Absolute Rubbish - complete waste of Time and Money!! by Gertie
I wish we’d just stayed at the pub. We’d purchased the tickets online, so we didn’t have to wait in line, but we did have to wait about 20 minutes for enough people to show up to qualify as a ‘group’.
The last people in were a couple with a young infant. I was worried for the child’s mental well-being, but also worried it would cry the whole time and ruin the experience. Turns out that the baby saved it from being complete shite because it giggled at all of the ‘scary’ things so I at least had a bit of a laugh.
When we entered the facilities they had my friend stand in the stockade and I had to hold the rubber axe and pretend to chop off her head. This was done with the hopes we would fork over additional money to purchase this photograph as a souvenir. Didn’t happen.
Then on to the waiting room, where we waited.
And waited some more.
Finally we were off to the Dungeons!
We were ushered into a mock 17th century court room and forced to sit through badly scripted trials utilising members from our group.
After being warned for the second time that the actors won’t touch us so don’t touch them, we were moved to another room to another actor spouting insults (oooh, scary) and demonstrating various torture techniques by once again using members from our groups.
On to the highly malodorous actor who shouted a lot and played with the plastic body parts. Or maybe that was the autopsy doctor? We had a 30 second boat tour admist more shouting and sniffing characters and then the best part of getting into the ride to simulate dropping from the hangman’s noose. This is where they took yet another photo, available for purchase of course.
Save your money and book the City of the Dead Graveyard tour instead (John, the guide, is fantastic).
