"As a result of the incident, our capacity on park for Festive Zoo days has been severely reduced.  Unfortunately this means that the Chessington World of Adventures Resort will be closed up to and including 24th December for guests visiting the park for the day.

"This includes those with pre-booked tickets, walk up guests and Merlin Annual Pass Holders not staying at the Hotel. We would like to sincerely apologise for the disappointment this has caused."
