Probably the most well known ride at Chessington the Vampire is still a UK first roller coaster and is still also an excellent roller coaster.

With unique features like two lift hills and floorless trains Vampire takes you around 3 + minutes of track swinging you from side to side, above and below the trees. The ride is available for little adventurers with just a 1.1 metre height limit, for this height Vampire is one of the more intense coasters around!

Its still considered one of the best themed coasters in the UK and still has a lot to offer, the Vampire is highely regarded as Chessington’s best ride and this will probably stay there for years to come.
