema experience and expanded MARVEL Hall of Heroes in 2021, which kicked off the expenditure.
