CBeebies Land opened at Alton Towers resort on 24th May and it include rides, immersive play areas, live experiences and character appearances and will be a fun and safe environment for preschoolers to play and learn!
We were so fortunate to be invited to visit them last week and we had a fantastic time! It has been a while since we have been there. The new 5 acre area of CBeebies Land features some of the UK’s best-loved characters and shows such as Something Special, In the Night Garden, Tree Fu Tom and Postman Pat.
Both of my children were so excited and the first thing that caught their eyes was the Go Set Go Tree Top Adventure. It is located on the left hand side of CBeebies Land. The ride lasts about 3 minutes 40 seconds that does a nice circuit over CBeebies Land. Each ride only allows 1-3 passengers.
If you would like to see how the ride looks, check out this video.
As you can imagine, this is a new world and it was very busy with young children and families. For some of the rides, we had to queue for over 40 minutes or more. So do pack snacks and drinks! Mr C had a little snack trying out one of the three new Sensations Popcorns: Sweet Cinnamon & Salt; Sweet Indian Spices and Thai Sweet Chilli. I particularly like the Sweet Indian Spices as they tasted of authentic spices and has a delicious sweet flavour to them. Both of my children enjoyed the Sweet Cinnamon & Salt! While Mr C liked the Thai Sweet Chilli. There flavours to suit everyone! I would buy them again if I see them! It gives popcorn a new lease of life!
Next, we went over to Postman Pat’s Parcel Post ride. Both children couldn’t wait to become part of The Special Delivery Service. Through problem solving and interaction, the attraction lets children take the controls of Postman Pat’s van on his delivery route through Greendale, picking the right parcels to deliver to the village’s favourite residents as they drive along.
We then went over to look at Nina’s science lab to have a peek to check out what interesting things we can find out. It is a rather small room but hopefully they will extend it in the near future.
In Charlie & Lola’s Moonsquirters and Green Drops, the décor is mocked up in the style of the show. There is a mini climbing frame and hidden tunnels!
There is plenty more to explore like the Sensory garden, Justin’s house Pie-O-Matic factory, Numtums Number-Go-Round, Mr. Bloom’s allotment, Big Fun show time and In the Night Garden magical boat ride.
At the far end, there is the Tree Fu Tom training camp where there are a range of outdoor climbing frames. Both children were having so much fun playing which gave the adults a rest!
Thanks to Alton Tower and Markettiers4dc for giving us this opportunity to explore CBeebies Land! There are so many things to explore around Alton Towers, plenty of picnic areas and lots of fun activities for all ages! There is a car park fee of £6 and a monorail located around car park A area.
