Madame Tussauds San Francisco Announces “Who Do You Want to Meet?” Campaign

August 23, 2014 Attraction No Comments Email Email

Today, Madame Tussauds San Francisco kicks off a campaign to bring the wax likeness of the Bay Area’s favorite sports icon to its newest Fisherman’s Wharf location.

From August 18 to September 21, basketball, football, soccer, and hockey fans have the chance to vote for their favorite player via the Madame Tussauds San Francisco Facebook page.

The winning star will be immortalized in wax and unveiled at the attraction in December 2014, where visitors will be able to get up close and personal with the famed figure. Nominees include sports legends representative of the Bay Area’s most-cherished hometown teams: Willie Mays, Buster Posey, Colin Kaepernick, CoCo Krisp, Patrick Marleau, Brandi Chastain, Sebastian Janikowski, and Stephen Curry.

“We’re committed to capturing the local spirit at each of our locations, and continuously engage with residents to make the Madame Tussauds experience as authentic as possible,” says Adrea Gibbs, General Manager of Madame Tussauds San Francisco. “With the launch of this campaign, we’re excited to celebrate the rich history of sports stars and passionate fans in the Bay Area, both of which are fundamental to its unique culture and energy.”

Madame Tussauds allows guests to engage with their favorite stars, including musicians, actors, athletes and politicians. This family attraction provides visitors a fun, interactive experience with figures that take months to design and complete. As with all Madame Tussauds attractions, there are no ropes or barriers so visitors are able to examine the incredible details and artistry of these intricate, lifelike figures.
