We were invited to Shrek’s Adventure for the launch of the the brand new How to Train Your Dragon attraction!
The kids love all Dreamworks movies and How to Train Your Dragon is definitely up there as one of their favourites, although Archie was so upset when Hiccups dad died in the second movie, bless him!
On Sunday we went along to Shrek’s Adventure which is situated along the Thames on the South Bank, it is next door to the London Aquarium. It is easily accessible with local overground and underground stations near by; Waterloo, Westminster and Charing Cross.
Upon arriving we were welcomed inside and our pushchair and coats were taken and stored in the cloakroom (pushchairs are not allowed on the tour).
How to Train Your Dragon Launch
First of all we enjoyed an exclusive blogger’s breakfast and the children got involved in shield making, face painting and played some interactive games.
There was an amazing Viking walking around and talking to the kids and they were all mesmerised!
Then it was time for the launch of the How to Train Your Dragon display! Toothless was situated in the middle with Hiccup on his back and the Lightfury to the right and it was beautiful! The colours were magnificent and the children loved it!
Shrek’s Adventure Tour
After the launch of the How to Train Your Dragon Attraction we were invited to go along to Shrek’s Adventure Tour! No photos or videos were allowed here and I can completely understand why so I won’t tell you too much about it because it might ruin it for you!
The tour was a fantastic immersive experience with photo opportunities (which you can purchase at the end). We started the tour with a 3D bus ride, driven by Donkey himself! We met many characters along the way including Fiona, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, The Muffin Man, a Witch, Pinnochio and many more!
During the walk-through experience we were entertained and fully engaged. Children and adults were both in awe of the characters, there was adult humour as well as jokes for children. Our youngest Darcie is only 1 but she wasn’t scared and enjoyed all of the colours and lights on the way round. Archie 9, Maisie 7 and Charlie 4 thought it was brilliant and were so well-behaved during the whole thing because they weren’t bored once!
Where can I book tickets?
I would 100% recommend Shrek’s Adventure, we had an amazing time and we would love to return again! If you would like to go on an adventure, or a “misadventure” with Shrek and the gang you can book your tickets here.
From April onwards you will also be able to book birthday parties at Shrek’s Adventure, how amazing does that sound! There is also a Christmas Grotto event too where children can meet Santa and his elves and receive a Shrektacular gift! That’s definitely one to add to the bucket list!
