Alton Towers has revealed images of a new ride set to open at the theme park later this year.
The resort’s latest addition is ‘Gangsta Granny’, the ride which brings to life David Walliams’ popular children’s novel.
The ride is the world’s-first multi-sensory ride experience and promises to provide thrills and entertainment for visitors later this summer.
The new experience will see guests join the main characters as they attempt to pull off a more than challenging heist: to steal the Crown Jewels.
The all-new images reveal the journey guests will take from the very moment they step foot on the Royal Carriage through to a sneak peek of the 3D projection-mapping and animation inspired by the artwork of Tony Ross.
The images also show the Gangsta Granny themed bedrooms in the Alton Towers Hotel.
Guests will board a royal carriage as they set off on a remarkable tour of London’s Crown Jewels only to be swept-up in Ben and Granny’s escapade 0 two characters from the novel.
The ride will twist and spin through the sewers on a 360° special effect-laden experience to break into the Crown Jewels vault.
Passengers will see, feel, hear and even smell an electrifying and unique re-telling of the Gangsta Granny story.
Guests will descend with Ben and Granny into the sewers, be chased through the streets of London and even come face to face with the Queen.
A whole area of the Stoke-on-Trent theme park will be transformed into a section inspired by ‘The World of David Walliams’.
“I can’t wait for Gangsta Granny: The Ride to finally come to life and open its doors to families.”
Comedian, actor and best-selling author David Walliams said: “I can’t wait for Gangsta Granny: The Ride to finally come to life and open its doors to families.”
“The latest images really showcase the amazing production behind the ride and it’s a real delight to see my characters brought to life”.
The ride is planned to launch on Monday, May 17.
