( Confirmed )

Alton Towers latest new ride will open in Spring 2021.  The ride is based on David Walliams' book and Alton Towers said 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". There will be special effects, and 3D projections and animation so guests are fully immersed into the story. Guests will jump on board a Royal Carriage, setting off on a Crown Jewels tour before being caught up in Ben and Granny's mischievous plans to steal the jewels.

The ride will be located in a new themed area of the park called "The World of David Walliams".  The new land will feature other new or re-themed attractions including Raj's Shop, a Royal Carousel (formerly the Gallopers), and Raj's Bouncy Bottom Burp (formerly the Frog Hopper drop tower).

Guests will be also able to stay in a special Gangsta Granny themed room in the Alton Towers Hotel.
