The attraction in St Philips will see visitors ‘step through the secret portal into the amazing world of Meridia - ‘a multilayered maze of immersive environments, secret passageways, hidden forests, temples, ice caves and mesmerising wonders’.

“Wake The Tiger is an abandoned time capsule of fantastical experiences just waiting to be discovered.

“It will invite you to explore connections with the environment around you as well as challenge you to transform the world we all live in.

Guests will travel through illuminated singing ice, underwater worlds, mechanical chambers and elder forests in search of the secrets of the Lost Meridians. Pic: Alex Allen.
