The House of Magic 4D

The House of Magic 4D chronicles the adventures of an abandoned young ginger cat named Thunder. Seeking protection from a furious dog and an approaching storm, our hero stumbles into the strangest house imaginable: a run-down Victorian-style mansion owned by an old magician and populated with a dazzling array of automatons, gizmos and performing animals. After avoiding a series of magician's traps and tricks in the attic, he meets Jack the Rabbit and Maggie the Mouse, who immediately feel themselves threatened by the stray cat. Thunder has no choice left... and find himself on the street again. Alone and frightened, he will be rescued in an unexpected twist! 

Frosty's Snow Time!

Frosty the Snowman makes his own special appearance over at Show Street for a festive sing-along at Snow Time with Frosty each day!
