Merlin creates ‘A-Z of entertainment’ at-home activities

While Merlin locations around the world are closed, the company has released lots of activities for families to complete at-home during the Easter holidays.

Merlin’s ‘A to Z of Entertainment’ features a mixture of videos, live streams, celebrity scares and activities. Merlin staff from around the world have helped to create these activities to help keep families entertained whilst they are at home.

Chief Development Officer, Mark Fisher, said that “Merlin’s DNA is about delivering fun and entertainment to families. Just because, sadly, the physical doors to our attractions are shut this will not stop us from offering families amazing, memorable experiences.”

Below is a sample of the 26 activities available from Merlin.
