As reported on SouthParks News
, Chessington have submitted plans for a refresh of the Mystic East area, including a re-theme of Dragon Falls.
If the plans get the go ahead, we'll be seeing 3 new interconnected tiger enclosures, as well as new landscaping and theming in the form of a tiger's head on the final drop of Dragon Falls which guests will pass through on the ride. The tiger tunnels which connect the enclosures will also potentially see the tigers walk over guests heads as they walk from one enclosure to the other.
This is very exciting news, and personally I'm so pleased that the tigers will be getting a much larger enclosure as their current home, in my opinion, is far too small. I also love the idea that one of the tiger tunnels passes over the drop for the flume meaning potentially a tiger could sit and watch you as the ride drops!
