We have a reserved number of car parking spaces for parents and toddlers, next to Splash Landing Hotel. These are located in Car Park E, only a short walk form the Monorail Station. These will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Getting to CBeebies Land

You have the option of either walking or catching the monorail to the Theme Park entrance. The monorail station is located next to Splash Landings Hotel and Extraordinary Golf, but if you would prefer to walk, all pathways are suitable for pushchairs.

Approximate walking times from car parks;
Car park A, B, C – 10 -15 minutes
Car park D, E, F, G, H – 18 - 22 minutes
Car park J, K – 25 minutes

As you enter the Theme Park through the turnstiles onto Towers Street, CBeebies Land is at the bottom of the street on the right hand side, just past Corner Coffee.

Top Tip

All of the monorail carriages are big enough to accommodate pushchairs, but the carriages at the far end are slightly bigger, for those with larger pushchairs or double buggies.

Theme Park Facilities

The Theme Park has lots of facilities designed especially with families in mind. Pop into Towers Trading Co. (located on Towers Street near the park entrance) to hire a colourful buggy, a great way to add a bit of fun as you travel around the Theme Park. Prices start from £7 for a single buggy up to £10 for a double buggy.

If you would like to store your valuables we also offer lockers, which are located at the main entrance of the Theme Park. Lockers start from just £1 for an hour or £5 for the whole day.

Head to the Resort Box Office and take advantage of our free ID wrist bands for children. Designed to give you extra peace of mind, simply write your mobile number and name on the band and feel safe in the fact that our team are always on hand if a child strays too far from their parents.


Under 3's go free! But the rest of your family can save over £20 per person when tickets are booked in advance
