Junior Coaster 143 at Alton Towers

Alton Towers was searching for an anchor attraction for their CBeebies Land. The famous U.K. park asked us to utilize our Junior Coaster system and great theming experience to bring the story of the Octonauts to life.

The resulting roller experience was a fantastic “first big coaster” for kids 90 cm (36 in) and up. What really sold the experience was how our artists created trains that told the story of the entire Octonauts team. From a fiberglass Captain Barnacles in the lead car to individually-themed vehicles, the look of the train sold the concept so that every Ocotonauts lover wanted to jump in and go for a ride.
