The ride in 2019

Wallace & Gromit's Thrill-O-Matic is a Tracked Dark Ride built by US manufacturer Arrow Dynamics currently located at Blackpool Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, Lancashire, England, UK.


The ride system originally opened in 1971 as Gold Mine. This incarnation of the ride closed in 2011.

After an extensive rebuild and retheme the ride reopened as Wallace & Gromit's Thrill-O-Matic on April 29, 2013. The ride system was extensively overhauled by UK manufacturer W.G.H. Transportation Engineering.
