This Easter, come to the London Dungeon for our "Bad Eggs" trail, the alternative Easter Egg hunt! Join the hunt for your chance to win a Merlin Annual Pass (and to get your sweet treat of course, it’s Easter after all!)
To welcome you on the trail we’ve called on our all new cast member, the fearsome Eggcecutioner.
He is mean and merciless in his quest to decapitate eggs. Taking a break from his regular job beheading ‘bad egg’ traitors and lowlifes, the egg decapitator extraordinaire will be meeting and greeting visitors and demonstrating his highly tuned skills on thousands of eggs, using a variety of tools – axes, swords and whatever else comes to hand!
The Easter fun will continue throughout the attraction with a trail of themed 'bad eggs' that will be scattered across the many chambers of The Dungeon. See if you can find them all and mark them on your Bad Eggs card!
All successful Egg Hunters will get a sweet treat at our shop, and will be entered into a prize draw for a chance to win a Merlin Annual Pass worth £159!
“Come face-to-face with some of history’s most notorious characters in an evening you and your mum pals will never forget
Guy Fawkes will make sure you have an explosive time! It’s that evening you and your buddies have been planning for a long time – the legendary girls' night out –but where do you go?
While the children are safely at home with dad, why not opt for something a bit different and go back in time at The London Dungeon (now situated in South Bank opposite the London Eye) on one of their ‘Late’ nights.
You'll get to journey though London’s vivid, and sometimes dark, past, which is brought to life with a mix of rides, charismatic actors and detailed props.
The experience starts with the obligatory group comedy picture - one of you in the stocks ready to be beheaded while the rest of your camp is holding axes ready to do the deed.
Moving through the dark times of Henry VIII, having to prove you’re not a traitor in court, to Jack the Ripper stalking you through a desolate Whitechapel, you never know what’s going to come next which makes the surprises even more chilling.
Some of the highlights for us were getting to have a bit of one-on-one time with the off-the-wall Mrs Lovett, experiencing Sweeney Todd’s Barber shop up close and getting to see what life was really like during the plague.
You can see that a lot of money has been invested in the new setting for The London Dungeons to make it a scarier experience (for adults and children), but it’s the comedy that comes from the actors that makes the experience memorable.
Rides included in the experience give an extra adrenaline rush, from flipping chairs, free-falls and in-the-dark boat rides. Bravery is rewarded at the end with the opportunity to have a stiff drink at the dungeon tavern where a jester and some notorious characters will come and say hi.
Here at MFM HQ, we rate this a five star experience for mums who want to let their hair down, or if you children are brave types then they’ll more than enjoy getting stuck into some of London’s most gruesome moments.
