Well, I have to say, that looks pretty cool! Can't wait to see it all finished! :)

I'm hoping it brings the charm back to the area. When they removed that iconic facia a few years back, the area didn't feel the same and it felt very tired and Dragon Falls felt very much like a standard log flume. Seeing this work being done excites me. I'm sure it will be a great addition, especially after hearing some of the teasers from the TTSP Spring Spectacular event!

Just a few pictures of the new Land of the Tiger. :)

This picture from Chessington Buzz shows the new entrance to the land!

And these pictures by Theme Park Guide show new theming around the land, as well as the Tiger Rock itself!

Looks great. I really hope they demolish / repaint the old rockwork in the foreground. Rather yucky!

That frame is interesting. I wonder what this is for as it looks permanent. I doubt they will get rid of the wall. Hopefully they'll paint it!

I really hope they do do something with that old bit of rockwork. Really doesn't look that good, and does detract from the fresh new look of Tiger Rock somewhat. Even if it's just a quick paint to match the newer colour scheme of the Tiger Rock, that might disguise it enough so that it isn't as easy to notice.

As posted on SouthParks Facebook; The rockwork formation surrounding Tiger Rock’s main drop is almost complete. Who likes the look of the tiger shaped theming?

There’s not much longer to wait until Land of the Tiger opens at Chessington World of Adventures Resort on May 5th!

It looks really nice. It is really good to see them rejuvenate the area!

Just to confirm, it's not 'Almost' complete. Land of the Tiger is complete bar snagging which is on going by the contractors.

Along with the (I think rather nice) theming does anyone know if the ride mechanics are getting a refresh? It felt like it was on its last legs when I rode it before it closed.

I am unsure about the mechanics, but the ride will have additional effects installed.

I mean, it would have made sense to fix anything that needed to be fixed, but this is Merlin at the end of the day... I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
