Once upon a time (in 2015), in a land far, far away (on London's South Bank) a magical tourist attraction was created where characters from Shrek were brought to life.

Shrek's Adventure is a one-of-a-kind indoor “walk-and-ride” tourist attraction in London inspired by the hit DreamWorks films Shrek, Shrek 2, and Shrek The Third, and allows children to come face-to-face with the likes of Shrek, Fiona, Donkey and many, many more.

The founding of Shrek's Adventure also marks the first time that Merlin (Europe's largest visitor attraction operator) collaborated with a Hollywood studio to license the use of its own characters and stories for an attraction.

Shrek's Adventure boasts ten hilarious shows featuring classic sets (like Shrek's Swamp) from the many Shrek films, a breathtaking 4D ride with special effects and fantastic DreamWorks animation, and, most importantly, a tour where kids can help crack the code and save Shrek so he gets back to his beloved Swamp safely.
