SEND Sessions

Our SEND sessions are for anyone who could find a visitor attraction overwhelming when open to the general public, perhaps preferring less people and where any sensory-stimulation is managed, including the lights and sounds. These sessions are also open to family members, friends and carers.

We offer these sessions across 2 slots (10am and 10:15am) on the following dates: 18th April, 16th May, 13th June, 18th July, 5th September, 3rd October, 7th November & 5th December and a full day in the Summer Holidays on 9th August. Ready to book? Click ‘Book Now’ to secure your tickets today.

Our SEND Sessions are an opportunity to experience this immersive walk-through that takes into account people with sensory needs and disabilities.

It is for people who could potentially find a visitor attraction overwhelming when open to the general public. They may prefer less people and where anything sensory stimulating is managed, including the lights and sounds.

These sessions would also be for the families, siblings, friends and carers of those who would prefer a SEND session.

If you or someone you know would like to experience a SEND session at Wake The Tiger, click here.
Please note that the SEND sessions last one hour, however you are welcome to stay in the attraction for as long as you want. A member of staff will inform each group 5 minutes before general bookings start to come through and when the lights/sounds will be reverted to standard levels.
If you would like to highlight anything that would improve the experience on the day, although optional, we welcome you sharing this.

SEND sessions cost the same as our standard tickets. There’s no additional cost to attend one.

Yes there is, and it is called The Guildhall. It can be accessed at the end of the experience with an amazing range of fresh food and drink made on site by our wonderful kitchen team.

For SEND sessions we do also allow food and drink to be brought and consumed in the Café Bar, although where possible try to avoid food and drink in the experience itself.

Yes there is, however please note it does not currently have a hoist. Additionally there are hand dryers in all the toilets, however we understand the noise can be uncomfortable for some, so for the first hour during the SEND session we will switch the hand dryers off and ensure paper towels are available.

We do have a manual wheelchair  and 2 sound-cancelling headphones which can be pre-booked for free. Please contact us if you would like to secure one of these for your visit.

Additionally we have created an accessibility guide which you can read before your visit.

We open Wake The Tiger to the general public one hour after the SEND sessions begin. It can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 3+ hours plus to walk through the experience, and whilst we will do everything we can to maintain these sessions sensitively, there may be a point, particularly in the Café Bar, whereby the experience will become busier.

We love feedback, so whatever it is we can take it. It helps us grow and improve. If you would like to offer any feedback or suggestions before or after then please do contact us. Equally during the session you can also talk to a member of staff.
