Surrey Theme Park and Zoo Chessington World of Adventures Resort has announced their new Rainforest Land will open in 2020.
Perfect for families with kids in search of their first wild adventure, you can explore the rainforests of the world by road, taking the wheel on Jungle Rangers; then by river, making a splash on mini-log flume, River Rafts, and finally from the treetop canopy, bouncing up high on Treetop Hoppers. Throughout your exciting adventure you will spot creatures including tortoises and capybaras, the world’s largest rodent.
Joining 10 other Lands at Chessington, the Rainforest is inspired by the Resort’s support of international conservation charity, World Land Trust (WLT), which protects the world’s most biologically important and threatened habitats acre-by-acre. Chessington’s Conservation Fund has supported the WLT for the last eight years, saving an area of threatened rainforest in Ecuador more than double the size of the Resort and protecting it annually against poaching, illegal logging, mining and encroaching from farming, by funding ‘Keepers of the Wild’ (Rangers), to safeguard the area.
With its new Land, Chessington hopes to educate guests, via a fun day out, about the importance of conserving the world’s rainforests.
In addition to the Rainforest, everyone’s favourite patchwork elephant, Elmer, is set to fly into Chessington in 2020 as the Resort launches Elmer’s Flying Jumbos. Fans of the picture-book character created by David McKee and published by Andersen Press, will be able to pick a colourful elephant to take them to the skies on the flying carousel surrounded by jungle, inspired by the Elmer books.
