Custard Pies and Chaos at Chessington World of Adventures

It will be custard pies at dawn on the 20th September 2009 as Chessington World of Adventures celebrates the closure of Beanoland after 10 fabulous years and says goodbye with a giant custard pie fight.

General Manager, David Smith, commented: “We felt it only fitting to celebrate in style with our guests as we say goodbye to Beanoland. We expect the custard pie fight to break all previously held records and to go down in history as the custard pie fight to end all custard pie fights! Once we have cleared up all of the mess, we will be closing Beanoland for the last time to make way for Chessington’s exciting 2010 plans which will be announced in due course.”

Details of Beanoland’s custard pie fight party can be found on www.chessington.com. The custard pie’s will be sold for £1 each and all proceeds will be donated to Merlin’s Magic Wand charity.
