We were all a little anxious about doing this attraction but we needn't have been - it was such good fun! Yes the theme is intended to scare you a bit but it's done with such fun that it's hilarious for the adults and children alike. My 11 year old daughter was really not keen but we set of forced...

As someone who is incredibly jumpy I was nervous about visiting the Blackpool Dungeon. After signing up for Merlin Annual passes in Jan, my friend thought it would be good to spend a day doing all the Merlin attractions in Blackpool, the Dungeon being one of them. I reluctantly agreed and went along today. The whole experience was amazing and... More

We've been many times and the Dungeons are (usually) a fantastic attraction. Scary, fun and a fantastic thrill ride in such a limited space. That said, although the actors were great today, the attraction seemed very bare and basic in terms of the scenery and decor. This was most noticeable in the entrance, mirror maze and drop ride; there used... More

2nd visit to the Blackpool dungeons, all the staff are excellent actors and really make this an enjoyable place to visit. 4D experience and scary for some at times, lots of public participation. Well worth a visit but book online or buy an attraction ticket to keep the costs down

i LOVED the Tower Dungeon! It was wonderful! It was so well themed! The groups were really small that the whole thing felt much more personal! The drop ride at the end is so much fun!

Although I though I thought the dungeon was ok the beginning put me off because the first actor spoke to a family like rubbish I think it was meant to be done in humour I spoke to the family and they felt belittled and I felt the same
