Warwick Castle will launch a brand new family attraction when it reopens on 12 April.
The much-anticipated Zog and the Quest for the Golden Star interactive 3D trail will feature five fun lessons from Madame Dragon’s school and promises to enthral children as they test-out awesome roars, capture a princess and fly without their feet ever leaving the ground.
Collecting a stamp at every task, the final challenge sees children join Sir Gadabout’s school for ambitious knights, before they head off to meet Zog for a photo and collect their very own golden star.
Based on the book written by award-winning author Julia Donaldson and illustrated by the talented Axel Scheffler, Zog is known and loved by children all around the world. Thanks to this collaboration between Warwick Castle and Magic Light Pictures, the multi Oscar-nominated and BAFTA award-winning production company behind the animated adaptations of Zog, children can now live the story of this loveable dragon themselves, in the perfect setting to capture their imaginations.
Although the castle's indoor attractions will remain closed in line with government restrictions, visitors will still be able to explore the site's 64 acres of historic grounds, including the Pageant Field, Peacock Garden and Central Courtyard.
There will be plenty to keep the children entertained, from the Horrible Histories® Maze, which is fun for all the family, to roaming castle characters including princesses, knights and the renowned birds of prey.
Those looking to get active and enjoy some spectacular countryside views can climb The Conqueror’s Fortress, the highest point on the estate, or take a stroll to The River Island - home to the Castle’s magnificent Trebuchet.
Selected food and drink outlets around the Castle grounds will be offering a takeaway service for hot and cold drinks and snacks.
Single household overnight stays are also on offer for an extra-special family getaway, in woodland lodges at the Knight’s Village*. Takeaway meals can be ordered ahead of the reopening of the Knight’s Village banqueting hall from May 17th - subject to government confirmation.
