    Fun & very enjoyable. The actors playing the characters are amazing, customer participation is needed, no one gets harmed and it’s all good fun. I was put in a jail and chosen to have the plaque. Not to mention when the lights go off then back on, the actor would be stood right infront of me, yes I screamed

    Bit slow to start. But got much better the further you went in. If you go in with a good crowd who are up for interaction and a laugh, then you'll have a good time. Downside... way to many people per party for the size of the rooms. And pictures as you go in were rushed and therefore little fun.

    We (Grandparents) of a 13 and 14 year old took them to York Dungeons - we all loved it , a few arghhhs from us all and lots of jumps which made it rather exciting for the grandkids and for us Would definitely recommend and worth the £70 something pounds spent for well over the hour Actors are all very good and the smells and sounds are really spooky
