Schools Frequently Asked Questions

Does the park expose children to water?

Some rides and attractions at Chessington World of Adventures Resort expose children to water.

Could any floor surfaces at the park be slippery i.e. due to water? If so, what measures are in place to prevent accidents?

We ensure that floor surfaces are non-slip wherever possible. The outdoor nature of the park means that it is exposed to weather conditions that can have an adverse affect on surfaces. Care needs to be taken when surfaces are wet.

Are there height restrictions for all rides and attractions?

There are height restrictions on some of the rides at the park. Specific restrictions can be found on this site and on park maps, which are given out on the day of your visit. Please read the ride restrictions situated at the entrance to each ride before entering the queue line.

Do any of the attractions involve being in confined spaces?

Some of the rides and attractions can be quite small in area and to some individuals these may feel confined. However no areas on the park can be defined as a confined space.

Safety glass is used throughout the park.

In the event that children do misbehave and climb on railings etc – do staff members take disciplinary action?

The park has regulations displayed at the entrance. Staff are trained to enforce these regulations for the benefit of all adventurers. Staff will instruct children to behave where necessary.

Health and Safety

The quality and safety of all our rides and attractions are of the utmost importance and therefore a considerable amount of time and effort is spent on making all visits a safe and fun experience. Merlin Entertainments Group who own the theme park are Europe’s leading operator and developer of visitor attractions. Due to the complexity of theme park operations in the UK a summary of all main health and safety requirements is set out below:

Legal Requirements

Health and Safety at Work Act etc 1974 – This is the principle Act that applies to the company and is to ensure that all workers in all occupations are protected by law. Its purpose is to provide one comprehensive integrated system of law, dealing with health, safety and welfare of employees and members of the public who are affected by work activities. The Act is written in very general terms and does not require many specific requirements for managing health and safety at work. Instead, the Act places a general duty on employers to provide safe systems of work that are so far as is reasonably practicable, safe and without risks to health.

Under the HASWA Act 1974 are many specific regulations which relate to work activities on site. The principle requirement being to undertake risk assessments to identify ‘hazards’ and assess the risk under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.

- The health and safety policy is signed by the Chief Executive Officer for Merlin Entertainments Group and the Divisional Director for the park.

- Risk Assessments are undertaken by all departmental Managers with reference to the work activities that they manage. Risk Assessments are reviewed at least annually or if any significant change takes place with regard to a work activity or area of work. Due to the volume of risk assessment documents it is not possible to send these out on an individual basis.

- The park is covered by Public Liability Insurance. The amount of cover provided by this policy is &10 million. The Policy is with ACE Insurance (Policy No: 47UKAO7552).

- The park is duel enforced by the local Health and Safety Executive and Environmental Health Department.

Engineering/Maintenance of Rides:

All new rides must be designed and manufactured in accordance with strict standards and comply with UK requirements. Any new ride specifications with associated calculations are submitted to an outside independent inspection engineer in order to establish that the design is sound. This includes all aspects of the ride, i.e. forces involved, type of restraint, type of passenger carrying unit, any restrictions such as height, this process being known as ‘verification’.

In addition to this all existing rides and new rides have an ‘In-Service Annual Inspection’ by outside independent inspection engineers to ensure the safety and integrity of the ride for each season. Daily inspections are also carried out by our own qualified engineers.

Ride/Attraction Operation:

The operation of all rides on park is conformant with strict documented procedures and manufacturers guidance. The rides team have a considerable amount of experience in operating rides and attractions which ensures safe operating standards.
