New entertainment attraction 'I'm a Celebrity...Jungle Challenge' to open at Quayside, MediaCityUK this month

A brand-new entertainment adventure at Quayside, MediaCityUK (formally known as the Lowry Shopping Centre), part of Peel L&P, is set to open this summer. 

The TV favourite I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out Of Here will bring an ultimate jungle encounter to Manchester with the ‘I’m a Celebrity…Jungle Challenge which opens on Friday 30th July. 

The multi-million indoor entertainment attraction will allow visitors to navigate a variety of fun physical challenges, also known as ‘trials’, inspired by the hit ITV show.  

Featuring Main Camp, the Throne and Winners Bridge, the action-packed experience will put campmates' nerve and agility to the test as they race against the clock in a bid to collect stars and be crowned King or Queen of the jungle.

The exciting attraction will also include an 8.1m vertical rock climb, a suspended Treetop Trail, scramble nets and balance beams. 

I’m a Celebrity… Jungle Challenge will also feature Europe’s first ever ceiling-mounted Spyrider; a high-speed track which will whiz above the jungle canopy in just 18 seconds*. 

James Penfold, Controller of Partnerships for ITV Global Entertainment said: “I’m a Celebrity... Jungle Challenge is a one of a kind, multi-sensory adrenalin adventure - bringing together the heart and soul of the hugely celebrated series, and ITV’s expertise in curating fantastic, memorable live brand experiences for guests and families across the world.” 

Appointed operators, Continuum Attractions’ CEO Juliana Delaney comments: "We’re really looking forward to opening the doors on the Jungle Challenge; it will be a totally new and utterly amazing action-packed physical challenge for friends and family to enjoy together this summer.” 

Stephen Wild, Managing Director of MediaCityUK added: The arrival of this incredible attraction will bring a real sense of excitement and fun for all the family to MediaCityUK. ITV is already an important part of our community with the presence of the iconic Coronation Street studios and the ‘I’m a Celebrity... Jungle Challenge’ brings the ITV experience even closer to the public, in a unique immersive way.”
