First of all we would like to thank Chessington World of Adventures for the great hospitality inviting us to the Creepy Caves opening. We have had a Merlin annual pass now for 2 years and we have never had a bad day while visiting there.

We were in the first group to encounter Chessington scariest mazes to date. We have to say we agree,

the barbed wire fencing in the queue line makes it look very disturbing, After the pre talk about the caves you head down to the decontamination room which is really well done, The lab area really did feel like a working lab, after that the jump scares begin (we are not going to give much away) the final scene was a great ending that made for a really great jump scare. We really enjoyed the maze and it is also nice standing outside the maze watching other people's reactions.


Please see below photos from the event and details for Chessingtons Howl'o'ween event.

Visit Chessington World of Adventures Resort between October 20 to 31 2017 for a spooky Howl’o’ween experience. NOW with two new attractions!

Open late every night until 8pm. Spend this Howl’o’ween at Chessington World of Adventures Resort with four attractions including new for 2017 Creepy Caves Unearthed and Room on the Broom* Spooky Story Time, plus rides in the dark.

With a ‘three bat rating’ Creepy Caves Unearthed is Chessington’s scariest attraction yet. With Zoo Keepers going missing, the Resort has issued one warning, ‘enter at your own risk’. Also new for 2017, is Room on the Broom Spooky Story Time. With a ‘one bat rating’, young adventurers can enjoy a storytelling based on the much loved book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, published by Macmillan Children’s Books.

The ‘two bat rated’ Curse of the Lost Tomb maze returns as well, where adventurers can delve into the secret lost tomb of Genghis Khan, full of mystery and riddles. Trick or Treat Wood is back for those who prefer their scares a little sweeter the whole family can choose a tempting treat or a troublesome trick in the  magical woods.

Rides in the dark also return, with last ride entry at 8pm. Take a flight of fright on Vampire, spin underneath the stars on Dragon’s Fury’s, or incur the wrath of Rameses’ Revenge. Plus, with animal shows, a fancy dress competition and character meet and greets, there’s spooky fun around every corner.

For the best deals, head to Chessington.com to book Early Bird Tickets before the 15th October, with prices starting from just £26pp for the spooky saver and £30pp for the spooky saver bundle, which includes park and creepy caves entry.
