Learn all about Lancashire's fascinating history in the most gruesome way
As soon as you step inside the Blackpool Tower Dungeons, it feels like you’ve stepped back 1000 years in time.
You're now awaiting your sentencing below the town's streets...
The Dungeons allows you to learn all about Lancashire's murky past with a 60-minute walkthrough experience to remember.
There are 11 scenes with 360-degree sets - all with creepy characters, gripping storylines, and out-of-this-world special effects. And did we mention one terrifying drop ride?
As well as having lots of fun, you'll learn a lot about the history and facts about the area.
The groups you're put in aren't too big, which really helps all guests feel involved.
Kids below eight may be too young for the attraction, however, it's up to parents to decide.
Let the journey begin
Meet the Jester who'll lure you into a false sense of security, before you step into the medieval lift.
Hear the cogs and chains groan as you descend further and further down.
You're now deep in the dungeons below Blackpool, where you'll begin your journey in the eerie darkness of the Chapel at Lytham Priory.
Learn all about the War of the Roses and hear the monk tell you tales of ‘The Pool that is Black’.
Walk down the dark, narrow corridors where mystery lurks in the shadows and enter 1349 where the Doctor’s assistant will tell you all about the Black Death.
If you're wondering where the Doctor has gone, don’t worry - you'll soon find out...
Take a seat, why don't you?
One (un)lucky volunteer can help the Torturer demonstrate what punishment looked like as you enter the Torture Chamber of Lancaster Castle.
The walk-through is full of innuendos which makes it hilarious fun for all the family.
Next, it's time to face the Judge as he decides what crimes you're guilty of and will sentence you to escape the Labyrinth - a maze of the lost souls.
Beware though, the streets aren't safe anymore. And be sure to avoid the screams.
Be sentenced for your crimes!
If you've survived up to this point, it's time to test your bravery on the Drop Dead ride.
Be sentenced for your crimes at Lancaster Gaol before the noose is ready for you to face the drop, as your journey ends on a thrill faster than gravity.
Luckily, there's a camera perfectly positioned to capture everyone's screaming faces right as you drop - a perfect keepsake of the day!
If you’re not up to face the ride, don’t worry - you can skip it.
