DreamWorks Animation and Merlin Entertainments have teamed up to bring everyone’s favorite ogre to London’s South Bank in summer 2015. The yet-to-be-named attraction — the first of six to roll out over the next nine years — will feature an interactive walk-through adventure, a courtyard where guests can meet Shrek and his swamp friends and a rotating exhibit highlighting DreamWorks Animation films.
“This exciting new attraction looks to be a fantastic addition to London’s family-friendly offerings, providing children, families and visitors of all ages a wonderful day out in the heart of the capital,” said Gordon Innes, CEO of London & Partners, the Mayor’s official promotional organization for London. “The Shrek films are incredibly popular with children all over the globe, and we are delighted to be welcoming Shrek and friends to our city." www.dreamworksanimation.com, www.merlinsentertainment.boz
