Chessington Howl'o'ween

Recommended Posts

The Black Forest Haunt isn't going to be a maze, it's going to be on the same level as Haunted Hollow- Live, which was more just a bit of fun, and that's what it's designed for.

So basically, it's going to be the path from the bottom of Transylvania to Black Buccaneer that's received extra attention for Halloween and will have actors walking around :)But it's unlikely the actors will be "scaring" you :)I'm looking forward to it.

That sounds really good, thanks for the reply.

Yeah I wouldn't expect anything like the Fright Nights maze's to be honest.I'm still hoping to try Hocus Pocus Hall: Bewitched when I go on Monday :) Should be good fun! :)

Just got back from Chessington, after a very pleasant evening there.I got there at 4:45, and had a quick ride on the vampire, followed by walking on to the bubbleworks. (Yeah, I know :))After this, we went straight to the rattlesnake and rode on it twice, followed by a quick visit to the sea-life centre.Once we got out of this, it was now dark and the atmosphere electric. The park was looking excellent, with pumpkins, cobwebs, and some great lighting effects. Whilst THORPE PARK tend to stick with a lot of the green lighting, Chessington really went out with red, pinks, blues, greens, strobes and fog effects, making all of the rides look excellent.We then headed back to the Vampire, where we had a ride in the front in the dark. (Bet this is making Keith really jealous!) The ride was brilliantly lit up, and a very enjoyable experiance.After this, there were around 10 minutes left until closing, so back to Rattlesnake to get 4 rides in a row!Overall, a great evening, I really enjoyed it and I thought the park have done excellently on the theming front.Well done Chessington!EDIT- I'm not sure what the Forest Haunt thing is, however I did see several actors walking towards that area wearing Victorian Style Costumes, presumably for this attraction.

I'm really looking forward to seeing the changes made around the park, and the lighting you speak of Gandhi sounds brilliant.Also can't wait to do Dragon's Fury in the dark :)

You're frankly mistaken Vampire is actually Keith's - he's left his own special mark (stain) on that beast and he well rides it more than everyone else

I went yesterday was a great day. Rides had around 20 min queues all day but at one point Vampire had 60 mins. I will do a trip report tomorrow.
