Scorpion Express Chessington Ride


Reserve & Ride has replaced Fastrack for 2022. It's 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 22 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

  • Mix & Match - 5 Reserve & Rides on 5 of our Wildest attractions
  • Choose from Dragon's Fury, KOBRA, Seastorm, Tomb Blaster, and Vampire
  • Or, you and 4 friends can all ride your favourite - you decide!

Rides are set as 'full' by the Reserve & Ride team when the maximum number of guests using Reserve & Ride or Ride Access Pass waiting to enter an attraction is reached. So that there is not too much of a delay in the physical Reserve & Ride queue lines, online reservations are stopped temporarily to allow the rides team to clear the queue. This should only be for a short while. We suggest trying another of your favourite rides and check back later!

Children under the age of 3 are not required to pay for Reserve & Ride. They may accompany Reserve & Ride users on reserved rides - height, weight and age restricitions permitting.
