The Sun are currently running a promotion where you can get bargain tickets for lots of super days out at Merlin attractions, including Chessington World of Adventures, by signing up to Sun+ online. The first month is only £1 and the offer enables you to get tickets worth nearly £100 for under a tenner so is well worth having a look at!

To help celebrate this offer, last weekend we took the kids on a family day out to Chessington World of Adventures courtesy of the Sun. It’s been a while since we had been there, in fact the last time we went was pre-kids so it was great to take them along and see what they made of it.

My boys are all under 1.4 meters as they are aged 5 and under but there was still plenty for them to do at Chessington. They went on some of rides including the Scorpion Express which is new for 2014. They also enjoyed the Seastorm, the Black Bucaneers and the Tiny Truckers.

 Even for my littlest boy Mr R, who is 2 and half, there was plenty to entertain him as he loves animals so the zoo and aquarium kept him happy and made a nice break from thrill seeking.

 The Dragons Playhouse soft play area, and the Madagascar live show are also great entertainment for littler children who are visiting the park.

 The food in Chessington World of Adventures is pretty reasonable. We ate in the pizza and pasta buffet which is £5 per child and £10 per adult for whatever you want from the buffet, and as many drinks as you like.

The Sun also have a fun social campaign at the moment which I’m sure most of us can relate to, all about the hilariously awful things we have done to our kids.

My #sunfession is that I have tried girls clothes on to my kids as babies just to see how cute they would look! Sorry boys!!

To support the #Sunfession campaign, I also have £250 to give away to one lovely In The Playroom reader to spend at Chessington. All you need to do is log in to Twitter or Instagram account and retell a hilarious awful thing you have done to your kids.  Don’t forget to include #Sunfession AND #InThePlayroom.
