Advantages Great for families, so much to see and do
Disadvantages Not many bigger rides, quite expensive if you pay full price
We visit Chessington several times a year because we have merlin annual passes and it is the closest theme park to where we live.*Where is it?*
*Arriving at the park*
When you get to the park you will be told where to park. We have only been able to park in the concrete car park once and the other times we have had to park in the overflow car parks which are just grass fields.
Once at the park there are ticket booths to buy your tickets. Queues here are usually quite short and you will be served within 5 minutes. If you have pre-booked tickets or have annual passes you go straight on through the gates where you will have the option to get a map of the park. I would recommend getting a map as otherwise you are bound to miss things!*The Lands*
FORBIDDEN KINGDOM: This is home to Tomb Blaster and Rameses Revenge. Tomb Blaster is a laser shooting game which the whole family can join in, there is no height restriction but anyone smaller than 1.1m must be accompanied by an adult. Rameses Revenge is similar to Ripsaw at Alton Towers, everyone sits in a row and you are swung upside down and water is squirted at you. You must be 1.4m to ride Rameses Revenge.LAND OF THE DRAGONS: This is home to another one of the parks larger rides - Dragons Fury. This is a rollercoaster which spins you round as you are going round the track making you very dizzy by the time you get off! If you have been to Alton Towers, it is similar to Sonic Spinball. To ride this you must be 1.2m but it is worth noting that even some adults hate this ride! Also in this section there are a number of things for younger children to do including Dragons Playhouse (soft play), Dragons Tale Theatre (shows) and Canopy Capers (walkways through the sky).
MARKET SQUARE: This is home to the main shops in the park and also a few food outlets. Here you can go on the Safari Skyway which is a skyride around the park. This ride is really good as it allows you to see a number of the zoo animals from a birds eye view. When we went on this we had a great view of the lions and tigers which both the kids and adults loved. There is no height restriction for this but anyone under 1.1m must be accompanied by an adult. Market Square is also home to Hocus Pocus Hall, a magical 3D experience for younger families only.MEXICANA: This is home to two of the parks rollercoasters, Rattlesnake and the Runaway Mine Train. Rattlesnake is a ride for older children and adults only as there is a height restriction of 1.
