surrey theme park to bring family favourite story to attraction in 2019

Chessington World of Adventures Resort has announced a new and enchanting addition to the Surrey Theme Park and Zoo opening Sunday March 10, 2019.

‘Room on the Broom - A Magical Journey’, brings to life yet another of author Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler’s  much-loved children’s stories, following in the footsteps of the Resort’s Gruffalo River Ride Adventure.

Families will be invited to visit the enchanted library and embark on their own spellbinding adventure. As the stormy wind blows, sending Witch’s hat, bow and wand tumbling to the ground, parents and children alike will have to search high and low in trees, fields and reeds helping Dog, Bird and Frog on their way to find the lost belongings. Guests will have to watch out though for a fearsome foe, Dragon, who fancies ‘Witch and chips’ for his tea!

It’s lovely that families will be able to enter the Room on the Broom world and enjoy the story in a new way at Chessington World of Adventures Resort.

Julia Donaldson children's author

Room on the Broom - A Magical Journey’ is set to open at Chessington World of Adventures Resort on Sunday March 10, 2019 and will be accompanied by two themed Room on the Broom bedrooms in the Chessington Safari Hotel.

Following the success of The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure, we are excited as we hope our guests will be, to unveil our plans for another Julia Donaldson-inspired attraction and we can’t wait to open the doors to the enchanted library.
