Inside Sooty Land where the long-running TV show has inspired four new theme park rides – and it's open now


FANS OF The Sooty Show can now enjoy theme park rides dedicated to the beloved, long-running children’s TV series.

The Crealy Theme Park & Resort in Devon has opened a brand new area called Sooty Land, which is devoted entirely to the magical yellow bear as well his other furry pals – puppy Sweep and panda Soo.

Families can enjoy daily theatre performances of ‘The Sooty Show’ in the new ‘Sooty Show Time’ outdoor theatre. 

There will also be four new rides – including ‘Sooty’s Magic Bus’, ‘Sweep’s Flying Circus’, ‘Soo’s Sweet Balloon Ride’ and ‘Izzy Wizzy Let’s Get Dizzy’.

What’s more, even if it’s raining this summer, visitors can make the most of ten new indoor attractions in the ‘Pier’ building.

They can choose between Soo’s music house, Sooty’s TV studio, Sooty’s Hall of Fame Exhibition – which will feature memorabilia and props from the past 70 years of The Sooty Show – Sooty’s Magic and Souvenir Shop, Sooty’s Diner, Sweep’s Hot Dogs and Soo’s Tea Room.

Crealy Theme Park & Resort – who have teamed up with the long-running TV show, which first aired in 1955, to create Sooty Land – have been voted as the best day out in Devon for ten years running.

Josh Haywood, general manager at Crealy Theme Park & Resort, said: “Crealy Theme Park & Resort has long prided itself on being a family attraction that caters for all generations. 

“Sooty, Sweep and Soo have been entertaining children, parents and grandparents across the country for over 70 years, and so we couldn’t be more thrilled to be partnering with the gang on our new Sooty Land."
