Alton Towers News, from TowersNerd.com

The Guardian reports that the ageing Old McDonald's Farmyard area will be replaced by a CBeebies-themed land. Tuesday, 15th October, 2013 - The Guardian today reports (http://www.theguardian.com/media/2013/oct/15/bbc-cbeebies-land-alton-towers) that Alton Towers' ageing Old McDonald's Farmyard area will next year be replaced by a new "CBeebies Land".

Although CBeebies does not own the rights to many of the characters that appear on the channel, it is thought that the BBC are currently in negotiations with the respective rights holders to bring them to the area; characters such as Igglepiggle, Upsy Daisy and Postman Pat are all expected to make an appearance at the resort.

Along with the character experiences, the new area is expected to receive new rides and play areas for pre-schoolers to explore, and it is thought that the new area will receive frequent updates to its content after its grand opening.

The new CBeebies area is expected to open at the start of the 2014 season, we will bring you all the latest updates as they happen.
