CBeebies Land readies for summer with new line-up

Teletubbies and Peter Rabbit attractions join the Alton Towers Resort this season.

CBeebies Land is gearing up for the summer season at Alton Towers Resort, welcoming two new licensed preschool brands to its line-up.

First up, opening on March 23, the new Peter Rabbit: Hippity Hop ride features the famous character and his friends, Benjamin and Lily.

The launch of Peter Rabbit Hippity Hop at Alton Towers marks the third UK attraction opening for the Emmy-award winning preschool Peter Rabbit TV series – a co-production between Silvergate Media, Nickelodeon and Frederick Warne & Co (part of Penguin Random House) – and a further expansion of the live events category for the brand in the UK.

Meanwhile, the Teletubbies will be arriving at CBeebies Land from April.

The characters will be performing a new live show – exclusive to guests at the Alton Towers Resort.

The twice-daily performances in Big Fun Showtime will see children and families join Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po in a musical extravaganza entitled Teletubbies Big Band Live Show.

Guests will also have the chance to meet and greet the characters each day following the performances.

“We are really excited to further extend the fun-packed programme of entertainment and rides in CBeebies Land and bring to life even more TV favourites to captivate the imaginations of children,” said James Walker, marketing director for Alton Towers Resort.

Natasha Spence, live entertainment at BBC Studios, added: “CBeebies Land offers a brilliant opportunity for young children and their families to experience hands-on some of their favourite CBeebies shows and characters.

“The addition of the new Peter Rabbit ride and the exclusive Teletubbies live show is incredibly exciting and adds to what already is a rich portfolio of children’s brands.”
