Not bad, doesn't take much of your time.

Had an awesome time here today. Staff were so friendly and informative. Chamber of horrors was so amazing. My partner and I loved all the info in the guided tour, it was so fascinating.

Chamber of horrors is good the rest is a tad boring. Good place to go once but you wouldn't go a second time. Guides are knowledgeable and fun to interact with

Wasn't overly excited. Knowledgable guides. But not something I'd be doing again. I did like the way the dungeon tied in to ripleys believe it or not.

The Chamber of Horrors was very interesting and the tour guide was very good at her job. It was like a very entertaining history lesson.

Good collection of models, history is well displayed but a little dated. Underneath "dungeon" and talk was good.
