World’s first Jumanji theme park will open in Britain next year & fans can expect rides and installations that cost £17m
THE world’s first Jumanji theme park will open in the UK next year, giving Brits their very own concrete jungle to explore.
Fans of the hit film franchise can expect a host of enchanting rides and installations at Chessington World of Adventures next spring.
The theme park has teamed up with Sony Pictures Entertainment for the hefty £17million project that is set to wow thrill seekers.
It’s being billed as the single largest investment in the history of Chessington World of Adventures to date.
The ‘World of Jumanji’ promises to offer a “world-first experience” that brings the supernatural board-game movie to life.
Visitors will arrive through an “impressive entrance portal”, that is blanketed by the overgrown jungle, as seen in the iconic 1995 film.
Chessington says it “creates the perfect immersive starting point” – before guests buckle up to take on a host of challenges.
And the iconic Jaguar Shrine will be keeping a close eye on parkgoers from 55ft in the air as it awaits the return of the curse-lifting Jaguar’s Eye jewel.
More details about the rides, attractions and experiences that guests can expect to discover in the ‘World of Jumanji’ are set to be shared by the park over the coming months.
Chessington explained entertainment and industry giants have worked together to create the extraordinary development.

They promise visitors will “deep dive into the adventurous, action-packed stories seen in the box-office-hit Jumanji film” at the park.
Tim Harrison-Jones, Divisional Director at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, said: “What could be more exciting than bringing the global hit Jumanji film franchise to life within the single largest development Chessington has ever seen?
“We know what it takes to create the ultimate adventure for our guests, spread over 128 acres, the resort already delivers surprises around every corner with over 40 wild rides and attractions, a zoo with over 1,000 majestic animals and two themed hotels – plus glamping!”
Jeffrey Godsick, EVP of Global Partnerships and Brand Management and Head of Location Based Entertainment at Sony Pictures Entertainment, echoed his excitement.
He added: “After being entertained by the films for so many years, fans now have the chance to experience Jumanji in a whole new dimension.
“We are thrilled to be going on this exciting adventure with the creative team at Chessington as Jumanji further expands with its very own themed land.”
Robin Williams famously starred in Jumanji alongside Kirsten Dunst in 1995, which raked in a whopping £197million at the box office.
They battled against jungle-based hazards while navigating the supernatural board game.
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was then released 22 years later with Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan taking on roles.
Then in 2019, Jumanji: The Next Level arrived – with Danny DeVito and Danny Glover joining the cast.
