Blackpool: Just arrived and time to face the Blackpool Dungeon & Drop Ride
So today we are taking The Guide Liverpool out for the day and you are coming along with us for the ride. As you know we LOVE Liverpool so this is all a little bit scary for us, but where better to have our first official Guide Liverpool day trip than to our favourite seaside resort.
We are in Blackpool experiencing all of the Blackpool Tower attractions, and trust us there is lots of them. We have been given our Blackpool Tower BIG tickets and are good to go.
Coming up we feed sharks at the Sea Life Centre, mix with the stars at Madame Tussauds, have a tango lesson in that famous ballroom, meet the clowns in the Blackpool Tower Circus and of course head up to the iconic Blackpool Tower Eye – all available on your BIG ticket
First up though let’s get gruesome – The Blackpool Tower Dungeon!
The Blackpool Tower Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages, scenes and a ride in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious fun and it’s sometimes a bit scary.
It is one of the must-see signature attractions of the Blackpool resort. With a full cast of brilliant actors, 10 shows, rich sets, special effects and an exciting drop ride, it’s a 60 minute journey through 1000 years of Lancashire’s murky past. You and your companions walk through the Dungeon, moving from show to show, guided by our professional, theatrical actors.
The shows are based on real Lancastrian history and legends (minus the boring bits). You’ll get up close and personal with sinister characters including Captain Johnson from the notorius Skippool smuggling gang and Alizon Devize, the infamous Pendle Witch.
It’s a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, full on authenticity and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you’ll pass through Lytham priory, see and feel the effects of the plague, visit Lancaster Castles fearsome torture chamber… and experience the War of the Roses. Believe us, it’s better than sightseeing or a boring history lesson!
