Now Mandrill Mayhem, inspired by the monkey that swoops and flips through trees in the wild, is Chessington’s first new rollercoaster since 2004.

It will sweep riders up in the arms of a giant replica mandrill, propelling them forward and back and flipping them – a first for Chessington – before spiralling toward the summit of the 55ft-tall Jaguar Shrine.

It is the centrepiece of the new land, which is inspired by the fantasy-adventure Jumanji movie series and will also feature thrilling new rides Ostrich Stampede and Mamba Strike.

Still being built, the land is due to open in spring, but I got a sneak peek with my kids Jacob, eight, Olive, five, and Ivy, two.
Mandrill Mayhem, wrapped round the mighty Jaguar, is the world’s ONLY Jumanji rollercoaster, in the planet’s FIRST Jumanji-themed land.

Of course, World of Jumanji is not all that Chessington World of Adventures offers.

Fun includes the Gruffalo River Ride Adventure as well as Room on a Broom – A Magical Journey.

There’s the Croc Drop ride, opened in 2021, legendary Vampire rollercoaster – and Canopy Capers, a sky-high play area with rope bridges and a fantasy treehouse.
