Rocket Raccoon storms Blackpool’s Madame Tussauds, Groot stunned!

Suit up, grab your Awesome Mix Vol. 1 – and jet your way to Madame Tussauds Blackpool as it welcomes two new Guardians of the Galaxy figures.

The brand new Marvel Super Heroes area, which opened earlier this year, is an immersive and interactive experience and the Rocket Raccoon and Groot prison line-up is no different.

Visitors will venture down a tunnel-like walkway into the bowels of The Kyln belonging to the Nova Corps, to the sound of thumping iconic rock music, ensuring guests feel that they have jumped into the actual film itself.

As they turn a corner, they come face to face with wise-cracking Rocket Raccoon and his kind-hearted partner Groot (who was also at the exhibition’s opening night), where they can then step up alongside their heroes in order to get their own mug shots shoulder to shoulder with the famous duo.

The Kyln is part of the overall Marvel Super Heroes area, which is split into four distinct zones, with each taking inspiration from the blockbuster films that continue be a huge hit at the box office.

“We’re thrilled to add these Guardians of the Galaxy to the already popular Marvel Super Heroes experience,” says Madame Tussauds Blackpool General Manager, Matthew Titherington.

“The new addition is a UK-first and a must-visit destination for all Marvel fans, offering the chance to get up close and personal to their favourite heroes from the Guardians of the Galaxy films.

“The new area is offers unique, interactive experiences bespoke to Madame Tussauds Blackpool.”
