Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Ride was a dark boat ride, based on the famous novel by the same name by Roald Dahl. While the attraction reused the course from its previous incarnations, the boat ride was shortened a bit to fit a Glass Elevator experience into the building. The Glass Elevator used multiple screens and a vibrating floor in a standing environment to simulate movement.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory: The Ride is a retheme of the Toyland Tours dark ride. The attraction closed in 2015 and was later rethemed to the Alton Towers Dungeon, which opened in 2019. The rethemed boat ride is part of the Dungeon experience, and is now called the Black River Boat Ride.
