Have you ever wondered what happened to your childhood fairytale heroes after you left their lands? WICKEDLAND brings you face-to-face with them: all grown up, distorted and oh-so-very twisted. How have YOU changed?

WICKEDLAND brings your favorite childhood fairytale heroes and their archetypal stories back to life. But something has changed – this world isn’t nearly as innocent as it was when you were younger, because you are it.

If you want to dig deeper through the world of twisted fairytales, you are welcome to sit with a book in our cozy lounge. Or climb up the castle towers that adorn the entrance to our camp. You can be transformed to the damsel in distress of your choice. Will you be Snow White today, or maybe Rapuntzel?
But be warned – a transformation lingers behind every page you turn. If you’re not careful, you may leave WICKEDLAND as Gay Donald Duck or Nymphomaniac Snow White.

There are no observers here, come party like the Princess or Dragon that you are!
