Gruffalo Comes To Chessington

Following on from the sightings late in 2016 of the Gruffalo at Chessington World of Adventures Resort. Chessington has announced that a brand new experience is coming to the park. The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure is a complete reimagining of the parks former Bubbleworks ride. Telling the story of Mouse as he undergoes his adventures in the Wild Woods. Guests will float down the river and the world of The Gruffalo will magically unfold in front of their eyes. With plenty of exciting twists and turns along the way.

“We are absolutely delighted to finally reveal the reason behind the Gruffalo’s arrival at Chessington World of Adventures Resort. The story of The Gruffalo has been at the heart of many childhood memories and we’re sure Adventurers young and old will be eager to experience the first-ever Gruffalo ride!”

– Tim Harrison-Jones, Divisional Director

The new attraction replaces the former Bubbleworks ride and see’s a revitalisation of the parks Transylvania area. Transforming the land into the Wild Woods for 2017. Gone are the legendary bubbles and in its place comes something for a new generation of guests to enjoy.

Chessington Buzz will be there to cover the rides official launch. Keep your eyes peeled on our website and social media feeds for more information. We’re excited to take our first rides and cannot wait to see the story unfold. Didn’t you know, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo?
