Things to do at Shrek’s Adventure London review
Shrek’s Adventure is located next to the Sea Life aquarium London and just a short walk from the London Eye. It is a great family-friendly attraction based on the Shrek films. It’s a great immersive experience. You are part of the story!
The first thing to know and to note about Shrek’s Adventure is that you can’t take photos nor can you film any of the shows. Had phones/cameras been allowed it would have spoilt the immersive experience.
You start by having a series of photos taken of yourselves which you can purchase as a package at the end. You don’t have to do this if you don’t want to. You then move into a room where you all have to sing ‘I’m a believer’. If you don’t then the Magic bus driven by donkey won’t work. You are all handed 3D wrap around glasses and you embark on a magical bus ride together. It’s great fun with the wind blowing in your faces and an almost roller coaster feel to the ride – but don’t worry it’s just a simulator. You are now on a quest to find Shrek, but whoops the bus lands on one of Rumplestiltskin’s witches.
When you leave the bus the real immersive aspect to the experience begins. You move through different rooms experiencing different scenes of the story as you go. The actors in each of the rooms are excellent. They are engaging and fun and involve the kids and adults as much as possible.
You really do feel like you are part of the story. You meet good guys and bad guys along the way and you even end up in jail at one point and have to break free with Shrek’s help. There are lots of surprises along the way which I won’t spoil. Let’s just say you feel certain things, you meet lots of mirrors and some water may be involved.
You finish the story with a meet and greet with Shrek. Afterwards, you move into a series of rooms with different characters and scenes from Madagascar and How to train a dragon which you can pose for photos by.
