Thinking of going to Chessington in the summer

Have had a rotten start to the new year so need to have something to look forward to. Anyone been to Chessington?? Is it any good? It's a bit of a trek for us Scots so would like to know if it will be worth it. Went to Legoland last year and had a great time with the kids.

its not bad but alton towers is much better n less of a trek for u!
both are generally packed in the summer tho so expect long queues
#2
wee one only 4 and don't think alton has much for her age, but thanks:thumbsup:

Yh good but not sure I'd travel down from Scotland for it - Alton Towers is better

Edit: In which case Chessington would be better than Alton Towers. We take ours to Legoland and that's great for 4 year old - mine love it!!

We drove down last year to Legoland, stopping overnight in Manchester. The kids though it was a big adventure sleeping in different hotels and eating out all the time!!

Isn't Thorpe Park more kid friendly?
#6
tbh not sure even chessingtons is that good for a 4 year old its quite limited on young kids rides altho it does have the zoo area as well.

thorpe park is better for the kids, but mine is 5 now and is starting to get into chessington a little more

both are pretty good, and with chessington you also have the animals and the sea life centre to visit so there is more to do while you are there than at thorpe park

Is Legoland good then?

I'm taking my boys who are 5 & 2 in August. It's going to be pretty hectic isn't it?!

We're staying in the Windsor travelodge for 2 nights as well. Anyone know what it's like? Nice I hope!

Not really looking forward to the drive. I live in Nottingham & I've never driven that far before :oops:

Legoland will be great or your little ones ( 5 + 2yrs) - make sure you take a change of clothes as they get wet - i can assure you -- and you dont want to have to buy Legoland ones = astronomical prices

Legoland is brilliant, my two were 4 and 9 when we went and there was loads for them to do, and they loved all the lego statue's

Thorpe park is not that good for kids, my son is 9 and there is more for him to go on in Chessington (like Vampire) the swinging boat is better, he's allowed on dragon etc; quite a few rides in Thorpe are for adults/tall kids only, but it does have a nice beach area ;-)

Going to Chessy myself as well.

My boys are 6 & 2 so going there will be good for them.

Should you also need some retail therapy ( I know you girls like it) while us men wait outside (:w00t:) you have Kingston town centre not too far from Chessington. River Thames next to it and a small boat trip up to Hampton Court could waste another day.

Did Drayton Manor last year and that was very good the young one but not alot for the eldest.
Want to goto Alton Towers but that is just me being selfish (Rollercoaster addict!!)
