Land of the Tiger Previews To Press
Sunday 29th April 2018
Land of the Tiger previewed to the press and media yesterday and has gone down really well! The 4 new tigers are beautiful and seem to be taking an interest in the Tiger Rock log flume ride. A few years ago the tunnel halfway through the ride was shortened however in the closed season the tunnel has been rextended and refreshed to its former glory with a few tweaks here and there. Gone is the long boring tunnel! The area feels refreshed after its makeover. Land of the Tigers opens to the public Saturday 5th May 2018.

Land of the Tiger Project Complete?
Sunday 22nd April 2018
Everything seems to be going very well over at Chessington and the new Land of the Tiger area. The construction site office that used to be based near dragons fury has now been removed and theming outside the construction gates has gone up over the past few days. In the form of a new entrance portal and some red flags with a tiger on it. A few days ago, another theme park page reported the ride testing, today two boats could be seen sitting on the ride lift hill.
Theming on the final drop is now looking incredible, last week we could see people painting on the fine details onto the theming and this week it's now visible the amount of time and detail they where painting on it. Even from the Korba queue line and the Tomb Blaster viewing platform which sees the back of the structure, it looks stunning.
Land of the Tiger Build Update
Sunday 15th April 2018
Work on the rethemed area at Chessington has progressed well since our last update a few weeks ago! The Rock face theming on the final drop looks to almost be completed and two of the new Tigers have been seen roaming around the first of the new enclosures. The theming around the area that we can see from the Kobra ride and queue line looks really good and some sections of the new area seem to retain the old Mystic East area theming. The Dragon Tunnel also appears to have received some work over the past few months. With not long left until the area opens we're excited to see what the final product looks like!
Tiger Rock Update
Saturday 10th March 2018
Land of the Tigers and Tiger Rock has progressed nicely since our update at the staff preview last weekend. Today is the Annual Pass Preview for the theme park season and since last week the metal framework for the drop theming has been completed and now cladding and the metal wire mesh for the tiger theming is being added.
The enclosures for the new tigers are nearing completion with the viewing windows installed and tents installed. A look through the access gate next to the Dragons Fury queue line reveals red cladding around the metal structure.
