Madame Tussauds Spirit of London ride has chosen to use LED lighting in an overhaul of it’s equipment.

With the ride reaching its 25th anniversary, the on-site AV team were eager to upgrade the attraction’s lighting to more energy efficient, eco-friendly LED fixtures, as part of their overall environmental policy.

A.C. Special Projects, a specialist lighting and audio visual installation firm, managed the specification and supply of over 250 various ProLights LED fixtures, including warm and full color-mixing luminaires providing discreetly installed full set, scenic, key and effects lighting.

According to, ProLights MiniEclipse Warm White LED profiles fitted with 36° lenses are used to pick out key figures, such as Sir Christopher Wren introducing the rebuilding of St. Paul’s Cathedral. More than 60 ProLights DisplayCOB Warm White and DisplayCOB RGB Full Colour fixtures provide homogenised output illumination for main set lighting on the ride. The DisplayCOB RGB fixtures were also used to help achieve the technically challenging ‘Pepper’s Ghost’ illusion in the Great Plague scene.

Finally, a ProLights RadonStar LED fixture provides a ‘time tunnel’ effect through the fog tunnel as guests enter the Elizabethan age.

Officials at Madame Tussauds in London estimate that the new LED fixtures will result in a lighting energy saving of at least 70%, helping reduce our building’s overall running costs and carbon footprint.
