As 2019 has drawn to a close, let’s take a look back at the 2019 season for Britain’s Wildest Adventure!
The park began the year operating a small number of rides as part of seasonal events tied to school holidays, along with weekend zoo days. Alongside this, seasonal maintenance occurred with some notably running beyond the Resort's main opening date. The largest change for the new season came from the conversion of Hocus Pocus Hall into a new walkthrough based on the children’s book, Room on the Broom - A Magical Journey, which added to the Resort's attractions based upon Julia Donalson's books.
A new food item was added to the rebranded Just Chicken outlet, the Donut Chicken Burger. Elsewhere smaller cosmetic enhancements were made to some rides, including Toadie’s Crazy Cars. Sadly, Black Buccaneer did not open for the 2019 season, with its fate currently unclear. Like its sister park Thorpe Park, Chessington installed a temporary inflatable attraction over the summer, 'The Bounce', to bring high energy fun to the resort.
Later in the season it was announced that Rameses Revenge would be leaving the Resort at the end of the year. In its place, plans were submitted for a highly themed drop tower, scheduled to open in 2021. Plans were also submitted to build a mini log flume for 2020 and relocate and retheme Flying Jumbos to Elmer's Flying Jumbos. The season ended with Howl’o’Ween, which offered a new family maze but also unexpectedly the After Dark upcharge of pre-existing attraction, Creepy Caves.
