Chessington or Thorpe Park? Help advice needed

    Please help, my wife's nephews have come and we want to take them along with my 2 young daughters to a theme park. We've got ages from 2-17. We thought Lego Land might boring for the older ones but and advise would be appreciated.


    Thorpe Park is absolutely rubbish for younger kids. Chessington is better, but not great for 2 year olds.

    Chessington does have some stuff for little ones - but you may need to be prepared to take it in turns to 'babysit' the younger ones on the smaller rides whilst the others break off to do the big ones.

    But definitely avoid Thorpe Park with a 2 year old. There's nothing they can do.

    Went to Chessington recently - 2 year old loved the gruffalo ride / meeting gruffalo seeing the animals and few other smaller rides . Older ones still had rides like rameses revenge and vampire to keep them happy enough

    Legoland for ages 2 to 7 (Windsor and Eton)
    Chessington World for ages 7 to 12 (Chessington South)
    Thorpe Park for ages 12+ (Staines)

    Go to Tesco's find the longest queue and stand in it, same experience but a hell of a lot cheaper.
