“When you first find out you are going to the London Dungeons with a group of students you are filled with extra dread...well, you should be.

It's suddenly not about whether you will be scared or not by the vicious variety of scenes but how your body (and voice) might uncontrollably behave when you are.

No teacher wants to turn in a split second from the demon drill master to the shrill, screaming scaredy-cat.

Fortunately for me I was able to hold on to my dignity or at least conceal it from the 43 students I took round the attraction. The first test of the shaking lift was passed with ease. The second hurdle of the gunpowder explosion was 'windy' but not gail force. I didn't lose my head in Sweeney Todd's barber shop and whilst the knife attack in a lightening storm had me reaching for a stiff drink, that was solely down to the Ten Bells Pub setting - honest.

I would like to claim that was where my story - and this review - ended. Unfortunately, that is not the case. Unable to choose the door to freedom thanks to the fear of taunts from students, I gripped my brave facade tightly around my own neck and entered the Newgate Gallows.

Remember that shrill scream I mentioned? So do all the students who sat next to me on the drop-ride; they have reminded me of it every day since.

Fear exposed but well worth it for the shared experience.”
