The area has four slides, a playground, and wet play areas. Guests under 48 inches tall must be accompanied by a supervising companion, and all adults must be accompanied by a child.

The height measurement post features drawings of Shrek and Fiona’s triplets — Felicia, Fergus, and Farkle. There are small ogre footprints on the ground, which can also be seen throughout the play area.

Shrek's Swamp for Little Ogres slide

All signage is themed to look like they may have been painted by Shrek and his family. This includes the signs on this slide, which read “Get Lost! In the Fun!” and “Stay clear of slide… or else!”

What appears to be an outhouse at first glance is also the entrance to one of the slides. Guests will find that on the way down, the slide makes many different fart noises.

Within Shrek’s Swamp for Little Ogres, guests will encounter Pinocchio’s Fact Shack. Once the bell is rung, a Pinocchio animatronic will share a fact, but his nose will let you know whether the fact is actually true.

There are water blasters in the wet play area. During our visit, none of the water features in the land were operational.

Guests looking to dry off can hop into an “ogre dryer” that features artwork of the Big Bad Wolf and the Three Little Pigs. The side of the dryer reads “I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and I’ll blow your clothes dry!”

Fans of “Shrek” have more than just this area to enjoy. There’s also a new Shrek, Fiona, and Donkey meet and greet location; an interactive King Harold play area; and “Shrek”-themed treats. For more, you can check out our full tour of DreamWorks Land ahead of its official grand opening.
