I visited off peak so the queues were non existent. The staff all great and very enthusiastic and helpful. Kate at the Scorpion really stood out and was very kind to my excited daughter! The lady running the Scorpion from the booth was great and hilarious too (favourite ride). We had been sad when the bubble works closed, end of an era. However the Gruffalo ride is superb, so much effort has gone into it and credit to the firm for creating such a tasteful and educational ride. My daughter chose a gruffalo hoodie from the shop afterwards which was on the pricey side at £18 but hopefully good quality. We didn't eat in the restaurants as they were expensive and I couldn't see any vegetarian options. I feel quite sorry for the lions and tigers as their enclosures seem small, it would be great if they could be rehoused in larger plots. There's a new carousel which looks fantastic but it hasn't opened yet. No shows available, just screenings of the Gruffalo which is pointless we could watch at home and a meet and greet. A Gruffalo show would be excellent. I wouldn't fancy coming on a busy day and the queue passes that cost £££ are a really greedy and distasteful option, I'll only come off peak. Collapse
A lot to see and do

Meal deals are good value for money we all had a very good day out. The only downfall was being doubled charged for a photo of my kids. But we can't fault the park as really good value for the money

Overall experience of the theme park was good Some of the younger staff could do with training on were the rides are as they did not have a clue the older ones did!! The wait to the guest help and information was absolute joke if I wanted to wait for 2 hours plus I would go to my local supermarket and not a theme park The place was a bit shabby considering I went when they have just reopened up after the winter closure I mean surely they could of painted the kids cars!!! The rides though were overall very good but as usual very busy Food was generally over priced but all theme parks are.. Collapse

We took the family last weekend for our Son's birthday and for the second day of the season the toilets were in disgusting condition, there wasn't enough staff on any of the rides, the queue times displayed were inaccurate - 40 minutes displayed actually over 2 hours! As a result we only had time to go on some of the rides. And to cap it all the staff were extremely rude to us when leaving the park! Collapse
Great for my 8 year old but not for my 2 year old. +

Chessington World of Adventures is a fun day out with theme park rides, small sea life centre and small zoo area. Although, it was good for my son aged 8 as he could go on most rides I found it a right nightmare with my 2 year old and I did think there were going to be more for him. However, they did have a small soft play area (he was too small to go in large area as they measure them on everything!) and we went on a good little boat ride. Queues - it didn't seem to be very busy, but the queues were a nightmare 30 - 90 mins and queue jump all day was £70 or £60 for each ride (they don't do it for Gruffalo). What annoys me is you have to leave your buggy right at the start of joining the queue on every ride so trying to keep a toddler in a queue for 30 mins was hard work. We were looking forward to go on the Zufari and waited over 30 mins to be told he had to be 1m minimum. I went back to the start as I didn't see a sign and they just put a black height measure chart in between the entrances with no sign on it saying minimum of 1m and the man took a photo and still didn't say - he is too small! Good - Gruffalo film was on 3 times during the day with meet and greet which was good for me because I ended up waiting for about three hours for my son and partner to go on their rides to find out they had only managed to get on 4 rides! Hate to see what it is like in summer :( Parking - £3. Food - ate near the gruffalo. £24 for 3 burgers, chips and drink (1 being a childs meal) and could not believe how disgusting it was. There was no taste and it had a strange texture that did make me feel sick so we threw it all away :( so look about before eating there! There were no sign posts really so I walked about a lot trying to find things with difficulty. The Chessington Zoo was labelled that on the sign but wasn't labelled that to go into the zoo, so keep an eye out! There are penguins and Sea Lion also there. I did like the sea life centre small - but good. We paid for next day tickets as £28. There is a hotel on site which is near the sea life centre. I personally wouldn't go back - but that could be 1) I had a toddler with me - so I don't advise that as under 1m that cant go on a lot, baby changing was a nightmare and the parks were aimed at older kids. 2) I think I have lost my buzz for the rides! But my partner and my 8 year old son loved it but were not happy about spending so much money and between 12 - 5pm only managed to go on 4 rides. I think if you live locally you may get discount.. you would have to research this. Collapse
