Alton Towers Dungeon is an attraction at Alton Towers in Alton, Staffordshire, England, UK. It consists of a walk-through and a Dark Boat Ride built by German manufacturer Mack Rides. The boat ride has been in operation since 1981 with various names and themes.
Following the closure of the ride, parts of the theming were auctioned to raise money for charity.
A trademark application was submitted for the name "Alton Towers Dungeon" in summer 2018. In September, work began on stripping the building previously used for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Ride, which closed in 2015. The park announced on 11 October that The Alton Towers Dungeon would debut in 2019.
The attraction opened as Alton Towers Dungeon on 23 March 2019.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Ride
The ride was named after and based on the books of the same name by Roald Dahl. After leaving the boat ride, guests entered the "great glass elevator". Although the room itseld did not move, the floor rumbled and video was projected on all four walls and the roof, recreating the scene from the book.
