 From ‘The World of David Walliams’, Alton Towers Resort today reveals the arrival of Gangsta Granny: The Ride, a ground-breaking brand new family attraction that brings to life David Walliams’ most popular children’s novel. The thrilling new 4D ride experience will see guests join the main characters as they attempt the greatest heist in the history of the world: to steal the Crown Jewels.  On-board a Royal Carriage, guests will set off on a Crown Jewels tour only to be caught up in Ben and Granny’s audacious adventure. The ride will whizz, twist and spin passengers 360° through a series of scenes where they will see, feel, hear and even smell an electrifying and unique re-telling of the Gangsta Granny story. Using state-of-the-art special effects, 3D projection-mapping and animation inspired by the artwork of Tony Ross, 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: but will the madcap scheme succeed? 


Even More Fun.

 The fun doesn’t stop there: a whole area of the theme park will be transformed, inspired by ‘The World of David Walliams’. As well as Gangsta Granny: The Ride, the themed area will feature a host of other rides and attractions where guests can: 

- Pick up a crazy bargain in Raj’s Shop 

- Race on a regal thoroughbred on the Royal Carousel 

- Giggle with delight on Raj’s Bouncy Bottom Burp 

- Encounter other surprises and twists along the way 


Gangsta Granny Rooms

Not only that, fans of David’s books can also enjoy the ultimate sleepover with an overnight stay in one of four Gangsta Granny themed bedrooms in the Alton Towers Hotel.
