We're looking for 10 Mumsnetters and their DCs to attend a special day out at Chessington World of Adventures Resort (tickets alone worth up to £150) and tell us all about it.

Here's what Chessington say: "We're very excited to invite Mumsnetters and their families to experience all that Chessington World of Adventures Resort has to offer on this VIP day including meeting the Octonauts who recently arrived here at Chessington! The day will begin with an exclusive brunch in the Resort Hotel before heading on to the park to meet the Octonauts then all the families are free to enjoy the rest of the day on the park."

The event will take place on Sunday 30th June at Chessington World of Adventures Resort starting in the Resort Hotel. Unfortunately travel is not included however there will be free parking in the Resort Hotel car park for those who decide to drive.

The day will include a range of exciting activities for your DCs to enjoy, including:

- An exclusive brunch to start the day

- Animal meet & greets in the Resort Hotel

- Refreshments available throughout the day in the Resort Hotel exclusively for MNers and families

- Meet & greet Captain Barnacles and Kwazii from Octonauts

- An opportunity to take part in the Octonauts Quiz Trail in Chessington's SEA LIFE centre

- Tickets for the whole family to explore Chessington World of Adventures Resort for the rest of the day!

Those of you selected will be required to come back to a thread on Mumsnet after your day to share your experiences and also add a review to the reviews area on MN here.

We'd also love it if you could take a few photos of your day and upload them to the feedback thread. Photos may be used by Chessington World of Adventures Resort on Facebook, their website and possibly on other marketing material.

Of course Chessington World of Adventures Resort is a day out for all the family but for this event they are particularly interested in showcasing their rides and attractions to the under 5s. So, if you have at least one child under 5 and would like to have a great family day out at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, please sign up here.
Please note a maximum of 2 adults (aged 12 years and over) and 2 children per family can attend the day.

We'll be in touch with those selected on 19th June.

Thanks and good luck!

Oh bum, I've just realised I put my home phone number and we're going to be away for the day on the 19th. Can I PM someone my mobile number?

I really hope we're picked, my DDs would be so excited to meet Kwazii and Captain Barnacles.

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Jun-13 12:13:24

EauRouge PM me and I'll update for you

MTBMummy Mon 10-Jun-13 12:51:42

Hi the first travel option for question 5 is blank - is that supposed to be By car?

HormonalHousewife Mon 10-Jun-13 12:54:45

DS is a massive Octanauts fan, and has met Peso and another one at the aquarium recently. He'd LUrve to go but he is 6 sad

Yikes having problems with Kindle Fire so I've inadvertently sent the form as if completed when I haven't done any of the tick-box questions. Help Katie!

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Jun-13 14:12:17

gazzalw I'll need to delete your response so you can fill it in again. I'll PM you with your pick me answer so you don't have to rewrite!

Think I just entered however the send message went all strange on me; anyone at HQ able to confirm I've successfully entered? Many thanks

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 10-Jun-13 15:54:38

chestnut100 we have your application, thank you.

Nerfmother Mon 10-Jun-13 16:13:41

Delete mine! Just realised ds is five not under five!

LegoAcupuncture Mon 10-Jun-13 16:32:01

Too far sad

Kveta Mon 10-Jun-13 16:39:26

done, DS would LOVE this (and I think DD would like it too, but at 1 year old, she is unlikely to be able to tell us so!)

MinnieBar Mon 10-Jun-13 16:56:53

Only 2 DCs?! Not fair <stamps feet>

nuclear family fascists wink

Glitterfairys Mon 10-Jun-13 17:13:28

What a fantastic day out this would be.My boys would love it grin

gazzalw Mon 10-Jun-13 17:37:15

Oh blush...... what a twit I am. Just realised that you have to have an under-five year old to apply. DD still loves the Octonauts but she's 7 hmm. A pity because Chessington is one of those activities that appeals to siblings across different age-bands....

I think you might have to delete my application, KatieB [sorry]...

FuckThisShit Mon 10-Jun-13 17:39:04

Oooh, would love this. One small (4) and one of the bigger ones (16) - what a fab day. Fingers crossed...

Badvoc Mon 10-Jun-13 17:42:22

Omg! Ds2 would love this! He is octonauts mad!

Badvoc Mon 10-Jun-13 17:44:37

Hope I have filled it on ok?

smokinaces Mon 10-Jun-13 18:33:30

Ah man we are going there THE NEXT DAY!!!!

COCKadoodledooo Mon 10-Jun-13 18:37:39

Oh wowsers! Done! Thanks for the opportunity.

Both dc (9 and 3) confirmed Octonauts addicts and would love this grin

SchroSawMargeryDaw Mon 10-Jun-13 19:11:28


I was looking at the website today, it looks amazing.

If picked I would be travelling and would pay to stay in the hotel. smile

maxybrown Mon 10-Jun-13 19:43:52

Boooo DS is 5 sad

TeaMakesItAllPossible Mon 10-Jun-13 19:51:01

Done. Great competition .... I love the Octonauts and so does DS4. And the fun I would have trying to decide which of his older brothers to take! wink

CharlotteBronteSaurus Mon 10-Jun-13 19:52:10

DH and DD1 have convinced me that the drive from Manchester might just be worth it in this case...

maxybrown Mon 10-Jun-13 20:08:57

we only have one child and his only friend is 5 too, darn!
