Aardman and Land’s End to open new family experience

A new, interactive family attraction is coming to Cornwall, England this February, featuring characters from Aardman, the Oscar-winning animation studio.

The new attraction, called “Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience,” is based at Land’s End, and will replace the destination’s successful Shaun the Sheep Experience. It will feature classic characters like Wallace & Gromit and Morph and will offer entertainment and fun experiences for all ages.

With this expansion on the original Shaun the Sheep Experience, the new site of the attraction will give visitors the chance to step into Wallace & Gromit’s living room, take a look into Wallace’s workshop and even help build one of his Cracking Contraptions before they climb into a rocket with a course set for the moon.

Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience is part of a £200,000 investment in Land’s End this season, which will also open a new 4D film in the venue’s 100-seat theater, titled “Return to the Lost World.”

“After a winter of redevelopment at Land’s End, I’m thrilled to be able to announce the opening of a new and expanded Aardman attraction in time for the half-term holidays,” said David Bryans, general manager at Land’s End. “It’s great to be able to bring world-famous characters like Wallace & Gromit to Land’s End, along with old favorites like Morph who will be as familiar to moms and dads as he is to younger children.”

Guests will be able to enjoy interactive games and experiences as they explore the attraction, including drawing boards where they can design their own inventions, and video walls where they can take selfies and watch their faces get “morphed.”

“We’re also bringing a new movie to our 4D cinema for 2018 with ‘Return to the Lost World,’ a sequel to our popular feature ‘The Lost World’ promising bigger and more exciting adventures on an island filled with dinosaurs,” said Bryans.

Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience will open at Land’s End Landmark Attraction on Saturday, Feb. 10, and will be open throughout the week until Sunday, Feb. 18. For more information, visit landsend-landmark.co.uk.
