Welcome back!

Please note the very important changes that will affect all guests:

  •  All Guests and Members must pre-book online so we can manage capacity. You will no longer be able to buy tickets at the entrance.
  • Guests are asked to choose when they would like to arrive. Your admission ticket is for a fun-filled four hour stay.  Although, if it's a quiet day, you may not be asked to leave.
  • We will not be accepting cash on site. Contactless Card payments only.

Kind regards

What our customers say...

We found Hobbledown on Google after queuing to get in to Chessington car park for 30 minutes. And what a relief we did! This place is uniquely fantastic. The perfect place for our 4yr old and 7yr old. All active, no queuing and a whole day of great fun. Exactly what we wanted for the boys.
