Came here with a friend on a day trip to Blackpool & really enjoyed it! Actors were brilliant & we only had a small group of around 10 so it was great for everyone to be involved. Thanks for a great experience

A journey back through various periods in history ranging from the Black death to witchcraft trials and various means of torture resulting in an ultimate surprise at the end of the experience.

Might be on the expensive side for a family of 4,but great fun. Not an exhibit,it has actors in each stage playing their parts well. Laughed lots and not too scary for children, about right I'd say.

Called here with my two lads on a very wet Blackpool Sunday and had a great time, can't comment on value for money as we used Merlin passes to get in but we would visit again at some point. The actors were great, deserved of a special mention is the guy with a beard that did the courtroom and operation... More

Myself and three friends visited after a spur of the moment trip. We were the only 4 in and had such a laugh. 2 of the girls were terrified which made it even funnier for us. The drop ride at the end certainly gave us a fright along with each story. The theming, lighting and costumes were so detailed. All... More

We went in as a couple recommended by a friend and were not disappointed. Great scary fun and interesting too, though I screamed more than I knew I could! I would not take young children in as a couple of kids looked a bit traumatised (we felt sorry for them) also, one got cocky & mouthy.This spoilt our fun as... More
