Vampire is an Arrow suspended swinging roller coaster, and one of Chessington World of Adventure’s flagship rides. It is designed to evoke the experience of flying like a vampire bat, and starts in a heavily-themed station complete with a creepy animatronic organist.

The coaster hits a maximum height of 70 feet and a top speed of 45 miles per hour as its weaves around its circuit, which includes two lift hills. Much of the ride takes place in a wooded area, although a short section sees riders soaring over the rest of the Transylvania area.

Originally, the ride featured bat-themed trains suspended from the track, but following numerous maintenance issues these were replaced in 2001 by new Vekoma-built floorless trains.
