SpongeBob SquarePant​s Interactiv​e Experience to Debut at Madame Tussauds New York, Feb. 11

Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob SquarePants wax figure at Madame Tussauds New York in Times Square will feature a new, enhanced environment beginning Tuesday, Feb. 11. 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. In celebration of the brand-new interactive space, Madame Tussauds New York is offering kids 12 and under FREE admission through President’s Day, Feb. 17, if their family comes to the attraction dressed in yellow.* SpongeBob SquarePants is the first animated character to receive a figure made entirely of wax by Madame Tussauds. The wax figure was unveiled July 15, 2009. *Valid two free children per full paying adult. Cannot be purchased in advance or combined with other offers.
