This weekend (11/06/2016 – 12/06/2016), the UK tour of the Adventure Time: An Ooo Experience interactive game kicked off and made its first stop at the intu Merry Hill Shopping Centre in the West Midlands. As I live locally, I had to take a look and experience what the interactive game has to offer. An Ooo Experience puts players in front of a giant LED Screen, motion sensors above the screen allow players to interact and play with all the characters and landscapes from Adventure Time.

Players are guided by a real life Wizard of Ooo, they will be taken on a journey through The Candy Kingdom. Along the way, they will transform into life-size versions of their favourite Adventure Time characters – Finn, Jake, Marceline or Princess Bubblegum. They will have the power to shoot magic from their fingertips, move mountains, grow candy floss trees, breathe life into rainbows, battle against the Nightosphere and the players will take part in a massive celebratory dance party with Finn, Jake and various other characters at the end.

Turner UK, Sting Media and Hellicar&Lewis kindly gave me some official photos of the interactive event, more can be seen below:
