Hooked yet? Let's delve into the nitty gritty of Blackpool's scariest attraction. Read on if you dare...
Blackpool Tower Dungeon is the ultimate thrill-filled journey through 1,000 years of Lancashire's murky past, with 8 awesome live shows and a 60-minute tour filled with laughter, screaming, theatre, jokes, history, drop rides, special effects and a maze! It's intense and it's over the top and it's bang on the money for the big and brave ones.
The shows and fully themed experiences are based on real Lancastrian history and legend so you'll get up close and personal with real (ish) sinister characters including notorious Skippool smuggler Captain Johnson and Alizon Devize, the famous Pendle Witch!
This is the black comedy of attractions; a dark, smelly, noisy place where you can expect to jump out of your skin and laugh your butt off in equal measure. They recommend not bringing under 8s but report that many 8-year-olds enjoy it thoroughly: judge your own kids' tolerances before planning!
Watch gory demonstrations of torture by The Torturer - relax, he's a craftsman... well he has tools at least... Familiarise yourself with what human innards look like and find out where the Torturer's 'sensitive side' lies.
Now, be warned the Dark Chapel is an experience not for the faint-hearted... If you have a keen interest in the Vikings, monks, the Dark Ages and twisted history, this attraction is 100% a winner. You'll learn about elements of history regarding Lancashire in the Dark Ages, how the Great Plague spread across this land and of course, the dark wraith of God... You must remember that the Dark Ages were trying times, so despite popular belief, these monks will offer you no sanctuary.
Ding-dong! The plague is knocking at your door, will you answer? That was a trick question, you have no choice, sorry! Confront one of the world's most tenacious diseases in history in one of the bleakest attractions of the dungeons. Not to worry, you've got the Doctor's assistant on your side... or have you? Set in Plague Street in 1349, you'll witness all signs of the Black Death with red crosses on doors, rotting bodies and black rats. This gruesome but fantastic experience offers your family the chance to learn about The in-vogue cures from 1349, Not-so modern anaesthetic, and what those leeches are really for...
As you make your way through the past in this immersive adventure, you’ll see, smell and hear the ghastly history of the county, which ends in the eerie Pendle Woods where you’ll be sentenced to death for your crimes of witchcraft on the ultimate Drop Ride to the Death... if you can stomach it.
This exciting walkthrough experience brings the darkest of history to life with 60-minute immersive experiences and incredible stories. Despite the horror and gore, this really is a family attraction! It is one of many dungeon attractions in the UK. You're sure to have a fantastic time and maybe some nightmares too. That's all part of the fun though, right? It's not all doom and gloom though, you'll unearth some absolute corkers on your deathly voyage with funny history on the cards too. The brilliant actors really illuminate the dark history of ancient Britain, making it an exceptional day out.
A fun attraction for a unique family day out! Filled with jump scares but there's no need to explore history with fear because you'll be having lots of fun too as you discover historic England.
