The family ride called Thrill-O-Matic features all of the characters from the animated adventures, as well as classic scenes from A Close Shave, A Matter of Loaf and Death and the Wrong Trousers.

The indoor attraction consists of carriages that you sit in and is shaped like a giant Wallace slipper.
