Overall rating

4.4 / 5

We had purchased a 2 day York pass for our visit. The passes allows access to the majority of York’s attractions and are well understood by those working in the venues. You do need to pre-book a number of the busier attractions but once done entry is easy. Don’t worry about pre booking the cruise as it’s not required although it says it is on the website.

The overall experience was excellent though it was difficult to understand what was being said by the “witch”. Some areas were too dark and possibly dangerous.

Great fun. Interaction between crowd and actors hilarious. Be prepared to take part and have fun. Be prepared to be scared.

Very easy to buy online straight on my phone saves money on activities

Amazing best hour or so I had in York Well worth the fee
