Top Party

The Top Party Zone brings the seemingly unreachable red carpet ceremony and award ceremony of film festivals to every traveler in Madame Tussauds Shanghai. The exhibition hall highlights the interactive experience with new media technology. A regular exhibition hall becomes a top movie scene of celebrities after being transformed through scenario simulation. Travelers may feel as if they were guests of the film festival and enjoyed the spotlight along with their international idols.

Most importantly, you can watch the Special Edition of Ice Age in “the coldest cinema in Shanghai”. I believe that it is also children’s most favorite zone.
