For a while be magically taken Far Far Away.
With a sequence of hugely popular films and in more recent years, hitting the West End as a musical, DreamWorks Shrek animation doesn’t seem to be ready to disappear off of the radar just yet. The ogre himself and all of his cheery pals (along with some characters that are out to cause chaos) get set for a brand new quest – to meet you!
Having taken up residence in London’s ideal spot of Waterloo, this experience unlocked its doors to the public this year on Wednesday 1st July.
I have always had a soft spot for the motion picture releases and I was very much looking forward to seeing how green Shrek really was, maybe having a gossip with Princess Fiona and most definitely sharing a joke or two with the majorly humorous Donkey. Plus, who could forget Rumpelstiltskin? Is he truly as mean as the bad guy that he gets portrayed as? – I just couldn’t wait to find out.
All I knew about the tour was that some part of it had been rumoured to involve a bus journey (exciting!) and, it was promised that with my purchased ticket, for a while I would be magically taken Far Far Away.
Both of the statements above fortunately turned out to be true. You cannot be camera shy on this outing as inside you are ushered over by various guides to have yours and your company’s photographs taken. One leads up to when boarding the 4D ‘Shrektacular’ motor vehicle ride and is with the driver – Donkey.
Using the WC is also a must-do at the start as you will be kept amused by the rumbly tummy noises belonging to Shrek.
Kids young (and old!) can spend a jolly 60-minute duration having existence in a real life fairytale, and before leaving you can make a last-minute stop at the souvenir shop to scan the shelves for an extra special gift to remember the trip by.
