I enjoyed this event. It wasn’t that scary and didn’t last very long, but I think the fact that my boyfriend and I were in a small group, with only two other couples, made it seem scarier. As I said, it was a short event. It lasted about 25-30...continued

It was what the description of it says.. and if you get scared easily (like the 5 girls that I ended up touring with)who were screaming at any sound.. it could be freaky! I ended up lauging a lot and screaming loudly at the people who were there...continued

I thought it was really lame. It should have been a lot longer and More characters should have been involved to scare you. I think more could have been done with the wax statues to add to the creepiness. I have to agree with the other reviewer,...continued

Quotes & Highlights

Watch a video preview of After Dark at Madame Tussauds.


Have you ever wondered what happens when the lights go out?

What dark secrets lurk in the depths of the world-famous wax museum? History tells of a dark side that few care to revisit. During the French Revolution, Madame Tussaud was forced to dig through piles of executed nobles’ bodies, creating death masks of famous victims and collecting gruesome artifacts for her travelling Chamber of Horrors like the guillotine blade that beheaded Marie Antoinette.

Do you believe the stories of restless spirits, some tormented and others playful? Do you fear being trapped overnight? You won’t want to miss your chance to find out what happens at night as Madame Tussauds keeps its doors open late this haunting season. This Halloween, we’ll take you where you’ve always been afraid to go and show you that it’s not all glamour and celebrities.

Your heart races as you prepare to begin your journey. Guided by a single light in the still of darkness, will you make it all the way? Is there life after dark? Will you survive Scream, their Chamber of Horrors? Prepare yourself for a restless night after a tour that will keep you in constant fear.

Who ever said you shouldn’t be afraid of the dark…lied!
