Madame Tussauds reimagined its flagship location in the heart of Times Square with new theming and key wax figures in its party area full of A-Listers, now dubbed the Glow Gala. The room includes 19 celebrities, including new, never-before-seen wax figures of Ariana Grande and P. Diddy. Many of the other wax figures, like RuPaul and Lady Gaga, don illuminated looks inspired by the Met Gala. Katy Perry’s wax figure, suspended from the ceiling, wears a recreation of her 2019 Met Gala chandelier dress.

Other recent improvements to Madame Tussauds New York include the recently added MARVEL 4D Universe cinema experience, the expanded MARVEL Hall of Heroes and an upcoming interactive horror-themed experience this fall.
