There are pros and cons to CBeebies Land.
Being a large land, it holds multiple modern "kiddie" attractions, which means that Merlin won't make the mistake of adding more "Kiddie" rides in other areas of the park (areas in which we could have some thrilling flats).
It holds multiple recognisable characters, making the kids more likely to want to ride the attractions. To a 3-year-old, Justin Fletcher is a lot more appealing than a farmer, meaning they are more likely to ride these rides, meaning the older people in the group have less time to ride the coasters, hopefully resulting in a slight drop in coaster queues.
In addition to this, I could not see Old Macdonald's Farmyard lasting another 10 years, but I can see CBeebies Land lasting 10 years (if the contract is kept).
But can CBeebies Land last for 10 years? Some characters will go out of date. For example, 10 years ago the 2nd biggest (behind the Tweenies) CBeebies show was The Fimbles. I challenge you to find any 3-year-old and ask them who The Fimbles are. Will we not get the same problems?
Also, WHY WHY WHY do that to Squirrel Nutty. It was one of the most magical attractions, as was the whole of the farmyard, and it seems that it has all been replaced by "modern" magic. And we all know that modern magic is nowhere near as good as Tussauds magic ...
Overall, I think that CBeebies Land was a good investment in the short term, but a terrible idea for the long term.
