Chessington has officially announced that TIger Rock and Land of the Tiger will join the park this season. The new 2018 themed land is a reimaging of the former Mystic East area. Featuring a rethemed Dragon Falls log flume ride, which becomes Tiger Rock. As well as the addition of three sensational new Tiger habitats, new themed features and changes to the rest of the land.
Of course, the new land is to be painstakingly detailed and is to be built around it’s four new inhabitants. Coming directly from Kolmarden Wildlife Park in Sweden are four beautiful Amur Tigers. With this in mind, Chessington is building not one, but three new habitats. Connected by a series of bridges, the enclosures are the first of their kind in Europe. Featuring unique overhead trails, the new habitats offer guests a sensational way to view these majestic animals.
Sadly, to make way for this new development and for the installation of the new habitats, something has to go. Peeking Heights, the Ferris wheel from manufacturer Fabbri is to be removed as part of the plans. The ride, which opened for the 2005 season was originally known as Eclipse and operated at Thorpe Park. The ride moved to Chessington as part of a ride swap deal, with Samurai moving to Thorpe Park.
The rejuvenated area is set to open later this year and Chessington Buzz look forward to seeing it! Be sure to keep an eye on our social channels for all the latest news and updates,
