“Better than London”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2012

You can tell this is new, it is so much better than London and York, it is well worth a visit. Takes about 90 minutes to walk around.

“Great Scares and Wonderful Theming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2012

Having been to the London Dungeon, and coming away disappointed, I was eager to try out another Dungeon attraction. I have to say, this one outstripped the London one by miles!

Whilst it has less live shows than the London counterpart, it is well done and is the perfect length at just over 1 hour. The Jester at the start, who prepares to send you into the Elevator to Hell, is absolutely fantastic and was the highlight of the trip for me! He picked on lots of people, and they were all good sports, including my Mother and Father!

There were frights aplenty whilst going round the shows, and they were informative too which is nice to see. These things rely on audience participation, and luckily we had a good group of people and some very eager actors. They had us laughing nervously all the time!

The shows were similar to those in London, but with a local twist to them, so it was kind of familiar, but also kind of different. I just think everything was much better here than the tired experience of London, maybe as they are newer.

The drop ride at the end is an excellent finale, and looking at the photos at the end was quite hilarious. At least unlike the Blackpool Tower they weren't quite as hard with their selling of photos, which pleased me.

This attraction is very good, and well worth a visit for anyone who likes a scare or two! Or even those who don't, like me!

The full experience was fantastic - from being greeted at the door to the shows going aroung. It had the fun and scary value all round, topped off great with the drop ride at the end!

“very good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 August 2012

when lining up outside i assumed it would not be that scary as there was tiny children in front of me, i was wrong! not going to ruin anything but i found it very enjoyable,interesting and well worth the money...the only complain was the lady surgeon was very rude...

the gift shop was amazing but a little too pricey to buy anything..
