There has been rumours for a while, but it’s now official, the World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers next season. Located in Cloud Cuckoo Land, the area will include a new ride (believed to be in the old Wobble World building) and a variety of other smaller attractions.
Interestingly, I seem to remember that people did pick up on it at the time, but then it fell by the wayside a little and people went instead to other rumours like Paddington Bear.
Should be a really good area; I agree that it's a very good choice of IP, and I think it's nice to see this area of the park get some love! The next question is; I wonder what book each ride will be themed to?
I know his children’s books are popular so seems a good fit for that area. That area is screaming out for a decent dark ride though and not sure whatever’s going in the wobble world building will cut it. We shall see.
