Prepare to release your inner Lara Croft.
Plans have been unveiled for a new ‘thrill-seeking’ experience in London – Tomb Raider: The Live Experience, which will open on April 1, 2022.
It’s no joke. The multi-million-pound attraction, which is set within Camden’s Stable Market, will invite ‘adventure-seekers’ to accompany Lara Croft ‘on her pursuit to recover a powerful artefact that has fallen into the hands of a dangerous enemy’.

One rendering depicts a giant statue of Lara Croft towering over visitors at the attraction’s entrance. Another drawing shows a bird’s-eye view of each of the rooms in the interactive attraction, with what looks like a tropical jungle, a lava pit, and a snowy Alpine scene featuring in the new experience.
A third, meanwhile, shows a woman ziplining through a forest scene, with a recreation of an ancient tomb in the background.
In teams of eight, visitors will be given missions to ‘escape a sinking ship, explore the jungles of Costa Rica, discover an ancient tomb, work through environmental puzzles and battle a secret order’.

Live actors and characters from the Tomb Raider film and game franchise will ‘come to life’ in the attraction, which promises to be ‘complete with beautiful scenic worlds’.
A statement reads: ‘Your mission? To save the world.
‘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.’

Film production company Little Lion Entertainment has partnered with video game developer Crystal Dynamics and entertainment company Square Enix to launch the attraction, which will span 30,000 square ft (2,787 metres sq).
Tom Lionetti-Maguire, the CEO and founder of Little Lion Entertainment Limited, says: ‘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 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.’
