DreamWorks Weekenders – Available January, February and March

Shrektacular Short Breaks from £159

Join us for a Shrektacular weekend full of DreamWorks madness this Winter! Start your expedition in the land of far, far away as you go wild at Shrek’s Adventure! London. Then join us at Chessington World of Adventures Resort to continue your wildly unique short break with our friends from Madagascar.


DreamWorks Weekenders are a two day short breaks package set across two of London’s most exciting attractions – Chessington World of Adventures Resort and Shrek’s Adventure! London.

Day 1

Begin your short break by travelling a short distance into London on the train, and come face to face with Shrek, Donkey, Puss in Boots and many more at Shrek’s Adventure! London – a unique walk and ride attraction for the whole family that’s new for 2015!

Step into the kingdom of Far Far Away and enjoy a madcap Shrek adventure where amazing DreamWorks animation, captivating story-telling and a good dose of Donkey’s cheekiness awaits.

Once your fairytale at Shrek’s Adventure is over, it’s time to return to Chessington World of Adventures Resort to continue your wildly unique short break. After you’ve checked in to one of our amazing on site hotels and enjoyed dinner, get ready to experience an evening full of hotel entertainment with your friends from the Madagascar movies, including character meet and greets, kids party games, a family game show and much more!

Day 2

After a sleep beyond your wildest dreams, the party continues as both Shrek and Alex the Lion from Madagascar join you at breakfast, before you head onto Park for a day full of adventure and discovery at Chessington World of Adventures Resort’s Zoo and SEA LIFE centre! With over 1000 incredible animals to marvel at, plus a special meet and greet from Skipper and the gang from DreamWorks Penguins of Madagascar, this is a wild adventure that’s sure not to disappoint before you head home after a fun packed weekend!

How Much does it cost?

DreamWorks Weekender packages start from the great value price of just £159 for a family of four! Your package will include:

  • Tickets to Shrek’s Adventure! London
  • Tickets to Chessington World of Adventures Resorts Zoo and SEA LIFE centre
  • Overnight stay at one of Chessington World of Adventures Resort’s on site hotels
  • An evening full of entertainment with the characters from Madagascar
  • Animal meet & greets
  • Penguins of Madagascar meet & greet on park
  • DreamWorks character breakfast
  • Full English breakfast with some extra treats
  • Access to Savannah Splash Pool & Gym


Getting to and from Shrek’s Adventure! London couldn’t be easier. Chessington World of Adventures Resort is based just 35 minutes away from London via train, with regular services to London Waterloo where Shrek’s Adventure! London is based. Please note, train tickets are sold separately.

We recommend you arrive at Chessington World of Adventure Resort early on the first day of your visit, drop your bags off and take a short walk to Chessington South Railway Station. The station is just a 10 minute walk from the Resort, or can be reached by taking a short ride on the 71 bus from directly outside.

Shrek's Adventure! London is a short walk from London Waterloo station, situated on the South Bank of the River Thames beside the Coca Cola London Eye. From the station, take exit six for the South Bank and follow the signs for the Coca Cola London Eye.

Your tickets for Shrek’s Adventure will be valid for entry at any time on the day of your visit. The attraction takes around 2 hours to experience, so we recommend heading into London early enough to be back in plenty of time to check in to the hotel, enjoy dinner, and experience a wild evening of hotel entertainment which starts at 6:00pm.


No problem! If you’d rather enjoy a short break based only at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, you can still book a DreamWorks Weekender package excluding Shrek’s Adventure London from just £99 for a family of 4.

You’ll still enjoy all of the Madagascar evening hotel entertainment on the evening you arrive, followed by a full day in the Park the next day where you can experience all the Zoo and SEA LIFE centre at Chessington World of Adventures Resort have to offer!
