Chessington World of Adventures Resort is not only a theme park and resort--it's also a zoo and sea life center. Originally opened in 1931, the zoo shelters over 1,000 animals, many of which are endangered and no longer found in the wild. A new ZUFARI animal reserve was added in 2013, offering guided off-road safari adventures. The theme park area is divided into Market Square, Mystic East, Mexicana, Pirates Cove, Transylvania, and Forbidden Kingdom. Choose from dozens of attractions, like water rides, roller coasters, drop towers, bumper cars, bird enclosures, and live shows at the site’s musical theater. Check online for opening dates and times, and avoid long lines by booking your tickets well in advance.

Huge amusement park. Lots of different rides and activities. The sea life center is not big, but there are plenty of different sea creatures and star fish touching experience. Great zoo. Impressed with variety of animals, so there's something for everyone to be amazed with. Great for family day out and about. Recommended.
Kids loved the place, they never want to leave. The mixture of zoo and theme park really works. They have rides for almost all age groups. Food courts are good too! We have Merlin Pass which helps with the discounts . You may find the app useful. The Azteca hotel for those choosing to stay is excellent. The only disappointment is that the tigers 🐅 seems to have gone missing from the land of tigers on our last visit. I’m pretty sure they had them before 🤔🧐 adding tiger’s picture from last year to the review.
