Alton Towers Resort in Staffordshire, England has announced a new partnership with comedian, actor, and best-selling author David Walliams OBE, which will see some of his characters brought to life at the resort in spring 2020.
This new project, which will be centralized to the Cloud Cuckoo Land section of the resort, is being kept under wraps for now. But the park has confirmed that its ‘Merlin Magic Making’ creative team has been hard at work with Walliams and HarperCollins Childrens’ Books for the past two years to develop a new headline attraction along with other attractions and characters for the theme park and the resort’s hotels. Construction on this new experience began earlier this year and the opening date is scheduled for 2020.
David Walliams first rose to fame in the early 2000s with the comedy sketch show, “Little Britain.” He began to write children’s books in 2008 and has since published 12 children’s novels, as well as short story collections and picture books.
“It’s a huge thrill for some of my favorite characters to be getting their own attractions at Alton Towers,” said 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.”
