Please do not waste your money on entering this venue Although it is not expensive to enter only £3 per adult it is a total waste of money, on entering we was greeted by a male who lacked a sense of humour and manners, after paying our £3 each we went inside. It was that dark I had to turn... More

I'm only leaving a review because of all the negative ones I've just read. Tickets are really cheap, and there is a sign as you go in saying if the "live actors" are in or not. There are some artefacts from Dracula movies framed on the walls, and the story is told through mannequins, audio speakers, and there are also... More

Visited as a family of 5 on haloween it said there was live actors so assumed it was going to be fun, there where no live actors just moving models and lights, took about 5 minutes, waste of money, a bag of chips each would have been cheaper and lasted longer!

Quite literally the best thing I've ever done. The scariest experience I've have had nightmares ever since, so not for the faint hearted. The live actor with the cloak on his head really deserves an Oscar. You could hear my screams for miles around. Can't wait to make my next visit.

All it is is a few props nothing to read only story's being played over a speaker system which I suppose u could stand and listen too but u soon get bored and move... More

Folks do not waste your money on this 'experience'. We paid the entrance fee in good faith expecting a couple of hours of interesting artefacts and info about Dracula. Interestingly the ticket agent said fees were non-refundable we should have taken that as a warning as lots of people must have asked for their money back i am sure. Instead... More

This is totally rubbish, it took 2 minutes from start to finish and half of the animation didn't work. It claims to have live actors oh yeah one guy with a stinking sheet over his head put his arms up as we past, your better off spending your £3.00 on a pint. Just look at the other reviews and it...
