About Chessington World of Adventure

Chessington wasn’t always a ‘World of Adventures’. Back in 1931 it opened as Chessington Zoo, designed as a showcase for a private collector’s animals. In the 80s its owners decided to move with the times, and began constructing a family-friendly amusement park to accompany the animal enclosures. From just five attractions in 1987, the park has grown to ten themed areas and 40 rides and attractions, including long-established favourites like the swinging Vampire coaster and the spinning Ramses Revenge, which gives riders a thorough soaking while they’re suspended in mid-air.

Aimed at family fun rather than intense thrill-seeking, Chessington has plenty of rides to offer kids, from traditional carousels to movie tie-ins like Treetop Hoppers, featuring the penguins of smash-hit animation series Madagascar. And the attractions didn’t replace the animals – Chessington Zoo still exists, with 1,000 critters in a range of habitats. See tiny leafcutter ants at work, enjoy the antics of Humboldt penguins in a walk-through enclosure, or watch huge lions, tigers and gorillas. There’s even a huge aquarium at the SEA LIFE centre.

Food options include everything you need to keep kids happy on a big day out, from sweet treats to huge pizzas and traditional fish and chips.
