Strap yourselves in, I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! fans: the show is getting its own theme park!
The nation’s favourite jungle-based reality TV show (there’s actually a surprising amount of them) is set to become a thrilling new theme park from ITV, with different rides based on Base Camp, Croc Creek and Snake Rock opening next summer.
Described as ‘a multi-sensory adrenaline adventure’, I’m a Celebrity… Jungle Challenge will allow visitors to get a taste of life in the camps without coming into contract with any live animals or insects – phew!
Situated in sunny Salford (they call it the Australia of the UK), the theme park experience will be a 90-minute ‘action package challenge’ featuring zip wires, parachute drops, and climbing walls, with visitors battling to collect the famous yellow stars to be named king or queen of the jungle.
Sounds amazing, right?
Speaking to the BBC, ITV’s director of games, live and merchandising William van Rest said: ‘It’s inspired by the show, and we’re trying to create a jungle as closely as we can.
‘Some of the games within I’m A Celebrity are things like treetop challenges, and one of the team who helps create the games for I’m A Celebrity is helping us with this.’
As if we weren’t excited enough for the new series already!
With Ant and Dec returning to our screens for the series in November, the presenting team have been teasing fans about what’s in store. ‘At @itv having meeting about @imacelebrity.
Finding out what’s in store and this years celebs…’ the pair shared on Instagram, also including emojis with zipped lips and shocked faces. Not fair at all…
