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.

You could also visit Hampton Court to experience the public dramas and private lives of Henry VIII, his wives and children in the world of the Tudor court. Epsom Common Nature Reserve is also close by.

  • Head over to Hampton Court Palace for some historical culture.

  • Fancy a longer stay? Choose from over 40 themed bedrooms at the Chessington Safari Hotel, or sleep under the stars with Explorer Glamping.
  • Did the junior course with our 6 year old. The staff were absolutely incredible with her (and the other children on the course who were scared)! Great day for older ones. I’ve given four stars because I think it’s a bit tricking and daughting for such young children. Otherwise great fun


  • The whole experience from the telephone booking, to the arrival at Reception, to all aspects of the Activity itself, tonthe completion of the Activity, to being handed the Free Parking Ticket on leaving, was outstanding in every respect, and I cannot speak to highly of Go Ape Chessington. This was my third visit with my seven years old Grandson, but the first occasion on which I have joined him on the Course itself. It was his priority Activity for HalfTerm, and for me, it was a memorable experience to share the whole experience with him, both on and above ground! Without doubt, Go Ape is an exceptional Set-Up, and totally professional in every aspect of its operation. Whereas it is perhaps wrongly customary for the Management both on-site and at Head Office to take the credit for success stories, itvis so often forgotten that it is the calibre, commitment, attitude, loyalty and professionalism ofvthe staff on the ground who are the ones who really deserve the praise and recognition, because without them, the Orgsnisation would sinlmy be just one of many, as opposed to standing head and shoulders above the others. Although this is my own personal view, it is also based on many years experience, both hands on and in management where there is the opportunity made for young people to very actively become involved in and take responsibility for providing an outstanding activity and service, particularly to not only other young people and children, but also to adults. Without doubt all the young people working at Chessington were not only a credit to the Organisation, but more importantly to their generation and to themselves!

  • Great fun for family. My daughter (13 yo) and son (8 yo) thoroughly enjoyed the experience. My wife and I also took part and it was a thrilling experience, different from theme parks and also helped my wife to overcome her fear of heights. Area of improvement: Please change the coffee machine. The coffee was rubbish.

  • Great really well organised, staff were brilliant

    Michael Read

  • Friendly staff and amazing experience


  • Really enjoyed it. Would have been good to know that we could have taken spectators. It might have been on the paperwork, but nothing obvious/ Other than that, a fantastic couple of hours hanging 40ft above the forest floor. Even looking down on bemused squirrels...
