About the movie
Pack your bags for more fun, more laughs and more “wimpy” mischief! In diary of a wimpy kid: the long haul! The heffley family road trip to meemaw’s 90th birthday party takes a wild detour thanks to Greg’s newest scheme to attend a video gaming convention.
Based on one of the best-selling book series of all time. This cross-country adventure turns into an experience the heffleys will never forget!
What my correspondents thought of the experience
Having previously seen the movie at the cinema both myself and Fin (aged 9) knew that we would enjoy it. On our first viewing of the movie we attended with my other grandsons who are 12 and 4. Despite a lot of the humour going over our youngest grandsons head he love all the pig scenes. I myself enjoyed it both times, which shows that this movie appeals to different ages.
Our views on the tour:
The layout of the coach resulted in a number of the adults sitting under the screen. Resulting in them missing movie or straining their neck.
I don’t think the tour will be a permanent thing, from what I can gather from the lady who owns and runs the pig farm. She normally takes a selection of the pigs to the Crowne Plaza Hotel (where we had a rather lively lunch). Here she puts on a show and allows the kids to pet and hold the pigs. Unfortunately the visit to the farm itself meant entering the pig enclosure, and what do pigs live in, that’s right mud, and lots of it.
As no one including the Premier girls were expecting this lots of nice shoes and boots got very, very muddy. But despite the footwear issues a lot of fun was had at the pig farm.
The two Premier hosts, especially Jenny, were good fun. We even witnessed Jenny kiss a pig sadly it didn’t turn into a Prince though.
A big thank you to the wonderful team at Premier!
