Personally I thought it was excellent, maybe not scary enough? The Mrs on the other hand thought it was terrifying and wouldn't go back. Even necked a very strong vodka in the bar after.

Great entertainment, passes an hour. Actors are great and funny. History is told and a few shocks and screams along the way. Been in a few times and it's still funny to go again to watch the reactions of new people! Does get very dark in places and loud sharp noises.

While I was living in Blackpool for 3 years not long ago visiting all the local tourist attractions needed to be done at least once! And the Blackpool tower dungeon was great fun! A fab day out with a small group of friends or family!

I went yesterday Saturday 21st January on the 13.00 "tour" I booked "on line" and had a £3.50p discount, always a good deal. yes, most of the "Dungeons" are similar and having done: Amsterdam, Edinburgh, York and London; you sort of know what you get but having said that, I enjoyed the experience. The actors engage you, a little scary... More

Overall I enjoyed it here and the shows were good with the witch of pendle but I felt it wasn't worth what I paid so wouldn't come back here.

We visited in December and was not sure what to expect once in the dungeon the acting started and to be honest I found it boring from start to finish, as the attraction is part of the tower I expected much more for the price of admission, the ride at the end was not an option for us as we... More

I'm a Merlin pass holder and live in Blackpool so we had finished at the tower but my son who is 5 was beginning to go in after lots of consideration and telling him it will be scary as dark etc he was still utterly convinced that he was going as was my 4 year old daughter (who I think... More

Went here in December, enjoyed it all, both funny and scary and the actors are engaging. The ride at the end is fun even though it's over quickly. Only criticism would be that it's pretty much the same as the London dungeons so as I had visited there, I knew what to expect in each room

Staff played their parts well but could make it scarier, more creeping up and putting people on edge. Plenty of laughs.
