This is a sneak preview of the new underwater world at Chessington World of Adventures.

Azteca, a new section in the theme park’s Sea Life Centre, will be officially unveiled to the public on March 26.

The ocean animals in the centre will be joined by some fearsome new neighbours – eight sharks, which include two new bonnethead sharks.

The new world is based around the story of three adventurers whose plane was struck by lightning and crashed into the Pacific Ocean.

Hours later, they awoke deep beneath the sea, surrounded by a mystical city of temples, statues and unusual creatures.
