For the very first time in history, Forestry England has confirmed that an alien has crash landed into Haldon Forest Park! Lu-La, from the Shaun the Sheep Movie: Farmageddon (in UK cinemas 18 October) is an impish and adorable alien with amazing powers. She has been stranded in the forest and needs to charge her communicator so that she can get a message back home to call for rescue!
Haldon Forest Park invites families from 1 October to help Shaun the Sheep with his mission to get Lu-La home before a sinister organisation can capture her. In a race against time, children helping Shaun the Sheep will need to search for UV puzzles along the self-led Glow Trail with a UV light pen-torch.
Also available at 20 other Forestry England sites, children will need to solve the puzzles they find on the trail with the free Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon Glow Trail app or activity sheet to start charging the communicator. Mini challenges along the trail, such as how many trees you can touch in 25 seconds and how many steps you can run on the spot in 20 seconds to escape the Hazmats, will further charge the communicator and help Lu-La get home.
Once all of the puzzles and challenges have been completed, the app will present an augmented reality hidden spaceship where families can have their picture taken.
The new game is supported by Sport England using funding raised by National Lottery players and hopes to encourage around 500,000 visits from families getting active countrywide.
A Shaun the Sheep Farmageddon Glow Trail kit will be available to buy on site for £3.50 and includes a UV pen-torch, Shaun the Sheep ears, a clue sheet, an activity booklet, a sticker sheet and a pencil to make note of your answers.
The new self-led trail which has been supported by Sport England is a fantastic way to get families active with lots of fun challenges to get you moving along the way. A baa-rilliant way to get families active, children aged 6 – 12 will love the challenge of helping Shaun to get Lu-La home and beat Agent Red and the Hazmats.
Haldon Forest Park will also host a Shaun the Sheep Family Glow Run on 30 October. This fun event is suitable for the whole family to run a Shaun the Sheep themed trail and experience the forest as it gets dark. Characters from the film will be there cheering runners on and there will be lots of fun glow-in-the-dark elements.
