Descent

Descent

And so your journey begins. Descend into the heart of the Dungeon in this medieval lift. Hear the grinding cogs and chains as the winches strain. Don't worry, it hardly ever falls!

Meet the Lift Leper

Join our resident Lift Jester as you descend. This cheerful fellow will prepare you for 1000 years of gloriously horrible history. It all starts here!

What's that? You hear the sounds of water lapping against the shore? With luck you have arrived safely at Thames river docks.

What you'll learn

  • Whether the lift actually works.
  • If Leprosy is really that contagious.
  • Who's the most scared (and likely to be picked on!)

Descent is the perfect opening to your Dungeon experience, funny, suspenseful and beautifully played. If the Dungeon was a movie Descent would be the title sequence.

Amazing!

“The whole tour was amazing and descent was the perfect way to start it! The lift was very realistic and scary at the same time! I thought it was the perfect way to start an amazing tour!”

Going Down!

“Descent was a great start to the attraction.I was very suprised by the amount of work put into the special fx (moving floor boards,chains and ropes moving up and down! The actor was very amusing calling us all traitors. I was also suprised that they actually pump the smells of london into each attraction in Descent it smelled honestly of rat poo and wee! Descent really gets you pumped with excitement before you continue on to the boat ride!”

Terrifying!

“I didn't think the start of the dungeons would be that scary but I was wrong! Even when we were waiting to go in the actors were jumping out at us then there were flashing lights in the elevator at the start and the actor jumped out at us and we were all screaming! Great start to the tour!”

Katie

Suspense!

“I was very impressed with the entrance to the dungeon. Descent really sets the tone for the journey ahead of us. The lift leper filled us with suspense and excitement but also had us terrified! Amazing!”
