Visited here on our short break to York.
The actors were good and drawed you into the story.
Like the way they picked on people from the crowd to help tell their stories and do demonstrations on.
Visitied London and edinburgh dungeons in the past.
Must say York doesn't top these two and could do with a ride to make it more fun.

Me and my wife visited York for a few days and really wanted to go to the Dungeons while we were there! We were not let down! The actors were fantastic, and we spent a good hour and half on the tour! I would recommend this to anyone!

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.

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.
