“Go on, I dare you! - Absolutely brilliant attraction!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2012

Having visited the dungeons over a decade ago I knew it makes a good visit, however, they have made many changes, all for the better.

There was a young child in our visitors group who was very frightened and had to leave with his parents - so this may not be a good place to take young or nervous children.

We had a fabulous visit, I personally was held up on the stand for witchery and then burned at the stake - which my teenagers thoroughly enjoyed!!!!

We will be returning in a few years without doubt!

“frightningly good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

enough fear to get a good squeel, but not so much as to spoil it. The court room experience was very exciting
