I made an account just to review Chessington as like many other commenters, I found that the negative reviews here do not do it justice and was almost put off from coming. At £50 on the door, but less than £30 booking online, it’s expensive, but considering the amount of rides, animals and shows put on, it’s justifiable. I travelled from Hampshire with my family (inc. three children aged 9, 6 and 2) to chessington on 21/4/19 and found that there was plenty to do for all ages. There were a great mixture of small rides for the younger kids and some bigger rides such as Dragons fury and the vampire for the older ones for those who prefer more of a thrill. Of course the queues were long, but the weather was beautiful and it’s Easter weekend- some of the guests need to take a look at themselves shouting and swearing at some of those poor ride attendants for the wait time, it’s not their fault the queues are that long! My two eldest wanted to go on the log flume as they figured it would cool them off after such a hot day. I did notice that the park was extremely busy, (perhaps a little too overcrowded so maybe the amount of people admitted into the park should be reduced) and it was sweltering. Hats off to everybody working on the park, I couldn’t imagine running around the rides all day, every move being scrutinised by other guests, seeming to do whatever they can to get a free fast track pass. We heard one family in the queue for the vampire talking about how they always moan to the employee by the gate until they give them a free pass! The tiger log flume kept breaking down whilst we were in the queue which was frustrating, but the young girl running the ride, I believe her name was leah, was great at keeping everybody updated and made light of the situation despite several incredibly rude remarks from some visitors whilst she seemed to be doing a million things at once. Some of the names I have heard these staff members being called is disgusting and I was only there for a day, I can’t imagine being there all of the season. I believe managers had to come and assist with getting some of the people off of the ride, but they were useless in comparison, seeming to just stand there letting the poor girl do it all herself but she did it brilliantly. Another boy working on the ride, charlie, seemed to know it inside out, and both him and leah worked efficiently to get it working again. Seeing those two work so incredibly hard in the heat and under the stress the other visitors were giving them warranted this review. I can’t give them enough praise! My one criticism of this park actually has nothing to with the park itself, but with the visitors. The park has announcements made mentioning any height restrictions, along with measuring boards at every entrance, but visitors will still kick and scream at the employees if their child is too small. In the queue for the tiger log flume ride a lady threatened another worker of the ride if she didn’t let her child on, who was very clearly too small. Visitors walk around smoking and climbing fences, swearing and abusing employees, it’s not the park’s fault. Every time we saw a security guard (and there were a lot, which was good to see) they seemed to be dealing with a difficult visitor. Me and my family had a fantastic day at chessington, it was our first time here, usually favouring Paultons or Legoland, and it won’t be our last! Collapse

Me and my partner had an amazing time feeding the capybara! We also done the white rhino experience with holly from vip who was very friendly and just genuinely lovely. Leanne talked to us about the rhinos in great detail and was just amazing with her knowledge and her customer service was *5! Will definitely be doing it again! Collapse

I went to Chessington with my other half and we was very disappointed by the fact that the queues where moving too slow because of a number of annoying things, firstly there was a a shop in the middle of some of the queues of the larger more popular rides, when someone was buying something from one of these shops it would hold up the whole queue and make massive gaps, if they put a small cut out so that people why want to use the shops could be out of the way then everything would move much faster, another thing that made the day slower was the fact that the people who was ment to be telling people when to get onto the ride where too busy talking to the customers that at some points cars and boats where leaving empty! One thing that really bothered me and my partner was the fast track users, I understand that these people have paid more to be able to get on the ride faster but why do they get to just go straight on when there was people queuing for over an hour, they should at least let some of the people who have been queuing for longer in before letting the fast track people in with the same group of people. Because of the hold up with the queues we had only just about got to go on all the main rides not all but the ones we wanted to. I recommend that if you do want to experience the whole of Chessington you take a weekend there as it will give you time to go on everything Collapse

We started off our first day of Chessington feeding giraffes, which was amazing! The only thing i would point out is that in the confirmation email it doesn't tell you where to go for the experience. If you make your way to the Safari Hotel reception there is a meeting point where you collect your tickets and the team will meet you here. Moving on to the rides at Chessington.. Very disappointed. On the first day we only went on 2 rides as the ones we wanted to go on were either over a 2 hour queue or were broken down. Tiger Rock for example kept opening and closing all day and was a nightmare. (Clearly there were technical faults but they kept opening it and it would break down again 30 mins after). We decided to do more of the animal side of things towards the end of the day, like the see life center and the zoo. The next day we bought two £15 fast pass tickets each. (One was for 3 rides and the other for 4 rides). The fast pass wasn't exactly fast pass it was more so a 1/4 of the waiting time, so you still had to queue. We used fast pass for Tiger Rock as we wanted to go on it in the morning in case it broke down again! We queued up for about 30mins for Tiger Rock and as we were just about to get on the ride broke down again. We were issued with a fast pass ticket to replace the one we used. We then went in other rides and all day we noticed that whilst using the app to look at ride times that rides were being closed and then reopened and then closed again and reopened which doesn't make any sense and makes you think how safe they really are if they keep getting closed. We eventually got on Tiger Rock at the end of the day as we could see the ride going round although was coming up as closed on the app. Overall i wouldn't come back here again and if i did the only reason would be for the Giraffe Feeding.
