A couple of weeks ago, Alton Towers Resort announced that for 2020, the resort will be opening their brand new area, World Of Walliams, in which will feature a variety of attractions, with a headline attraction located within the former Wobble World building. Construction began earlier this year in the former Wobble World building, in order for the team to meet the Spring 2020 opening date, where nearly 100 specialists, from Alton Towers’ creative team and external experts in the latest theme-park technology, are working around the clock to bring this project to life.
The project, centring around the existing Cloud Cuckoo Land area of the Resort, and is currenrlt shrouded in secrecy. But, the theme park has confirmed that its ‘Merlin Magic Making’ creative team has been working with Walliams and HarperCollins Children’s Books for the past two years to develop a ground-breaking, unique headline attraction as well as bringing a number of other attractions and characters to life across the theme park and within the Resort’s hotels.
“It’s a huge thrill for some of my favourite characters to be getting their own attractions at Alton Towers.” said David Walliams. “I can’t wait to experience them for myself, and from all the work that has gone in I think people are going to love it. All will be revealed next year.”
“We are delighted to be able to announce our partnership with David Walliams on what promises to be a hugely exciting addition to Alton Towers Resort in 2020,” said James Walker, Marketing Director at Alton Towers Resort. “David’s books have really captured the imagination of Britain’s children and their families. So it’s a huge honour to be working with David on this fabulous collaboration for 2020, the year in which we celebrate our 40th birthday as the nation’s favourite theme park.”
