Visited with my 11 year old daughter, we both really loved it and had great fun screaming and being scared. We only had a 15 min wait which wasn't bad for a Saturday and we hadn't pre booked either, we were kept entertained outside by a couple of the staff dressed appropriately. Inside it was dark, scary, noisy and smelly - just what you'd expect from dungeons really. It was interactive, interesting and lots of fun - I'd definitely recommend it. The only downside was the price - £15.95 adult and £11.40 child!

Went with my husband and two children. Found it very entertaining especially as my husband got picked on to join in twice. If you aren't keen on joining in the fun then it may not be for you! Bought the family ticket online which made it much cheaper.

Had a great time, laughed a lot and jumped a lot. Would recommend it for a good laugh. Last just short of an hour and half, well worth the money.

Fab fun with a great group of actors...very convincing, the torturer and the witchfinder were particularly good! I am a bit of a scaredy cat, but this was great fun for all the family!

Great way to learn things as very interactive and they like to get people up to get them involved. It could get quite scary as it was quite dark but they sure made up for it with making you laugh. Great experience
