Chessington World of Adventures Resort prepares to reopen - Engineer climbs Croc Drop

With all the Resort getting ready to reopen for the 2022 season TOMORROW, all the teams across the Park have been preparing to welcome guests back.

Engineers have been carrying out maintenance and checks on all the rides, including on Croc Drop, ahead of the big day! These essential checks included one brave engineer having to climb the structure– which is over 80ft tall – to ensure the ride is ready for adventurers to embark into the crocodile’s jaws on Thursday.

Elsewhere, the Zoo Keepers tended to the animals. The group of California sea lions were particularly interested whilst one Keeper got the windows spick and span, and the tower of giraffe enjoyed a treat.

The Creative Team were also hard at work perfecting any finishing touches to the Park, from painting intricate murals to adding the new topiary animals across each land, including a giraffe, monkey, and a super-sized penguin.

We’re SO excited to welcome all of you Adventurers back!
