Shrek 4D Adventure
You are ushered into a pre-show chamber where they’ll be greeted by the late, vertically challenged Lord Farquaad himself, who, in his first posthumous appearance, will inform guests of his ghostly scheme to haunt Shrek, Princess Fiona and Donkey. The six-minute video and animatronics preamble will prepare you for entry into the main theatre and the wild adventure to follow.
Once settled in specially designed seats in the main auditorium, you will don OgreVision glasses and will be transported to the fairy tale realm of Duloc, as the screen and the theatre come alive with the tale of the Shrek-Princess Fiona honeymoon adventure. Surprising sensory elements will help propel the narrative experience through seats capable of both vertical and horizontal motion, as well as a few other surprises.
The attraction features a tale that begins as Shrek, Princess Fiona and Donkey set off for a honeymoon but are faced with trouble in the form of the ghost of Lord Farquaad. When Fiona is kidnapped on the way to Honeymoon Hotel Shrek and Donkey are set out into an adventure to rescue her. The chase runs through "Forbidden Forrest" "Dead End Graveyard" & "Fairy Falls" but ends at "Honeymoon Hotel". This is a first class attraction and shouldn’t be missed.
