At the “Opening Night Party” you could tell Robert Pattinson why you love the “Twilight” series. You could also exchange new acting tips with Angelina Jolie and reminisce with Leonardo DiCaprio about the most memorable scenes in “The Titanic.” When you head over to the “Music Experience,” you could try a duo with Taylor Swift or Lady Gaga. The “Music Experience” is incredible – it’s totally interactive and even has electric guitars and live drums. The most exciting attraction is the high tech lighting feature that beams your movements onto a video screen. So you can actually check out yourself in action on the big screen! Also, experience the unforgettable “Sports Zone” which is also highly interactive. There you can chat with Eli Manning of the New York Giants and boxing legend Evander Holyfield about fitness and technique.

Don’t leave without immersing yourself in the “Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience” – see above. Venture into the secret command center where you can release your powers along with superheroes like Spider Man and the Hulk. If you succeed at their tests, you can go onto the amazing “Marvel Super Heroes Cinema 4D Experience.”

As tour guides bring the theatre district alive, you can listen with your own headset to tunes from Broadway hits and interviews with Hal Prince, Kitty Carlisle Hart and other Broadway favorites. Walkin’ Broadway organizes the tours, which leave three times each day from the Times Square Museum and Visitor Center on 7th Avenue.

Restaurant Row

Has the excitement of exploring all these attractions made you hungry? Do you love to chat and unwind with good friends over a delicious meal? Then why not head to Restaurant Row and enjoy the incredible selection of delicious cuisine from all over the globe? Restaurant Row is on 46th Street between Broadway and 9th Avenue.

You can sample the very best from celebrity chefs like Lidia Bastianich. If you like Italian food you could try the historic, family owned Barbetta restaurant. Or if you prefer French cuisine, you could try dining at the Rivage. If you’ve never tasted Russian cuisine before you might want to sample the food at the Firebird. As you relax in the restaurant enjoying your meal, you might get an unexpected surprise – your favorite Broadway Star could be there too!
