Madame Tussauds in Orlando, Florida has become one of two homes to the Justice League: A Call To Heroes Experience in the world. That’s right. The world. The other home, soon to be opened, will be in Sydney, Australia. That makes this a very special treat for me to be able to join up with the team and see what it’s all about.
What Is It All About?
The Justice League: A Call To Heroes exhibit takes place in Metropolis and Gotham in a time when Lex Corp is up to no good. Each mission sets off a series of special effects from lights to smoke to some “heavy lifting” that add to the storytelling nature of the environment and make you part of the excitement.
Get Immersed in the World of the Justice League
I’ve been through Madame Tussauds before and I was amazed at the transformation that the area now occupied by the Justice League went through. It’s like being immersed in the world from the movie. They went above and beyond to make this experience worth taking your time through.
Who Do You Get To See?
With the name like Justice League you would expect to see, well, the Justice League, but I’m sorry ladies, you won’t be seeing a life-sized version of Aquaman anytime soon. The exhibit only features Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman.
Each figure is made to scale with as accurate of details as the creators at Madame Tussauds could replicate, down to the hair and material of the outfits.
Each area features a mission that you must complete to activate the special effects in that particular area and get the photo op you are fighting for. Three of the missions are obvious with Superman, Batman, or Wonder Woman standing at the spot, but there is at least one mission that doesn’t have a character standing nearby so keep an eye out for the digital mission assignments located on the wall.
Superman Takes the Prize
While I consider myself more of a Batman fan, the most unique sculpture in this exhibit is definitely Superman because he’s an articulating figure. None of the other figures in the exhibit, Justice League or otherwise, move.
I learned from Todd Andrus, the Regional Head of Marketing, that Superman marks the first articulating figure in 200 years. The original being The Sleeping Beauty (Louis XV’s sleeping mistress, not the Disney character).
Make sure you take your camera when going through this one but if you happen to be alone, there are cameras placed at each mission to take your photo for you (and available for purchase at the end of the exhibit).
The exhibit is stroller friendly but the lack of light in some areas might be a cause for concern for some attendees.
There are employees walking the streets of Metropolis and Gotham with you so feel free to ask them for assistance if a particular mission doesn’t seem to be going as planned.
Tickets start at $25 for ages 13 and up and can be purchased online or at the exhibit itself. While in the area, I highly recommend you check out the Orlando Eye since you are already in the neighborhood. Discounts are available for those wishing to see multiple area attractions.
