We've been asked by Activision, the makers of Skylanders Spyro's Adventure, to find 60 Mumsnet families to go to a Skylanders Spyro's Adventure Nickelodeon Event day in London or Liverpool with their family. You'll have exclusive access to the event for a couple of hours before it opens to the public.

The Event will be going on all day, 9am-7pm but you can come and go as you please - the exclusive Mumsnet access session is 9-10.30am. Here are the dates:

Saturday 10th September in Liverpool - Williamson Square, Liverpool NOW CLOSED
Sunday 11th September in Liverpool - Williamson Square, Liverpool NOW CLOSED
Sunday 18th September in London - Westfield Stratford City (please note this is the new Westfield centre in East London)

Skylanders Spyro's Adventure is designed for children aged 7-12 years but the event is a day out for the whole family (up to 6 people per family can attend, including children of all ages). Here's what will be happening:
· The Trial Turrets: The highlight of the tour, your child(ren) will be amongst the first in the world to play Skylanders Spyro's Adventure. There will be two Trial Turrets, each featuring six screens, with game trials going on all day.
· The Main Stage area: Nickelodeon presenter Matt Walker will lead proceedings, so expect stage shows packed full of cheekiness, laughs, slime and prizes galore! There will be a live 'Burp off', the chance to 'dress up your parents', quizzes and games, including: Jelly Fishing, Ball Pool relay, Hoola Hoops, Build a Krabby Patty relay and Air Guitar, where kids can dress up in wigs and costumes and play air guitar in front of the Sponge Bob and Patrick videos playing on the big screen.
· The Green Screen Activity Marquee: Take a little piece of the Skylands world home, with a souvenir photograph taken within the magical Skylands world.
· Whirlwind?s Tornado Tunnel: The game's element of 'Air' will be brought to life inside the dome-like tunnel. In teams of five, children will have the challenge of plucking a special prize ticket from the thousands of tickets blowing around inside, within a ten minute slot.
Click here for more information about the events.

The events will be filmed and photographed for promotion for other events. If you attend and are filmed/photographed, you'll be asked to sign release forms. The films and photos will feature on the Skylanders website and possibly elsewhere. Parking is available at both Liverpool and London venues but the cost of this isn't covered as part of the event and you'll need to bring your own refreshments if you plan to stay for the whole day.

Attendance is by invitation only - if you'd like to attend please sign up here and we'll be in touch with full details if you're selected.

If you're selected to go, you'll be asked to add your feedback from the day to a thread on Mumsnet - everyone who does so will be entered into a prize draw to win a Wii console.

Thanks and good luck

Fimbo - nothing wrong with a bit of enthusiastic singing on a Sunday morning!! Nice to meet you and your family - did DD get something fab in Forever 21? We didn't get to go in there as we were starving and headed straight for food when we left the Nick event then a quick look in the Lego shop then home for the party.

I really appreciated the redintion of Happy Birthday for DS2, although he buried his head in my shoulder, he chatted about it all the way home grin

Hi, NewGirlHelenMumsnet, am I right in thinking that the feedback thread hasn't started yet? Hope I haven't missed something!

gazzalw Fri 23-Sep-11 08:24:10

Thanks Ann, you have got a lot of work on then :-(

gazzalw Fri 23-Sep-11 14:34:11

Survey completed and can we just say a big thank you for a lovely day out - just what DS needed to relax after 11+!

feedback on the game: ds 8 and dd 12 enjoyed it the most; dd likes games that are not too arduous but easy to follow and enjoy. the littler ones played it with me but just liked randomly firing water cannons and crashing through gates. my problem (i have agreed to buy it) will be who plays as who ; they will have to take it in turns to be Gill Grunt as two of them like this character best. I will also need to frisk the 3 yr old when they have been playing as he made several attempts to wander off with the Spiro playing piece at the event grin.

i thought the game was user friendly and engaging - the older two played nicely together.

What happened to the prize draw as this thread seems to have wrapped up a while ago?

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 12-Oct-11 12:12:00

gazzalw - sorry - am just sorting out the data for the feedback - will be this week! I'll post the winners name on here

gazzalw Wed 12-Oct-11 16:34:52

Thanks Ann - just keeping fingers crossed....

northernmonkey Wed 12-Oct-11 17:07:25

Ds is counting down the days until this game is out!! He keeps asking what the date is...tis getting very annoying now angry

At least that says a lot for the game though, all 3 of them loved it so much
