The year of the Penguins arrives at Chessington World of Adventures Resort - 2015 is set to be flipper-tastic!

Dive into the Year of the Penguins at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, where DreamWorks Penguins of Madagascar descend for an exclusive live show, a newly themed penguin ride provides fun and games in the park’s Africa land and Humboldt penguins frolic in a brand new walk-through experience! And that’s not all - guests at the Resort Hotels can even sleep in special DreamWorks Penguins of Madagascar themed bedrooms at the Chessington Safari Hotel as Britain’s Wildest Adventure takes on the penguin challenge.

Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private - the greatest and most hilarious covert birds in global espionage - are set to take on their biggest challenge yet as the brand new Penguins of Madagascar Live! Operation Cheezy Dibbles is launched on the Africa stage. The brand new show features exclusive, never before seen in the UK animatronic characters that sing, dance and talk, helping to bring the secret mission to life. Meet and greets with the Penguins means guests can strike a pose alongside their favourite characters, before joining the agent birds on a top secret operation on a newly themed Penguins of Madagascar ride for young adventurers. 

Chessington’s resident penguins are taking on a mission on their own as they are introduced to some brand new friends in their new, walk-through enclosure. Penguin Cove has been transformed to feature a new, larger viewing area and covered seating where guests can watch interactive feeding sessions and talks. In addition, the brand new walk-through feature allows guests to come up close and personal with our Humboldt penguins in a safe and fun environment.

With too much penguin fun to explore in just one day, the two Chessington Resort hotels are perfect for a short break experience. Families looking for more penguin madness can book one of two exclusive DreamWorks Penguins of Madagascar bedrooms at the Chessington Safari hotel, featuring a penguin treetop hideout for the whole family to enjoy. And the newly opened Chessington Azteca Hotel offers 69 fully themed bedrooms full of mystery and discovery across three floors with spectacular views. With the new Savannah Splash water play zone within the leisure club, two themed restaurants, character breakfasts and evening entertainment for the kids, the Chessington Resort hotels offer a short break beyond your wildest dreams.

Penguins may be the talk of the town, but Chessington has so much more to offer. Continue the family adventure with a spin on KOBRA in the heart of Wild Asia, soar on Vampire in Transylvania, see giraffe, rhinos and flamingos on ZUFARI: Ride into Africa!, and try not to get soaked on Scorpion Express and Rameses Revenge! Meet the lions, tigers and gorillas in the Trail of the Kings, hiss with the snakes in Creepy Caves and get lost beneath the waves in the SEA LIFE centre, before letting your little monkeys play in the AMAZU Treetop Adventure.
