One of the UK’s leading theme parks, Thorpe Park has today announced a new attraction for 2015, the ‘I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze’.
Thorpe Park has today announced the world’s first I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze inspired by the hit TV show on ITV, fitted with the latest technology and special effects to breathe animatronic life into the jungle.
The maze is planned to open on Friday 27th March 2015 in partnership with ITV Studios, the new Maze will be home to ‘critters’ and jungle trials all wrapped up within the authentic I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! brand.
The new attraction makes you believe you’ve actually entered the I’m A Celebrity jungle, the second you walk in you’re greeted by rainforest temperature mist. You will play the role of the campmates and enter the Maze, once you’re in you’ll be greeted by Ant and Dec who will give you a recorded briefing. The campmates will then have to navigate through tunnels, crawly corridors and dark caves that will make you squawk! Campers should keep their eyes peeled for Bush Tucker Trials where they will unearth the prized gold stars.
Holey Moley is the first Bush Tucker Trial contestants will come up against – the deceptive rock face is home to more than just rolling moss, within dark crevices are openings for contestants to put in their hands to search for gold stars. If they are successful, they will unlock a secret corridor to the heart of the jungle.
Contestants will then enter shower cubicles in the next Trial to take part in a live game show experience, the Chambers of Horror. Don’t Look Up! Above the showers will be tanks loaded with slippery and slimy surprises that could drop at any moment should you answer a question wrong in the pot luck quiz show.
In the final trial, Celebrity Cyclone, camp mates must race against 56mph winds and water jets in search of stars to be crowned King or Queen of the jungle.
Mike Vallis, THORPE PARK Resort Divisional Director, commented: “After thirteen years of watching I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! on the small screen, we’re delighted to offer our guests the chance to brave Bush Tucker Trials inspired by the hit TV show – you don’t have to be a celebrity to grab a slice of the action on our island! And the good news is that we don’t expect any of our guests to chew on a kangaroo’s less palatable parts.”
Claire Heys, Director of Commercial Brand Partnerships at ITV, said: “We’re thrilled to be able to bring the I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here! Maze to the public and give them a chance to share in the fun we have on the set. THORPE PARK Resort is the perfect location to bring the hit series to life and we’re excited to be working with Merlin to launch the new attraction later this year.”
TwitCelebGossip are hoping to visit the launch of the new THORPE PARK maze later in the year, to experience the new attraction for ourselves.
