Chessington World of Adventures Resort Launches 'Monster Checker' Service

With a week of spooky spectacles set to be unleashed this October, Chessington World of Adventures Resort is launching a new Monster Checker Service. Available at both the Chessington Safari and Azteca Hotels for a limited time only during the Resort's Howl'o'ween activities over the half term holiday, this new service will give guests of all ages peace of mind when bedtime rolls around.


The new feature allows guests to request the Chessington Spook Squad; a specialised group of bogey-monster busters.  The Spook Squad will check for creepy creatures of the other world that have made the hotels their home for the bewitching week. Peering under beds, peeking behind curtains and peeping in wardrobes, the Spook Squad will leave no pillow unturned in the task of guaranteeing a guest's room fiend-free!


Becky Elkin at Chessington World of Adventures Resort said, "Child or adult, we can still be a little scared of what could be lurking in the shadows especially with all the spooky goings on at the Resort over Howl’o’ween.  We hope that with the aid of our Spook Squad, all guests will be able to rest in peace."


Whilst the Spook Squad are hard at work, families can enjoy the Howl'o'ween festivities at the Resort and take a spooky walk through two brand new attractions – the Curse of the Lost Tomb maze and the Trick or Treat Wood.


A Spooky Short Break

For the ultimate spooky family adventure why not stay at one of the two Chessington Resort Hotels with packages including an overnight stay, breakfast and two days’ worth of park tickets and starting from just £287 per family. With creepy animal meet and greets, The Rangers Kids Club, a spooky movie club and lots of fun activities for the whole family to enjoy, Chessington is the place to be haunting this Howl'o'ween.
