Project Anchor speeds ahead

Project Anchor speeds ahead following planning approval earlier this week.

Chessington has wasted no time getting to work on the new 2022 rides. With two attractions coming to the park’s new, Shipwreck Coast land. Work on installing the foundations for these new rides is coming along well.

Time flies at Chessington, and apparently, so do the construction crews! Work has picked up and the foundations for Bobbing Barrels are taking shape. With the wooden framework for the rides, concrete troughs started to be built. This framework will form a mould when the construction team pour the concrete base.

The foundations and what look to be utilities are in place for Trawler Trouble. Work has also been finished on trimming and widening part of the path in the area.

Seastorm is still sadly in pieces, with not much progress being made. The queue line for the ride has however been completely reworked. With a new entranceway taking shape within Shipwreck Coast. The queue will now form part of the area, rather than being a part of Adventure Point. It’s a good change that will help bring the new land together.

Work is progressing well and we cannot wait to see the new land take shape. As Project Anchor speeds ahead and opens two new attractions for 2022. There is also the long-awaited arrival of Project Amazon in 2023 progressing well. Chessington is rapidly investing in new rides.
