I did enjoy our visit to the Blackpool Tower Dungeons but still it’s a hefty price tag for an attraction that is about an hour long. It’s a shame it is quite expensive to visit as it’s only about an hour long to get through. The actors were brilliant, they really told the story well and I commend them for keeping my attention. These dungeon attractions have been around for many years now and they seem to be following the same format which makes them a once only visit. It should be around £10 for an adult and £6 for a child which would make it an attraction you would be happy to do again or do again with others.

We purchased a deal which allowed us to visit three places during our stay (online) meaning that we paid only £101 for Madam Tussauds, Blackpool Tower and the Dungeons for the 3 of us (2 adults and a 12 yr old).
It's been a while since my daughter gripped my hand that tight. We all loved the characters, the frights and the laughs. It was very interactive and the drop ride at the end gave us a fright to end the day.

Fantastic experience. Went on the 24th July. Actors were fantastic especially the first one - the jester sounded so much like Keith Lemon. Haven't a bad word to say about any of the experience.
Only downside is that you had to pay online and no facility to pay by card on the day. I understand covid and everything but this felt over the top especially when they were pushing the sales of brochures if you didn't purchase that option before hand. They are still selling alcohol in the pub gift shop at the end and photographs so to not accept card payments for the entry fee was quite bizarre.

After all the hype I entered without other members of my family as they were too scared. I found that even though the cast were very knowledgeable and good at what they were doing I didn't find the experience was scary enough. It made me laugh more than anything with the tongue in cheek humour. I would recommend this though just for the fun of seeing others in your group jumping at the slightest noise.

I love the dungeon and have been to most all over the country several times. During a recent trip to Blackpool we did this one.

Sadly the entire experience was ruined by an extremely drunk group of women. They shouldn't have been allowed in as they stank of alcohol and were obviously drunk from the start. They swore loudly during the tour in front of children, their phones were going off, they talked constantly meaning we couldn't hear. We spoke to an actor before entering and asked to be in a different group and were told it would be sorted.

A security man came and spoke with then and then followed us through the rest of the tour but didn't intervene as they continued to be disruptive.

The whole situation was very poorly handled. They shouldn't have been allowed in, they were heavily intoxicated and it spoilt what should have been a really fun experience.

I have to say this exceeded my expectations and Covid rules were followed...The tower dungeons were great and better than I imagined. I went with my sister in law and 2 kids aged 13 and each 1 of us had a brill time. The tour took approx 1 hour and we were constantly entertained by The actors who were great. The scenery and spooky dungeon settings along with The spooky story's we were told by the actors along the way were fantastic and made us all jump with fear a few times..I would recommend this to adults and older children but not for younger ones.
Fantastic experience and brilliant acting...

Visited Halloween weekend. As we were queuing up I felt quite panicky anticipating the potential claustrophobia in the dungeon, however the staff were very reassuring and advised me to request the ‘back passage’ instead of the lift, which I did. Once I got into the dungeon, it was fine. The shows were funny, interactive and interesting, with just the right amount of jumpiness without being too scary. The actors were all really into their roles. Very good fun attraction for older families.

We visited the dungeon a couple
Of days ago. My daughter who is 8 wanted to go but when we arrived she started getting nervous going in but a lovely lady at reception gave her a brave badge and said if she wanted to leave at anytime
She can which I thought was so lovely at the time
Taking the time out to make my daughter feel more settled and in the end she loved it and kept talking about how the torture locked me
In a cage because I was laughing to much . The actors were brilliant I couldn’t stop laughing Every set was great I really enjoyed the cottage room which was quite spooky and funny at the same time. Would highly recommend absolutely brilliant 😁😁

We were walk-ons and decided to do this activity on a whim. My 11 year old daughter was a bit dubious but the staff were so lovely with her. They were very reassuring and they encouraged her that it was like Horrible Histories without the singing! 🤣
I must give a shout out to the actors, who make this experience so special. This review is coming from someone who has given ghost tours in Edinburgh for almost 20 years. The performers at the Blackpool Dungeon make this experience so enjoyable. I love a jump scare! Thank you.

It was our first visit and we had such a good time.

I would advise anyone thinking of visiting to check the website first to understand what is involved.

There are very dark rooms, which can get a bit warm and some areas can be a tight squeeze for some. Be prepared to have some minor insults thrown your way by the actors and they do get you involved. It is all part of the fun so don’t moan afterwards!

The whole experience is spooky fun but also informative on local Lancashire history.

We thought all of the actors were very good, as were the props and effects.

I wouldn’t recommend the show for small children but teenagers would be ok.

I’d also like to mention the greeting staff who sold us the tickets.

They were very friendly and helpful.

This was better than all of the big attractions.
