Thousands of families are being drawn towards the Alton Towers Resort after the amusement park finally opened the gates to its long-awaited CBeebies Land.
The new TV-themed attraction is a sure designated spot for small children and their families who are fans of the channel’s iconic and memorable characters. Children can join the likes of Charlie and Lola, IgglePiggle, The Zingzillas and Postman Pat in a day filled with activity and learning.
There’s Mr. Tumble’s Something Special Sensory Garden, which lets children experience various plants and herbs with different textures and smells. There’s also Postman Pat’s Parcel Post, where children can help the famous postman save the day by sorting and delivering the mail; Nina’s Science Lab where little ones can learn just how clever their own neurons are, and The Numtums Number-Go-Round, which lets kids take the wheel of their own Numtum car and whizz around as they learn to count.
The Get Set Tree Top Adventure, meanwhile is pleasantly laid back train ride offering plenty of imaginative play, whilst the In The Night Garden Magical Boat Ride will take families on an enchanted journey through the real Night Garden, with guest appearances from the likes of Upsy Daisy and the Tombliboos.
Children are likely to get all the exercise they need with Tree Fu Tom Training Camp, where they are given the chance to become a Tree Fu Master and have their skills put to the test. Big Fun Showtime provides the opportunity to meet some of CBeebies’ biggest stars such as Mike the Knight and the ZingZillas.
Since its opening, the park has been received with glowing reviews from the public and press; mostly thanks to the fact that it is finally a part of Alton Towers that welcomes pre-schoolers. Radio Times commented that the park is “clearly thought out in every sense” and “will offer cheer to youngsters who may have felt that some of the park wasn’t for them”.
Meanwhile The Mirror said, “Everything has been meticulously planned to ensure little ones can have a fantastic day with familiar friends from the TV channel.”
