Height Restrictions

Height restrictions at Chessington World of Adventures Resort are a set of rules in place to protect guests. The safety of all guests who visit the park is the top priority. These restrictions are put in place for safety reasons. Ride & Attraction height restrictions are mostly set by the ride’s specific manufacturers to ensure a safe fit in the ride’s various seats.

In some cases, guests may be too tall to visit or ride at certain attractions due to safety.  This could also be due to how the restraints secure guests. Also, in other situations, guests under a certain height may still ride if accompanied by another guest over 16. These rules are in place to ensure a responsible person is there should ride’s need to be evacuated or unloaded.

Our handy list below will help you to plan out your visit to Chessington. Allowing you to map out what you can and cannot ride. Preparing your children ahead of time to avoid disappointment and to aid in simply planning ahead. It is also important to note that guest height is measured wearing footwear. So if your little one is just under the height, those bigger heals can make the difference.
