Virtual reality - ghost busters!! We loved it, but what really made the visit worth every penny was the platinum upgrade so that we could try the ghost busters virtual reality experience!!! Keep in mind that we are two female friends over 40, and we have never laughed so hard in our lives!!!😂

"Great visit- better than expected"

My wife and I were in the City for about 8 hours, part of an annual Christmas Season bus trip. It was cold and snowing lightly, so we were looking for a warm place. I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would - I definitely liked the statues, but even more so the fact that with the multiple floors and the multiple groupings, I didn't feel crowded or rushed. Could move at your own pace. On of the lower floors there is a window area that extends out somewhat - Can look up and down 42nd street. Happened to be great view, was about 430 and it was flurrying. Pleasant surprise was they served beer (wine also, liquor?) on several floors. An unexpected surprise to buy a beer and drink it while walking around. My wife thought Madame Tussauds was great too - she really loved the movie and TV stars. Total visit about 2 hours (20 - 30 minutes in line?) Only slight negative was it took a while in line - but again, didn't feel crowded or rushed once inside.

"Ghostbusters: Dimension"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed May 22, 2018 NEW
I recently went to NYC for a weekend vacation and booked the Ghostbusters: Dimension experience on-line through Viator prior to traveling. The ticket also included entry to Madame Tussauds, which was a bonus. Although there was a problem with my electronic pass, the friendly staff sorted me out very quickly and efficiently. Before I knew it, I was suited up in my 'body armor' and VR headset and briefed and in I went. This was my first VR experience and it blew my mind... It was a hyper realistic and exhilarating, tons of fun and I absolutely loved it. I won't go any further re spoilers, but next time I'm in NYC I will be returning to do it again. Ghostbusters: Dimension is far and away the best attraction at Madame Tussauds (IMHO) and the 5 star rating is for them, with 3 stars for Madame Tussauds in general. Big shout out to all the Ghostbusters staff for an awesome experience.

Met so many famous people but they couldn't move so I think something was wrong with them. Great time.
