Picsolve opens Royal Wedding-themed Experience Wall at Madam Tussauds London

Picsolve has debuted a brand new visitor experience at Madame Tussauds London, starring the newly-wed Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Designed to immerse guests in the excitement of the Royal Wedding, the Experience Wall is a seamless photo capture solution that places the guest at the centre of the experience. Guests pose in front of a 15ft (4.5m) floor-to-ceiling HD screen, with Tussauds' latest works, Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex and a restyled Prince Harry, against a backdrop of their choosing.

The new wall replaces the traditional green screen backdrop, and is the first of its kind to open in Europe, with Experience Walls having previously opened at the One World Observatory and National Geographic Encounter Ocean Odyssey in New York City. "We are hugely excited to be launching the Experience Wall in Europe and believe there is no better couple than Harry and Meghan to help showcase the technology," said Picsolve CEO David Hockley.

"Madame Tussauds' London is one of the most recognisable destinations in Europe and we believe this is the ideal opportunity for us to cement Picsolve's position as the number one content creation partner for world class destinations," Hockley added.
