I recently visited Terror Tower and I went in by myself. WRONG DECISION!! It was terrifying. I was trying to get through it as quick as I could but I still loved it. Some of the animatronics and the greens lights were not working so was left standing for ages waiting for the light to change. Definitely need to update... More

A friend and myself visited Terror Tower for a laugh as it was only £5 each, we didn't expect much for this price, however we soon realized the attraction was scarier than we thought. The live actors in terror tower were pretty creepy, as at one point we weren't sure whether the actor was an actor or a dummy! Other... More

Can you believe being scared has never been so much fun as the Terror Tower in Scarborough ! We visited this attraction on Boxing day and only paid £3 per head but even in season this attraction is good value for money. On each set wait for the green light and off you go into the unknown and be a... More

£9 for myself daughter and Son, it was very scary and the price was good. Took us 10 minutes but would have been longer had my Daughter not nearly had a nervous breakdown, it is small corridors with surprises and it does make you jump. Thankfully no real actors as I may have unintentionally attacked them haha, good fun.

The terror tower was really scary even without the live actors. Takes about 10-15 minutes to get round. Right on the sea front it is ideal to visit during a day out. I would definetly recommend.

Went in here for a laugh with my husband and 15 yr old son, husband very brave leading through like a trooper...son in the middle, slightly nervous, me behind, screaming like a girl......that was before the live actor showed his face! I've never screamed, run, laughed, as much in all my life. Absolute riot of fun.....enter at your peril.... Seriously... More

Very scary experience - plenty of stuff on the walls - live actors jump out behind you and infront of you too which is good. It is well-done and certainly scared my younger brother (age 10). Perhaps unsuitable for younger children. Variety of scary scenes, skeleton, dinosaur etc - loud noises and music etc. Short and sweet.

Twenty years from opening the Terror Tower is still going strong. The scary elements are linked into horror films such as Arachnophobia I do not easily get spooked but there were a couple of times when I jumped. Good value for money. Do not consider taking kids in, wholly unsuitable.

My husband decided that it would be a good idea for us to go in to the terror tower and he couldn't of made a worse decision for me if he tried. From the second you walk in it is definitely what it says on the tin. I have never been so scared in all my life omg!! I came... More
