“creepy fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

Me and my daughter went on Saturday and we were expecting a watered down version of the London ones we have been to, but we were delighted with the whole experience, for the money it is well worth it!
Cheaper on the internet worked out ten pound each - loved the Dick Turpin experience - won't spoil it :) and mind bending part :) .
Excellent scarefest one thing would of liked a ride too like London.

“Good fun”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

Very educational and scary experience. We had a great time mainly because of the fantastic performance of all the actors involved. In comparison to other dungeons special effects such as lights and sounds were used more sparingly than we would have liked. However, still we'll worth the visit.

“Good Fun. But”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2014

This is a fun place to visit. Lots of good interactive fun with some really good actors.
Its a history lesson really but with some good laughs along the way.
The downside is the price. At £16 per person it could work out really expensive if you a family with children.
But I guess the place has some massive overheads as its a City Centre attraction and has to pay for the staff and the upkeep.
SO pays your money and take your chance.

“Great Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

As much as it's a great history lesson it's been made so much fun with great actors and well reconstructed rooms set with excellent props and life like bodies.
Its a great family visit, not to scary for the young ones.

“Fearnominal”

Had a great time on my birthday although the cake we paid for never appeared. Really scary and my wonderful Wife couldn't wait to see sun light again. Lots of scares and educational to boot.
