Mark Rides on the Planner - The planner, queue timings & the resort’s map are the most important things in the application. Not everyone individual is comfortable with thrill rides, so you can mark only the rides you’re interested in and get done with those first considering the waiting time, before heading to the other activities and areas. I would still recommend to watch the other visitors enjoying those thrill rides as it’s so much fun to see them!

Appropriate Clothing for Rides - Chessington World of Adventures has more than 40 rides from fun and thrill to family rides and lots of other activities for the entire family. Some rides also come with a bit of water splash, so remember to wear appropriate clothing and shoes or maybe keep some spare to change afterwards.
