Chessington have announced on their social media that their new land, the Rainforest, will officially open on March 19th.

With the MAP preview day being this weekend, could we be seeing a soft opening of the area?

As posted on SouthParks social media, Chessington have today revealed the theme park map for the 2020 season.

As well as featuring the new area, the Rainforest, and Elmer's Flying Jumbos, other notable changes include the addition of The Blue Barnacle, the replacement swinging ship, and the rebranding of Original Sandwich Co. in Land of the Dragons to Dragon's Lair Cafe, seemingly sponsored by NOW TV.

The eagle-eyed will also note that 'something new is being unearthed' on the former site of Rameses Revenge...

Social media appears to be awash of people attempting to change bookings at Chessington, and are being told no or to pay more, even in cases where customers are requested to self isolate by the government.

I honestly do not understand how Chessington, and I suspect Merlin more broadly, can operate in such a disgusting manner. When the Prime Minister yesterday said no one should be financially penalised for following government advice.
