We had a lovely day here. There is something for all ages with some excellent rides for small children and some big rides for teenagers and adults. The zoo is good too and the new tiger enclosure is very impressive. For any fans for Julia Donaldson the Gruffalo ride is lovely and Room on the Broom is good but a bit rushed. Always look out for discount vouchers for Chessington - they do a lot of two for one on cereal packets or you can use Tesco Clubcard points to reduce the cost.

An all round theme park. Good for young and old kids. The smokehouse is the best restaurant in any merlin theme park. Pizza buffet pretty good too. Giraffes / rhinos on zufari, tigers by the log ride, vampire ride is great. Lots to do for everyone. Toddlers included.

Yes, you need about a week to go on all the rides as ghd waiting times were way too long. We had a toddler with us, which meant lots of wriggling around and impatience so we gave up on several rides and didn't attempt the others. The map of the park didn't seem to be accurate at all do we never knew exactly where we were.

Really enjoyed our weekend here. Hotels were great. My little girl loved the gruffalo ride and room on the broom. The zoo parts and sealife centre are great. The queue times weren’t too bad for the little rides, but I noticed the queue times for the bigger rides were ridiculous. We are glad we had two days here and early entry time on the 2nd day, so that we could get on a few more things at a leisurely pace. I don’t think I’d of been happy coming here for one day with my kids if they were older and wanting to go on the thrill rides. The gruffalo groove show was good for the little ones. But the gruffalo was on stage for about 3mins?? Our daughter was disappointed at that and it’s a bit misleading calling it the gruffalo groove show. Another criticism is that she couldn’t get on a lot of rides as she is just under 90cm. I understand this is for safety reasons, however two of the rides are IDENTICAL to two rides at Thomasland, Drayton manor (magic bus and the spinning ship ride) which she has been on there, as there were no height restrictions at that park?? The toad cars need an update too. I think a few more rides for toddlers are needed.
The food we bought from the sandwich shop next to the gruffalo stage was not nice at all. So expensive for very bland wraps and sandwiches, and there wasn’t much choice either. The pub in the middle of the park was nice for drinks, again expensive though.
I would return, but not of a weekend or in school holidays, and when my daughter is able to go on a few more rides.

A very good place for kids and adults. Good combination of a Sea Acqarium, small zoo animals and exciting rides. Good eat out options as well. Simply loved it, kids had a blast.

Myself, my husband and our daughter visited Chessington today as a family and overall had a fab day out.My daughter loved the rides but was disappointed, as were we, to find that some of the ones we would have expected her to be tall enough to ride on she wasn’t able to (such as the log ride). We understood some of the bigger rides being for older children, but were a little confused as to why the log ride and the Monkey Swinger rides were not rideable for her height.We were also disappointed to discover 3 rides not open including Rameses Revenge which surely is a big draw for thrill seekers?Though later on they did open one of the rides and my daughter got to go on, so that was a bonus.Alot of the food places were shut and we had to search around for a while for somewhere that sold hot food.But when we did find somewhere it was good value for money and a nicely laid out restaurant with polite staff and quick service. The Zufari ride was fab especially as we got up close to the giraffes. Feeding the Lorikeets was really nice though we found £2 for a tiny pot of nectar to be rather expensive. The Sea Life Centre was great, a brilliant addition to the park. Overall it was a good day out with just a few disappointments
