Adventure Park in London

If you were to choose one adventure park, rides ,etc..for a trip the first week of October (fewer water events??) for three kids 7, 10, and 12...what would it be? Of course accessibility from London is key. Thorpe? Chessington? Legoland??? These kids have never done Disney but they loved Efteling in Holland.

Legoland is for much smaller children, probably your two oldest wouldnt be that impressed. Of the other two, I think Chessington is better overall, especially as Thorpe park does seem to have a lot of water rides. Dont know about accessibility from london , check national rail http://nationalrail.co.uk/index.html or the parks web sites, though ISTR the last time my kids went to Thorpe they had to hang around for a bus to the train station whereas I *think* you can walk direct from Chessington train station.

Thorpe Park is probably for older children and Legoland for babies. I agree Chessington would be best. The tickets are quite expensive, check the website for special offers.

There are usually lots of 2 for 1 offers around for these parks - they often don't run in the school holidays, but with the current weather they may well be trying to promote a bit more. My daughter's friend went there recently during a rare bit of clearish weather and it was very uncrowded.

Thorpe Park better for older teenagers so would suggest Chessington Park. check out their website for travel directions; it is not too far out of London.

With regards to tickets, look at www.lastminute.com for cheap tickets.
