Been a few times. Love it. Full of surprises for first timers. Get covered in blood. The usual for you're average torture dungeon. AND after being hung, walk cheerily away to great gift shop👍👍👍

i LOVED the Tower Dungeon! It was wonderful! It was so well themed! The groups were really small that the whole thing felt much more personal! The drop ride at the end is so much fun! My favourite part is the Skippool Smugglers! So well themed! I went through it 3 times in one day! Cannot wait to come to... More

Although I though I thought the dungeon was ok the beginning put me off because the first actor spoke to a family like rubbish I think it was meant to be done in humour I spoke to the family and they felt belittled and I felt the same

Second visit to the dungeons in 2 years. He staff here are amazing, really bring bits of history to life and a fun yet at time bloody scary way! Our kids are 9 and 10 and coped well with the fear factor, a times it does get very dark and there's always someone waiting in the shadows. One other adult... More

We took our 6 year old who said it was scary but loved it. We did too. The actors are really good and you do learn some history on the way. It's a bit like horrible histories. Pleasantly surprised with this attraction.

Did this as part of the resort pass. Was quite good. Actors and props were good although my 7 year old was quite scared. Good value as part of the pass but would not pay the separate entrance fee. Now I've been would not do it again but OK.

A little bit scary but good fun. Actors make sure it is an interactive experience. There are lots of nasty & yukky bits so its not for the squeamish. The drop ride at the end is fun.

Although there were quite a few jumps they were all comedy-based and that's what I like about the dungeons in general is that it takes the 'scary' and 'funny' and puts them both together and gives you a good history lesson at the same time. It's good that they tailor the experience to what they feel the audience can cope... More
