Where screams come true
LONDON DUNGEON LAUNCHES SCREAMFEST FOR OCTOBER
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.”
