We decided to visit the dungeons as a fun way to learn the history of Lancashire as we are from Yorkshire. We bought the tickets online so got them a bit cheaper than standard admission plus we got to use the priority entrance. When we arrived at the torturers room the group was asked if anyone was from Yorkshire and... More

Visited with a 12 yr old and a 9 yr old. The older one was fine but the younger was very scared! However the trip was very very good!

A big chunk of the experience is a repeat of the London one, with less talented actors and less scary moments. The London one I would estimate as twice as long, even the drop ride was longer. Still, the friends we took enjoyed it, as they hadn't been to any of the dungeons before, and it was fun to watch... More

We went here after reading the reviews. Our youngest child is 8 and oldest 17. It was quite scary of your child is shy and gentle. However if they are jokers. Loud and love being made to jump they will love it. Mine did. My little girl however was scared witless. She was terrified. It's advertised as suitable for families.... More

My two children really enjoyed this, They came out having really enjoyed the attraction told me so much about it and all the funny things that happened and all the scary things. The adults on the other hand didn't find it that good, accurate history just a bit boring. All in all a good fun filled 70 minutes though.

Me and my partner went and it was only £10 each which was great for the price. When we went in it was quite good how they keep it reasonable for all ages. However we was hoping it was going to be a little bit more scary than i was. The one thing that did let it down was there... More

Terrificly terrifying. Jumping out of our seats (literally!) And my mum was called up and lied about her name she was so scared! Set is amazing, actors play parts well (especially the Jester, hilarious! Going to take the remark about my legs as a compliment! " You have very nice legs. I may have to steal them when you are...

A wonderful experience, pleasantly surprised. Full entertaining experience that bombarded your sense's through a non stop tour of thrills and spills presented by a wonderful cast of actors. I would definitely visit again. Tip don't pay full price, vouchers available offering various discounts including BOGOF.
