Chessington - Quick Questions

Tue Feb 21, 2017 11:13 pm

So in march I will be setting off to visit the UAE with the ecc and on my return journey I will have a whole day to kill in london. So I thinking of paying a visit to chessington or thorpe but the problem is I will be stuck with my luggage. My question is is there anywhere I can store this on site?

How much luggage? 1 bag or several suitcases? There are lockers available but these are quiet small so unlikely to fit a suit case in.

One of these these so not the smallest but if need be its something that wouldn't be such a huge pain to move around.

the only suggestion i could offer is contact the park via email/social media explain your situation, when youll be visting... as they may be able to help you out. better to ask in advance than put them on the spot.

Anyone know where they take the reindeers and donkeys when they go for their stroll through the park? Twice I've seen them being led through Pirate Cove from the zoo area towards Wild Asia.

I'm not too sure to be honest, but I've seen them go past the new-ish entrance to Land of the Dragons and through Market Square - so I can assume they go through Pirate's Cove, up that pathway near Fury, through Market Square and back round maybe?

Seems a reasonable route. Very unlikely to take them much further up towards Wild Asia, otherwise the new residents there might think they're getting a takeaway delivery service.

Hopefully next time I see them I won't be eating lunch and can follow on.

I am trying to find the music from the Safari/Azteca Hotel lobby, Zafari Bar & Grill and conference areas. It is a compilation of various different tracks of African music. I am presuming that as they have been playing even when it was a Holiday Inn they are most likely trans available to download from Apple Music/Spotify etc, but was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction, either already having a list of them etc. Your help would be most appreciated as always brings back memories of many visits. Thanks in advance

Anyone know what the state of the Explorer Car Park is? It was still under construction a couple of weeks ago and it's currently not listed on the Chessington website, bar a brief mention in a bit about motorhomes.

Would be nice to know if there's going to be parking issues this weekend beforehand. I sent a message to Chessington direct, but no response. :(

To answer my own question: Chessington have just confirmed to me that Explorer Car Park will be open from tomorrow. :)
