This year The London Dungeon is promising its biggest, best and boldest Halloween season yet as it raises the curtain on a lavish new pumpkin-filled Halloween production in its new home in County Hall, next to the EDF Energy London Eye. AND following a record breaking run in 2012 the attraction is extending the Halloween revelries to a whole six weeks of scary fun!
Halloween revellers can meet the fiendish Sweeney Todd, with his evil ‘pumpkin pie making’ Mrs Lovett, get up close and personal with Jack the Ripper, Guy Fawkes, Henry VIII and a vast supporting cast of historical characters bringing 1000 years of authentically putrid London history to life. PLUS expect some stunning special effects, edge of your seat surprises and two exiting thrill rides. AND as it's Halloween there will be additional scares and laughs thrown in throughout the attraction including The London Dungeon’s own Halloween home ‘brew’ and a ghastly trick or treat lolly for every guest – will it be a Chupa Chups or a revolting insect lolly?
“The Dungeon is conveniently located next to the London Eye and Thames River cruises. It is also a short walk along the South bank to the Globe Theatre and The Clink Prison tour. Our family loved the Dungeon experience. In the beginning it has a Disney Land feel as the queue is full of entertaining surprises and spooky music and sounds. But when the tour begins, the Dungeon blows any Disney experience out of the water. It includes several rides, a dozen live actors who interact with visitors, lots of bawdy jokes, and a little English history thrown in. The scary moments did not involve a lot of special effects, but that made them much more effective. You get so much for your money at the Dungeon, too, as the tour lasts over an hour and the actors are fabulous.”Patricia See more reviews...
