Rides in London Dungeon
- Extremis Drop Ride to Hell
After you had been sentenced for a heinous crime, you could have been sentenced to be hanged. This ride will give you that falling sensation as you plunge into the darkness as the trap door opens.
- Boat Ride to Hell
This will take you into the dark and ignite your fears of drowning and falling backwards.
- Labyrinth of the Lost
Experience the horror of being lost in the dark. Shadowy figures appear. Mirrored walls show reflections that will disturb even the strongest willed persons. Dare you enter and, if you do, will you ever find your way out?
- Sweeney Todd
Remember the demon barber who murdered his customers? Dare you sit in the seat and experience the horror of waiting for that haircut, or should we say throat cut? Will you end up in a meat pie?
- The Great Plague
It's 1665 and the Black Death is all around the streets of London. Wander around at your peril. See the victims and their horrific symptoms of boils and puss. "Bring out your dead" was a common cry. See what it was like in those awful times.
