I guess this is now pointless, But if it got removed, I would've replaced it with either something like Manta at SWSD or something like Rewind Racers at Adventure City


Even though I've never ridden it as Professor Burps or Soap Factory, I'd love to see it return to Professor Burps with the Gas Room, Mixing Room, and Fruit Juice Fountain


Way Off Topic, But I would love if Garfield got rethemed like Professor Burps.

Chessington has announced their new ride for 2017! In 2017 a 'new' ride will be opening themed to the Gruffalo! This could be really good as long as they make it feel authentic and magical without being tacky or patronizing, it should be a really good move for the park. It is most likely moving into the building where Bubbleworks used to live and use the same ride system, just instead of a chaotic factory Chessington have said the riders will come "face to face with the Gruffalo".

I really hope they do a good job on this one.
Note to self: don't be stupid...

Current top coaster = Expedition GeForce.

Holy crap you have a HUGE donkey!

We have a name for the new ride for 2017 (rethemed Bubbleworks).

From SouthParks Facebook page:
Ahead of the New Year’s Day announcement, it has been revealed on the Chessington short breaks website that the new attraction at Chessington World of Adventures Resort will be called The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure!

The Gruffalo will also be arriving at the Safari Hotel in 2017 with the addition of new themed rooms featuring a range of interactive elements and a Gruffalo gift. As part of their stay guests will also receive Fastrack access to some of the Resort's rides including the new attraction.

Today, Chessington hosted the media preview for their new area for 2018, Land of the Tiger, featuring Tiger Rock.

Dragon Falls, the classic Mack Log Flume, has been rethemed in to the new area and is now intertwined with Tiger enclosures containing rare Amur Tigers.

Here's some photos from today:

Land of the Tiger at Chessington is looking fantastic, yesterday I was invited to the media event and had a good look around the area, it has a 'Busch Gardens feel' about it in places;

Today Chessington have opened Room on a Broom - A Magical Journey.

It's a nice walk-through attraction for younger guests, based on the popular childern's book by author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler.

Chessington World of Adventures Resort has announced the addition of a new themed land, the Rainforest which will include three new family-friendly rides.

https://www.chessington.com/the-rainforest/

OPENING MARCH 2020!
Chessington World of Adventures Resort unearths a NEW Land, the Rainforest, featuring three rides!

Perfect for families with kids in search of their first wild adventure, explore the rainforests of the world by road, taking the wheel on Jungle Rangers; by river, making a splash on mini-log flume, River Rafts, and from the treetop canopy, bouncing up high on Treetop Hoppers, all while spotting creatures including tortoises and capybaras, the world’s largest rodent.

Tickets from only £29.50 when you book 5+ days in advance.

JUNGLE RANGERS
Little explorers take the wheel on Jungle Rangers, a car ride where they navigate their vehicle along the trail, spotting creatures along the way.

RIVER RAFTS
Make a splash on mini-log flume, River Rafts – watch out though for the cheeky chimps that live along the waterway!

TREETOP HOPPERS
Climb above the treetop canopy, bouncing up high on Treetop Hoppers, but be careful, what goes up...

Joining 10 other real and mythical Lands at Chessington, the Rainforest is inspired by our support of international conservation charity, World Land Trust (WLT), which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre-by- acre.

Our Conservation Fund has supported the WLT for the last eight years, saving an area of threatened rainforest in Ecuador double the size of the Resort and protecting it annually against poaching, illegal logging, mining and encroaching from farming, by funding ‘Keepers of the Wild’ (Rangers), to safeguard the area.


It has also been announced that Elmer's Flying Jumbos will open this year.

In addition to our NEW Land for 2020, the Rainforest, everyone’s favourite patchwork elephant, Elmer, is set to fly into Chessington for Elmer’s Flying Jumbos.

Fans of the picture-book character will be able to pick a colourful elephant to take them to the skies.

^I think out of those 4 rides, only the mini-flume is new. All the others are existing rides being re-themed.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?

Even the mini-flume has been relocated from a sealife centre!

Thousands of frontline NHS staff are being tested for coronavirus at Chessington World of Adventures, it has emerged.

The children’s theme park, in Surrey, has had six lanes set up in its car park for doctors and nurses to get checked in a drive-thru facility.

The workers will remain in their cars while medics in protective clothing take a nose and throat swab.

Chessington is understood to be one of several sites nationwide rolling out the tests for all NHS staff, announced on Friday.

Cabinet Minister Michael Gove, who was standing in for the Prime Minister at the daily press briefing, said the government was working in a "new alliance" with universities, businesses and researchers to boost testing capacity.

“These tests will be trialled for people on the front line starting immediately, with hundreds to take place by the end of the weekend – dramatically scaling up next week," he said.

The tests will initially cover critical care employees but will also cover those in A&E, ambulances and GPs, and will act as a check before they return to work.
Image
More than 6,200 confirmed coronavirus patients are currently in hospitals across England and a further 846 people have been admitted to intensive care wards since the outbreak began.

Sir Simon Stevens, the NHS chief executive, said on Friday: “From an NHS perspective, we think it is urgently important that we are able to test frontline workers who are off sick or otherwise isolating."

It came on the UK’s darkest day for coronavirus-related deaths, which surged by 181 in 24 hours on Friday, and a staggering surge in UK cases, now standing at 14,579.

Boris Johnson vowed to drastically increase Covid-19 tests from around 5,000 to 25,000, with NHS workers prioritised, amid increasing pressure to match other affected countries’ testing rates.

Downing Street is now itself facing questions after Mr Johnson, Health Secretary Matt Hancock and England’s Chief Medical Officer Prof Chris Whitty were all struck down by the virus within hours.
