Mini Animal kingdom UK adventure

So with both Paris and Florida cancelled we took the plunge and had a 3 night visit at Chessington World of Adventures.

It is very good and as close to animal Kingdom as you will get in the UK.

We had a safari themed room with views over the savana so woke up to the animals including giraffes

We did one day legoland (sun) and 2 chessington (mon / Tue).

Great rides, most were walk on, kids loved it, we stayed on most things and kept going round.

We swam every evening, ate out at the beefeater over the road and also in the restaurant.

Some good coasters at Chessington, hotel nice.

Really good 4 days away, kids fast asleep on the way home now.

We walked 10K most days even being on site.

Great break, highly recommended for a UK theme park fix !

Hi JessBlu,
We have just booked Chessington for weekend. I haven't been there in close to 30 years and a bit nervous. We have booked a 2 night stay on site which includes theme park tickets, but it isn't clear whether it includes 2 day park tickets or 3. Also worried that they won't let you use the left luggage (this actually put us off booking in summer) as we don't have a car. Can I ask questions:

1. Do you get theme park tickets for two days for a two night stay or three days? I called them and the girl on the phone really didn't seem to understand what I was asking, eventually she seemed to think that perhaps you got them for 2 days and could choose which two - but she didn't convince me that she actually knew that and wasn't guessing. It isn't clear on our booking confirmation either!

2. Do you have to book in advance to swim? any limit to how many times you can book?


3. Any other tips? assume there is nothing like a fast pass system there.


Thanks!
