What do you get when you combine our new creative workshops with our Unleashed guided experience?

All the makings of movie magic, for one discounted price!


Explore the reimagined corridors of Unleashed, chock-full of eye-popping practical effects from three original films.

Brimming with creative inspiration, learn the art of crafting convincing wounds by sculpting your own scars and scrapes! Perhaps your battle wound was inflicted by one of our Unleashed creatures?

No creative experience is necessary for this workshop. Just bring yourself and your enthusiasm!
