“Bing,” which began as a series of books written by Ted Dewan, has transitioned into a popular TV series on BBC’s preschool channel, CBeebies. “Bing” is currently broadcast in more than 130 territories, including on theCartoonito
block on Cartoon Network.
It’s no surprise that such a popular IP would expand into the location-based experience (LBE) space.
One place where Bing has been part of the LBE trend is Alton Towers Resort, a theme park and resort complex in Staffordshire, England, near the village of Alton. The resort marked the opening of its 2022 season with a VIP event on Saturday, March 19. The opening included celebrity guests and influencers who enjoyed an overnight stay at CBeebies Land Hotel and a chance to explore the resort.
Acamar Films recently renewed its long-term partnership with Alton Towers Resort
The new Bing and Flop live show, “Bing’s Day Out at CBeebies Land,” will be performed multiple times daily at Big Fun Show Time in CBeebies Land. Little ones can join Bing and Flop as they get ready to try out the rides and enjoy a fun-packed day.
