Lifestyle Review: Halloween at Chessington World of Adventures

16 comments
This week, my best friend Vanessa came to visit me and so we decided to pack in as many adventures as possible. Embracing the Halloween spirit, we made a short trip to Chessington World of Adventures for Howl'o'ween. Here's a little look at our day out at the park...

Now I've never claimed to be an expert of theme parks but I love them. Chessington World of Adventures is pretty much on the doorstep to me and so I spent quite a lot of time there as a child. Of course, the place has changed a lot over the years (RIP Bubbleworks) and given that I had not been there during Halloween season for ages, I felt a visit was long overdue. 

As a family-friendly theme park, if you want actual scares and large coasters, you'd most likely be better off at THORPE PARK'S FRIGHT NIGHTS but Chessington's Howl'o'ween theme still has plenty of All Hallows Eve fun for all ages. Besides their usual attractions such as the zoo, The Vampire and Dragon's Fury, we literally couldn't go anywhere without spotting a pumpkin patch and some rather fun photo ops between rides. Better yet, the best thing about the day was that the park was near-on empty which meant no queues and more ride time. 

If you want to celebrate the build up to Halloween at Chessington, Howl'o'ween and late nights start from the 21st October - 31st October and have exclusive events such as the Curse of the Lost Tomb Maze, Trick or Treat Wood and rides in the dark. Even just walking round the park and all the pumpkins was fun enough for me to be honest. 

Well, that's it for another day out diary. Have you been to Chessington World of Adventures recently? How are you celebrating Halloween? As always, I love reading your comments so please do leave me lots of lovely ones below. 

Until next time,

  1. I haven't been to Chessington for absolutely years! Love how they've dressed it up for Halloween though :) I remember as a kid being obsessed with Bubbleworks so I'm gutted it's now gone! x

    1. I know, I hadn't been in a few years but I spent so much time there when I was a kid. It looks so pretty at Halloween with all the pumpkins :) Such a shame about the Bubbleworks - it just wasn't the same! x

  2. Love the pictures! Love the pumpkin overload! ;) I prefer spoopy to spooky, so this was an absolute charm to read... I've never been to Chessington, but again, all those pumpkins makes it look very charming!

    Love,

    1. Aw thank you hun! Yeah it was honestly a really lovely day out - even just walking round and seeing the pumpkins was fun enough for me haha. The rides were awesome too of course but it's much more of a family orientated theme park :) xx

    1. They do decorate the park for Christmas but there's no late nights sort of thing I don't think. Still, it'll look pretty :) x

  4. I get scared easily so fright nights have always been a bit hit and miss with me - Chessingtons tamer version looks very appealing, even just for the photo opportunities as you said.

    On a little side note - I really love the dress you're wearing x

    1. Yeah if you want Halloween but without the jump scares than Chessington is really nice! It's more Halloween themed but no actors or anything and the park is open until 8pm :) Aw thank you - I've been living in it lately, it's so comfy and warm and I love the pattern xx

  5. Yes, you look great in that outfit, Sophie! I've been critical of black in the past but the stellar accents really work with it :) The Chessington zoo looks appealing with the capybaras and tiger.

  6. This looks like my absolute dream. I am really feeling all kinds of Halloween spirit this year--trying to make my blog and real life reflect that.

    1. Haha I completely agree. It was a really lovely day out. Same here - it's the most wonderful time of the year :) xx

  7. Oh this is the coolest thing! This halloween, I've got a freshman Halloween dance, and I'm really hoping that the DJ will be playing good music (because it's no fun if the DJ doesn't have good taste, right?). I'll also still be trick-or-treating... Some people think I'm too old (15 years old), but I'm 5ft and want to make the most of halloween while I can :) x

  8. Looks like you had so much fun! I remember going here when I was about 15 for fight night with my friend. We had such a laugh till we got stuck on the log ride in the snow! Was awful haha! The wind was so strong! I remember the house as well, so funny!

    1. Oh god haha was that Dragon River? We didn't go on that this time as my friend didn't want to get soaked (for good reason) but everything else was great :) Yeah! The house was new when I was a young teenager I think xx
