Madame Tussauds Is Letting People Spend the Night — and We Don't Know How to Feel About It
Taylor Swift probably throws the best sleepovers ever — and now you’re invited.
But Tay won’t be the only celeb at this star-studded pajama party. Also joining? Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, Kylie Jenner, Keith Urban, Reba, and even Meghan Markle.
The only catch? These aren’t real celebrities, just exact replicas made out of wax at Madame Tussauds. Creepy? Oh yeah. But will it still be a party? For sure.
For the first time ever, Madame Tussauds is opening its doors for private, overnight stays. For the nights of April 5, 6, and 7, seven Madame Tussauds locations — New York City, Hollywood, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Orlando, Nashville, and Washington D.C. — will be hosting a “squad” of up to four people who will live like stars, surrounded by stars in the wax museum.
Each overnight visit comes with VIP entry into Madame Tussauds, a private “selfie-butler” to snap the perfect Instagrams, a behind-the-scenes look at how the lifelike wax figures are made, dinner, snacks and a breakfast basket, and plenty of Madame Tussauds swag to take home.
But this isn’t just any regular sleepover. Do you think Beyoncé would sleep in a sleeping bag? No. Neither will you, because Madame Tussauds and Booking.com have outfitted each location with actual beds (lol not wax) to sleep in — though, who actually sleeps at a sleepover?
And to make it even better, each location is decorated to bring iconic elements of the city into the Madame Tussauds sleepover. In Nashville you’ll find Hatch Prints and cowboy hats while the New York City location boasts subway signs and miniature versions of iconic skyscrapers. But that all pales in comparison to the fact you’ll be sleeping in a building with hundreds of wax versions of the people who gave us pop culture hits like “Hit Me Baby One More Time.”
The tricky part about this sleepover is booking. Since there’s only one reservation for each of the three nights it’s important to read this next part very, very carefully: Booking begins starting at 12 p.m. Eastern on March 28 on Booking.com. So like trying to get Britney tickets, make sure you have your computer — or 12 — ready to go. Each city has their own listing which can be found here: New York City, Hollywood, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Orlando, Nashville, and Washington D.C.
Overnight stays at Madame Tussauds are $99 a night. But your new profile pic with (basically) Rihanna? (Or recreating “House of Wax” with Paris Hilton…) Priceless.
If you need advice about how to prepare for your this (or any) sleepover, head to your VHS collection and pull out “You’re Invited to Mary-Kate and Ashley’s Sleepover Party.” Sleepovers haven’t changed that much since 1995.
