|Our ad-hoc visit to Shrek's Adventures|
We had a great time at the Aquarium and Max especially loved the Sharks! After lunch it took some convincing to tell him that the London Eye will not go really really fast once he gets on it, which is what he wanted to do! We did notice the new Shrek's Adventure attraction along the bank and decided we'd take a trip to Far Far Away land instead and I'm so pleased we did!!

You start off meeting Princess Fiona who gives you the storyline and how to get to Far Far Away land - and this, by far, was Max's favourite part - a 4D bus ride with Donkey driving! Very well done and as we fly over the Eye (I did make a point of showing Max again just how slow it was going) we went up and into the clouds where we are met by Toothless and StormFly, then the Madagascar penguins and finally the Kung Fu panda .... on a rocket. My boy's eyes were wide open and he was pointing out the characters and getting me to look in each of the directions too - brilliant!
Rumple's witches cause us to crash land into the kingdom and we set off into Far Far Away land where we watch and interact with a further 9 live themed shows.
The recommended age is 6 but Max is only 4 and he was fine, little bit scared at first but that was more of the unknown than the shows themselves and by the time we were in prison.... he was jumping up and joining in. I'm not going to go into detail of each of the areas as I don't really want to give much away as half the fun is not knowing who we are going to see next - will we see the Muffin Man, the Gingerbread man or even Shrek himself?
