Trip Report: CBeebies Land at Alton Towers Resort

Share This:

Theme Park Investigator took a trip to CBeebies Land at Alton Towers this weekend, and we have some great photos for you today. The land is now a month old, and believe us, it looks great! Don’t go expecting advanced ride systems and mind blowing special effects, but as a much needed children’s sub-land at Alton Towers, it is certainly a worthy addition.

The various CBeebies properties are brought to life beautifully, and the land is full of colour and vibrancy (made all the more noticeable by the dull weather at the Park that day). Classic children’s programmes such as Postman Pat are brought to life alongside newer shows such as Nina and the Neurons and Tree Fu Tom. Characters were everywhere, and the place was packed despite a rather quiet day at the Park.

Alton Towers’ plan to appeal to families seems to be paying off, and again, the land looks stunning. Let’s just hope it stays this way despite the cruel nature of the British weather, which leaves a lot of the Resort looking tired and dirty in places. Check out our photo tour below:

CBeebies Land has a nice little entrance. There was a rope queue nearby, but it was a fairly quiet day so it wasn’t in use.
