superb fun for everyone in the group we joined. very interactive - there's no hiding in the shadows thats where you'll jump the most!.
This was a great experience for our group of 6. It started with the guy in character outside who kept our party busy while one of our party went to use toilets elsewhere since there are none in the building. There was no line to skip as such since we arrived around 10 in the morning. The actors were definitely into their roles. We had a good time and learned a few things on the way. It's good that you are told up front that the actors will not touch you, since they made some dramatic scary up close and personal appearances at times when the lights have gone out.
Note that once you've done this, you will not get anything big out of it a second time. It is a smaller, but more enthusiastic version of the London Dungeon.
Loved it! Genuinely scary but in a giggly way. Be warned,I thought that I was going to have to take my 12 year old out at one point as she was so freaked out!
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this experience. The staff at the entrance was wonderful and caring in explaining what to expect so that younger members of our group were comfortable entering the experience. The characters were excellent in portraying the roles. There was a good balance of expectation, unexpected and humor as well as facts about the history involved.
I took my grandchildren aged 10 and 9 and they thoroughly enjoyed the experience. I would recommend using priority booking as we went to the front of the queue and only had to wait a short time before we were in the dungeon.
I took my wife and two teenage daughters to The York Dungeon while on holiday in Yorkshire. We were looking for something to do on a cold, damp Summers day! This attraction was ideal, very informative well presented and fun. The actors who played various characters engaged the audience and kept everyone entertained. Maybe a little spooky in some places for very young children. Great fun.
A great day was had by all. The attraction gives you a brief history of the City of York from the Romans to present day. The actors get the crowd involved which adds to a great experience that will not be forgotten.
Funny, jumpy, good entertainment, crowd involving and thoroughly enjoyed it
Not really a dungeon. Actors were wonderful. Really involved the audience. learned all about torture.
An audience participation trip back to ye olde York. Great trip back in time. Cant say anything else without spoiling it. You will laugh and you will get the odd scare. I give this 5 stars :)
A great way to have fun and learn about York, or at least the gory details. Don't go if you are pregnant or at least listen to the advice.
Tour was good. Bit of a delay at start waiting for sufficient to begin. My boys are 9 and 7 and had heard about it from friends so I thought it may be too scary. They were scared but they loved it and at the end talked about it for hours to me and their friends. With the discount it was good value
This wasn't as much fun as the London Dungeon because it wasn't as interactive. Many of the rooms were done using video and static figures rather than actors so it wasn't as amusing but still worth doing. It was better organised than the London Dungeon because we didn't have to line up for as long once we passed the ticket collection point.

Very good tour even though I wasn't keen after I'd done it twice before. Did it this time so my Auntie could experience it, The tour had made a few tweaks and it was different from the previous visits. So all round I ended up enjoying it.
Quite a queue when we arrived so great to walk straight in..dungeons themselves excellent..been several times now and always something a little different..a little scary but overall amusing whilst teaching you some of history of York ..would recommend as also less expensive than some other things in the vicinity ...
We went to the venue with proof of purchase on our iphone as we were instructed by Viator. We were booking this event from our hotel room and obviously did not have access to a blue tooth printing device. Not that we asked the hotel if one was available as Viator had instructed that e receipt would be accepted. When we arrived at the venue, there was an issue in only having the e receipt and they wanted a printed copy! Had to wait until the "boss" was contacted and confirmed that we could continue but initially denied access. A bit misleading causing embarrassment and stress.
