As you may have seen on SouthParks Facebook, plans have been submitted for a new exit gift shop at the Explorer Gate, as well as a ‘Greenscreen Hut’ and 6 timber cabins, whose locations are both unconfirmed. Below are the elevations for the gift shop.

Although it's a shop, sounds good!

Just FYI, Vampire and Bubbleworks will be closed for AP weekend. Africa will also not be open until 12pm, with the first show at 2pm.

Thanks Paul, my emails only come through intermittently so I've obviously missed this one!

That's impressive even with Bubbleworks & The Vampire closed. Planning on going on the Sunday for a couple of hours.

The full park map for 2015 is now available on Chessington's website. The new map sees the addition of the new Penguin Bay area, and the new Penguins of Madagascar show.

Dragon's Fury now has a SRQ, which is a very good move from the park, as cars are often sent round in 2s/3s.

I have nothing against people who collect these but i personally don't like them. I find that they are too big and prefer the smaller pin badges. There is someone (VIP pass holder) who has a massive collection of these pop badges, so they must popular. Good luck with expanding your collection.

I guess the reason they are so big is to make them safe for children. No sharp points and nothing small enough to swallow :-)
