Events Member Events Family Day 2020 Register today for our ISG Family Day, September 2020 at Chessington World of Adventures, Surrey Have you been to Chessington World of Adventures Resort previously? Adults and children will love the Theme Park, Zoo and Sea Life Centre. The Theme Park includes 10 themed lands AND over 40 rides and attractions. The Zoo gets you face-to-face with over 1,000 exotic animals, including Lions, Tigers, Gorillas, Monkeys, Penguins and Sealions. The Sea Life Centre is packed full of fun exhibitions, including interactive rock pools, daily talks and feeding sessions as well as a breathtaking walkthrough ocean tunnel. New for 2020 is Chessington World of Adventures Resort NEW Land, the Rainforest, featuring three rides! Perfect for families with kids in search of their first wild adventure, explore the rainforests of the world by road, taking the wheel on Jungle Rangers; by river, making a splash on mini-log flume, River Rafts, and from the treetop canopy, bouncing up high on Treetop Hoppers, all while spotting creatures including tortoises and capybaras, the world’s largest rodent. There is so much to enjoy at the resort, and it’s a wonderful day out for children and adults alike. Visit www.chessington.com for more information. Ride Access Passes are reserved for adventurers who do not understand the concept of queuing; have difficulties with everyday social interaction; have a limited capacity to follow instruction or to understand others’ emotional feelings or expressions, and may become agitated or distressed having to wait for extended periods of time; and permanently non-ambulant guests. Having a registered disability does not mean you automatically receive a Ride Access Pass. For full details and how to apply please visit www.chessington.com/plan/disabled-guide-for-chessington.aspx and select the blue “Ride Access Pass” tab. The ISG are unable to arrange these passes for you. Just as important at our ISG events is the opportunity for you to meet and talk with other ichthyosis families. New parents and children who have not been to an ISG event before will soon make friends with our other families, and also with the ISG Board – most are sufferers or ‘ichthyparents’ themselves. We will be available throughout the day to answer any questions you might have. As with many of our events a number of companies will be attending with their skin care products for you to take away and to try. We will have a private function suite adjoining the park, and car park area. It is here that refreshments will be available at the beginning of the day followed by a hot meal at the nearby onsite restaurant. There will be an animal meet and greet where you will be able to get up close to some animals. The function suite limits our capacity and therefore our numbers are restricted this year so book your places as soon as possible. The deadline for registration is 15th August 2020. Registration is only £10 per adult and £5 per child (aged 4-16 years, under 4’s go free but must be registered), and this includes car parking, refreshments, lunch and all your entrance tickets to the park!
