Re: Chessington - The Future

As posted on SouthParks, information about a new Rainforest land at CWOA has been revealed. The new land will contain three rides and a small number of animals, and is inspired by the Resort's work with the World Land Trust.

Included in the new land will be a new junior log flume named River Rafts, a redesign of Toadie's Crazy Cars to a driving adventure Jungle Rangers, and the area will also include Treetop Hoppers. Some of the Resort's animals, including giant tortoise and capybara, will also move to this new area. Alongside this development is the re-theme and relocation of Flying Jumbos to become Elmer's Flying Jumbos.

I think that this is a fantastic investment. Once again, a section of the park that has got the official Chessington treatment, I did think that the area needed a theme of some sort and Toadies Crazy Cars is a classic ride. Plus this mini log flume is perfect for those underneath the height requirement for Tiger Rock and Treetop Hoppers would get a nice new lick of paint to make it look fresh.

As for Elmer's Flying Jumbos, absolutely brilliant IP and very rare for the UK

I wonder if Jungle Rangers will include any show scenes or if it will just be plywood cut outs or maybe even some 3D models spaced around the track? 

I think this is a really smart move from the park, they haven't brought any new ride systems, just moved a few and refurbished them. It's a good way of getting a "new" area out of already existing rides and attractions.
