We went with a 12 year old and 7 year old for 2 days. The first day was great, we never waited more than 20 minutes to get on ant of the rides. The second day was a little busier but again the longest ride queue was about 40 minutes. A couple of negatives were that some of the rides were being run inefficiently. We noticed whole in the queue for the pirate ship that it would often be run without being filled, often with whole rows empty. I would also recommend if you are going to get the refillable juice bottles you check first to make sure all the refill points were open. We found out today after paying £16 for 2 bottles that we would only be able to get these filled if we queued in the food queues. Some of these queues took longer than the rides. As a result we ended up paying £16 for 3 bottles of juice and 2 bottles of water. Not good. The food was also quite expensive £3 for a small portion of chips. All in all not too bad, but it could have been better. Collapse

I went to Chessinton last week with my Daughter and Grandaughters, we found the park only part open, the ride where the chairs go around and up and down very fast also sprays everyone with a lot of water, this was not advertised so we got soaked and then had to stay wet and cold all day, I had to buy dry T shirts for my Granddaughters. Senior citizens or those with limited walking abilities should be allowed to go through the same gate as single travellers or join their family at the front after the family have queued, some of the queues are very long. What made me actually write this was the disappointing state of the seal enclosure, the water was disgusting, I don't think its ever been changed in all the years iv been going, it put a damper on the day.

Greedy Managment, very poor customer service

Visited the park (fair ground) and was disapointed to find so many stalls offering what amounted to fair ground 'have a go' stalls at extortionate prices... the kids would not stop hounding us for soft toys etc, food is VERY expensive and although the park rides are good there is a sense of greedyness about the place.... everything is geared up to rince as much money out of you as possible even down to having to pay £3 on exit just to park your car... (in addition to the £190 for two adults + 2 children ticket price!!) and on the subject of parking, the barrier broke and we were held 'captive' in the carpark whilst the staff manually collect the funds to exit, the delay was due to the managment refusing to raise the barrier...pure greed. I wrote a letter of complaint and got completley fobbed off with a lame offer of a £3 refund for being held captive for 40 mins..... I will never go again Collapse

Visited for the day on the 24th. Read plenty of bad reviews so was a little worried but no issues. The car parking was fine, we parked on gravel in the zebra car park. We used Kellogg’s adult free with one paying, we would never pay full price for this. However with these vouchers it is a good day out. There were a few school trips but no problem as we planned round them. Straight onto all of the big rides, all queues were max 20 mins, which by the time you’ve walked round the queue it was straight onto all rides. Tiger enclosure is nice however i think it is too loud for the tigers with all the screaming and ride music. A few rides are dated and look a little tired, but vampire is still a great ride. They turned the speed up the second time we went on. All in all a good day out, you can look at the animals after eating, queues were fine and we had no issues with our journey. Collapse

Visited on Sunday, and though the park was generally busy we got on all the rides my son wanted to, the longest we queued was 40 minutes which was for dragons fury and 30 minutes for tiger rock and vampire which wasn't bad in my opinion. This is not our first visit and this time we made a conscious decision to try and spend more time in the animal sections, we did this and it mixed our day up really well. The park has definitely evolved into at least a 2 day attraction if you want to see it all and get on all or most of the rides. The all you can eat pizza/ pasta buffet was not cheap but represented good value for money, particularly in a theme park, but be prepared- don't head there expecting a nice quiet lunch! I would love to see some investment in the trail of kings area as there were some empty enclosures and compared to the new tiger rock enclosure seemed a bit dated and small. Getting out of the car park at the end the day can add a good hour to your day, we always take a cold picnic and leave in the car and just sit back and watch everyone get stressed out, pushing in to try and gain a couple of car lengths!
