Chessington World of Adventures

Wednesday, 8 April 2015

On Bank Holiday Monday, my boyfriend Shane, my sister and her boyfriend and my friend decided to go to Chessington World of Adventures. We booked the tickets the Saturday before so it was really a spur of the moment trip. I was looking online at Chessington and thought it would be a lovely place to spend Bank Holiday as it had both a Zoo and Theme park.

We left the house extremely early, 7am to be exact, as it was a two and a half hour drive from where I lived. We arrived at the park at around 9:40 and headed straight to the park. The park is set out so lovely, each area has a different name such as 'Wild East Asia' and 'Transylvania' and each of these areas have a mixture of both rides and animals. The first ride we headed for was 'Dragon Falls', this was a log flume and was amazing, water rides are always my favourite. The next ride we headed to was 'Kobra', the queue for this was huge and we spent two hours waiting to go on it which was a bit of a nightmare. However, when the ride started we completely forgot how long we had been queueing for and thoroughly enjoyed it. After we had been on these rides, we decided to wander around the Zoo, the first place we went was 'Trail of the Kings', here we seen gorillas, lions, tigers, lynx and many other animals. The tigers were definitely my favourite as they were so beautiful. After this, we wandered over to Sea Lion Bay, we had missed the show but the sea lions were still playing around in the water which was so cute. We also saw otters and reindeers. After this, we decided to head over to Penguin Bay, I love penguins, I wanted to take one home with me, haha. We then went to Sealife, where we saw a range of different fish, jellyfish and sharks. We walked through an underwater tunnel where you could see all the different fish and sharks swim above you, this felt so strange.


After this we all realised we were extremely hungry, we headed over to a place called 'Market Square Pizza and Pasta Buffet', it was £10.95 for unlimited pizza, pasta, salad and drinks, amazing right?! The pizza was wonderful and I went slightly overboard and ate so much. After food, we decided to head to 'Zufari: Ride into Africa', this was like an african safari. We were sat in an off road truck which held around thirty people. This truck would then drive through different areas where there were many different animals. We saw rhinos, giraffes, zebras and many other animals. I loved this ride as you got to see so many animals up close. The ride also took us through a cave where water was poured over the top of the truck. We then headed over to the 'Rattlesnake' ride, this was a rollercoaster which had sharp turns and a lot of dips, I loved this ride and laughed all the way around it. Finally, before heading home, we headed back over to 'Dragon Falls' for one last go as this was my favourite ride of the day.

I thoroughly enjoyed Chessington, it was such a family friendly place with attractions for all ages. The park was so clean and every member of staff we came across were so friendly and talkative, which made the day a lot better. If you are looking for a fun day out I would recommend Chessington World of Adventures as we all really enjoyed ourselves.
