Love that post Craig, very funny and informative. I also loved that day, very fun trip! :) I for one will miss Beanoland greatly, it was definitely one of my favourite areas in the park and I remember loving it on my first visit to Chessington. As sad as I am that Beanoland is gone, I very much looking forward to the new area, because so far the plans look amazing!

Went to Chessington for the first time a few weeks ago, partly to see Beanoland before it closed, since I was an avid reader in my *ahem* youth.

It was great, until I got thirsty, and saw the 'drinking fountain'. I didn't try drying off with the 'dryer'..

I am glad you liked it. There will be a video also depending on if I have enough footage or not.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Construction Update 17th October

Okay this is an update I took when I had a few hours at the park. The pictures are not that great and there are not that many as I only had my iPhone with me, but they show of the main bulk of the work being carried out.

I'm amazed you managed to get pictures that good, as those fences are pretty tall! I'm very excited for this new land and I feel it is going to help secure Chessington as the UK's best family day out. Not sure if this has already been posted but the names for the attractions are as follows. Kobra, the new Disko coaster, Monkey Swinger, waveswinger, Tuk Tuk Turmoil Dodgems, dodgems, Jungle Bus, crazy bus and Temple of Mayhem, madhouse.

It's weird to see Beanoland getting torn away, I've never been to Chessington without it!

I do have decent expectations of the new area. Merlin have proved themselves quite capable of created some decent theming.

Thanks for the construction update, Craig! Hope you can bring us more in the future!

I will be doing my very best to get construction updates for the new land.

I can't remember if I mention this but the fountains on Billy's Whizzer are staying but getting modifyed in a mysterious, mythical way!
