Situated in County Hall on London’s South Bank, alongside three other popular Merlin attractions – SEA LIFE London Aquarium, the London Dungeon and the Coca Cola London Eye – Shrek’s Adventure! is the result of a unique partnership between Merlin and DreamWorks Animation. The experience features a cast of favourite DreamWorks characters as they have never been seen before, with original scripts, sets and animation created just for this attraction.
The Simworx 4D simulator sets the scene for the 75 minute tour. Guests fly out over London and its well-known landmarks on their journey to Far Far Away in one of 40 seats set on a 3DOF (degrees of freedom) motion base. With favourite DreamWorks characters coming to life around them, a range of special effects adds to the immersive experience, air blasts, water spray, leg ticklers and special effect lighting combining to create the ideal atmosphere, alongside Christie digital projection system for the visuals.
