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.

It is with great sadness that one of the few lows, if not the lowest point of our trip came while visiting Chessington World of Adventure. A day out which was meant to be full of laughter and joy... more »
Went as a family of 9, age ranging from 5 to 45. We all had fabulous Christmas fun. Going on rides, making cookies, meeting Father Christmas. We all had a wonderful time and would definitely go back x more »
Kids will absolutely love it here ! There is something for every age group. While there are enough thrilling rides to keep older kids and grown ups busy there is also plenty for the little ones to do. Besides all the rides , usual fair ground game stalls and interactive shows there's the added bonus of animal attractions. My kids loved seeing the Lions and tigers up close. You can even watch them being fed at particular times. There's Gorillas, penguins and monkeys too. They also run seasonal themed events from time to time. Check their website for upcoming events. You could stay at one of the themed resorts for a bespoke experience or there's a cheaper option of a premier Inn just a five minute walk away. Oh and there is go Ape and sea life too. You certainly won't be bored given the number of options available to suit every taste. There are plenty of restaurants providing decent food. Although I did find the veg options quite limited.
Absolutely loved the overnight stay we had in the themed rooms with our daughter, son in law and grandchildren. Enjoyed all the attractions we visited and were given a return pass as the weather was bad and we were unable to use many of the attractions. The rooms were well presented and clean the staff were very helpful and quite apart from what we did in the adventure park our grandchildren loved swapping/collecting the theme park badges during our stay. We definitely will revisit.
