New for 2017 4D Cinema Experience!

The new 4D Cinema Experience brings a whole new dimension to the visitor experience at CONKERS.You are immersed into a world of special effects including lightning and smells! This creates the ultimate cinematic experience. The first show is “The Little Ant Adventures” – a short animation but full of surprises. In Little Ants Adventure, families will ‘meet great friends, Qin and Ding as they try to fly and end up hurtling through the forest using a leaf as their mode of transport’. Cinema-goers will ‘follow them as they slalom through the branches and swim through the river on a rollercoaster journey, brushing with nature at its best’.
