Just in case you missed it, Garmendale Engineering’s latest Dark Ride opens this month to the public and we cannot be more excited. The wait is finally over, after a year-long delay Gangsta Granny at Alton Towers Resort opens it’s doors. We can’t wait for guests to experience our exciting, family-friendly ride system based around David Walliams’ Best Selling children’s books. Before May’s Grand Opening, a special visitor was on hand to ensure everything is in place and ready for the public. David Walliams visited Gangsta Granny this week saying he was “thrilled” and with a selection of local school children ensure our brand new dark ride is more than ready for May 17th.  Check out the full BBC Midlands Today Report below.

Ben and Granny and Granny are attempting to pull off the greatest heist in the history of the world: to steal the crown jewels. You can join Ben and Granny on this epic journey with the newest addition to our family ride collection, a 4-D ride experience like no other.
