Went here in December, enjoyed it all, both funny and scary and the actors are engaging. The ride at the end is fun even though it's over quickly. Only criticism would be that it's pretty much the same as the London dungeons so as I had visited there, I knew what to expect in each room

Staff played their parts well but could make it scarier, more creeping up and putting people on edge. Plenty of laughs.

Let me start by saying that we only took part in three of the ten live shows they have going on because my son (8) was so completely freaked out we had to leave. I still gave this venue 5 stars because everything about it (except my son) was brilliant. The scene is set from the minute you step inside.... More

We had a great visit, scary but in a good way. Even our 6 year old daughter enjoyed it, she wasn't quite tall enough for the ride at the end though (secretly I'm glad about that) 😉

What a brilliant time we had. As it was the 27th of December it was just us and another family and despite this it was so much fun! Scary with an interesting history lesson! The staff are fantastic at what they do and great at giving you frights. I'm 30 & I was terrified (in a good way). The drop... More
