Chessington World of Adventures Resort is ‘paw-leased’ to announce the new multi-million pound ‘Land of the Tiger’, featuring an innovative enclosure and Europe’s first overhead trails, ready to welcome a family of four endangered Amur Tigers in spring 2018. With the introduction of Europe’s first overhead trails, guests will be able to observe these majestic animals in a whole new way – right above their heads.

Guests will be able to wander underneath the Amur Tigers as they explore Land of the Tiger, make a splash on the exhilarating new Tiger Rock log flume and join in mesmerising tiger experiences with the Carnivore Keepers.

Russell Bowes, Zoo Operations Director at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, said of the upcoming arrival: “This is huge news for us here – we’ve been working tirelessly to make sure our tiger quartet will settle in perfectly to their new home and we can’t wait to welcome Olga, Tsar, Kalinka and Kyra to Chessington. With three trails connecting three habitats, this is the first enclosure of its kind in Europe, giving the foursome – who, like domestic cats, enjoy surveying their surroundings from up high – the opportunity to roam and explore as they would naturally.”

Land of the Tiger launches at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in spring 2018 and will be accompanied by four new tiger-themed rooms in the Chessington Safari Hotel.
