What’s New for Merlin for 2018

Merlin have some exciting new additions for 2018 including the launch of Land of the Tiger at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in the spring. It will feature an innovative enclosure and Europe’s first overhead big cat trails, all set to welcome a family of four endangered Amur Tigers this spring. As the foursome roam with a cat’s-eye view of the Land, guests will be able to wander underneath the tigers, before making a splash at Tiger Rock – the exhilarating log flume. This will be accompanied by four new tiger-themed rooms in the Chessington Safari Hotel.

Chessington World of Adventures OlgaOf course thrill seekers will have been keeping an eye on the updates about the launch of Alton Towers’ brand new wooden roller coaster experience: codenamed SW8 (Secret Weapon 8). This will be the first wooden roller coaster built in the UK on over 20 years. Launched this spring with a globally unique twist and fantastic theme, SW8 is going to be a must visit attraction of 2018. SW8 will join the line-up of iconic attractions brought to life by the secret weapon programme, including Oblivion the world’s first vertical drop rollercoaster and Nemesis Europe’s first inverted rollercoaster.
