Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Arena Tour heads for Birmingham
AVID gamers have the chance to meet the stars of one of last year's biggest hits when the Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Arena Tour comes to Birmingham's Bull Ring tomorrow (Saturday, August 11).
The multi-platform adventure has been a big-hit with kids with Spyro and his fellow Skylanders becoming firm favourites alongside the likes of Sonic the Hedgehog and Super Mario.
And the arena tour gives them a chance to meet the heroes - and be among the first to get a glimpse of the eagerly anticipated follow-up, Skylanders Giants, set for release this Autumn.
Attractions for visitors to the event, at the Bull Ring centre include:
· Meet the Giants: The highlight of the tour, kids will be among the first in the world to have a look and play of Skylanders Giants. There will be two Giants statues showcasing brand new characters - a huge photo opportunity!
· Trial Turrets: Game trials of both Skylanders Spyro's Adventure and the new Skylanders Giants game will take place all day on eight trial turrets, each featuring screens - so everyone gets a chance to experience new virtual adventures.
· Portal of PowerTM Stage and Play Podium: Hosted on a giant Portal of PowerTM, visitors will be encouraged to climb the podium throughout the day for epic Skylanders play-offs and the chance to win a special prize.
· The Green Screens: All kids will be able to take a little piece of the Skylands world home, with a souvenir photograph taken with their favourite Skylander within the magical Skylands world.
· Activity Zone: Featuring face-painting, fake tattoos and games like 'Match the Pairs', this zone is packed full of fun ways for fans to immerse themselves in the Skylanders world.
· Welcome to the Arena Rewards: Everyone who visits and experiences the magic of the Skylanders Arena will be given a wristband and a goody bag filled with treats.
Doors open from 12.00 noon.
