MADAME TUSSAUDS LAS VEGAS DEBUTS WORLD’S FIRST HANGOVER WEDDING CHAPEL
Small, Intimate Chapel for Up to 30 People, Inspired by the Blockbuster Comedy, “The Hangover”
LAS VEGAS (September 2015) – Now available only in Las Vegas: the world’s first wedding chapel inspired by “The Hangover.” Jägermeister shots; Elvis as the minister; “Phil” and “Alan” as witnesses for the wedding and more are now available for daring couples looking for a raucous way to say “I do.” Debuting this month at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, the chapel can accommodate weddings up to 30 people. This wedding locale is now the centerpiece of the attraction’s newest themed room, The Hangover Experience, based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ “The Hangover.”
Before guests enter the chapel, they can meander in the notorious hotel room that includes a roaring tiger in the bathroom (surprise!) and “Phil” (played by Bradley Cooper in the films). Outside the chapel doors awaits Zach Galifianakis as “Alan,” appropriately styled in his iconic “Human Tree” T-shirt, white jeans, sneakers, and of course his famous satchel. Just for good measure, there is also an actual Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department vehicle.
As for the chapel, it is white and can be lit to complete transform into any color of the couple’s choosing. The ceiling drips with chandeliers as they dangle above the white chairs that fill the chapel, along with a podium and flowers at the end of the aisle.

ABOUT THE HANGOVER EXPERIENCE
Created in conjunction with Warner Bros., Madame Tussauds began creating The Hangover Experience in July 2014. As for the “Alan” figure, a team of 20 Madame Tussauds studio artists began creating it in March 2014. They were inspired by his comic demeanor in the film, including his ensemble, as well as his look and mannerisms. The team began the process by researching and incorporating more than 200 measurements for the initial clay mold. Once the clay mold was completed, the artists created a plaster cast, into which they poured a mixture of beeswax and Japan wax. Over the course of six weeks, one artist inserted each strand of hair by hand, sporting up to 10,000 strands. Lastly, acrylic eyes and teeth, as well as lifelike paint were added as the finishing touches.
The Nevada Film Office (NFO) says the film’s influence can still be felt to this day – from guests asking Caesars Palace’s front desk if Caesar indeed slept there, to visitors wanting to see all of the sites featured in the movie. To date, “The Hangover” remains the highest grossing R-rated film of all time with a domestic gross of more than $300 million. According to the NFO, “The Hangover” was shot over 15 days bringing nearly a $4 million economic boost to the area.
