Park News - (9/18/14) You can catch up on all the details for Chessington’s Howl’o’ween taking place at the park from Oct. 24 to Nov. 2 over at Themeparks-UK.
(8/13/14) Themeparks-UK takes a look around the newly opened Azteca Hotel at Chessington this week, featuring 3 themed floors with 69 family-friendly rooms, plus a unique interactive-restaurant.
(9/25/13) Oh Merlin… it has been far too long since your crazy hyper-machine churned out a new insane marketing story… but we’ve got one this week that is one of the strangest of all. According to this (cough—cough) news story, Chessington has decided to ban guests wearing animal print clothing into the park because it confuses the animals. They claim to have employeed bouncers of all things to enforce this zero-tolerance ban on Zebra, Giraffe, Leopand and African Wild Dog print clothing.
And why all the sudden confusion? Because they claim the 22-acre Zufari attraction that opened a few months ago is such a replica of the real Serengeti plains, that the animals are just too confused to handle it all when coming into close contact with guests. Guests in the park in animal patterns will be supplied with Chessington branded clothing when taking their ride on Zufari.
2015 - New Show - Rumor - (9/2/14) ThemeParks-UK reports that Chessington will replace the park’s Madagascar Live! show with something new for the 2015 season.
