As the hands of the clock crept slowly towards 12 (noon!) on a chilly Halloween morning I decided there was no better place to take my younger brother and elderly mother than The Blackpool Tower Dungeons! And what a scream we had; Quite literally! We were met outside by their fiendishly friendly team and given a taste of things to come. . .
The diabolical Black Jester ushered us all into the lifts and our nightmare journey began! The history of 'The Pool That is Black' was interesting and informative, the sounds and smells were authentically stomach churning and the atmosphere was suitably creepy and bizarre.
My party were all extremely impressed by the standard of the young actors, most notable was the suitably malevolent Torturer who scared the life out of us yet still managed to get us all howling with laughter, The judge who accused us of all sorts of heinous crimes - I promise it wasn't me she saw dancing naked! and The Smuggler with his cheeky line in double entendre!!
The tour lasted for 70 minutes, so proved to be excellent value for money and I had such a 'bloody' good time I even braved Drop Dead. . . the drop ride to . . . err. . . Death!!
Such an outstanding time was had by all we even spent at the gift shop! Which really is against my principles as I am a lifelong resident of Blackpool.
Finally I would just like to give the whole cast of Dungeon actors a 'virtual' round of applause, such a shame we couldn't reward them for their wonderfully wicked effort at the time!!
