I Wanted to treat my 3 young Daughters to a day out at a theme park, while their profoundly Disabled Blind Big brother was at Respite Care, so booked tickets in advance to Chessington, which although the closest park to us, is still a two hour drive for us. Shortly after our arrival, it started to rain :( and didn’t stop for the entire visit, some Six hours..!! Having come so far, we decided to stay and try to make the best of it... My eldest daughter has Autism, and all 3 have ADHD, so waiting in queues is hard at the best of times, but they were doing their best to contain the urge to move about. I had wisely packed top coats ( just in case), but we were soon soaked to the skin, and some of the waiting areas are difficult to negotiate with steep steps and narrow areas... Despite doing her best my daughter bumped into a lady in the line, who proceeded to turn round and shout at us about how she had a “bad Back” and how my daughter kept banging her...! I proceeded to immediately apologise and explain it was an accident, but then she rudely complained to the man in front of her and insisted on moving up the line away from us..!! Her bad temper really upset my Autistic daughter and myself, as it was uncalled for, and frankly we were waiting for a ride that clearly stated you should not ride anyway if you have any back conditions...???!!!! I comforted myself( and Sophie) with the fact that we would probably never have to see her again, and would be able to return using the “Rainy Day guarantee” as we had booked in advance on the website, to enjoy a less wet day later in the summer... My daughters were so disappointed that all the large rides were closed due to the constant rain, so they were unable to ride any of them. But again I assured them we would be able to return and would ride them on our next visit. This one wet day, cost me more than £160, which as a full time carer with only minimal income, is a huge amount of money, considering all the headliner rides were closed. It was not an option for me to pay for annual passes, as my son almost never has Respite over a Weekend, and only the premium pass allows visits during the summer holidays... You can imagine then, my disbelief, when I went to check Chessingtons “Official” wet day list, only to find that our visit day ( May 12th 2018) is NOT listed as being wet...??? It constantly rained and showered for the entire day, well into the night in fact, as it caused havoc on our journey home causing an accident on the M25 which delayed us by several hours. I personally was relying on that return visit so my daughters could ride a few Roller Coasters, but unless they are slow at updating the list then we won’t be able to do so, as I don’t have the funds to chance another possible rained out day. All in all quite disappointed with what appears to be an empty “rainy day” promise ☹️ Collapse
Great day out

We have seen some negative reviews on here and could not disagree more with them. The park was spotless, the rides looked fresh and the staff were friendly and polite.... This was our 3 year olds first excursion to a theme park and it was great. We also had an 8 month old baby... there's plenty of things for him to do as well.. the queues were short.... special mention to the Gruffalo and The new tiger rock... We will definitely be back!

Visited for my sons 6th birthday. Its a great park and although small in size compared to other theme parks it crams in alot of rides and attractions. There are lots of food outlets so you wont go hungry, although not cheap like other parks.The zoo is a great addition to the park, it offers more than other theme parks especially the sea life centre. Be aware there are alot of rides that kids need to be over 1.2 meters. Collapse

Had a lovely day out with family and a one year old in toe. Good mix of attractions and great to spend some time in the zoo areas. Queues were very short when we visited and weather was great which helped. Food and drink was ok but can be very expensive. Some areas of the park can be a little rough around the edges and could be tidied up, and some of the older rides can be a little shaky and uncomfortable too. Collapse
The company just want your money!

I went to chessington with my family for a treat. At lunch we decided to go to the vampire kitchen. The queues were long and they were clearly short staffed. I ordered a vegetarian meal and when I eventually got it I bit into it and they had given me chicken! I spent the afternoon being sick and obviously the day was ruined. Contacted customer services and they really don’t care that your trip was ruined due to the staff. I also reported the incident at the park with very little assistance there. The park is expensive to get into so I was very upset with what happened and with the customer service afterwards. Once they have your money you are just a number to them. They do not care about the experience you have. Very upset! Collapse
