Thank you too all the staff.”

Fantastic Staff!

“My friend and I went to York Dungeons last weekend. We had the most fantastic time due to the staff there. Firstly the photographer who was rather amused by the fact I specifically requested the sign declaring myself as a witch. The poor guy at the ticket desk who was on the top of his witty game sparring with us as he dropped the bottles of water on the floor. And then at the end the amazing staff in the shop and manning the photography stand who freely admitted that our pictures were the best they had seen (which they were). But also, who stood by and listened to the photos we wanted and told us to get another photo package which worked out cheaper but better for us (and with more pictures) and then shared funny stories of other customers. We had an absolutely amazing time- I had a Merlin Annual Pass when I was younger but York absolutely blew my socks off!! Definitely a trip to remember!”

awesomely terrifying experiance!!!! An absolute must for something fun and unique

“At the age of 30 I had not visited the York Dungeons, Fed up of the usual boring stuff for my children to do (cinema,bowling,trampolines) We wanted to do something different! Me my husband and our son and daughter came to the York dungeons on a wim, only just making the last tour! All I can say is wow!! what a truly fun and frightening experience we had!! My son and daughter were petrified (even I was quite jumpy haha!!) The actors and actresses are amazing and made the whole experience absolutely fantastic! With stories of the history characters and gruesome tales it truly was the best place we have all been in a fair while!! All four of us loved it and had an awesome time!! Massive props to all involved!!! definitely a must for anyone who wants to do something different, exciting and scary all at the same time!! well done guys!! well worth the money will definitely return when my younger two are old enough!!”

Should have worn brown pants!!!

“Visited with my son. Had no idea what to expect and wasn't disappointed. Action packed from start to finish. Didn't want it to end but not sure my nerves would have lasted much longer. Acting was excellent and they looked like they were enjoying scaring us too.”

Joanna

My day in the dungeon, by Joe age 9.

“My day in the dungeon was fantastic, the actor at the beginning was really, really scary. I thought the plague was horrible, I certainly wouldn't like that on my skin, and you pulling my bits out. The bit with the man and the tankered was very good. You should be very careful where your standing in that room, because you don't know what will happen. It goes very dark and the man dissapears and it's very frightening. The executioner was completly mad, and we all got splattered in blood when he chopped someone's head off. It was very good and just like real life. I would like to go back one day because it was so good even my mum and dad were scared. The big babies haha.”

Amazing! best attraction in York

“Me and my girlfriend came to York Dungeon during our visit to the city and we were blown away!

I don't normally go for audience participation attractions but this one drew me in with it's horrific themes. I came to YORK DUNGEON as a reviewer for SNAKEBITE HORROR and I will be recommending that everyone must visit!

Keep up the gory work!!!”
