Chessington

Winter Opening Treetop Challenge and Treetop Adventure open weekends throughout winter. 

Just a stone’s throw away from Chessington World of Adventures Resort this really is a mecca for thrill seekers. Our first ever theme park location, this is roller coaster fun in the trees. Be prepared for some challenging crossings and gather the troops for the brilliant four-person zip wire – that’s not something you’ll find anywhere else!

Start them young - bring the whole family and build little ones’ tree climbing skills and confidence on our Treetop Adventure course. They’ll be no stopping them after the final exhilarating zip ride.

This location is all about heart-thumping fun. With Chessington World of Adventures setting the thrill factor to high, we’ve turned the dial to the maximum to give you the ultimate in high rope fun.

After challenging yourself, friends and family high up in the trees why not head over to the World of Adventure and give yourself a high-speed, high-octane thrill on one of the theme park’s famous rides such as Rameses Revenge or the Vampire.

If you’re an animal lover you can get face to face with over 1000 exotic animals at Chessington Zoo. Adults and children will all get a thrill from seeing lions, tigers, gorillas, monkeys, penguins and sealions.

  • We really enjoyed our experience with go ape. If you have any issues with heights this is not for you. The instructors were very nice and helpful and explained things clearly. I would highly recommend it. Those with young active children this would be an excellent birthday party!

  • I took my 8 year old and his friends to the Chessington Go Ape for his birthday. They were held up by a group who were less confident in the trees, I didn’t even need to say anything, the team automatically let them have some extra time. My monkeys had an amazing time swinging from the trees.
