Really well put together. My 9 year old absolutely loved it. Just enough of a fright to make it thrilling, without being terrifying

Very busy on the afternoon we went (probably due to the rain, but hey this is only England in August). Queues took a long time to move but I think they were having technical difficulties because the lift doors (first stage of the experience) wouldn't work so we had to use the backstage stairs... Full marks to the performer who... More

There was no priority for those who had already bought tickets - altho this was adverised -and we ended up waiting a further 45 mins to get in as they were letting people who bought tickets on the door in before the priority queue. Once in the attraction tho it was very enjoyable and spooky in places. If they sort... More

This attraction was a fantastic opportunity for me and my children, however if you have children who are afraid of the dark I would not recommend bringing them along. At some points during the show it gets so dark that your unable to see anything. Both myself and my children thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

My husband and I visited on Sunday 16th August 2015 and had an amazing experience. Every one of the performers were really good and a few wee frights were given. The ride at the end was excellent. (Except seeing my expression on my face on exiting). Thanks all for a lovely hour.

Thought I would coax my husband who is not very good with anything remotely scary and I have to say it did not disappoint. I would say though it's not suitable for young children.
