Even on a cold day there is plenty today and gives you a great chance to explore the zoo with the distraction of a few rides. Our only downside after 3 separate days of visiting over the week was the scorpion express breaking down. The staf in guess services were amazing and super helpful. We had a very enjoyable time and would recommend for anyone wanting a slow quiet day of interesting things to do and see. Collapse

My letter to Chessington World of Adventures best describes my experience as below. As of yet I have still had no response a week later. In short though I will never buy Merlin passes ever again. Merlin run these parks for greedy money hungry investors not families. We are a low income family but every year my wife and I make huge sacrifices in order to buy the Merlin passes every year so that our two young children can enjoy the parks. Having not yet used our passes this year I took a day off (which is unpaid for me so costs us dearly) to take the children to Chessington world of adventures. It is a long car journey for a 3 and a 5 year old as the M25 often has tailbacks that make the trip up to 2 hours. Today the family were very excited and my two little ones who rarely get to see me due to work commitments could not stop jumping around with happiness. We made all the preparations, checked the Chessington World of adventures website to make sure all was ok, filled the car with fuel and set off. Again it was long trip due to traffic complications and the children were getting more and more desperate for the toilet. I told them 'not long now! We will be there soon'. Finally we arrived and we were all so happy. That was until we pulled in to the car park to be greeted by a grim faced attendant telling us to turn around and leave. At first I just thought this must be some mistake, surely they would have put something on there website or similar if this was the case. Surely I haven't just lost a day's pay, an entire tank of petrol and wasted precious time driving my family here for nothing? It meant so much to my family that the children started crying as soon as they heard what the man was saying. At this point my 3 year old was desperate for the toilet. I asked to speak to a manager as I just could not believe all that was happening, these passes were so expensive for us. The manager arrived and said in no uncertain terms that we were to leave immediately. I asked if my young son could at least use the hotel toilets as he was desperate. The manager refused and said we needed to turn around. What choice did we have. We were given a letter and some £10 off next visit vouchers (as mentioned we have the merlin passes so this is useless). I then turned the car around, feeling like crying myself as I was so dissapointed for the children. We have lost so much today in terms of money, time and precious moments away from work with the children. If there is indeed someone reading this who cares i just wanted you to know how this affects some families. Collapse

I got life spine injury after brakes got broken on a Chessington Dragon Fury rollercoaster. I have 3 discs prolapse, spine nerve damage, headaches,ears pain, arms, shoulders, elbows, wrists, fingers, coxick,legs pain and many more. I lost my job as i am not capable to go back to my previouse duties after 18 months after injury. I lost my health, I lost my job and Im about to loose my family as not many husbands are about to get through all helth and financial problems their wife suffer after not "nice day out". My child still suffer with stress after this accident ride at Chessington. I was with my child on a medium size rollercoaster called Dragon Fury while brakes got broken.We were not informed before taking the ride about brakes issue they had that day 4 times already otherwise we would not go on the ride at all. I would not take the risk to get injure. Unfortunately they opened the rollercoaster as normal and got us on as nothing hapend. We were gooing with enormouse speed that i could not see anything. My head was jumping from side to side back and forward and then we were sudenly stoped by emergency brakes. We stuck up high for 45 minutes without any support and assurance that we are safe. My child cried and paniked that we gonna fell of now. After shouting to staff on the ground they got us down in safty straps. As a pologise they gave us a bottle of water and 5 fast track tickets for another rides that we can enjoy and get injure more. I was in such a stress that I could not speak to the staff. I sat on the ground and didnt feel like talking or walking away or gooing for another rides. The staff left me there on my own with my child without checking and ensuring that Im all right and I m not injured. After all day I traveled by myself home 3 hr. I dont know how I managed to come back in one piece as my hand were shaking for 5 day after accident. Terrible terrible experience. No more Chessington, no more rides, no more hights. So fed up and depressed now. By the way. My lawyer tried to get Chessinggton to cover my medical expenses and they rejected the claim 3 times saying that they have done everything propely. SIC!

We stayed 2 nights Fri-Sun during half term 2 adults, 15, 7, 4 year olds and 2 year old twins(7 in total)we have stayed at the Safari Hotel on many occasions but this time wasn't the best.. We were unable to book the swimming pool at all during our entire stay because it was fully booked, straight after check in we tried to book breakfast for the following morning and all they had was 7am or 10.15am so we booked 10.15 which was annoying because there was hardly any food left, the coffee machine was giving out milky water not coffee plus having breakfast at this time meant it was taking up our time in the park baring in mind park closes at 4pm... We had evening meal in the Safari restaurant food was good but felt choice was limited and the restaurant was freezing cold there was a cold breeze coming in from the door at the back leading to the temple restaurant area so it wasn't a pleasant dinning experience.. Following night we ate in the Temple restaurant, again food was good but very limited choice. We made the most of our stay we had 2 rooms which were nice and comfortable the hotels are nice but we feel the number of guests they have staying there is too many for the facilities like the pool, restaurants, entertainment they are not big enough for the amount of guests wanting to use them, same goes for the lifts we waited 10 minutes to get a lift down we couldn't use the stairs because we had a double buggy and luggage to take down overall we had a good time but not sure we will rush back which is a shame as we have had lots of good short breaks there in the past...
