One the surface, Monkey Swinger appears to be a classic “Chair-O-Plane” or “Wave Swinger” attraction. Guests sit in seats that are suspended by chains from a central tower, and rotate around it in a gentle circle. The difference at Chessington, though, is that Monkey Swinger is surrounded by water jets that can leave riders soaked.

The ride originally opened in 2000 as Billy’s Whizzer, but was updated to its current theme in 2010 when Wild Asia replaced Beanoland.
