Thorpe Park has launched the world’s first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze inspired by the hit TV show. Here is our exclusive interview with Andrew Walker, the Operations Director at Thorpe Park, about the brand new family attraction for 2015.
Six months in planning, the new attraction has been fitted with the latest technology and special effects to breathe animatronic life into the jungle. Features include multi-sensory ‘leg ticklers’ that simulate the feeling of being covered head-to-toe in bothersome bugs, a vibrating bridge walkway which will leave you feeling unsteady on your feet and moving trees and walls.
Thorpe Park has applied for planning permission to build a 2438sqm building to house a unique indoor fully themed atttraction ready to open for Summer 2016.
The new attraction will be located on the site of the Arena and Chief Ranger’s Carousel, between Nemesis Inferno and X.
It is rumoured that the attraction will be based on a major intellectual property such as the BBC's Doctor Who, whom Merlin Entertainments, the owners of Thorpe Park, have recently worked with on Cbeebies Land at Alton Towers.
