NEW Gangsta Granny Ride & Rooms at Alton Towers

Did you hear the news? The World of David Walliams will arrive at Alton Towers this Spring. A few attractions are planned including a new ride dedicated to everyone's favourite Gangsta.

Gangsta Granny : The Ride 

Gangsta Granny : The Ride is set to open in Spring 2020. There is no set date as of yet but I am hoping it will be when the park re-opens for the season on 21 March.

Gangsta Granny is Walliams' most popular novel and the ride will take you through the story as you board your Royal Carriage and set on a Crown Jewels Tour. Before you know it, you will be caught up in Ben and Granny's adventure and whizz, twist and spin 360 degrees through well-loved scenes from the story.

The ride is set to be a feast for all of the senses and passengers will be able to see, hear and even smell the re-telling of the tale. Using state-of-the-art special effects, 3D projection mapping and animation, the ride packs lots in as you are taken through the London sewers, chased through the streets of London and come face to face with the Queen herself. Sounds fab!

This may change but at time of print, the height restriction for this new ride is 0.9m with children under 1.2m needing to be accompanied by an adult.

The World of  David Walliams Themed Area

  • Pick up a crazy bargain in Raj's shop 
  • Race a Regal thoroughbred on the Royal Carousel 
  • Giggle with delight on Raj's bouncy bottom burp ride 
  • Encounter a few surprises along the way.....
