    We’re heading back down south for the early May Bank Holiday, taking in all three resort theme parks in the area across the weekend. Due to the travel distance, we’ve suggested arriving on the Friday evening at the suggested accommodation. Travelodges at Epsom Central, Leatherhead, Staines and others are all well placed for this trip.

    RSVP here!

    When and where?

    Saturday 4th May
    09.45 Meet at Chessington World Of Adventures, hotel side entrance
    Park Hours 10:00 - 18:00

    Sunday 5th May
    09.45 Meet at Thorpe Park, main entrance
    Park Hours: 10:00 - 18:00

    Monday 6th May
    09.45 Meet at LEGOLAND Windsor, main entrance
    Park Hours: 10:00 - 18:00

    We don't have plans as such, as people are in different hotels. I would imagine at Chessington we may eat at the resort hotel.

    I’m hoping to make it for Chessie and Thorpe, but currently have no plans endure the delights of Legoland.

    Looking forward to it! At least we won't have an enforced bed time following Thorpe Park....

    I will hopefully (is that really the word) be at all 3, uni dependent. Thorpe is a definite. :)

    After a few rounds of "meanwhile, at Chessington" from the AT opening meet I'm now less enthused about the first day of this meet. Also the 2nd as it's Thorpe and they haven't added anything good in ages and unless it's unseasonably quiet will be a bit of a misery.

    All of which means I'm somehow most excited about LLW as it's the only park of the 3 that's added anything of note since my last visit - 2 things in fact, as I'm yet to ride Ninjagq (as the logo seems to spell it).

    Given that in years gone by, people end up rage quitting at least one of the parks on this meet before lunch time, I have to question if it is worth bothering to continue with this event?

    Didn't realise this was so soon! I'll hopefully get down for some of it but unsure which bits yet.

    It’s a miss from me. Just can’t deal with being at any of those parks :(

    We don't do this meet every year (the last TS South was June 2016) and indeed, it has been some number of years before even that since we visited Legoland and in that time, they have added two large dark rides - hence the decision to return.

    The past couple of visits to Chessington have actually been really fun and, although Thorpe is generally unpleasant... well: Stealth.

    :)

    Was it really that long ago‽ Feels like only yesterday me and Hils were planning to join you in the afternoon, only to find out you'd all gone home already. :p

    I'll be there for all 3 days, we'll be joined by @Cheese for Thorpe and LegoBLAND.

    Update: Sadly won't get to do Chessington, will still be there for Thorpe and BLAND.

    I think we only really did 2016 as well because of Paultons' new additions and many of us hadn't visited the park. I really enjoyed it but it's not quite a park that's convenient for a lot of people to visit every year for most of us (although next year there is probably likely).

    I’ll be doing both Chessington and Thorpe for sure, although I’ll likely be doing not much but drinking if my last visits to these parks are anything to go by! (Though I’ve not been to either since 2015)

    LLW I’d like to do, although it’s awkward getting there from London via public transport.
