The Blackpool Tower Dungeon, Blackpool

4.3
The Blackpool Tower Dungeon is a uniquely thrilling attraction that'll take you back to the past's most horrible bits. See, hear, smell and feel the city’s darkest stories as they come to life before your eyes.

As you are taken back in time, you’ll come face-to-face with frighteningly funny characters, from Torturers and Judges to ruthless smuggler Captain Johnson and the infamous Pendle Witch. Choose your allegiance and decide if you are loyal or be denounced as a traitor in the Wars of the Roses. As you listen to the characters’ stories, you'll feel yourself drawn into another world, where the boundaries between reality and the past blur.

Be warned - as you make your way through the Dungeon, surprises are lurking in the darkness and will keep your senses on high alert as you anticipate what's waiting around the next corner…

  • The Blackpool tower dungeon was very entertaining, thrilling and a great experience. The actors really embodied their characters, the staff polite and helpful. At roughly 60 minutes long, the experience felt neither too short, nor like it dragged on.
  • Very interesting place and reasonable price. The actors are very good. Be prepared to be picked on but it's all in good fun.
  • Wow, what a great show. This is a must on any visit to Blackpool, we visited with a four year old who really enjoyed it - we all did. The tour is made up of a number of mini shows depicting various events from the history of Blackpools surrounding area. The shows are very interactive and as guests, be prepared to be involved! I understand that the shows change from time to time, so I will be visiting again in the future.
  • Great place. Excellent actors. Not as scary as I thought it would be but was still a great experience would definitely visit again.
  • A highlight of the tower I think. To be fair, I did work here as a scare actor a few years back! It’s a great place to go, scary on the surface but really it’s about having fun and about half way round, the rooms within start getting silly rather than gory or too scary. Just go along with the ride! Best not to wear anything branded with anything to do with Yorkshire...you’ll get picked on! Ha. The more you just go with it, the more the actors will give you a unique experience. A top fun thing to do.
