    Good laugh
    Went with my 15yr old son and we really enjoyed it. The actors are amazing. Couldn't stop laughing at the end after seeing the picture of us on the drop ride. Would defo recommend this and if back in Blackpool will do it again.

    Brilliant experience, great actors, highly recommend!
    We booked the tour and escape room for us and our 8 year old daughter (who is a pretty nervous kid) and we all absolutely loved it. Its scary, but not terrifying. Definitely ok for kids for anyone who’s worried. Its interactive and funny. The actors are incredible, I was really impressed with how good the whole experience was for the price. The escape room was great too highly recommend doing both activities. That said, I wasn’t impressed with getting to the front desk to start our escape room to be told it’s been pushed back and hour and a half and no one had told me. This after I’d already been contacted and asked if I minded our initial slot being brought forward 30 minutes which meant me changing our initial dungeon booking. (Which absolutely wasn’t an issue) Whoever it was that changed it left it to the poor girl on the desk to tell us on arrival aswell which really wasn’t fair to her. Luckily, our accommodation was close by and we hadn’t yet checked in so wasn’t really too much of an inconvenience and It wouldn’t put me off booking in again if we go back with friends / family.

    Absolutely captivating!
    Where do I even start? Right from the entrance the actors were around mingling with the queue line, and they have such amazing personalities! We really didn't know what to expect as we went in (after avoiding spoilers) and came out feeling like it was fully worth what we had paid. Each scene in the attraction is highly detailed and feels greatly immersive. The actors do an astounding job at portraying their characters as well, which further built upon the immersion. Also, from what I noticed they made sure the kids were happy too by keeping them comfortable in each scenario meaning it is definitely suitable for anybody who doesn't mind a bit of a scare - even the little ones! Overall, I think it's really something you have to experience for yourself so I'll end here. It's definitely a thing to add to your Blackpool bucket list!

    Gruesome family fun for all!
    Never really fancied it but we had time to kill. So glad we did! Fabulously gruesome fun! The live actors were all excellent and incredibly professional. Apart from the ghost story near the end, I'd say it is no scarier than Horrible Histories so children 8 plus will be fine. The place run like clockwork with small groups being ushered to each character. Plenty of jump scares and sensory extras to keep you on your toes. I was too chunky for the ride at the end ( top heavy size 24) but I wasn't made to feel awkward in the slightest. My daughter said the ride was fabulous but petrifying. Look forward to visiting the other Dungeons now.

    Wonderful Attraction, try it!
    We enjoyed a fun visit to the tower dungeons today, there really is no expense spared on the acting, decor and surprises. As a family we love Universal Studios and this attraction is of the same high calibre. This isn't just some actors dressed up to jump out on you, it's storytelling at its finest with scary scenes and surprises along the way. It is a great day out that you may not expect to find in Blackpool, definitely worth a visit. (May not be suitable for very young children)

    Superb performance
    Fantastic day at Blackpool Dungeons despite some irresponsible parents bringing a baby (no more than 18 months old) into the attraction. The child was predictably terrified and cried throughout. The actors were amazing. They carried on their show so professionally. Especially the actor who played Charlotte in the witch’s cottage. Perhaps a no infants rule did the future might prevent this!

    Overall a good albeit crowded experience. One major let-down that was resolved to satisfaction.
    We (myself and my 9 year-old son) were on the 13.45 tour on Sunday 27 August. Overall, this was an enjoyable experience, very entertaining with interactive elements, kind of like a Horrible Histories of Blackpool but better. Perhaps a little too crowded with people being left with nowhere to sit in certain stages and others jostling to be at the front of the group. The only major let down was an overzealous employee upon reaching the end of the tour. She seemingly took delight in telling my son that he did not meet the 1.4m height restriction for the drop tower ride. This was despite my son being let on the 1.4m rides at Alton Towers over 2 months ago, and being obviously tall enough on the height measurement poster at the entrance to the Dungeon. I explained this to the employee, but to no avail. Not wanting to hold up the people behind us, we left the dungeon. This made my son cry as he was really looking forward to the drop tower. Fortunately, this was swiftly resolved upon complaining to the manager on duty who confirmed that my son should have got on the drop tower and apologised for what had happened and provided us with a refund - very good customer service skills and ultimately this was the difference between a 1/5 and a 4/5.

    Awesome attraction, fantastic with less able people all in all one not to miss
    it was a brilliant show very funny with a little shock thrown in for good measure. All the characters were simply awesome. My partner is disabled and her her disabilities meant we had to miss a couple of the rooms due to steps and strobe lighting but that didnt spoil our enjoyment. The staff were amazing and helpful and stayed in full character as they directed round the bits we couldnt see. We will be going again when go back to Blackpool

    Fun and scary experience!
    Amazing experience! Love all the sets and how well thought out they are. Had some fun jump scares throughout. Mirror maze is a laugh and drop tower took our breaths away! Will definitely be back as was a overall amazing experience! 10/10. You learn a lot about the rich Lancashire history as-well. Better than any history lesson I have ever had.

    Brilliant few hours spent here
    First time at one of these dungeons, I was really impressed by the team here. They went above and beyond to ensure that everyone had an amazing experience. Surprisingly I found it more funny than scary. I really did not know what to expect at one of these but I was glad I went - I will go again - Brilliant fun and a great way to kill a few hours in Blackpool

What an amazing experience.
You are immediately immersed as soon as you arrive by amazingly talented actors. Watch out when they jump out to scare you though lol.
It’s well worth the money. 11 different rooms to experience through the journey.
The whole experience is so well created. The decor is of a very high standard and well maintained.
It is spooky, funny, historically accurate and informing.
We were a mixed group of ages from 10 to 44 and we all thoroughly enjoyed it!
Definitely recommended to anyone visiting Blackpool.

Such a fun and thrilling experience. The staff are in character at all times and do it incredibly well! I have a neck problem and they were very helpful in helping me bypass anything that may have aggregated it. There are stairs at the end which means if you have mobility issues you can't access the drop ride, which I couldn't do anyway and they kindly showed us out a different, accessible way. You get awesome photos and the gift shop is well stocked. Red Lion pub at the end serves drinks and snacks. A great experience overall, the staff really make this!

Have never been to a dungeons attraction before so wasn't sure what ti expect, especially taking my 9 year old. The whole thing was amazing, what a show the actors put on, very impressed. Laughed alot, jumped out of my skin plenty and there also might have been a couple of screams 😂 There were a couple of bits I covered my kids eyes for but overall it was a great visit.

The only thing I would add, waiting at the start before going on the lift, if you have never been before, its not obvious what you should be doing, which is to just wait. We waited around 10-15 minutes before it started. Also the photos were pricey, but thats the same in all the Blackpool attractions.

I absolutely loved this tourist attraction, I came as part of my hen do, and what an experience you guys made this for me. My sides hurt from so much laughter. I would definitely come again and enjoy this experience as a spectator rather than being used as part of the acts. ( so much fun).. the Dr's assistant and judge were my fave characters by far. Well done blackpool dungeons.

Really good attraction! Takes about an hour, going through multiple sets, each representing a particularly horrible part of history (in a good way!), with actors re-enacting various roles, plus the occasional jump scare mixed in with the historical tales. It's dark and smelly, to simulate those olden times, and the attention to detail for both the actors and sets is impressive. There's great audience interaction/participation at various points and the actors are great at having some fun with the visitors! The ride at the end is also a fun way to finish. Really enjoyed this attraction. Might not hold up to repeat visits (as you know what's coming) but definitely recommended!

For the cost you would expect much more. There was very little in the way of history or information. Though the odd interesting bit thrown in.
A lot of theatrics
