Chessington World of Adventures Resort is not only a theme park and resort--it's also a zoo and sea life center. Originally opened in 1931, the zoo shelters over 1,000 animals, many of which are endangered and no longer found in the wild.

The theme park area is divided into Market Square, Mystic East, Mexicana, Pirates Cove, Transylvania, and Forbidden Kingdom. Choose from dozens of attractions, like water rides, roller coasters, drop towers, bumper cars, bird enclosures, and live shows at the site’s musical theater.

  • Huge amusement park. Lots of different rides and activities. The sea life center is not big, but there are plenty of different sea creatures and star fish touching experience. Great zoo. Impressed with variety of animals, so there's something for everyone to be amazed with. Great for family day out and about. Recommended.
  • Kids loved the place, they never want to leave. The mixture of zoo and theme park really works. They have rides for almost all age groups. Food courts are good too! We have Merlin Pass which helps with the discounts . You may find the app useful. The Azteca hotel for those choosing to stay is excellent. The only disappointment is that the tigers 🐅 seems to have gone missing from the land of tigers on our last visit. I’m pretty sure they had them before 🤔🧐 adding tiger’s picture from last year to the review.
  • This place is great but could be better. A great choice of different rides. This park was very clean. The sea centre is beautiful but there isn't so much going on there. It takes few minutes to go round it. I like how they use different themes throughout the park. The ride in the military like truck to see the giraffes, the zebra, the ostrich etc... was very good. The main attractions are really the different rides. The restrictions are set in height.from 1m and above there are lots of rides. There are also rides for the younger ones.
  • As always it's an action packed place to have fun for all ages. The smaller rides are great for younger guests and the bigger ones (e.g. Dragons Fury) are great fun for adults and children alike. The zoo has a wide range if animals from lions to giraffes to penguins to scorpions. Large selection of places to eat and buy food. Only thing to possibly improve is to add more attractions as it hasn't seen much innovation for some years to come.
  • Visited the zoo section only as the adventure park is not open out of season. This is an excellent opportunity to see most of the animals without crowds. I thought the keepers were very knowledgeable, there was a brilliant commentary by the girl managing the carnivore feeding. Enjoyed the zebra and giraffe 'peep'. This is not always available, but we'll worth the extra walking if offered.
