Drop Dead: Drop Ride To Doom

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

The crowd cheers and it's your turn to face the drop. Lucky you. You had better put on a good show/death for them - your executioner will show you the 'ropes'.The noose is ready as are the Judge and Priest. 

The thrilling faster than gravity drop is the ultimate end to your Dungeon journey, however, it is fully optional so if you fancy a reprieve, feel free to look on as others endure the ride.

Please Note: The ‘Drop Dead’ drop ride will be closed for planned maintenance from Sunday 25th February 2018, currently scheduled to re-open on Wednesday 14th March 2018. Re-opening dates subject to change. 

For more information, including restrictions and tickets, please see The London Dungeon's official website.
