Captain Barnacles and the Octonauts are set to join CBeebies Land as it has been confirmed that Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure will be joining the rides and attractions from 21st March 2015.

Located on the former site of the Beastie, the new attraction will see young guests exploring the Octopod – discovering fascinating sea creatures and learning about the Octonauts’ exciting missions, before boarding the GUP convoy to dive in and explore the Octonauts’ underwater world. With Captain Barnacles in the driving seat the coaster will navigate a range of interactive theming elements – from helping Peso rescue a baby whale, to finding intriguing creatures on the sea floor.

This won’t be the first time Merlin have used the Octonauts theme, with characters from the popular CBeebies show regularly appearing at a number of other attractions – from Sealife Centres across the country and the National Seal Sanctuary in Cornwall, to Chessington World of Adventures Resort. As with all the other attractions featured in CBeebies Land there will be a focus on learning as well as fun, with Octonauts promoting a message of conservation and helping children learn about the underwater world the Octonauts explore.

Construction of the new attraction is already well underway with the track and supports already on site and in place, indicating that the attraction is on schedule for its anticipated opening date at the start of the 2015 season
