If you’ve ever been to Vegas you’ve probably had a hangover; but up until the New Year you’d never had one like the Wolfpack. Now, at Madame Tussauds, you’ll experience the confusion, humor, and even wildlife the characters do in the hit film “The Hangover” during the brand new ‘The Hangover Experience.’
In January, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas inside the Venetian, added a wax double of Alan (played by Zach Galifianakis) wearing his “Human Tree” T-shirt, white jeans and of course the famous satchel. He joined “The Hangover” star Phil (played by Bradley Cooper) who was already a part of the wax museum.
The best friends appear in a 1,100-square-foot room based on the disheveled hotel room in “The Hangover.” And yes, from the second you walk in, it does look like the room from the movie. With chairs tipped over, bras hanging from pictures, frames knocked off the wall, and more, you will feel as if you were right in the fun.
Created in conjunction with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Madame Tussauds began making “The Hangover Experience” in July 2014. The figure of “Alan” however, began work in March 2014 and the result is a dead ringer for the character. The creative team researched and incorporated more than 200 measurements for the initial clay mold and managed to capture his awkward mannerisms and funny poses from the film.
There is also a replica of the wedding chapel from the Warner Bros. film as well as a replica of the Las Vegas Metropolitan police car the guys stole in the movie. After creating the mold, one artist spent six weeks inserting each strand of hair by hand, up to 10,000 strands. His acrylic eyes and teeth were the last part of the figure to go into place.
Now, we just have to wait and see if Madame Tussauds has any plans on incorporating the rest of the wolf pack including Stu (played by Ed Helms), Doug (played by Justin Bartha), and the tiger. Although if you peek into the bathroom in the hotel room you will get a little surprise roar from the big cat.
