In the beginning, Chessington World of Adventures was a nondescript zoo with a few fairground rides tacked on. Now it's a fully-fledged theme park which offers a packed day out for families. Enjoy over 40 rides and attractions in 10 themed lands, a zoo with over 1,000 animals, SEA LIFE centre, and Go Ape tree top climbing adventure with rope crossings and a four person zip-wire. Despite the fact that all of the rides have the same low height limit of 3ft 11'', the park still boasts a couple of genuine white-knuckle rides. If you prefer to keep your feet firmly on the ground head for the zoo. One of the highlights here is the Trail of the Kings adventure which takes intrepid visitors on a quest through the jungle, meeting gorillas, Sumatran tigers, spotted Persian leopards and majestic Asian lions en route. The safari offers panoramic views over the park and a good angle on the some animal compounds - especially the penguins, otters and sea lions.
