As far as i'm aware it's simply the music to the opening sequence to I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! however if it's been changed I won't know. As far as i'm aware this is the music utilized outside the attraction :)

despite not watching the show, I did actually go on this today, got to say I was a little lost, its way too format heavy, alot of stuff you would need to know the shows format to really get. I dont mind the little challenges, but it was a little lost on me

Being honest, coming from someone who watches the show - I was lost as well!
This doesn't really have an effect on how confusing this attraction can be...

the staff obviously have to be in character a little bit to keep the "ride" on brand, but for me, all that "celebrity" and "something about gold stars so I could have food" was wasted on me. Also I dont believe there was any bugs, I enjoyed the Shark Reef aquarium thing at Alton Tower, its a shame you are not offered the chance to see bugs and creatures, even if for sensible reasons you dont touch them, im certainly betting some of the school kids I saw in line, would have enjoyed that.

All that said im sure fans of the show, do enjoy it more, and the merchandise they get at the end, would be good for them, simply as merchandise of the show, rather than theme park merchandise.

Oh yeah I agree there, I don't mind this attraction, although I doubt I'll ever be doing it again, or at least for a awhile...

I'm on about the exterior music. It was playing country music, not the I'm a celebrity theme, in the queue.

It looks like the attraction has been refurbished according to this.

If you can’t stand the wait, join us this March and return to the jungle in the newly revamped I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! Maze. Updated for 2016, guests will have to dig through dirty laundry in the Dingo Dollar Challenge and shriek in the Outback Shack as guests experience life as a camp-mate for the first time ever in this one-of-a-kind experience.


The is a very good idea to keep people in this attraction, I look forward to seeing what it's like!

Amusingly, I never actually got to do the maze last year as I'm not willing to queue an hour for what reviews are calling a very mediocre attraction. I'll definitely have to make the effort this year. Hopefully people will be preoccupied with the ghost train and the queues will be shorter.

Good to hear about the refurb, it's great to see improvement occuring at Thorpe even with a huge investment for this year already.

It is ok, but an attraction you could easily miss out.

I wasn't a fan of the attraction last year. The acting was poor, the scripts were cringeworthy, and just lacked any feeling of a game you are supposedly a part of. I think my disappointed is partially down to the way the maze was marketed.
However it's nice to hear they are changing parts to offer a new experience and I'll go in with an open mind this year :)

I was far from impressed by I'm A Celeb last season. I certainly won't be rushing back to experience it although I would give it another go if reviews of the refurbishment are positive.

That said, I don't think I'd queue over 10 minutes for it.

I wasn't impressed either and not worth queuing for, especially given the other rides and attractions available. However, it is good that it's been revamped for this year and perhaps it might be better.
