CHESSINGTON World of Adventures Resort is opening a new land next month – Shipwreck Coast.
Opened on July 15, the land was designed to look like a disaster town.

It includes two new rides, Trouble Trawler and Barrel Bail Out.
In Barrel Bail Out, guests will be propelled into barrels trapped in a whirlpool that they must empty of water.
Meanwhile, on Trawler Trouble, the captain of a trapped fishing boat needs help freeing him, so guests will be buffeted as if they’re surfing choppy waves.
The new rides sit alongside Seastorm, with its spinning miniature galleons, and the Blue Barnacle.
The land is inspired by coastal port towns with nautical themes such as lighthouses, boats, sails, fishing nets and anchors.
Kevin McIlmurray, Guest Experience Manager, said: “Our team has taken the much-loved land of Pirates’ Cove and transformed it into this amazing port town, Shipwreck Coast.”
Before that, the most recent new ride was Crop Drop, which opened at the theme park last year.
The attraction drops riders 25m into the air, where they are met below by the jaws of a “cursed crocodile” called Sobek, who is the ancient Egyptian crocodile god.
Tickets start from £39 per person and children under three get in free.
Or, take a proper break and spend the night, now that summer has arrived.
Chessington has brought back its glamping breaks, with deals on midweek breaks from £65 pp this summer.
They include one night, entry to the park, the zoo and the SEA LIFE center, as well as access to the Savannah paddling pool.
You will have good beds for sleeping – a double bed for adults and two single beds for children.
The tents are also equipped with free Wi-Fi and power outlets so you can charge all your devices.
And in the morning, you can enjoy a continental breakfast before heading to the parks.
You also get Early Ride Time – this means there are no queues on selected rides between 9am and 10am.
