Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom

Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom


You have been judged and sentenced in Lancaster Gaol and now you must accept the consequences of your crimes. You are guilty of witchcraft and sentenced to hang - with no right of appeal.


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.

What you'll learn

  • How it felt to be hung as a witch.
  • How loud the crowd cheered with excitement.
  • What a cracking neck sounds like. Cringe!

THE Amazing Drop!

“My Daughter and I, were expecting something quite unique, and we weren't disappointed! The drop ride sensation was 'hyped up' by the time it took from sitting in the seat, to actually dropping. The shear speed and force was unbelievable, that I think I left my eyeballs behind LOL ... Pictures are taken, and a 'must' buy ... I'll be back to the Dungeons again this year! To see what the team of actors have in store for us :)”
