“My sister and I visited last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. We were wandering round in the rain looking for something to do and thought why not. When you first enter you get your photo taken either in the stocks or as the executioner. You then wait for the tour to begin; there were 14 in our tour. You go into the court and the judge was great we all had a laugh; he picks out three "criminals". The three on our tour were good sports who played along especially Shirley the big girlie who was actually Chris from Glasgow. All the actors were great, really enthusiastic and made it real for us, the boat ride was a laugh. Not one for rides but I'm glad I went on the "final drop". You get fastened into your seat and get taken in the air as the executioner reads out your sentence, then all the lights go out and you drop. When you get out of the dungeon there is a room where the photos of your ride are shown on tv screens. My face was a pure look of terror, my sister and I couldn't stop laughing. I would recommend it. Thank you”
