The Castle Dungeon – The Experience

Your journey starts 300 years ago at the pits of Warwick Castle, where you’ll travel through the darkest history of this medieval castle. The Monk will meet you there and take you on a gruesome journey, to the darkest times across Europe and more. You may be inside the castle, but are you safe within the castle walls?

You must keep a watchful eye out because the Torturer may just make you change your mind… But you must carry on and face your darkest fears, and as you travel through, their dreaded Judge will decide your fate. If you stay on their good side you may be safe, but if not… you’ll end up in the Execution Room. Eeep!

Hang on though! If you do escape, your journey isn’t finished yet, because you’ll be destined to hear the tale of the ‘Cursed Castle’ from a very vengeful Witch. Will you be brave enough to face her? Will you be able to stomach the rat-infested alleyways, winding dark hallways, and the feeling of impending doom? For those who love to be spooked, you’ll be delighted. And for those with a nervous disposition and a fragile stomach, you’ll be repulsed.

An immersive experience that is truly not for the faint of heart. With terrifying jump scares around every corner, special effects are designed to spook and startle you. Unnerving narrow pathways, small rooms and spiral staircases that have no handrails… You need to tread carefully. Especially when you reach certain areas where you’ll be greeted with looming smoke effects, strobe lighting, and things that may go bump in the night…
