    All I can say is BOOK THIS BOOK THIS BOOK THIS!!! Me and my husband had an amazing time in the dungeon, it was better than I thought 100% the people get really into the role they were all hilariously funny I can’t wait to go back to York to book this again. So don’t think this will be a boring tour (like I did) it was everything but….well done all at York dungeons had an amazing experience, many jumps and screams not forgetting the many laughs I can’t rate this high enough so really hope to see you guys in the dungeon soon.

    I was a bit hesitant about going in at first because I didn’t like the sound of live actors getting involved and jump scaring us. I braved it (On my own btw) and the experience was incredibly fun. Took me by surprise in a good way. They got me involved but they sort of encourage the group to play along too so it didn’t feel as embarrassing. Loved every minute of it! Go and get yourselves a ticket :)

    This was great fun. A bit intimidating for me at times but sure isn’t that the point and I’m a bit of a scaredy custard anyway. The characters were fantastic, in particular the first one you meet, the Plague Doctors nurse and the torturer - who was my favourite - he was rocking a bit of an Alfie Solomons type from Peaky Blinders. Some of the jokes are a bit risqué, but if the kids are really young they’ll pass over their heads, if they get them, they’ll find them highly amusing toilet type humour. If you can go to the toilet before you go - do - they are as scarey and intimidating as the rest of the show. All I would say in terms of criticism is that it ended very suddenly. But maybe that’s because I enjoyed it so much!!
