BURBANK, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Yeti or not, here they come! Temperatures may reach triple digits this summer, but Los Angeles will be the coolest place to be when the Smallfoot Yeti Village opens on August 12.
The movie “Smallfoot,” in theaters across the U.S. and Canada on September 28, will take audiences to the secret snowbound world of the legendary yeti in an animated adventure for the whole family. But starting August 12 and running through September 14, people can have their own personal “Smallfoot” encounter at the Smallfoot Yeti Village in Hollywood. Staged on two levels, this fully immersive, family-friendly experience will transport visitors to two very different worlds—the yeti mountain home above the clouds and the smallfoot, aka human, land below—as they discover the big “myth-understanding” between them.
Guests will enjoy a 40-minute, yeti-sized adventure, featuring a snowball pit and 20-foot spiral slide; recreated film environments, including karaoke at the Yak Shack; plus arts and crafts, games, and other exciting themed activities to celebrate the fun and wonder of this new film. Custom photo moments will ensure everyone goes home with a yeti encounter to share.
The Smallfoot Yeti Village will be at the corner of Hollywood Blvd. and Vine Street in Hollywood. Admission is free, with timed ticketing available at SmallfootYetiVillage.com beginning July 31, or via walk-up line. Hours are as follows:
- Saturdays and Sundays: 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM
- Summer weekdays, prior to Labor Day: Noon to 6:00 PM
- Back-to-School Weekdays, after Labor Day: 3:00 PM to 8:00 PM
