Loved being frightened by your actors even when you think you're 'cool with it and expecting the next fright... they catch you unaware' Most awesome anniversary find. Thanks for the great experience. :)

Thrilling but quite time limited activity for a rainy day when other plans were cancelled. Lots of screaming and frights. Only wish it lasted a bit longer, for the price of admission....More

Genuinely good fun but they certainly make you jump when they touch your leg or shoulder or suddenly appear next to you! Pitch black & very eerie. Definitely not for the faint hearted!
