Happy Glam­pers! A pitch per­fect way to see charms of Chess­ing­ton

And his fam­ily took their Chess­ing­ton World of Ad­ven­tures trip to the next level with the new Ex­plorer Glamp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence

Staines Informer - - TRAVEL -

THRILL-seek­ing fam­i­lies can en­joy a sleep­over with a dif­fer­ence, camp­ing out as part of Ex­plorer Glamp­ing, the latest ex­pe­ri­ence at Chess­ing­ton World of Ad­ven­tures.

It’s a pitch-per­fect way to add some­thing ex­tra to a trip to the theme park, not least as it of­fers ex­clu­sive ac­cess to the Wild Asia sec­tion of the park af­ter all the other vis­i­tors have gone home. This gives you the op­por­tu­nity to ride at­trac­tions such as Ko­bra or Tuk Tuk Tur­moil to your heart’s con­tent.

Glamp­ing – or glam­orous camp­ing – of­fers the ad­ven­ture of an out­door ex­pe­ri­ence but with home com­forts like proper beds and snug du­vets, car­pet­ing and wi-fi.

The Ex­plorer tents at Chess­ing­ton also come fit­ted with wooden flooring and elec­tric­ity, with a dou­ble bed and two sin­gles as stan­dard.

There are four pre­mium tents on site avail­able with a king-size bed, sep­a­rate sec­ond sleep­ing area with three sin­gle beds and ad­di­tional liv­ing space with a ta­ble and chairs.

The fur­nish­ings in­side each tent are all themed to heighten the ‘ex­plorer’ ex­pe­ri­ence, adding to the fun for lit­tle ad­ven­tur­ers. Walk­ways of hes­sian car­pet around the site and a mul­ti­tude of lights mean there’s no drama if a late-night trip to the loo block is re­quired, ei­ther. It’s all de­signed to give a taste of what it would be like to go on a sa­fari – but Sur­rey-style. Af­ter all, you’re here for fun – there’s no sense in rough­ing it. The Ex­plorer camp has a cen­tral com­mu­nity area where kids can use the out­door games, plus a Re­cep­tion tent with tea, cof­fee and friendly staff should you need any­thing else.

The Glamp­ing ex­pe­ri­ence also al­lows you ac­cess to the Chess­ing­ton Re­sort Ho­tel fa­cil­i­ties such as the Sa­van­nah Splash Pool, gym and Ranger Club evening en­ter­tain­ment, although you will need to travel to the ho­tel to track these down.

A hot buf­fet break­fast at the Ex­plorer Out­post restau­rant is in­cluded in the stay, which will pro­vide with you with the nec­es­sary en­ergy for a day at the park. This is par­tic­u­larly im­por­tant as the Ex­plorer Glamp­ing pack­age comes with golden wrist­band Fas­track passes, which will see you jump to the front of the queue on all rides for the first hour of the day.

With more than 40 rides and at­trac­tions in 10 themed lands, a Zoo and Sea Life cen­tre, plus daily live shows and sea­sonal events, Chess­ing­ton of­fers a world of fun and ex­cite­ment for the whole fam­ily to en­joy.
