Spent hour and a half queuing up to be shepherded in for a photo shoot then further queuing to walk from room to room to be confronted by poor actors supposedly re enacting Lancashire history. Journey ends on rubbish ride another excuse for photo shoot. Then out into photo shop and souvenir shop to be ripped off again. Finally exit into arcade. Ridiculous price don't waste money.

Me and my husband came to Blackpool for our wedding anniversary. The only time we had been here was with our small children so we wanted to see the town for us as adults.

We did a lot of things from going to the circus to going too the pleasure beach but this for the both of us was by far the best part of our trip.

Having never visited any dungeons before I didn't know what to expect. but what an experience. the jester on our way in was fazes by me because I stared her out (ha ha) she said I needed to get a job there as people usually freak out when they see her and more so when she puts her bad breath near there face. lol

The tour itself is most definably worth the door price (we did have a big discount because of where I work) but I would have been more than happy to pay the price on the door.

The end part for me was fantastic, I'm far from naïve and I did kind of guess something would happen but oh my days did I crap my self and still t this day I cannot help but laugh when I look at he photo we purchased.

Well done to all the staff who made this a great fun experience.

Well, after the 'parents' had removed their young children who were petrified (why would you take them in in the first place??), it was good. Never spooked, but some good things and poor old Jim, one of the general public in the overall party was picked on by the staff at every opportunity. Well thought up about the history of the Fylde, and learnt something!!

Funny pics at the end for the ride, never thought my face could contort like that with out the aid of a surgeon!!!

Definitely worth a visit,although not with a young child! Unfortunately we couldn't continue our visit as our son was frightened but the bits we saw were brilliant. The actors were funny and played their parts well.will visit again
