Family & Days Out

Fun at CBeebies Land

For Boo’s birthday treat last week, she asked to return to CBeebies Land. She does love theme parks, so we tend to visit one on her birthday – we went to Alton Towers and Splash Landings last year, though that was before CBeebies Land opened. We had been there before, a week after it opened back in May, and we failed to get on a single ride, so we wanted to return and actually go on a few things! And phew, it wasn’t as busy, so we had a lovely day there. We spent the whole time in CBeebies Land, rather than wandering into Alton Towers, which I think made a difference as we remained committed to queuing if need be.

We strolled around Mr Tumble’s Sensory Garden, looking in his spotty bags…

The ride that we had to wait the longest time for was the In The Night Garden Boat Ride, but to be honest, it didn’t feel like 40 minutes, as there were various activities dotted throughout the queue that kept the kids’ attentions, and they are pretty good with things like this. As Little Man’s a fan of this show, he’d been getting excited for days about seeing his favourite, Makka Pakka, so there was no question of not queuing!

He loved it.

We then mooched about in Charlie and Lola’s house, as we did last time, and Daddy and Boo went off into Justin’s House Pie-O-Matic Factory. In between rides, we were also nipping to the Big Showtime, where we did catch the Zingzillas. Since then, Little Man has asked to watch them on TV every single day, and he’s never been interested before!

Tree Fu Tom’s Training Camp was a big hit again, and Boo was proud of herself as she climbed right the way to the top of the rope climbing frame – it was pretty high, I was silently panicking! They loved it in there and had to be dragged out in the end!

My favourite part was seeing them with the characters, both for different reasons. For Boo, it was something of an achievement, as she’s always shied away from people dressed up like this, and wouldn’t go with Little Man when he queued up to do so, but for some reason, she felt comfortable to wait in line and be photographed with Mike the Knight and Evie..

And Little Man got to meet some of his all-time favourites, showed no hesitancy in greeting them, just strolling straight up to them for kisses!

We rounded off the day with a Special Delivery, with the pair of them driving us in Postman Pat’s van, while we had a welcome rest in the back!

It was a much more relaxed visit than our last one there, as you’d expect as the season winds down. It felt magical, we all enjoyed it, and the children were full of smiles and yawns as we left.
