Yesterday I had the privilege to being one of the first people to step inside 'I'm a Celebrity... Get me out of here!' A maze attraction at Thorpe Park.
Before its even opened to the general public, that happen today, 27th March 2015! I was extremely honoured for starters as I got to try this before the Real Celebrities for its Premiere opening last night.
|The Creative minds, The Engineers behind this project|
From start to finish the project only took 6 months to build, from paper to people running wild inside, thats not bad, hey? Of course the inspiration has come from the Great Television Show... I'm a Celebrity... get me out of here! I love I'm a Celeb, I haven't missed a series yet, so I had high expectations for the day.
I don't want to give the game away but can you imagine, you done a few rides maybe a roller coaster or two, the adrenalin is pumping through your body and you fancy a little break. Well welcome to the JUNGLE. Ant and Dec will greet you with open arms just as they do to all their Celebrities... They said, I'm a Celebrity... We hope you get out of there?
You follow guides as they take you around the maze, there's Holey Moley...
You may find something hiding inside, just hope your lucky stars you get a good prize.
You'll be ducking and diving from room to room, there are 5 zones in total, the best way I can explain it, is its like the Crystal Maze Television show. You feel part of a team, its an experience, a synergy everyone is working with you, you're running around wanting to win but not 100% sure whats coming around the corner or whats under your feet crawling on the floor so make sure to look out.
I'm a celeb just wouldn't be, without a Trial, The Chambers of Horrors will meet you here, get your answers wrong and you might get left behind covered in critters, ugly creepy bugs. Be careful not to get them in your hair and down your back and don't look up you've no-idea what and if more may come down. Just get the answers right and you could winning this Jungle fight.
The final trial will have you in the dark, just keep running, pushing, crawling and sliding around and don't forget to slam the button down to be Crowned King or Queen of the JUNGLE.
Its a well thought out attraction, well executed and very entertaining. Its great to go to a theme park, its even better when there's attractions to suit everyone, not everyone loves the thrill of the daredevil rides and this is well balanced for the folk that like to keep their feet firmly on the ground. I personal really enjoyed I'm a Celebrity... Get me out of here! I can't wait to go back.
I would like to thank Thorpe Park, I had a lovely day. I came home exhausted with a big smile and fantastic goodie bags, that my kids loved.
Look at these... The chocolate ants got eaten in 2 minutes. My boys even tired the ant lollies but after a few licks and sucks they got binned. James told me he could see their eyes.
Disclaimer: I was asked to come along and try the new attraction in return for a honest review.
