The World’s First Ever Jumanji Theme Park Is Coming To The UK
Whether you’re team-’90s, Robin Williams-and-Kirsten-Dunst Jumanji; or team-2010s, The-Rock-and-Jack-Black-and-Kevin-Hart Jumanji; a world of excitement is about to open up full of monkeys on motorcycles, elephants walking on cars and much more.
Over at Chessington World Of Adventures, the world’s very first Jumanji theme park is opening, and you could venture into its universe next year! In combination with Sony, the rides – including a jaguar rollercoaster – will land in the Spring!
An eye-watering £17 million has been invested in this first-of-a-kind Jumanji world at Chessington World Of Adventures, making it the park’s biggest investment to date. Let’s hope those rampaging CG elephants are kind and don’t trample over it straight away.
Full details of what we can expect at the theme park are set to be revealed over the coming months, but we do know that there will be a 55-foot replica of the Jaguar Shrine in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle. In this instance, returning the Jaguar’s Eye jewel to it’s rightful place won’t be a life-or-death situation, but the thrill of the rollercoaster is certain to get the adrenaline levels into overdrive.
Tickets to Chessington World of Adventures start at £36, and the park also boasts a multitude of rides, a zoo, aquarium and hotels. There is no exact date for the start of World Of Jumanj, but it is expected to kick off in Spring 2023. More information on the world’s first Jumanji theme park will be posted this year on their website.
