Reviewed November 11, 2013

well that's what dungeons are. This attraction is brilliant. The actors are fantastic and "guests" are intereacted with marvelously. Blood and gore galour but in a tasteful manner, with fun thrown in.

“Not for the little ones”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

i thought the tower dungeon was great . the actors were funny and there were plenty of scares . my younger two children came out very scared though so i wouldn't recommend it for anyone under 8 (my little lad hasnt slept in his own bed since ) but my teenager enjoyed it . we were told before we went it was suitable for all the family hence why we took them in . But it was a good experience . we didnt do the drop ride at the end as the young ones wanted to escape haha :P

“Good experience, friendly staff”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

When we went into the dungeon the lift had broken so we had to wait a while to go in. The actors were are really good and entertaining. The drop ride at the end was also good. Probably wouldn't go in again but I did enjoy our first visit.

What a great laugh !!! Thought my 7yr old wouldn't like it but after first 15 mins she was fine once she realised it was all pretend.. Highly recommended, only downfall was the stupid girl who sold us tickets, incorrectly advising us that we could still save money if we bough madam tausauds tickets separately. Only after visiting waxworks , being turned away and complaining at dungeon to manager, we were given discounted tickets to waxworks and free re-entry to dungeons up to oct 2014

“Where else could you go on Halloween?”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

If you want to laugh or scream this was the place to go, love the way everyone stays in character - the cheeky highway man, weird doctor and scary judge.
This was such a fun way to spend the evening - with a drink thrown in too.
Will go back for another visit - don't want to say what happens otherwise it would spoil the surprise, great value for money.
