A runaway train with a sting in its tail!
Are you a brave adventurer? Come to Chessington World of Adventures Resort and venture into Scorpion Valley to experience an amazing new theme park ride experience for all the family!
Scorpion Express* had a brand new ride experience for 2014 set within Mexicana's Scorpion Valley - a land of sweeping sands and gold mines. As you head towards the town you'll soon see signs that all is not quite as it once was and it will soon become clear that where locals once lived, the scorpions have taken control. Adventurers must then board the old train of the Scorpion Express as it's the only way to cross the ruins of the gold mines in this abandoned town!
Scorpion Express is a fun ride for all the family and brave young adventurers can experience their first rollercoaster thrill. Watch out for surprises at every turn including fire and water effects, as with unstable mines guarded by the giant Scorpion anything could happen – try not to get too close!
