Starting Saturday 23rd July, Cornwall’s Eden Project is challenging kids (presumably, of all ages) to visit the award-winning attraction for an action-packed summer programme – and help Beano’s Dennis and friends save it from the dreaded CO₂-Zilla!
Loaded with mischief, mayhem and crazy comic fun, an epic adventure awaits this summer…
Martian mega-monster CO₂-Zilla has landed and is threatening to destroy the world… starting with Eden.
Inspired by an exclusive bespoke comic strip, visitors can team up with Dennis, Gnasher, Minnie and friends on an epic quest to defeat CO₂-Zilla, rebel against climate change and Go Wild for the planet.
Join the Eden Project for a wild, unforgettable and blam-tastic adventure, packed with exciting games and activities for the whole family to enjoy.
“We’re excited to be working with Beano this summer as we both believe that stories have the power to change the world,” say the Eden Project team.
“Beano‘s story started over 80 years ago, and they have been entertaining generations of families ever since. Home to an ever growing cast of characters, Beanotown is an imaginative world for people to escape to – a place of fun, excitement and adventure… just like Eden.
“Storytelling is also a part of our DNA here at Eden. Our story started over twenty years ago, when the Eden Project site was just a sterile clay pit; an exhausted and barren landscape. Today, the Eden Project has bloomed in to a beautiful global garden – a living landscape full of life and stories about our world today and how we can act together to protect it for future generations.
“In order to protect this planet, Spaceship Earth, we must come together to address the planetary emergency. So, like Dennis and friends teaming up on their quest to save Eden from the evil CO₂-Zilla, we know that there is an undeniable power when we work together for the benefit of all living things.”
Timed entry tickets for the Eden Project summer programme are now on sale. All visits to Eden must be pre-booked in advance, including those who visit for free, such as Eden Project Members, existing Annual Passholders and Locals’ Passholders, carers and under-fives.
