Halloween Hocus Pocus at Chessington

Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle

FROM October 20 to October 31, 2007, Chessington World of Adventures and Zoo opens up for Halloween Hocus Pocus.

Centre stage is a coven of witches moving in to take over the park, setting up camp and creating all sorts of chaos to prevent visitors putting their spells into the park’s massive cauldron!

Chessington Zoo’s rats, owls, spiders and snakes will all come out to greet guests as the park is transformed into a scary, haunted and dark hubbub of Halloween festivities. With pumpkins, bats and vampires aplenty, Halloween Hocus Pocus will be the place to celebrate All Hallow Eve – with rides in the dark and plenty of creepy crawlies.

And that’s not all – the Chessington Challenge will be back with a brand new selection of scary challenges for those who dare brave them. To take part, visit

There’s also the new foam-injected Bubbleworks ride sponsored by Imperial Leather, another new interactive animal adventure guaranteed to delight “little monkeys” of all ages and a constantly changing calendar of events and activities featuring some very special guest stars.

Or take a walk through the jungle where you can meet some Squirrel monkeys and find out if you can stretch as far as a condor.

And with over 90% of rides and attractions for under 12s, plus a host of exciting rides for the more thrill seeking Adventurers such as the spin-sational Dragon’s Fury and the fang-tastic Vampire coasters, Chessington promises a hassle free, action packed family day out everyone will want to share.
