Hold on tight kids! The Octonauts ride

CBeebies Land has proven to be a huge success since opening in 2014, welcoming more than a million visitors in its opening year. The £9 million zone grew in 2015 with the opening of the Octonauts Rollercoaster Adventure. The coaster, based on the popular series’ Gup A underwater exploration vessel, lets toddlers pretend to be Barnacles, Kwazii and Peso. This is one the kids will definitely want to ride more than once.
