Shrek's Adventure

The latest addition to County Hall brings the wold of our favourite green-ogre, Shrek, in his own immersive storytelling attraction. Situated next to the London Aquarium and London Dungeons, and opposite the London Eye Shrek’s Adventure is the perfect addition; it brings the characters from one of the last decade’s most beloved animated films and numerous characters from the world of Dreamworks.

You begin your tour with a sedate walk through the underground corridors of County Hall where you eventually come into contact with Princess Fiona. It’s the beginning of the tour that really packs a punch. The 4D bus ride is not only the best immersive aspect of the experience, but it’s probably better than any other 4D experience that the capitals numerous other attractions offer. Your ride on the 4D bus, driven of course by our very own noble stead , Donkey, crashes straight into one of evil Rumpelstiltskin’s witches, and here the adventure begins.

The tour takes you through a number of environments from the world of Shrek including the swamp, a drinking tavern, an experience with Pinocchio, and a fortune teller, as well as a somewhat puzzling maze. The environments have all been well constructed, bringing with them the smells and sights of Shrek’s world into our reality.

Shrek’s Adventure is the perfect attraction for all those who loved the film series. However, you might feel a little let down as you expect a little more from the environments and the experience. Nevertheless, Shrek’s Adventure is an unforgettable experience, and one that all ogre enthusiasts should endeavour to visit this summer.
