York Dungeons is an animated waxworks museum depicting tortures through the ages—not for the fainthearted. Follow the gruesome guides on a tour of York's plague-ridden streets as they were in the 14th century and watch out for the rats, the carriers of the plague. See Dick Turpin, England's most famous highwayman, awaiting the hangman's noose. Hear him boasting of his adventures with Black Bess and then witness his last moments before his death by hanging. Learn about the phantom Roman Legion that will continue to haunt this city for all eternity as they have done for the last 2000 years.
This is a great place if you like to be scared silly! We never knew what was coming next. I literally had to drag the kids with me as they were so scared - but they loved it at the same time. Its a bit gruesome - no very gruesome and I wouldn't take kids under about 9. The actors were brilliant.
Visited York Dungeon last weekend using our York Passes - for £28 for two days it gets you into 28 of Yorks top attractions saving you a fortune as York Dungeons is £13.00 per person but after visiting would still pay the entrance fee. The actors were brilliant especially the girl at the start telling the plague story, she made a bee line for me straight away and frightened me to death - in a funny way. The highlight was the court room it was hilarious fun. Overall a fantastic experience very frightening and very funny!!!Haven't been to London Dungeons so I can't really compare the two but you wouldn't be disappointed with York!!!
Initially we thought expensive but when you get inside you apreciate the work thats been put into this attraction. The overall experience was brill and absolutely frightening! The real people were excellent and the shocks kept coming.
I had to keep telling myself its only pretend!!
A great attraction. A must go when you are in York!
Do not take in this attraction by yourself - it might just be too much. Far from some animatronic haunted house, this is a full scale fright fest where things that go bump in the night actually jump out at you.
Or run at you screaming waving battle axes.
And then give you a gruesome history lesson. Though don't take the kids. It could give them nightmares for decades.
The only letdown is how expensive the place is. But the actors inside are worth every penny so hopefully the high admission price makes it into their wages.
