Wake The Tiger - described as the world's first 'amazement park' - has opened its doors to the public in Bristol, UK.

Blurring the lines between an experiential art gallery, interactive theme park and detailed film set – and offering visitors a "surreal and beautiful twist" – Wake The Tiger has been designed to offer an immersive adventure for all ages.

The multi-layered labyrinth of "creative environments and fantastical wonders" is the brainchild of the artistic team behind the annual music festival, Boomtown Fair.

Wake The Tiger will invite attendees to step through a portal into the parallel world of Meridia, where they will enter an old abandoned factory once inhabited by a mysterious community of adventurers staging wild experiments.

The otherworldly concept has been dreamt up with the aim of inspiring ways to reconnect people with their environment and community.

With 27 distinct spaces within the experience, the art installations explore themes of connection and innovation, inspiration and discovery.

Guests will travel through illuminated singing ice, underwater worlds, mechanical chambers and elder forests in search of the secrets of the Lost Meridians.

Lak Mitchell, Creative Director of Wake The Tiger said: “You have to see it to believe it. Wake The Tiger is an abandoned time capsule of fantastical experiences just waiting to be discovered.

"It will invite you to explore connections with the environment around you as well as challenge you to transform the world we all live in. This is a vision that plays into and expands on everything we have spent our lives building, taking raw underground art and fusing it with the latest technology. We can’t wait for guests to explore what we have created in the heart of Bristol.”
