Fully approved and supported by ABBA, ABBAWORLD made its stunning, star-studded, world debut in London on 26 January 2010 to rave reviews from fans and media alike.

Infused with state-of-the-art technology, the highly interactive experience will take visitors on a mind-blowing journey through ABBAWORLDS 25 rooms, bursting with exclusive footage, stage costumes, images and never-before-displayed memorabilia from the personal collections of the worlds most cherished pop icons; Agnetha, Benny, Björn and Frida.

From Waterloo to Mamma Mia!, the ABBA phenomenon will be brought to life at ABBAWORLD with interactive highlights including Perform with ABBA - which allows fans to perform on stage with their idols, as part of a stunning 3D holographic illusion. Tretow MIX Challenge- a chance to mix things up and re-create the ABBA sound, as well as the ABBA Quiz - which tests fans knowledge of all things ABBA. There is also the opportunity to Sing-A-Long and dance with ABBA, plus a chance for fans to see themselves as part of an ABBA video!

Better still, all of these interactive experiences will be recorded on visitors "smart tickets" and available to be viewed and downloaded later from www.abbaworld.com, allowing their experiences to live on and on and on, just like ABBAs music! On entry to ABBAWORLD, guests will also have their photograph taken - this will become an animated image that will follow them through their interactive experiences. It is a stunning new multimedia experience for new and old ABBA fans - great family entertainment.

ABBA created a legendary sound in the 1970s which made the whole world take to the dance floor. For over 35 years, ABBA has maintained international success with songs that remain a fixture on radio playlists today.   This has ensured they remain one of the top three selling artists in the world having sold 375 million records worldwide. They still currently sell over 3 million records a year!
