World's first Jumanji World to open at Chessington

World's first Jumanji World to open at Chessington

World of Jumanji is coming to Chessington World of Adventures Resort this Spring.

In a world-first, families will be able to immerse themselves in the world of the iconic fantasy film franchise at the Surrey Theme Park and Zoo in south east England.

It will boast the world's only 'Jumanji' rollercoaster, Jumanji-themed land, plus two further rides and much more.

A description reads: "World of Jumanji will see families follow in the footsteps of Dr. Bravestone, through a whole world of adventures to locate the Jaguar’s Eye Jewel, lift the curse and save Jumanji."

The rollercoaster, Mandrill Mayhem, "will sweep up riders in the long arms of a mandrill, as the horde whisks those from just 1.2m tall around the sites of Jumanji, all while dodging the hazards of the jungle. The most fearsome of all the wild animals, the mandrills are unpredictable and will launch at full speed through the treetops, flipping upside down on a hair-raising adventure, spiralling to the summit of the 55ft tall Jaguar Shrine. Glimpse the Jaguar’s Eye Jewel glow before falling and braving the adventure again… backwards."

That's not all, families are invited to "Dodge the fangs of the black mamba on a dizzying, untameable ride in the bazaar, Mamba Strike. Then swerve a herd of stampeding ostriches on a whirlwind ride in the dunes on Ostrich Stampede."

There will also be a maze based on the iconic Jumanji board game, themed food, drink and merchandise.

Those looking to have the ultimate 'Jumanji' experience, will be able to book into the brand new Jumanji-themed bedrooms at the Chessington Safari Hotel.

Scott O’Neil, CEO of Merlin Entertainments, which operates Chessington, commented: “We look forward to Welcome-ing you to the Jungle this spring, as the amazing World of Jumanji opens at Chessington World of Adventures Resort. Families should prepare to be turned upside down… literally, as the first NEW rollercoaster in nearly 20 years at the Resort has a twist, turn and flip that will have you holding on to your seat! This is the Next Level for families wanting to explore the ultimate adventure together.”
