Scorpion Express Chessington Ride


Reserve & Ride is a system that queues for you, leaving you more time to explore our ROARsome park, see the animals and enjoy the entertainment!

Using your smartphone, Reserve & Ride allows you to wait the queue time for a ride virtually, freeing you up to visit other rides, shops, restaurants and more while you're waiting for your turn. 

There are three tiers of Reserve & Ride - the higher the level, the less time you have to wait between making a reservation and riding the ride.

There are loads of benefits to Reserve & Ride:

  • Get the most out of your day and spend less time in queue lines
  • Choose from up to 26 attractions
  • Simple, easy to use system accessed right through your smartphone


  • Offers the same wait as the physical queue
  • Reserve your space in the queue line
  • Enjoy the park's other attractions while you virtually wait


  • Reduce your virtual wait by 50%
  • Enjoy the park's other attractions while you virtually wait


  • Our fastest ride access
  • Minimal waiting time, maximum time to explore
  • Plus exclusive access to Mamba Strike, Mandrill Mayhem, Ostrich Stampede, and Rattlesnake


Reserve & Ride is a service that virtually queues for you, leaving you with more time to explore the Resort! Using your mobile phone, enjoy one of our three service levels: Regular, Express, or Ultimate, and choose from up to 26 of our attractions.

If you require assistance at any time with your Reserve & Ride, visit The Hub in Mexicana or Guest Help & Information by the Mane Stage.

Attractions are set to ‘full’ by the Reserve & Ride team when the maximum number of guests using Reserve & Ride and/or Ride Access Pass waiting to enter an attraction is reached. To avoid significant delays in the physical queue lines, online reservations are temporarily stopped to allow time for the Rides & Attractions team to clear the queue. This is normally only for a short while. Please try reserving another one of your favourite attractions and check back later!
