Fun for all ages!
With our insider info, tips and "must-do's"
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
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.
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!
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. For an extra animal fix, the Azteca and Safari resort hotels are a monkey’s playground.
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. And, when it’s (finally) time to chill out, you can snooze with creature characters in safari-themed rooms or get your glamp on under the stars.
The theme park is suitable for all ages, but particularly popular with families with young children. Most rides and attractions are restricted only by height. Smaller kids usually have to be accompanied by adults aged 16 and over.
Queue times tend to be the highest at Dragon’s Fury, Vampire, Croc Drop and KOBRA. To squeeze in all the rides, the zoo and SEA LIFE, you’ll definitely need a full day.
You can pre-hire a buggy online from the official website. Family-friendly facilities include baby changing, free Wi-Fi, lockers, microwaves and baby food, and disabled changing. Parents are offered coded child wristbands on arrival so that kids can be located quickly at all times.
