Our Trip to Chessington World of Adventure [AD – Press Trip]

I remember visiting Chessington World of Adventure when I was a kid, riding Vampire with my dad when it was probably one of the few “white knuckle” rides in the Park. The park also had a small zoo and a circus! Nowadays, Chessington is a resort and boasts a hotel, a variety of rides for
