 How long do tours last?

The tours last approximately 90 minutes no matter what time you enter.

What's the best time to visit?

Good question. We love a dark Halloween night ourselves, but for the rest of the year there's just one thing you need to remember. Like any amazingly funny, brilliantly designed and (ha ha) executed attraction... we are very popular. Our guests love us and tend to come back time and time again.

So... make it easy on yourself. BOOK A TICKET IN ADVANCE. That way you:

  • Get to visit when YOU want
  • Know that your place is reserved
  • AND you will get the best available price & save up to 30%
  • Have more fun and less stress - make the most of your day on the Southbank!

Right. Does that make sense? Great, so you know what you have to do. The best way to be sure you have time is to grab a ticket in advance.

Merlin Annual Pass Holders

If you are planning on visiting over the holiday period from the 1st April – 21st April things will be a little different. 

When you arrive, you will as normal join the queue to get in, however when the queue starts to build, rather than waiting in line the team will issue you a ticket for the first available 15 timeslot to return.   At the specified time you can return and gain access to the attraction by showing the team at the door both your Merlin Annual Pass and ticket we issued.

 Whilst it is inevitable there may be a small queue to secure your time, and there will always be a short wait in our preshow area we hope to see a significant reduction in the time you queue – and that in turn this will really improve your visit. 

Due to the popularity of the attraction in holiday periods, we recommend arriving as early in the day as possible to secure your preferred timeslot and avoid disappointment.  If in the unlikely event that we are unable to give you the timeslot you require on that day, we will book you into a timeslot on another day of your choice.

Standard Passes are not valid during bank holidays, throughout August or from the 30th October - 31st October 2014.

“Well after 2 1/2 hours of queuing didn't feel up to the attraction in the end but how I was wrong. We hold standard annual passes and had one pre booked ticket for my daughters friend so had to que in the general que not the priority que they should get rid of priority queuing and just have all admissions the same as the rate of priority to general admissions was 3 to 1 that's why it took sooooooooo loooooonnnng . Once inside the attraction was great all the actors were very professional and the scripts were great and the group we were in and the people they chose to take part threw a few curve balls at them so they had to adlibe and coped very well was funny too. The scare element was just about right even for the younger folk in all an enjoyable experience but all queuing should be general admission s and no fast track every was moaning xxg”
