The London Dungeon by Robert


I just turned 9! To celebrate me, dad and three friends were lucky enough to go to the London Dungeon

Me and my friends were creeped out from the moment we stepped inside. The rooms were made of old rocks and there were big holes in the walls. Fake blood was spread on the floor. There were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and when I walked past an old door, it began to shake and the lock started to rattle. The Dungeon was busy, but it was fine because the staff split us into small groups. In each room a new person (all dressed up) would tell us about their point in history, usually involving explosions, drops, moving chairs or fake poo.

My favourite bits were:

Jack the Ripper. I walked into The Ten Bells Pub, happy to have a rest and sit down. I wasn't happy for long because soon enough Jack the Ripper was standing right in front of me with a bloody knife. That really surprised me and my friend. I admit that I was a bit scared.

Henry's Wrath boat ride. The boat ride was my favourite part of the London Dungeon because :


Guy Fawkes gunpowder plot. I liked this part of the Dungeon because we got to meet Guy Fawkes - in the form of talking head, which was stuck on a stick! Even though he had no body or hands to light the fuse, 36 barrels of gunpowder still exploded right in front of me. When the explosion happened, the floor shook and I covered my ears as I heard an ear splitting BANG.


Drop dead drop ride. The drop ride was the final activity in the  London Dungeon. My friends and I (dad was to scared to go on) took our seats on a big sort of sofa. We held onto the bar and then we went up right to the ceiling, before plummeting back down to the floor. I wasn't scared at all. Then they doubled the height of the drop. They opened up the floor, we went up and then we fell screaming into pitch black darkness.

I recommend the London Dungeons to anyone that is fearless. No scaredy cats allowed. I loved it, but I'm not sure my dad did.

The London Dungeon costs £17.50 per adult and £15.95 per child (if booked online, which is cheaper than paying at the door).

Henry's Wrath boat ride. The boat ride was my favourite part of the London Dungeon because :

  • It was really loud
  • It was in pitch black
  • The boat went backwards
  • I got really wet

Guy Fawkes gunpowder plot. I liked this part of the Dungeon because we got to meet Guy Fawkes - in the form of talking head, which was stuck on a stick!

Sounds like so much fun! I can't wait to take my daughter but I think the drop dead ride sounds a little too scary for me! I am a bit of a wuss!! :)

Oh it sounds like they had a great day, I'm a bit of scaredy cat so I'm sure I wouldn't be able to go on the rides :-)

Me too! And that is why his dad took him, and not me :)

I'm also a scaredy cat (but not too scared to admit it!)

He really did. That child loves to be scared...

Bloody knives, locks rattling and Jack the Ripper: Isn't it odd how being scared can give you a buzz? Adrenalin, I suppose. I prefer to get my hit via a coffee these days but at your age, Robert, I was known to sneak out of my room and dump myself in front of the TV to watch horror-type shows. (I don't advise it by the way. I didn't sleep a lot during those years).

Now I would love the thrill of the London Dungeons but I think the twins (6 in July) are still a little bit too small for this, one day though I shall take them, face to face with Jack the Ripper does sound scary indeed!

Robert this is a great review and I'm glad you had a good time but I'm too much of a scaredy cat to go there!

I HATE COFFEE. Isn't it odd how drinking a horrible drink can give you a buzz!

I think you are right that they are a little too young to enjoy the London Dungeon but maybe one day!

It's a few years since we have been so some of these scary things are new to me. I can see why your mum bottled out!
Another fab review, Robert :-))

Wow I admire you all - I'd be far too scared to go into the Dungeon!

I love London but we've never been to the LOndon Dungeons - it's def on my list!

 
At 19 May 2014 at 11:46 , Blogger Agata Pokutycka said...

I've never been. We almost visited it few times but always back off at the last minute... I think I am a bit too scared to go

I haven't dared take my kids... I was terrified when I went lol! Mind you, they are probably brave than I was.

Nothing like a review of kids day out from the kid himself. Good job.

Love this! I have walked past so many times at work and not really thought about it. Looks like a great day out with soooo much to explore.
