KONG: Skull Island

Welcome to Skull Island!

In partnership with Ledgendary Pictures and Warner Brothers Pictures, Madame Tussauds New York and Madame Tussauds London will bring the experience to life with an eighteen-foot, multi-sensory animatronic head of the gigantic ape that will wow and terrify in the larger than life Kong: Skull Island experience.

Guests can expect to embark on an adventure deep into the tropical environment of the infamous Skull Island, where they will be challenged to evade the traps of colossal petrifying spiders and uncover artifacts from the film. As they journey through the secluded bamboo jungle, they will be joined by a new wax figure of Captain James Conrad, played by British actor Tom Hiddleston in the film, before coming face to face with the enormous breathing, blinking, snarling and roaring mystical monster himself.

Entrance to KONG Skull island is included with your admission to Madame Tussauds New York.

Madame Tussauds New York in its entirety takes approximately 90 minutes.

The KONG: Skull Island Experience transports you to the mystical Skull Island. It's like stepping into the movie where you come face to face with an animatronic Kong head scaled to the true size of the King himself.

The technology connected with the use of electronics to animate figures. For example, it’s like creating an 18’ tall Kong head and adding a mini internet for a brain.

The KONG head is over 18 feet tall. That’s taller than 1.5 NYC subway cars, 21,600 stacked MetroCards, 30 Nathan’s hot dogs standing end to end, thirty stairs high… well you get the idea!

Madame Tussauds New York is the only location in the United States to experience KONG: Skull Island; however, you can also experience this at Madame Tussauds London.
