Crealy Welcomes Sooty, Sweep and Soo

Crealy has partnered up with the world's longest running children's television programme, The Sooty Show, to open a magical new area at the theme park devoted to the nation's favourite yellow magic bear, Sooty. So Izzy Wizzy Let's Get Busy!

We went along for the press launch of Sooty Land to try out the rides and attractions - but mainly to meet the bear himself.

Sooty Land is a new area for Crealy and there's loads to see and do, including:

  • Four exciting new rides: 'Sooty's' Magic Bus', 'Sweep's Flying Circus', 'Soo's Sweet Balloon Ride' and 'Izzy Wizzy Lets Get Dizzy'
  • 10 new indoor attractions inside the new 'Pier' building including: The South West's first interactive Strike Arena, digi wall ball games, seaside mirror maze, electronic climbing wall, spider climb duo slides, dance tuition studio, giant games room, giant buzz wires
  • Live daily theatre performances of 'The Sooty Show' in the new 'Sooty Show Time' theatre
  • Sooty's Hall of Fame Exhibition, with memorabilia and props from the past 70 years of The Sooty Show
  • The Sooty Shop
  • Sooty's Diner, Sweep's Hot Dogs, Soo's Cafe
  • Outdoor Play Park & wheelchair accessible attractions

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 & 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."

Richard Cadell, presenter & owner of The Sooty Show, said,"This really is such an exciting new chapter for Sooty. As I live close to Exeter myself, I've always admired all that they do at Crealy, so to be opening up Sooty Land in partnership with the team there is a real honour. Live daily theatre performances, Sweep selling hot dogs, amazing rides & Sooty's very own magic shop; there's going to be so much fun to be had for families & fans of Sooty across the country visiting Devon in 2022."

Sweep added,"Squeak, squeak squeak, squeak squeak squeak!"

Sooty was unable to comment.
