Water flume ride
Jun 7, 1987
Minimum rider height:
Dominating the Mystic East area of Chessington World of Adventures is Dragon Falls, a large log flume water ride. Up to 5 guests can board one of its boats, which float around a circuit that features two drops (the second standing at 45-feet-tall).
As with the park’s other attractions, Dragon Falls features extensive theming. The first drop leads into the mouth of a dragon, while the second passes through a gap between two large Angkor Wat-style stone faces. Look out for a cheeky elephant at the end of the ride, who sprays riders with water.Review:
Nearby Thorpe Park may have the UK’s tallest log flume ride (Loggers Leap), but Chessington’s version offers a far better all-round experience. Though it has been allowed to decline slightly since its heyday, Dragon Falls is both a fun ride and a great visual tour of the Mystic East area.
Expect to get very wet on the ride, and to queue for a long time in the late morning and afternoon on hot days. Our advice is to bring a change of clothes and ride in the morning after you’ve hit the major coasters, Tomb Blaster and Rameses Revenge.Top Tip:
Sit at the back to avoid the worst effects of the splashdowns, although there’s no avoiding getting at least partially soaked.
