I have been visiting Chessington a lot lately. Despite it being something to do at the weekends, I just have that certain bond with the park. Having almost grown up with the place, with my first visit back in 1998, I still enjoy making a trip here. Having a zoo and theme park in one place, there is plenty of stuff to do for both adults and children alike.
I’m going to get all nostalgic now for this blog post. I was thinking the other day about how theme parks have changed, most notably the ones that I visited as a child – and what I can still remember to this day, my memory isn’t that great ha!
You may or may not have seen the major storm that has erupted on social media when Alton Towers announced their staggered openings hours. It’s not hard to miss since there’s an awful lot of unhappy customers, both enthusiasts and general public alike. On a personal level I don’t feel happy with the way the hours have been dramatically reduced – I mean, Forbidden Valley opening at midday is rubbish, I have to wait to get my Nemesis fix!
