Incarnation at Alton Towers

The Alton Towers Dungeon is an attraction at the Theme Park Alton Towers that replaced the former ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the ride’ in 2019. It is one of many Dungeon attractions in the UK that are part of the Merlin Entertainments. After an encounter with the Warden of the Dungeon, visitors enter into the Court Room of the Bishop of Stafford who has been appointed by Elizabeth I as justice of the peace for the shire. The Bishop says:’To my flock of lambs, I shall be both shepherd and butcher!’ Several visitors are put on trial for various crimes for everyone being sentenced to journey down the black river!
