The next stop on your fun adventure is a stopover at Shrek’s home, The Swamp. But uh-oh, looks like Rumpelstiltskin has set up camp here and it seems he’s unhappy with all the visitors.

At the Swamp, you’ll be tested on a mission to find gold and persuade the Fortune Teller to give you advice on how to appease grumpy old Rumpelstiltskin. Do you have what it takes to track down the goods in time?

Have you found the gold? Shrek-tacular! Now you can pay the fortune teller and take a look at her all-knowing crystal ball.

Don’t get too comfortable Rumpelstiltskin has figured out where you are, so you’ll need to hurry to the Poison Apple pub for shelter.

The maze of mirrors

The next leg of your journey is the delicate Mirror Maze Madness, where you’ll be tasked with finding Sleeping Beauty without bumping into your own reflection.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, do you have what it takes to walk through this hall?

The bakery

Getting through this maze of mirrors was hard work, but luckily you made it to The Bakery.

Oh my god, it looks like you don’t have all the ingredients you need to whip up your own gingerbread man, you’ll have to try and find Donkey and see if he can help you.

The prison

Just when you thought you had successfully completed all of your tasks, it seems that Rumpelstiltskin tracked you down and locked you in the prison.

What do you see?  Have you found the gold?  Impressive!  You can now pay the fortune teller and take a look at her omniscient crystal ball
