The World of David Walliams is coming to Alton Towers

Good IP choice really; relevant and contemporary but has sticking power. Of course questions of if the park should be relying on IPs in the first place, but yeah, good choice.

Glad this has finally been confirmed after Walliams accidentally leaked it like 18 months ago and no one really picked up on it: https://www.digitalspy.com/tv/reality-tv/a855888/britains-got-talent-simon-cowell-jokes-reinvented-david-walliams/

"Would you like me to cut you in with the Gangsta Granny Alton Towers ride?" David jokes, Simon responding: "Are you serious? Why do you think you got that?"

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 like David Williams, should be a nice addition. I hope they add a decent Twirling Toadstool replacement. I'm guessing Frog Hopper will be removed since Peter Rabbit is in CBeebies land.

Bring in the flat rides for next year. Plz.
