How does the Ride Access Pass work?

Following guest feedback, we are now proud to offer four categories of Ride Access Pass at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, which we have implemented on a trial basis. Categories are as follows:

ORANGE: Pass user may ride all rides and attractions unaccompanied.*

PURPLE: Pass user must be accompanied by a companion aged 14+ when riding attractions with complex evacuation procedures, and can ride all other attractions unaccompanied.*

BLUE: Pass user must be accompanied by a companion aged 14+, and can ride all attractions.* 

YELLOW: Pass user must be accompanied by a companion aged 14+, and can only ride attractions suitable for non-ambulant riders*

*All ride restrictions still apply.


  • Pass users must visit Guest Help & Information every day, where they’ll pick up a green Ride Access Pass card. Adventurers also have the option to collect a wristband, if they do not wish to show their gold Registration Card at each ride.
  • Most rides have a designated entrance for Ride Access Pass users. The entrance for each individual attraction is highlighted in the Accessibility Guide.
  • On arrival, the Ride Attendant will ask to see today’s Ride Access Pass, alongside either a valid gold ID card or a wristband.
  • Before allowing access to the ride, the Ride Attendant will mark the card with the time at which the Pass User can enjoy their next attraction – placing them in a ‘virtual queue’. (This time is calculated by adding the queue time of your current attraction, to the time now.)

Once your pass is full, you can return to Guest Help & Information, where we’ll replace it with a new one (you must bring your completed card).

A maximum of three companions may accompany the pass user on any one attraction, and can be interchanged throughout the day. For some pass users, a companion will be compulsory – further details can be found in the Accessibility Guide.

Height, size and other safety restrictions also apply, and are detailed in the Accessibility Guide as well as on signage throughout the park.


We hope this answers your question.
