Aardman has announced plans for a Shaun the Sheep Land at Skånes Djurpark, Sweden. The new 3D family attraction is set to open early in the summer of 2016 and is budgeted to cost around 5 million pounds.
Commenting on the new attraction, Håkon Lund, Chairman of Lund Gruppen, said, ”Skånes Djurpark’s vision is to become the number1 destination for families in Sweden. We could not have found a better partner in Shaun the Sheep and Aardman. The team of Aardman is passionate and the world’s best in their industry, entertaining children and adults globally. They create stories that are universal and without borders which has been an important factor in partnering with them for this project in a location close to both Denmark, Germany, Norway and Eastern Europe.”
“Aardman strives to collaborate with like-minded partners who share our core values in providing quality family entertainment experiences. We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Skanes Djurpark and the Lund Group to premier Shaun the Sheep’s first ever international family attraction in Sweden. It will be a world’s first and a great way to give families an opportunity to immerse themselves into the fun and excitement of Shaun the Sheep” added Sean Clarke, Head of Rights and Brand Development at Aardman.
