Things to do at London Dungeon review
The London Dungeon is a tourist attraction located close to the River Thames in London. It is mostly aimed at tweens, and teens, (and adults) but some older primary, children may be brave enough to visit. The experience is pretty full-on with 360-degree sets and griping storytelling featuring 19 interactive shows and 20 live actors. You can also expect special effects, stages, scenes and rides. Drop Dead is a drop ride that simulates being executed. Riders must be 1.4 metres and all riders must be able to sit upright and brace themselves against the ride forces. The ride is optional.
The other side is the Tyrant Boat Ride. You will experience darkness as you are taken on your final journey along the Thames to the Tower of London to meet your fate. Expect choppy waters, scurries of rats and a foul stench of sewage. Riders must be 1 metre tall and again is optional. Shows, with plenty of audience participation, include the Torture chamber, Guy Fawkes’ gunpowder plot, escape from the great fire of London and Mrs Lovett’s pie shop. Plus Sweeney Todd, Jack the Ripper, the Courtroom and more.
