New Tomb Raider experience to open in London next Spring
Immersive entertainment group, Little Lion Entertainment, has unveiled plans to open a new thrill-seeking experience, partnering with Crystal Dynamics and Square Enix to bring to life the iconic Tomb Raider franchise in London, opening 1 April 2022.
Tomb Raider: The LIVE Experience will take adventure-seekers on a journey as teams of eight people join Lara Croft on her pursuit to recover a powerful artifact that has fallen into the hands of a dangerous enemy. Your mission? To save the world. Escape a sinking ship, explore the jungles of Costa Rica, discover an ancient tomb, work through environmental puzzles and battle a secret order as this new adrenaline fuelled attraction, complete with beautiful scenic worlds, live actors and characters from the Tomb Raider franchise comes to life.
Visitors can get a slice of this action themselves in the 30,000 square foot destination located in the heart of Camden, within the famous Stable Market, one of London’s most-popular tourist spots.
Based on the ever-popular games and movies, Tomb Raider: The Live Experience allows for groups of families and friends to become part of the action and be immersed in the world of Tomb Raider. It’s perfect for those who are looking for action and excitement and will launch visitors on the ride of their lives, joining Lara Croft in a real-life adventure.
Tom Lionetti-Maguire, CEO and founder of Little Lion Entertainment Limited, said: “This experience is a game changer for live experiences! To be working with Paramount and Crystal Dynamics is an honour and even more special given it’s marking the 25th anniversary of the franchise. Not only will people be whisked into a fantasy narrative on this journey, but they will find surprises, adventure and wonderment around every trap—laden corner. ‘Unique’ doesn’t even begin to describe how much this is legendary explorer’s experience is going to take people’s breath away. We make our guests the stars of the action, and what a wild time they are in for here.”
Dallas Dickinson, Tomb Raider executive producer at Crystal Dynamics said: “We are extraordinarily excited to help Little Lion and Paramount realise this live action Tomb Raider experience. Lara is an icon who transcends generations, so we know that fans of all ages will run, jump, and swing at this chance to save the world alongside their hero, Lara Croft.”
LABs/Teddy Saggi said: “I am pleased that Camden Market was selected as the location for this attraction as it is THE destination for unique experiences in North London; from independent retail which can’t be found anywhere else, to convention-breaking food and world class entertainment. I am excited to welcome cultural icon Lara Croft and this immersive Tomb Raider experience to Camden Market and believe it will become one of London’s most sought-after attractions.”
