TV favourite Denise Van Outen has been taking a look behind-the-scenes at the construction of the hotly anticipated CBeebies Land at Alton Towers.
Opening on 24th May 2014, CBeebies Land is a new five-acre attraction in the heart of the theme park. CBeebies Land will include rides, play areas, live experiences and appearances from some of the most well-known characters on CBeebies.
Along with family favourites Postman Pat, Tree Fu Tom, Mike The Knight and Iggle Piggle, visitors to CBeebies Land will be offered the opportunity to learn through play and engage with the characters and stories as CBeebies comes to life.
Denise said: “This series is all about trading Essex glamour for a construction site. I watch CBeebies with my daughter Betsy all the time and now she will get to meet some of her favourite characters in person when the attraction opens in May. More than that though, it’s a great chance for her to learn as well; I’ve seen an amazing mix of practical education and laugh-out-loud entertainment. I think the CBeebies Land team has literally thought of everything, but best of all, I got to see it first!”
Katherine Duckworth, Head of Consumer Marketing at Alton Towers Resort commented: “Denise has got stuck in with absolutely everything and we’re sure she will offer parents a helpful perspective on the new attraction. Everyone’s getting really excited about the opening of the area – there’s going to be so much to see and do at CBeebies Land, and it’s great that we’re able to give everyone a sneak preview thanks to Denise’s brilliant on-site reporting.”
