Wake The Tiger launches new 1,000sq m expansion

Wake the Tiger, the Bristol-based immersive art experience, is set to open its 1,000sq m expansion on Friday 2 February.

Dubbed ‘the world’s first amazement park’ Wake The Tiger was created by the team behind Boomtown music festival. It launched in a former warehouse in Bristol, UK in July 2022, featuring 27 different spaces, including ice chambers, secret passageways, underwater worlds, mechanical chambers and psychedelic forests. Since its launch, it has welcomed almost 300,000 visitors.

Created by more than 100 installation artists, robotic experts, costume-makers, architects, videographers and prop-makers, Wake The Tiger is part of a growing trend for immersive art experiences.

Dubbed OUTERverse, the expansion will feature 15 new spaces, with visitors starting their journey in the Astral Tour Lounge, described as ‘a futuristic airport lounge that radiates a feeling of a “cosmic retrofuture’.

The OUTERverse features a range of installations – created where possible from salvaged and recycled materials – including a segment from an actual plane, a cosmic kitchen and various nostalgic childhood toys.

“We wanted to combine connection, memories and spirituality into a journey that will blow people's minds, where every moment promises breathtaking visuals and awe-inspiring concepts beyond imagination,” said Graham MacVoy, managing director at Wake The Tiger. “Our new ‘Astral Tours’ offer a unique opportunity to go on a trip into the unknown to foster a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of life.
