The half a million pound experience, which is a joint venture between Aardman Animations and Heritage Great Britain, is the latest investment by the Liverpool based operator.
It’s being hailed by tourism chiefs in Cornwall as a “national brand” showing “significant confidence” in the region.
The iconic Land’s End signpost was also rebranded to mark the occasion.
Aardman co-founders Peter Lord CBE and David Sproxton CBE joined Heritage Great Britain directors to witness the famous signposts transformation.
Allan Leech, CEO, Heritage Great Britain said:
“The Shaun the Sheep Experience is part of a significant investment programme across all of our sites including The Needles landmark attraction in the Isle of Wight and Snowdon Mountain Railway.”
David Sproxton CBE from Aardman said:
“We’re delighted to partner with Heritage Great Britain who has a strong track record of running successful attractions.”
Malcolm Bell, Head of Visit Cornwall said:
“The Shaun the Sheep experience offers a new dimension to one of Cornwall’s most iconic landmarks.
“This investment represents significant confidence in Cornwall and to have a national brand such as Aardman Animations in Cornwall is a major coup.
“I’m sure it will attract many new visitors to Land’s End both young and young at heart.”
