Chessington launches free safari experiences including entry to the theme park

Chessington World of Adventures has launched a brand new safari experience for families - and the best part is that it's completely FREE. The new Safari Adventure, in partnership with Hyundai, will see families driven by a Resort Park Ranger in fully electric Kona SUVs around the Wanyama Reserve, home to the likes of zebras and ostriches. Oh, and for something extra special, guests will stop at the 'tower' to hand-feed Chessington's five giraffes.

There's more good news for parents as the whole experience also includes entry to the theme park at no extra cost, so you can make a full day out of it!

Guests can get up close to the animals in the cars

During the drives, the resort park rangers and families will be required to wear masks (apart from children under 11 years old).

However, Chessington is also providing some fun animal-printed and child-friendly masks for free as part of the experience. The resort teamed up with Hyundai to create the fun new adventure, after research from the car manufacturer found that parents are cautious of organising days out during the pandemic, but also worried about not spending enough quality time together as a family.

Families will be driven around the safari park in Kona Electric SUVs

The survey found that nearly half of British parents are cautious to start everyday family activities with their children, while a over a third worry that they're not spending enough quality time together. As government restrictions continue to ease, the UK's theme parks have been re-opened for a few weeks now - Chessington included.

Keep an eye out for animals including giraffes around the park

The park had closed for three months during lockdown, but is now re-open with a reduced capacity of 60% of guests.

The theme park, zoo and resort have re-opened, and while the majority of rides and outdoor attractions are open, some indoor facilities are still closed at the time of writing.

Visitors will have their temperature checked when arriving, and will need to bring face masks for public areas of the hotels, gift shops and arcades, as well as some of the rides themselves.
