Explorer Gate Entrance Refurbishment Makes Huge Progress
Chessington World Of Adventures
Sunday 15th May 2022
3 months into the theme park season and work on the Explorer Gate refurbishment and makeover is continuing. A new entrance feature into the entrance plaza has recently been fitted, with a huge new truck and the Rhino topiary installed next to it. This fresh take on this entrance makes for a great first impression of the park. With Mardi Grrra starting in a few weeks, the statues in the area have been given a makeover with some new signs added, along with some giant beads hanging from their necks.
Around the plaza, speakers have been installed, playing background music and new fences have been installed lining the area. Could these huge green fences be removed over the next few weeks? With the Explorer Gate entrance being on the side of an active construction site (Project Amazon), we expect that if the green walls do come down, a new tarp would be installed onto it to stop dust and for safety purposes.
No work seems to have started yet on the new bag check area or the canopy, but we're sure everything will be done and finished ready for the busy summer season.
