Okay, hands up, I admit it. I was wrong (you might want to read that twice, because you won’t see it often). Having had a conversation with the lovely people at Chessington about how a review may not work because a theme park is really not the best day trip to go on with a toddler, they were really keen to show us just how wrong we were. So yesterday I dragged (kicking and screaming of course, these 6/7/10 year olds are SO unwilling to visit a place with rollercoasters) the family to Chessington for the day. mentally preparing msyelf the whole way for 3 over excited boys, one bored and whiny toddler and frazzled parenting all day.
All I can say is we had a ball! All six of us! So – there you are. I was wonrg. Here’s some pics – review coming on LittleStuff shortly.
Bys driving, girls in back – I loved the adult-sized seats which meant Ella could be accompanied and enjoy, without having to squeeze a parent into a toddler seat!
Up on the monorail – Ella kept saying ‘wow! amazin’!’
Boys on a boat ride. Hating every second. Obviosuly.
My fave rollercoaster, which No.1 son had to go on TWICE to accompany each parent. Oh, the misery.
The log flume – again No.1 son got to go twice. No.2 son threw me a filthy look when I suggested he came on again with me as he wobbled off the first trip with Daddy.
Chessington World of Adventures…check it out for yourselves, oh yes!
