Madame Tussauds Sydney officially launches new AR experience with Matty J

October 6, 2017 Attraction No Comments Email Email

Last night at their official launch party, Madame Tussauds Sydney unveiled their all new augmented reality (AR) experience featuring the much-loved Matty J. Keen to get in on the fun, Matty J’s new love Laura was the first to try out the experience for the first time.

“It’s so surreal seeing the augmented reality experience come to life after weeks of development. It’s actually so cool; when I’m sitting down next to Laura, and the digital Matty is next to her as well, it looks so life-like!” said Matty ‘J’ Johnson of his new AR experience. “It’s easily one of the most unique opportunities I’ve had the honour of being a part of. I’m so happy to be part of the Madame Tussauds family!”

The new state of the art feature is a first-of-its-kind at the Sydney attraction and forms part of the all-new PARTY experience. As part of the AR experience, guests can interact with the hottest man of the moment, Matty J in a physical, real-world environment. Everyone is invited to take a seat on the couch, steal a kiss and even take home a photo of their special date!

“It’s an exciting time for Madame Tussauds Sydney as we continue to evolve the brand and introduce real-world elements that transport our guests into the future of technology. In addition to working with the most innovative technologies, working with Australia’s latest and greatest talent, has been really exciting,” said Mark Connolly, General Manager of Madame Tussauds Sydney.

The new experience is available to Madame Tussauds guests for the next few months. There’s just one thing missing – with the final rose well and truly gone, this party is B.Y.O.R (bring your own rose that is!).

From posing with the stars and experiencing the all-new interactive features,  Madame Tussauds Sydney is open daily from 9.30am and promises start-to-finish fun for the whole family in the heart of Sydney’s CBD in Darling Harbour.
