Great day. We do not speak French though 😂
Hi. Unfortunately I've got to cancel my pre paid booking due to new covid restrictions. Who do I contact please? The email address doesn't seem to be working. Thanks.
Good afternoon, I would like to book a ticket to come to the dungeons next Monday or Tuesday. I can see that I can book a ticket through the website; however, I need to arrange a carers ticket as well for my companion. Do I need to ring up and arrange this to ensure there is enough space when we visit? Thanks you.
Booked for my birthday for halloween can't wait to be scared 🙃 🙂 🤪
I want to buy tickets for tomorrow Site wont load properly to book
hi was wondering how you guys were my sister is adamant she wants to come to the dungeons can you please keep us updated as we are coming off lockdown and tell us when you are reopening
CALLING ALL 70's & 80's CHILDREN! Usborne brought back "World of the Unknown: Ghosts" thanks to a similar petition and Reece Shearsmith so I thought I'd try and get that other terrifying classic "The Usborne Guide To The Supernatural World" republished as its currently only available 2nd hand for silly money. These books combined with packs of Horror Top Trumps are some of my favourite memories. If any of you remember this book with the fondness and terror that I do then please sign and fingers crossed we might be able to introduce it to the next generation!
Well recommend it very scary and very fun to be there loved it
Thanks for the memories
Is this appropriate for a 5 year old?
