Wax museum’s new exhibit will immerse visitors in the heart of the jungle of Skull Island.

Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds London, in partnership with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, have opened Kong: Skull Island, a new experience based on the upcoming film.

The new attraction will see visitors entirely immersed in the jungle of Skull Island, where they’ll have to journey through bamboo, foliage and vines before encountering the first wax likeness from the film, Tom Hiddleston as his character Captain James Conrad. Visitors will also come face-to-face with an 18-foot animatronic Kong head.

"Madame Tussauds is famous for providing the most authentic, thrilling and fun experiences for our guests so we are excited to launch our largest ever animatronic today as part of Kong: Skull Island," says Anna Domingo, general manager, Madame Tussauds New York. "We worked closely with Legendary Pictures to ensure our animatronic head is made to the exact film-scale, so visitors really will come face-to-face and feel the power and scale of the Kong depicted on the big screen."

The Kong: Skull Island experience is now open in the wax museum’s New York and London locations. Additionally, the experience will remain as a permanent addition to the New York location.

Kong: Skull Island will launch in theaters this Friday.
