This has now ended, explore more great events here or buy tickets here.

Discover The Gruffalo Spotters 2 App on the trail of our Treetop Walk on your next visit! This second version of the Gruffalo Spotters App has additional features and new gesture-recognition technology making the experience truly interactive, including video recording and selfie mode!

On the trail families can interact with the 3D characters from the film on the self-led trails, which are also packed with fantastic facts about forest animals, and fun activities. Through cutting-edge face and body recognition technology, the characters now look at the children directly, encouraging them to play along. If you roar, the Gruffalo roars back!

Photographs can be saved on your device and you can also create mini-movies of your time with the characters that can all be shared using the #GruffaloSpotters hashtag. The final new feature is selfie mode, so you can get a brilliant close up with the main characters, The Gruffalo and Mouse!
