Chessington World of Adventures fun

A few weekends ago now we booked a weekend away at Chessington World of Adventures. It was a spur of the moment idea, but I think those ideas work the best. We booked to stay one night in the Safari Hotel over looking at the animals. We have stayed in that hotel before so we know what the rooms are like.

  We didn't tell Little Miss P until the Friday night when we had our bags packed, she was so excited.  So Saturday morning we jumped in the car and off we went, we did stop off to have a Premier Inn breakfast too as for the price of the breakfast you can eat as much as you want. It was a great way to start the day.

We parked up at that hotel and walked straight to the park, no queues to get in so that was fantastic.
And most of the rides only had about 10 to 15 minute waits. The height of Little Miss P means she can go on all the rides now but she didn't want to go on some, I don't blame her especially Rameses Revenge. I don't even like that ride. Her favourite ride was Scorpion Express, it's like a runaway mine train and over the two days I think we must have gone on it about seven times. She did try a few rides that she wasn't keen on and didn't want to go on them again afterwards. But I'm proud of her for giving them a go. We now know that she likes spinning rides and not up and down rides, well big drops anyway.
There was a ride where you go on a little safari, cleverly called Zafari. You get in a truck type thing and it takes you round to see the animals, I absolutely love that ride and it was one of my favourite ones, you could also see our hotel from it. This ride had the biggest queue though.

  After a full day at the park we went back to our hotel. We went into our room and chilled out, watching a bit of telly then looked out the window at all the animals. We got an early night's sleep after popping to the bar for a drink as it was another full day in the park the next day. We got up for breakfast and it was an all you can eat breakfast again. And as we were staying in the hotel we could get into the park half an hour early to go on some of the rides. So we made the most of that.

It was another fun, full day and we also had a voucher for a pizza or pasta self-service restaurant. And I have to say the food was quite nice. We left the park when it shut and got on the road home but absolutely loved our little time away and would definitely go back there and stay in the hotel (and of course enjoy the theme park) all over again.
