Re: Chessington WOA - Wild Asia 2010

Postby Morgan » Thu Mar 18, 2010 2:01 am

I'm heading down to Chessington on Sunday for the Annual Pass Holders day. I'm really looking forward to it, I've never been on a Disk'O Coaster before, so Kobra will be a new experiance for me. Wild Asia looks like it's shaping up to be a great addition to the park, the sneaky previews Chessington have been churning out have been looking great, with some nice theming going in there. We'll be doing live coverage from the day at Chessington Nerd Live, we'll be covering Wild Asia as well of the rest of the goings on around the park.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

We had a great day at Chessington yesterday, despite it being stupidly busy. Wild Asia is amazing the theming is very good, on a par with Dark Forest I'd say, Kobra was a real surprise, it looked like it would be a fun ride, but it was deceptively quick and luckily we got quite a long cycle, as after we got off, the ride length was cut down to about half as the queue got bigger, which didn't drop below 75 mins all day.

The rest of the area, looks great the theming is top notch, and wouldn't look out of place in a park like Animal Kingdom, which says a lot for the amount of effort that has gone into it. The new Lorikeet Lagoon is a nice addition, it looks great, but the birds obviously weren't used to people yet, as they weren't really coming to drink the nectar.

If the recent additions at the parks like Dark Forest and Wild Asia are the shape of things to come, we are in for some good times. A big thumbs up from me.

Where is the kobra located??? Because when I went to BeanoLand (RIP :p ) There didn't seem to be any space for the kobra to go. And the Kobra is MASSIVE!!!( as it looks in the pictures) =)

Kobra is located where the Dodgems once sat, along the left side of Wild Asia if you enter from Land of the Dragons. The dodgems are now located where the old Splatapaults were (the balloon battle upcharge attraction).

Yeah was nice meeting you too, I have to say the last thing that I was expecting that day was to bump in to a TPR member. I had so much on my mind that day. The "magical" Elephant tree is AWESOME, I think thats the best thing about Wild Asia personally.

Okay so yesterday marked the opening of the new zoo addition, the Wanyama Village & Reserve. This is a replacement with additions to the previous Creature Features exhibit by the hotel.

Currently the main addition to this are 2 Grevy's Zebra and 4 Scimitar-Horned Oryx. In the next couple of weeks the park is expecting delivery of 2 more Grevy's Zebra.

Anyway on to pictures.
