Scaretour have revealed more information today
The official press release, launching a competition to be part of the new Alien Escape experience at Madame Tussauds London, gives some intriguing clues as to what the attraction will be. Full details will be announced towards the summer but we know the following:
It will be “a terrifying new immersive experience” – so not just an Alien waxwork. It will allow “visitors and Alien fans alike to witness first-hand the terror of being on-board the Covenant ship” as they frantically search for an exit to the heart-racing experience and a pathway back to safety”
Following the demise of Scream: One Way Out, it’s exciting to see that some scare entertainment is returning to the attraction:
"For the first time ever, Madame Tussauds London will be offering one lucky fan the opportunity to become immortalised within the attraction as part of a terrifying new immersive experience, due out later this summer. In advance of Twentieth Century Fox and Ridley Scott’s highly anticipated film Alien: Covenant, the latest chapter in the ground breaking sci-fi thriller Alien franchise, the world famous attraction is calling on fans to show them their best blood-curdling scream for a chance to appear in a soon to be launched, multi-sensory experience.
The new experience, Alien: Escape will allow Madame Tussauds London visitors and Alien fans alike to witness first-hand the terror of being on-board the Covenant ship, following the release of the chilling blockbuster film, Alien: Covenant in theatres globally starting 12 May.
Further details on the experience will be revealed closer to its opening date later this summer, but in the meantime all Alien fans are asked to step up and accept their mission to enter the competition. The process is simple: all they need to do is record a short video of them taking on the role of an ill-fated crew member trapped aboard the Covenant ship, showing their reaction as they desperately try to escape.
Deciding whose petrified scream is to take a starring role in the experience will be Madame Tussauds London’s General Manager, Edward Fuller and Alien Creature Creator, Conor O’Sullivan. The winner will then feature in a video recording at the heart of the experience, as visitors frantically search for an exit to the heart-racing experience and a pathway back to safety.
Edward Fuller, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London, said: “Running a competition like this is a first for our attraction but I know fans will jump at the chance to be part of such an iconic experience. I’m looking forward to judging all the terrifying performances of the competition contestants, and giving our winner a starring role in Alien: Escape when it makes its gruesome arrival later this year.”
“Fear is at the core of the ALIEN franchise and this unique contest offers fans the opportunity to express themselves for a chance to be a part of a truly terrifying experience,” said Greg Lombardo, SVP of Global Live and Location Based Entertainment, FoxNext Location Based Entertainment.
