It’s 1840s London and a criminal network of ‘resurrection men’, notorious for making a less-than-honest living digging up the dead, are prowling the capital’s cemeteries for fresh corpses.
Run like a factory production line, these criminal entrepreneurs mass source bodies to sell to hospitals for research. Like a fine cut of meat, the rarer the specimen, the greater the bounty. But, be warned, when demand outstrips supply these charlatans may even kill for a body to sell – be sure to keep your wits about you!
On entry to the Dungeon, guests will find themselves in an East London grave yard, guarded by a watchperson, bent on interrogating everyone in their path about the recent grave robberies. Once inside the depths of the Dungeon guests will encounter John Bishop, the enterprises’ leader, who will reveal the secrets of the trade and deal unsuspecting guests, a ‘donor’ card. During this disturbing encounter, guests will be ordered to scratch their card to reveal their fate. Those with ‘full body’ cards will be eligible for a live dissection in the Doctor’s surgery.
For those with bodies still intact 1000 years of London’s murky past lies in store with more murderous villains and rogues, from Jack the Ripper, to Sweeney Todd. But remember crime does not pay and in the Court Room, The Right Honorable Lord Wendy Farqhuar, will be preparing to condemn any suspected body snatchers to meet their fate on the exhilarating Drop Dead drop ride.
We strongly recommend booking ahead to avoid horrible disappointment on the day, but visitors beware, death lies behind these doors!
