Aardman unveils new interactive attraction at Cornwall’s Land’s End

A new interactive family attraction is being unveiled in Cornwall this half-term starring the cast of beloved characters from the Oscar-winning animation studio, Aardman.

The Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience attraction is based at Land’s End and replaces the successful Shaun the Sheep Experience.

Aardman characters Wallace & Gromit and Morph join Shaun’s farmyard friends within the attraction, offering an experience for all ages, themed around some of the studio’s biggest TV and film successes.

The new site gives visitors the chance to step in to Wallace and Gromit’s living room, explore Wallace’s workshop and help build one of his Cracking Contraptions, before climbing on board a rocket to the moon.

Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience is part of a £200,000 investment in Land’s End this winter which also sees a new 4D film arrive at the venue titled Return to the Lost World.

David Bryans, general manager at Land’s End, said: “After a winter of redevelopment at Land’s End, I am thrilled to be able to announce the opening of a new and expanded Aardman attraction in time for the half-term holidays.

“It’s great to be able to bring the world-famous characters like Wallace and Gromit to Land’s End, along with old-favourites like Morph who will be as familiar to mums and dads as he is to younger children.

“Visitors will be able to enjoy a series of interactive games and experiences while exploring the venue, including drawing boards where guests can design their own inventions and video walls where they can take a selfie and then watch as their faces are ‘Morphed.’”

Aardman Presents: A Grand Experience opens at Land’s End Landmark Attraction on Saturday, February 10th and will remain open throughout half-term week until Sunday, February 18th.
