Have you ever visited London Dungeon? What did you think of it? Let other people know by posting your photos and writing a little review.
I think i was more scared the last time I had a sneeze. There was a few kids around who were scared but no adult is going to be scared by this, it's funny, that's what it is. There's a big sign outside saying "not recommended for those of a nervous disposition" and you think great, this is going to be good. but imagine a few waxworks with blood on their faces, or furry rats coming out of a barrel, and thats what this is. The only time i jumped was when a real person dressed up moved and scared the bejesus out of me because i thought he was a model, and if i was anywhere else i would probably have hit him. They've got a ride in there which was quite good i suppose. You sit in it and it takes you on a journey through London history, sort of like a ghost train at the fairground. That was quite good.
I can see kids liking this a lot more than the adults. When I went round with my children they were actually scared and jumped a few times, but of course we dont do that. And when the actors that are all dressed up try and interact with us we just get emabarrassed, but the kids like it. Those actors really ham it up. I must admit they are quite good at what they do -- as long as they do it away from me!
Some of things I actually thought were probably too gruesome for very young kids. There was one bit where you saw a man get his innards torn out. I wouldnt let my kids watch a movie with that in. But most of it is very mild. There are lost of waxworks of people with the plague and boils etc, and cages with some rats in. Some things are just plain rubbish -- like the room with all the funny mirrors in, like you see at the Fun Fair. How many "dungeons" have got mirrors in?
The rides at the end are okay, although one of them just uses cheap 3D glasses whilst they spin you in a chair. Once again, the kids seemed to enjoy it. But not me. Maybe I'm just getting old.
Hated it, and couldnt wait for it to end. If it wasn't for our kids who were begging to go, we would never have gone. It turned out to be too scary for my daughter, who I had to hold in my arms after the first few scenes, and not scary enough for my son, who was just bored. If you're an adult then you wont be scared at all, or even amused, as the acting is atrocious. I dont know how they have the cheek to charge what they do. We could have booked a room in a 5-star hotel for the price we paid, its a rip-off!
Had great time here yesterday, came to London just for this from the staff to the shows, everything was brilliant ,myself and grandaughter enjoyed it very much.would say not suitable for younger children though.
