THE WORLD OF PETER RABBIT™ STORYTIME TRAIL

Hop into this walkthrough experience, where visitors will be able to immerse themselves in The Tale of Peter Rabbit. Little bunnies will be able to crawl under the garden gate, hide in a watering can, and see their reflection in a mirror pool, just like Peter Rabbit!
