Having just purchased Merlin passes, we visited Madame Tussauds this week. Our passes took us to the shorter queue -which was still very long, but not the 3 hours some people had to endure.
It was busy inside, but was still fairly easy to take photos, you just have to be bold and not too patient! it was interesting to see what was works were more popular than others.eg no one took any notice of the Beatles -I would def. say the more popular were the younger figures, and also some English ones were less known to the tourists from abroad. You have to queue got the Queen - but the Queen Mother is just at the side against a pillar, almost not noticed. One direction had a longer queue, but you can bypass this. the political section had great backgrounds which made photos more fun. And if you don't know who someone is, there are plenty of signs.
The spirit of london taxi ride was great, though if you have a little one next to you, going up the hill at an angle means they will be squashed - by that time we were glad to sit down. Finally we shuffled along with the crowd (we missed the scary section out by the way) to join to queue for the 4 D experience. This was another chance to sit down! The film was very good, and the movements etc cleverly done - though we all agreed we didn't like the punch in the back moments.
Word of warning -you can't take pushchairs in, so have to carry little ones, which would be too long I think if your child isn't able to walk for some of the time.
