“What a trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

This place is fantastic. It makes you very worried at first but when you get into it you are treated to fantastic actors who tell you a great story through whit and humor. Dont know how they remember everything.
All should visit.

“Horrible history and a great giggle!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

The moment you embark on your historic tour, you're treated to a great show, with witty actors telling horrifying stories as you journey through a tale that is loosely based on the area. Good fun for all ages!

“Scariest ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

You really must visit this place. It is so well put together and thought out. Very scary especially for the young and indeed not so young.

“Disgusted - an hour of my life I'll never get back!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

I visited the Blackpool tower dungeon on the back of some excellent reviews. To say that I was less than impressed is an understatement. Having recently experienced the fabulous farmageddon, a temporary annual attraction; I was expecting a lot for my 15 quid. And what an absolute waste of money it was. It reminded me of some terrible school outings I was forced to endure many moons ago, except it was far less informative. The actors were decidedly amateurish. The forced audience participation; embarrassing. It wasn't remotely scary and frankly bored me and the rest of my party throughout. I am at a loss to understand how it has received so many positive reviews. If you must go then please don't pay full price as I did. It isn't worth even half that. The only slightly positive aspect of the attraction is the ride at the end; a mini version of the pleasure beach playstation. Other than that I feel well and truly robbed - I wouldn't have paid 15p much less 15 quid had I known how bad it would be.
