The escape room is worth the extra cash

We paid a bit extra to do the escape room and loved it.

In our own words...

Lancashire’s history? It’s ‘orrible – believe us

If getting plunged headfirst into 1000 years of grisly history sounds like your kind of thing, this is the spot for you. Lancashire’s horrible – sorry, ‘orrible – past is brought (back) to life with live actors and immersive sets that are bound to get your heart racing.

Ever wondered what gruesome remedies victims of the Black Plague used to treat themselves? Or what barbaric punishments The Torturer subjected treacherous peasants to in the dark depths of Lancaster Castle? You’ll see (and smell) it all here.

Try to avoid a haunting from Meg Shelton, the infamous Witch of Woodplumpton, before giving the eerie Pendle woods a visit where you’ll be sentenced for your crimes. The verdict? Jump on the Drop Dead ride to find out. The clue’s in the name.

If you’re celebrating a birthday, stag do or hen night, book The Escape Room and see if you’ve got the guts and guile to slip out of the iron grip of The Executioner. Before you leave, settle your nerves with snacks and a drink at The Red Lion. Make it a double.

More about your day out at...

Blackpool Tower Dungeon

The recommended age is 12 years and older, but if your kids are particularly brave, they’re welcome to come too – as long as they’re 5 or over. Anyone under 15 must be accompanied by an adult (18+). If you’ve got a nervous disposition, you might be better choosing one of the Tower’s less fear-inducing attractions.

The Drop Dead ride has a minimum height restriction of 1.4m and isn’t suitable for pregnant women.

The venue is usually open from 10:30am - 5pm on Monday - Friday and 10:30am - 6pm on Saturdays and Sundays, but this varies depending on the time of year so it's best to check the official website.

I’s located right at the bottom of The Blackpool Tower so you can’t miss it. If you’re driving, follow the M6 to Junction 32, take the M55 to Junction 4 and follow the big brown signs for Town Centre attractions. It’s just 10 minutes’ walk from Blackpool North train station and most city buses stop here too.
