A Brand New Partnership

In order to create this one of a kind live show, Chessington World of Adventures Resort has teamed up with Europe’s leading special effects and animatronics designers – Millennium FX –to create the stars of the Pandamonium show; an incredibly life like animatronic Panda family. Millennium FX - who house multi award winning artists with numerous BAFTA and Royal Television Society awards across a number of categories including special effects - proved the perfect partner for this project and the creative teams at Chessington are delighted to have joined forces with the Millennium FX team.

Pandamonium - A UK First!

The Pandamonium Live Show itself is a world first! Never before has a theme Park launched a show starring animatronic animals, let alone life-size and life like pandas! This show will give families a one of a kind experience; guests will not believe their eyes as they are given the opportunity to get closer to these amazing animals than would ever be possible anywhere else in the UK. As a Theme Park and a Zoo Chessington are always looking for ways to push the boundaries of the guest experience, this one of a kind show will give guests an interaction with pandas that they will have never before experienced.

Chessington are hoping that the up close experience will raise awareness and a passion for conservation for these endangered animals.  With a brand new stage area situated next to the newly revamped Trail of the Kings attraction, you will sit just feet away from what appears to be living breathing pandas, everything from the way they move to the noises they make will have you believing they are real. Audiences will be in awe of the enormous Mummy and Daddy panda as they roam the new stage and will undoubtedly go ‘awww’ when the sweet little baby pandas make their debut. However like real life pandas, Chessington’s pack have some mischief up their sleeve and as they cause complete chaos on stage, the whole family will be roaring with laughter at the mayhem which follows.
