Merlin Entertainment: The World of David Walliams Clock.

Merlin Entertainment: The World of David Walliams Clock.
19/08/2021

Good Directions LTD had the honour and absolute pleasure of working alongside the Creative Director of Alton Towers, John Burton to manufacture and produce a 1900mm dial for the newly opened ‘World of David Walliams’ at Alton Towers theme park, bringing the story of ‘Gangsta Granny’ to life.

This enormous clock was designed by John Burton and closely following his design we produced a piece which has swiftly become one of our favourites. Using a variety of materials, cutting-edge technology and techniques, we have produced a clock which will be seen by thousands, if not millions of people for years to come.

The large dial is all in gold, with vinyl being used to create the desired effect. This clock also features raised numerals, which were cut out of foam PVC sheet on our waterjet. We chose to use this PVC as it is lightweight, durable, and best of all waterproof, ensuring a long life and minimal to no decaying over time. The hands were cut out of stainless steel with appropriate counterweights added to the back end of the hands to ensure smooth running for such a large clock. They were then powder coated in black, again to ensure the longevity of said product and to make them highly visible on the clock face.

We have enjoyed creating many clock features over the years for all manner of exciting rides in theme parks across the country and always enjoy rising to the challenge of manufacturing the amazing and wonderful designs we are given to make into a reality.
