The creators of the music festival Boomtown, have announced that they will be launching the world’s first ‘Amazement Park’ in Bristol. Known as Wake The Tiger, the brand new, fantastical experience is expected to arrive in the city this summer.
Described as “an interactive immersive art experience which provides an exciting alternative to the traditional art gallery”, Wake The Tiger is the brainchild of a collection of creatives, encompassing interactive environments and daring new experiences at the site located in St Phillips, Bristol. Visitors will step through the secret portal into the amazing world of Meridia; a multi-layered maze of immersive environments, secret passageways, hidden forests, temples, ice caves and mesmerising wonders.
Wake The Tiger will encourage visitors of all ages to leave no corner unturned, as they discover the stories and secrets of the four great Guilds in Meridia, and how they uncover the answers to their world’s greatest problems.
Graham MacVoy, Founder and Managing Director of Wake The Tiger, explains: “This project is two years in the making and the result of decades of creative input from some of the best technologists, story-tellers and creative minds working across festivals and attractions in the UK. We are starting this new movement in our spiritual home of Bristol and can’t wait to be open this summer.”
The Wake The Tiger team has an impressive track record of creating and delivering incredible experiences, masterminding the sustained growth and success of the internationally-renowned Boomtown Festival, which has grown from 1,500 attendees to 70,000 in 10 years. Over £1.5million of seed investment has already been secured from private investors bringing new jobs to enhance Bristol’s creative sector, with a crowdfunder launching this month to secure an additional £350,000 to launch this new and exciting tourist attraction.
