  • The terror tower was really scary even without the live actors. Takes about 10-15 minutes to get round. Right on the sea front it is ideal to visit during a day out. I would definetly recommend. 
  • Went in here for a laugh with my husband and 15 yr old son, husband very brave leading through like a trooper...son in the middle, slightly nervous, me behind, screaming like a girl......that was befo...  read more »
  • Very scary experience - plenty of stuff on the walls - live actors jump out behind you and infront of you too which is good. It is well-done and certainly scared my younger brother (age 10). Perhaps u...  read more »
  • I guess it depends what you're into? I liked it, wouldn't be in a hurry to go again it is very well done though for what it is.
  • it was creepy and also sorta funny, however a few things wernt working, for example in the ring bit we waited till the green light turned on, fully watched the TV and.......nothing happend. we then realised that just a head that was already up when we walked in. we then went on to the dracular part. we expected something to happen when the room went dark but nothing. we watched the dracular part about 5 times in a row because the light wouldnt turn green for the jurrasic park bit. we had been standing in the dracular bit for about 5 mins now and we guessed the light would never turn green so we walked into the jurrasic park bit stood there for 3 mins and again nothing happened. the bit with the man chasing you happened, then we went on to the aliens part and I dont know if something is supposed to happen in that part but lights flashed on the predator statue (I dont know if its supposed to move) and also the alien in the test-tube does nothing, however it does have greasy finger marks all over it. I expected one of the head crabs to move but again nothing. still, despite all its flaws it was very enjoyable. I just think you need some better props/animatronics and possibly update some of the sets with horror games or movies.
  • Went here today with the wife and our two kids,it was brilliant,the wife was screaming & the kids were terrified but at the same time we all really enjoyed it. If you visit scarbourough anytime well worth a visit.I spent all the time laughing at the wife & kids reactions,as i had read about it on here so knew what to expect. I am still laughing now as i write this. Well worth the £12 .00 for a family ticket
  • Good scare house, liked the random scream character turning up in different rooms as good too. Recommend a visit if your in the area.
  • Average... The woman at the desk taking the money was also the ghost, so that spoilt that. They had a traffic light system there, so a light would go green and you would proceed, so not very realistic.Spoiler---------------- The dinosaur was unrealistic and slow.Only once did I get a shock when a ghost in a neumatic mechanism came out behind me.Bottom line, get a ride on one of the speedboats THEY give you an adrenaline rush...
