“Where do you go on your first date. The beach for a nice romantic stroll? No, silly. Why the Edinburgh Dungeons, of course. Not to mention it was a long distance relationship. This was the first day we met, in the flesh *mm, flesh*. If there was any reason to feel brave, it would be today. I didn't want to look like a coward in front of my guy, nor the torturer or anyone else *gulp*. Sawney Beans girls wanted Steven. Fair enough, he had been cowering for half the experience - guess who the brave one was now? I don't think anything has made my blood pump around my body so much like the drop ride did. Boy was it such a shock. Double points for the Dungeons on being gory yet historical!

Two years later, we decided to visit the Dungeons again and see how well we could survive. People say there's only a certain amount of times you can do something before it becomes tedious and boring. Well the Dungeons never let us down on that. We went in the month of October. It's understandable why it's their favorite time of the year *evil laugh* A few of the rooms had changed, like the anatomy theatre, which we got quite the surprise from someone (I won't spoil it - I promise!) and especially, The Street of Sorrow, which gave some *peasants* quite the 'treatment'!

I couldn't recommend the Edinburgh Dungeons enough to everyone. It's something you have to do in the city if you're visiting. Just make sure you bring a spare change of underwear if you're a total jessie...”
