Wake the Tiger launches new-for-summer-2023 Re-Creation Station
The latest addition to the world’s-first Amazement Park® embodies its commitment to sustainability…and keeps the kids occupied!
The world’s first Amazement park®, Wake The Tiger, has announced the launch of its Re-Creation Station. A summer holiday crafting activity space which invites visitors to the attraction to bring along their junk and upcycle it into their own works of art.
Known for its mesmerising walk-through art experience, Wake The Tiger is the brainchild of the creative team behind Boomtown Fair. Synonymous with creativity and sustainability, the new for summer 2023 Re-Creation Station is an arts and crafts area within Wake The Tiger’s Guildhall café, where visitors both young and young at heart can come and get their creative juices flowing.
The Re-creation Station will encourage visitors to turn their scraps into sculptures by transforming and recycling materials into artworks that can be taken home or displayed as part of an Installation at Wake The Tiger. Each piece will be inspired by the world of Meridia – a multi-sensory labyrinth of immersive environments, secret passageways, hidden forests, temples and ice caves.
The sustainable initiative further showcases Wake the Tiger’s vision to use the power of creativity to inspire a world that works for all. Sets used in many of its artistic experiences have been recycled from Boomtown Fair along with film sets. Elsewhere, the flowers in the attraction’s Red Room are made of recycled shower heads and the plastic toys showcased in the Submarine Room experience were collected having all been found thrown away as trash on beaches.
Additionally, all products on offer in the Curiosity Shop on-site at the attraction are cruelty-free and ethically-sourced and the Amazement Park® is also on a journey to become B Corp certified. Encouraging guests to find alternative routes of transport, a Voi park is also on-site and cycle racks are plentiful.
Graham MacVoy, Managing Director at Wake The Tiger, said: “The narrative itself is thought-provoking by its very nature – encouraging guests to reflect on their place in the world and change it for the better. As such, we are incredibly excited to unveil the Re-Creation Station, an engaging activity space for the summer holidays. This new addition reflects our commitment to continue constantly pushing boundaries and providing our participants with the chance to explore their creative side.
“Sustainability is a fundamental part of our decision-making process from the materials we use to the ethically-sourced ingredients at The Guildhall Café. With the Re-Creation Station, we can influence change from others who bring their recycled and disused materials for them to breathe new life into.”
Wake The Tiger invites visitors to wander its unique, ever-evolving world of creativity, discovery and play. The ambitious project was launched in July 2022, featuring 27 creative environments featuring artworks, installations, narrative, soundscape, secret passageways and more. More than 180,000 tickets to the event have been sold, turning over £3 million in less than a year, to visitors across more than 60 countries.
