2020 is the 40th birthday of Alton Towers and to celebrate, the much-loved theme park has announced a series of special events. The 40th anniversary party commences with the opening of Gangsta Granny: The Ride.
The innovative 4D ride experience is centred on David Walliams’ children’s book ‘Gangsta Granny.’ The attraction features 3D projection mapping, state-of-the-art special effects, and animation inspired by the work of British children’s books illustrator, Tony Ross.
Gangsta Granny: The Ride is part of The World of David Walliams, a new zone at Alton Towers, featuring a number of rides and attractions, including Raj’s Bouncy Bottom Burp, Raj’s Shop and the Royal Carousel.
Gangsta Granny: The Ride is scheduled to open at The World of David Walliams on March 21, 2020.
The May half-term will see a Gangsta Granny-themed ‘Half Term Heist’ take place at the theme park, where visitors can take part in different challenges, activities and competitions.
