The Holiday Inn London Chessington is now open, and has been very popular with guests. The park has been on top form this season, really focussing on their family friendly image. Presentation, staff, operations, and ride reliability have been without fault. With only the Zoo expansion this year, Chessington have had a challenge trying to market something new, so have been running a series of daily challenges for guests who apply online which lets them take part in unusual activities for small incentives.

Thorpe Park have once again had good attendance despite the heavy rain dampening the summer. The infill site next to Samurai looks complete; it is expected to be used for a part of the 2009 coaster. Ride reliability is still an issue, the photo below shows a rather poorly Quantum.
