Yikes, this isn't looking good for your underwear!

Welcome to 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.

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

🎫 Enjoy access to all shows and rides with your ticket, secure your admission, and save by booking online in advance rather than at the attraction.
