The London Dungeon Review May 2015


I'm not going to put a long detailed review as my previous review as all in all, not a whole lot has changed in the two years since then. But, a few things have been tightened up and changed around.

First of all, they've fixed the insane queuing system that they had before. Previously, you had to go through (potentially) three different lines in order to get the payment desk! Now, the desk is right at the front, which has no doubt helped reduce the queue lines. I visited the London Dungeon four times in three days!!... the longest wait I had was about 15 minutes. Far better than the hour and a half from my previous visit!

 Inside the Dungeon, the first change you'll notice is that the boat ride has been tightened up a bit. You now get the full Brian Blessed speech, as well as a few more effects and the odd jump scare or two. I still prefer the original, first instalment at Tooley Street though, but sadly that's long gone.

The next and biggest change is the "landing" area which has a full show, the "Gong Farmer" has now gone and has been replaced with a new show, detailing some of the execution methods used by Henry VIII (boiling alive gets a mention for example) and the set itself has changed to include plenty of heads on spikes. After that, nothing else has really changed sadly. There's still a lot of long walks through corridors and up stairs,  all barely dressed with plain, black walls and void areas. I mentioned this in a Trip Advisor review and they said that "blood and gore" is an area which they are moving away from, so I'm not expecting this to change. It kind of defeats the whole point of the place really. But, it's still a fun hour and 20 minutes or so.

 The actors are all excellent. Only one actress on my very last visit let the side down as i felt that she was more going through the lines rather than truly getting into the part. You could tell she didn't like performing her particular role as she seemed somewhat bored. But despite this one particular person, the actors are all of a very high standard.

There was a few jump scares here and there, but nothing too heart stopping. However, I would still recommend a visit to the London Dungeons as it is an entertaining experience.

4/5 stars for the experience and overall fun factor.
2/5 in the fear/scare factor as there just isn't enough in there to scare anyone older than 12.
