Agreed. Can we get back to actually discussing Chessington now, not this pathetic arguing about who's right and who's wrong and for some reason "bets" between forum members.
Give your *serious* thoughts, opinions and information by all means, but the bragging and off topic posts need to stop please.
Just a couple of questions about the ride that is now Jungle Rangers. As most of you will know Jungle Rangers is a rethemed version of Toadies Crazy Cars. Toadies was themed to The Wind In The Willows. Could I please if Toadies was officially sponsored by The Wind In The Willows. I ask as if the answer is yes the ride was the first at Chessington to be rethemed to an IP.
Have the plans changed? What’s happened to the Jumanji board plaza?
That’s just the public consultation art. The Jumanji board game plaza was added in the planning application and the Miami was moved to the left of the station.
The Miami is described as a ‘children’s ride’ on the plans, but this video of the same model looks like it provides a nice thrill.
it’s not a smashing jump as far as I am aware it is a very small round ride for younger guests.
@Maelstrom could the circular ride on planning application be Rocky Express? Merlin could easily send Rocky to be rethemed,than relocate the ride to Chessy. Back in 2004 Chessington did just this with Samurai and Eclipse (Peaking Heights). These rides under went a refit prior to their respective moves to Thorpe and Chessy. There are many other instances of Merlin transferring rides between their Theme Parks.
I'm sure I remember it being said that both the kids rides in the area were from SBF?No, not sure why you seem obsessed with merlin relocating rocky express. Chessington have a ride not that dissimilar already. More likely a Zamperla Jump around or similar from another company, ie a ride for the youngest guests.
