NEW Gruffalo River Ride & Gruffalo Themed Rooms Coming To Chessington

7 January 2017
The Gruffalo Comes To Chessington!

Gruffalo fans have somewhere new that they have to visit this summer, as The Gruffalo is coming to Chessington World Of Adventures! There is a brand new Gruffalo River Ride, and new Gruffalo themed rooms at the hotel to stay in! How amazing does that sound?

The new Gruffalo River Ride will be the first in the world to feature Julia Donaldson's beloved characters, and it opens in March 2017. You get to join Mouse on a magical riverboat journey through the deep dark wood with twists and turns as you go through the magical wood.

The new fully themed Gruffalo bedrooms are available to book now at the Chessington Safari Hotel, and there are plenty of special offers when you stay like a second day in the park for free and early access to the rides.

The new Gruffalo ride and rooms are bound to be a huge hit with visitors, so if you want to get one of those amazing bedrooms to stay in early booking is advised.

I would love to take the kids, and if we lived a little closer I would definitely be making a trip to Chessington. Will you be hopping on the Gruffalo River Ride this summer?
