The World of David Walliams

It's 2020 and the heist of the decade is about to unfold when the characters of David Walliams Come to life at Alton Towers.


In October the park announced that long-rumoured The World of David Walliams would be opening in 2020, drawing from the works of the celebrity author. 

The headline attraction for the area is Gangsta Granny: The Ride, which invites guests to join Ben and his Granny as they visit The Tower of London to pull off the heist of the century.

The new world will be taking over the area formerly known as Cloud Cuckoo Land with several rides receiving makeovers to become part of the world; the Royal Carousel will see the Gallopers receive a regal makeover, whilst the former Frog Hopper will become Raj’s Bouncy Bottom Burp. The ever-present newsagent will also be the proprietor of Raj's Shop, which has taken over the site of the old Wobble World Cafe.
