Alton Towers add CBeebies Land Hotel

Alton Towers has confirmed that the first ever CBeebies Land Hotel will be opening in 2017, designed exclusively for young families and pre-schoolers.

Adjoining the existing Alton Towers Hotel, the all new 76-room hotel will spread over four floors and will have its own dedicated entertainment area, restaurant and reception area.

In addition to 42 standard Cbeebies Bugbies rooms, there will be 26 premium rooms featuring many popular characters from Cbeebies shows such as Something Special, Swashbuckle and more.

All the rooms will have separate sleeping areas for children and parents, include a children’s entertainment wall with interactive play items such as activity tables for drawing and playing, plus toddler friendly features such as bathroom steps to the sink, children’s toilet seats, baby baths and a cot.

Guests will be greeted by a CBeebies plane and a brightly coloured lit rainbow archway. In the whimsical reception area they will be able to play with the CBeebies Bugbies storybook feature with interactive lights and audio. Entertainment will include live shows, story time, character meet and greets and CBeebies games to play.

Gill Riley, Marketing Director at Alton Towers Resort:

"The CBeebies Land Hotel is a hugely exciting new development for us. With an existing range of unique accommodation and the amazing CBeebies Land already here at the resort, combining the two is going to create a fully themed hotel experience where everything is exclusively designed for young families."

Stephen Davies, Director of Live Events and Audio Music BBC Worldwide:

"The new CBeebies Land Hotel is an exciting development, which allows for a fully immersive experience for pre-school children to interact with their favourite CBeebies shows. BBC Worldwide is delighted to continue its successful partnership with Merlin at one of Britain's best loved theme park resorts."

Alton Towers will also be adding new attractions to Cbeebies Land for 2017, including a new ride located in-between the Big Fun Showtime pavilion and the Tree Fu Tom Training Camp. The new children's ride will be similar to the popular Flying Jumbos at Chessington World of Adventures and is likely to be themed to Go Jetters with Vroomsters vehicles.
