Where screams come true


Ruislip & Eastcote & Northwood Gazette - - News -

GET ready for scary thrills and spine-tin­gling chills as The Lon­don Dungeon launches Screamfest next week.

The South Bank tourist at­trac­tion, where it is pretty much Hal­loween all-year round, will turn the scares up a notch for the whole of Oc­to­ber, start­ing on Mon­day.

Those who dare en­ter will be treated to fear-drenched sto­ries and scream-in­duc­ing shocks while hear­ing tales of Lon­don’s dark­est his­tory.

Darker and danker than ever be­fore, those brave enough will need to scam­per past soul­less skele­tons and ven­ture into rat­in­fested cells as they jour­ney through Lon­don’s per­ilous past in a bid to es­cape with their lives in­tact.

With 20 haunt­ing tales and two thrilling rides, guests will come face to face with Lon­don’s scari­est and most no­to­ri­ous char­ac­ters in­clud­ing Jack the Rip­per, Sweeney Todd, The Plague Doc­tor and The Tor­turer.

Take on Lon­don’s only un­der­ground wa­ter ride as you sail to cer­tain death down the Thames, dodge the grasp of an es­caped con­vict from New­gate Prison and pre­pare for a ‘hangy’ end­ing as you plum­met into the depths on the ex­hil­a­rat­ing ver­ti­cal free fall drop ride, Drop Dead.

Plus, ex­clu­sively for Screamfest, a new Jack the Rip­per show sees guests plunged into com­plete dark­ness on the streets of Whitechapel, and the spine-tin­gling séance re­turns, invit­ing

guests to sit round a Ouija board and sum­mon the spir­its.

An­drew Walker, gen­eral man­ager for The Lon­don Dungeon, said: “Hal­loween is the most thrilling time of the year for The Lon­don Dungeon, and this time we’re go­ing big­ger and bet­ter than ever be­fore. With the most sto­ries, scares and spe­cial ef­fects we’ve had in 40 years, Screamfest will with­out a doubt leave our guests scream­ing for more.”
