Chessington World of Adventures is planning to unveil a new ride later this year.

The theme park has revealed the new Croc Drop will be available for thrill-seekers in 2021.

Riders will be plunged 25m into the giant jaws of Sobek, the ancient Egyptian Crocodile God and projector of the Nile.

To celebrate the launch of the new thrilling ride, the park has released a sneak peek concept image of the tower.

Guests who can handle heights will be invited to "brave the drop to release the curse".

The Croc Drop is the first new ride for the children's theme park since 2013.

Tim Harrison-Jones, Divisional Director at Chessington World of Adventures Resort, said: "We're thrilled to announce our NEW ride, Croc Drop.

"It's going to be a great addition to our Theme Park, which along with our Zoo and Resort Hotels are temporarily closed until it's appropriate to reopen, as we adhere to Government guidance in response to Covid-19.

"The one-of-a-kind drop tower has been over two years in the making and is nearing final construction in our Land, Forbidden Kingdom – just at the sight of it, let alone the thrilling ride itself, guests' jaws will drop!"

Those who are excited to hear about all the updates can visit the Chessington World of Adventures website.

Any rider between 1.2m and 1.3m must be accompanied by an adult over the age of 16.

While those with a minimum height of 1.3m can "drop" alone.

Speaking about when the park is due to open this year, a statement on the website said: "Resort is temporarily closed until it's appropriate to reopen."

No date has been given as to when Chessington will reopen its doors.
