Surrey theme park and zoo, Chessington World of Adventures Resort has announced its new Rainforest Land will open this March.
Visitors can explore the rainforests of the world by road, taking the wheel on Jungle Rangers; by river, making a splash on mini-log flume, River Rafts, and from the treetop canopy, bouncing up high on Treetop Hoppers, all while spotting creatures including tortoises and capybaras, the world's largest rodent.
Joining 10 other Lands at Chessington, the Rainforest is inspired by the Resort's support of international conservation charity, World Land Trust (WLT), which protects the world's most biologically important and threatened habitats acre-by-acre.
Chessington's Conservation Fund has supported the WLT for the last eight years, saving an area of threatened rainforest in Ecuador more than double the size of the Resort and protecting it annually against poaching, illegal logging, mining and encroaching from farming, by funding 'Keepers of the Wild' (Rangers), to safeguard the area.
With its new Land, Chessington hopes to educate guests, via a fun day out, about the importance of conserving the world's rainforests.
Chessington World of Adventures Resort offers 15 different food and beverage sites, from bar and grill restaurants to ice cream and doughnut kiosks.
