Dungeons Uncovered

Visitors are placed in the centre of the market square in a pen; a witch burning is welcome entertainment. Dim-effect lighting adds to the set to create tension and fear with added sound effects.

Everybody is suspected by the Witch Pricker, who will pick his victim carefully - it could be anyone! Many special effects have been added to give the illusion of a Witch being burnt at the stake – you can feel the heat!

“Can't wait for the York Dungeon to re-open! I went a couple of years ago with some friends and we all absolutely loved it, was so much fun. Will definitely be visiting again once it re-opens.”
