Our first day was not great only got to go on Tiger rock. (No fault of the park, it just took over 5 hours to get there.)
I was disapointed with some of the rides, using a fast pass for very poor rides- shooting scarabs . Having to pay alot for extra activities was disapointing, 1 ball to throw in a basket for 2 or £3 . Taking the mickey out of people with that.

Really enjoyed Halloween here with family. We stayed over at the Azteca hotel in a family room. The room was clean and comfortable. The kids loved the bunk beds and their own TV to play games on. The buffet breakfast was ok we ate other meals in the adventure park. The park itself was great fun plenty of rides to enjoy. Plus animals and sea life centre to keep everyone entertained. After the park had closed we had entertainment in the hotel which the kids really loved. I would recommend this park and would return in the future. The overnight stay was good value and great fun. 2 days in the park gave us plenty of time to explore everything.

Easy to get to by train from central London. It's an ok day if you like roller coasters but not much in the way of dark rides or themed rides. We found it a bit of a mis match with no real theming in the different areas at all. We bought on line tots so we didn't have a park guide or map. When we got there we assumed we would be given one but we weren't so we assumed we could just get one inside but we couldn't fine one. The sign posting was not clear at all so found ourselves going round in circles. Now we knew we were not going to a park like Disney so didn't expect too much however most rides needed updating and refreshing. We thought the gruffalo ride was very sweet. The Tomb blaster ride was very basic. Best of all were the animals there. However we went on the Safari truck ride which really was rather pointless. It ended up going through a kind of cavern which was supposed to be a thrill but nothing actually happened at all. Don't know why that's in there at all. We had lunch in the large barbecue restaurant which was very good indeed. Plenty of ribs and tasty burgers etc. I had some savoury fries which were delicious. I'm not sure I will be going back in a hurry . Ok but nothing to make me want to rush back.

We took our 3 young, (aged 4, 4 and 2), plus one older, (age 14), grandchildren to Chessington at half-term. We arrived during a downpour and there were showers for most of the day. However, this meant there were no crowds and no queues for any attractions all day so we all had a very good time. Better for the younger children but there was enough for teenagers as well. Relatively tame and a bit dated by today’s standards but I would still recommend a visit, especially with younger children. Significantly better than expected.

My only previous visit was 25 years ago

I purchased the tickets for 4 adults & a 7 year old
child & visited Saturday 03/11

I booked on line & all the 'saver' tickets were all
£29.00 & £ 3.00 for parking

We arrived at about 10.30 & parked on the grass
parking area about 5 minuets walk from the gates
& security checks.

The whole day was spent wandering from ride to
ride which were suitable for all as most rides have
a height minimum of 1.20m . The ques were not
unreasonable as the day was not a warm one .

We even got to see tigers that are in the middle of
the park in viewing enclosures between rides

The catering / food was also of a really good quality
& although was not cheap but the real issue was
finding somewhere suitable to sit. The chicken shop
had only limited seating

In short a great place to visit especially for children &
whilst I cannot say it was cheap it was a great day out

However why is there a car parking charge ? Aren't the
tickets enough or are we all meant to walk to Chessington ?

Hello Robin,

Thank you for recommending Chessington World of Adventures Resort to our current and future Trip Advisor Guests. We do charge for our car park in line with all other Merlin Attractions, this charge covers Guests parking at the Resort for the day and also includes a donation to our Chessington Conservation Fund.

Other modes of transport apart from the 71 bus, is Chessington South train station, which is a short 5-10 minute walk from the park which we hope may be of some use during your next visit.

We are delighted you and your family had a wonderful visit and we look forward to seeing you again.

Kind regards,

Michael
