The Land of the Tiger opened in 2018 to redevelop the former Mystic East. Mystic East was a heavily themed area with Japanese and Asian elements that opened in 1987. Its focal point was the Dragon River / Dragon Falls.

The Land was given a deep refresh in 2017 and a new theme. It was reborn as the Land of the Tiger.

Developed in conjunction with Zoo experts. Land of the Tiger celebrates one of the world’s most majestic and most endangered animals. The Amur tigers are truly at the heart of the innovative enclosure, home to four Amur tigers, the world’s largest tiger species. Today it is one of the most popular lands, especially in hot weather.

In a European first, the specially designed enclosures introduce overhead trails. Allowing the tigers’ freedom to roam and guests to observe the species in a whole new way. Right above their heads. Other areas allow guests not just to observe but also to ‘interact’ with the awe-inspiring animals in various experiences and together make amazing discoveries about the Amur Tiger.

The Amur originate from the far east and were the perfect evolution of many of the original themes. The focal point of the Land is the massive Tiger themed rock which can be seen prominently from the Land’s entrance. The main ride’s drop flows through this on its way back to its station.

The Land connects to Wild Asia on one side and the Land of the Dragons on the other. A bridge connects both sides of the Land with the river running through.

The Land of the tiger is home to four Amur tigers who came from Kolmarden. A Zoo and Theme Park in Sweden.
