Alton Towers Resort reveals three new CBeebies Land attractions

Published on: 22nd December 2021

The new additions, to open in spring 2022, include Hey Duggee Big Adventure Badge, Andy’s Adventures Dinosaur Dig and Jo Jo & Gran Gran At Home.

The new attractions join the theme park resort’s CBeebies Land, where children can learn, play and inspire their imaginations, as well as meet some of their favourite CBeebies friends.

Hey Duggee Big Adventure Badge is a new play and adventure land, where kids can climb, slide and bounce and meet Hey Duggee every day and collect their very own Big Adventure Badge. A brand new Hey Duggee live show, The Map Badge, will also be coming to CBeebies Land for fans to enjoy.

Youngsters can let their curiosity run wild in JoJo & Gran Gran At Home, exploring Gran Gran’s house from the hit TV animation show, while dinosaur fans can immerse themselves in prehistoric sights and sounds as they dig and discover in the brand new live interactive show attraction, Andy’s Adventures Dinosaur Dig.

The new attractions form part of a wider re-imagining of the UK’s only CBeebies Land, at Alton Towers Resort, that will also include the brand new CBeebies Bug interactive trail and a new entrance portal.

There will also be a new live show with Bing and Flop in Big Fun Showtime, along with a full schedule of events where children can meet and interact with some of CBeebies’ biggest stars. Furthermore, Bing fans will also be able to enjoy the ultimate sleepover in Bing-themed bedrooms coming to CBeebies Land Hotel at the resort.

CBeebies Land is a dedicated area which is home to live shows, a large range of rides, as well as indoor and outdoor attractions, including Furchester Hotel, Go Jetters, In the Night Garden, Octonauts, Postman Pat and Peter Rabbit. The Land also offers a full programme of live entertainment.

Larry Roles, marketing director for Alton Towers Resort, said: “We are really excited to grow the fun-packed programme of entertainment and attractions in CBeebies Land, bringing to life even more TV favourites for families to enjoy together. We know that, like our existing line-up, these new additions will provide a truly immersive experience for young fans and really captivate their imaginations. We’re sure both parents and children will love experiencing these fun additions and we cannot wait to see them being enjoyed by our guests.”

Natasha Spence, Head of Attractions, Live Entertainment, BBC Studios said:“CBeebies Land offers a brilliant and unique opportunity for young children and their families to experience some of their favourite CBeebies shows and friends as they are brought to life. The additions of the brand-new Hey Duggee play and adventure land and live show, plus Jojo & Gran Gran and Andy’s Adventures attractions, as well as the new Bing live show and themed hotel rooms are incredibly exciting and add to what is already a rich portfolio of children’s brands in this dedicated Land.”
