Brand new for 2021, an exciting new 3D interactive trail starring Zog the lovable dragon will be landing at Warwick Castle! This activity trail will teach all budding Dragons in-training the skills they need to become a fully-fledged Dragon. While Zog may have struggled to master the essential dragon arts of flying, roaring and breathing fire, he’ll apply his new skills to help children with five tasks that mirror his own lessons. From flying high without actually leaving the ground to testing out fearsome roars...and of course learning to capture a princess, children will collect a stamp at every task. The Zog activity trail is available every day from 12th April to 5th September 2021 and is included in the price of your Warwick Castle ticket.
