Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom

The Newgate Gallows

It's 1783 and here's an exciting first. The Long Drop is to be used for the first time outside Newgate Prison..

Lucky you. You had better put on a good show/death for the awaiting crowds. Your executioner will show you the 'ropes'. LOL.

What you'll learn

  • What the 'long drop' is.
  • The subsequent effect on the body.
  • What a cracking neck sounds like. Cringe.

It's time…

The crowd cheers and it's your turn to face the drop. The noose is ready as are the Judge, Priest and executioner. The thrilling faster than gravity drop is the ultimate end to your Dungeon journey.

First Drop Dead Ride Ever

“Drop dead, one word comes to mind EPIC! would definitely ride the beast again. can't wait for round 3. got a little scared but other than that had fun riding it. first drop ride in the dark gets full marks out of ten.”



“I had ridden the drop ride before in the old dungeon, but oh my this one got me screaming! I wasn't expecting the drop so soon! I loved the new twist as well! Well done!”



“The drop was great. I was on a school trip and as I threw my back down and strapped in i wasn't prepared for that heart stopping moment as you dropped. And seeing my face as the camera had flashed on the screen as i went out was fantastic - an instant buy. I wished that it would of lasted longer but even at the length it was, it was still memorable! Im going back there as soon as!”



“The drop ride was good and very fun, but the only down fall is it doesn't go on very long”
