Alton Towers Announces Unique Partnership for 2020
What in 'The World of David Walliams' is coming to Alton Towers Resort?
Alton Towers Resort has announced a unique partnership with comedian, actor and best-selling author David Walliams OBE that will see some of his best-loved characters brought to life across the Resort from Spring 2020.
The project, centering around the existing Cloud Cuckoo Land are of the Resort, is 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.
Construction work at the theme park began earlier this year and it's also been revealed that nearly 100 specialists, from Alton Towers' creative team and external experts in the latest theme-park technology, are working flat-out to meet the 2020 opening date.
"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."
