Chessington World of Adventures Resort tips and tricks


Gemma says

"Make sure you download the app"

It's really handy and lets you know how long the queues are. It also has a little map function that can show how to get a ride, like google maps


Kiera says

"Pizza perfect for the family "

Tried the pizza pasta place last weekend was actually lovely! Pizzas were amazing. £41 for 2 adults 4 children all you can eat. Queue was massive but was only waiting 15 mins.


Richard says

"Grab a 'height band' to avoid unnecessary wait times"

Head to guest services and have your kids measured to get a wristband which shows their height and gives you a list of rides that that they can go on without waiting in the queue and being turned away. Big time saver!

What's there to do at Chessington World of Adventures Resort?

Amazing rides, wild animals – it’s a family fave for a reason

Chessington World of Adventures is technically in London, but with lions, tigers, gorillas as residents in the zoo, and stingrays and sharks swimming around at SEA LIFE, you’ll feel a million miles away. And, they’re just a handful of the 1,000 exotic species you’ll met here.

Get your Chessington World of Adventures tickets here to have a fun filled family day out.

Still not wild enough for you? Make a splash on Tiger Rock (a log flume ride amongst real tigers), fly like a bat on Vampire or slither like a snake on Kobra. Help release the cursed crocodile on the jaw-dropping Croc Drop, then soar through the air on Dragon’s Fury.

That’s not all you can get stuck into. Witch and her cat need help finding her lost belongings in Room on the Broom – A Magical Journey, and all your favourite characters from The Gruffalo are waiting to meet you.

Sounds like hungry work to us – luckily The Vampire Burger Kitchen and Smokehouse BBQ Bar is the perfect spot to refuel.
