New York City has been taken over by paranormal spirits, and you’ve guessed it – you’ve been called in to help. In Ghostbusters, Battle for New York, guests earn their ‘ghostbusting’ stripes by ‘blasting’ as many ghosts as possible in this immersive short-and-ride attraction which involves a trackless ride system, projection mapping and iconic scenes re-created from the original film. Meet Slimer, Gozer and the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in this hysterical fun ride, where you can relive this action-packed film, and play the hero!

Do you think you can outsmart Brainy Smurf? Well, in Smurfs Village Playhouse, a unique interactive and animated theatre show, kids can actually: try! Set within a charming mushroom-capped theatre, the Smurfs are about to put on a Smurftacular show but when they experience a bit of a delay, Brainy Smurf is charged with entertaining the crowd. One-by-one, this clever blue friend ‘magically’ points and speaks to guests within the audience, creating a highly engaging and fun show on his own. You’ll also meet Smurfette and Papa Smurf, but the spotlight is on Brainy and all the kids in the theatre who might be the lucky ones to be part of the show!
