The Gruffalo River Ride Adventure is a dark water ride that opened in March 2017 at Chessington World of Adventures Resort in Greater London, England, developed by Merlin Entertainments. It takes riders through scenes based on The Gruffalo franchise. The scenes consist largely of digital projection and include clips from the 2009 animated Gruffalo film.
From the entrance, riders then enter a station decorated with stage-flats and leaves suspended from the ceiling.
The scenes throughout the ride depict the Gruffalo story, using screens, ambient lighting, projections and animations. The ride ending retains the two smaller of the three sets of fountains from its predecessor Bubbleworks.
An on-ride photo is taken as the boat drops down a ramp into the final scene.
