I just turned 9! To celebrate me, dad and three friends were lucky enough to go to the London Dungeon
Me and my friends were creeped out from the moment we stepped inside. The rooms were made of old rocks and there were big holes in the walls. Fake blood was spread on the floor. There were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling and when I walked past an old door, it began to shake and the lock started to rattle. The Dungeon was busy, but it was fine because the staff split us into small groups. In each room a new person (all dressed up) would tell us about their point in history, usually involving explosions, drops, moving chairs or fake poo.
My favourite bits were:
Jack the Ripper. I walked into The Ten Bells Pub, happy to have a rest and sit down. I wasn't happy for long because soon enough Jack the Ripper was standing right in front of me with a bloody knife. That really surprised me and my friend. I admit that I was a bit scared.
Henry's Wrath boat ride. The boat ride was my favourite part of the London Dungeon because :
- It was really loud
- It was in pitch black
- The boat went backwards
- I got really wet
Guy Fawkes gunpowder plot. I liked this part of the Dungeon because we got to meet Guy Fawkes - in the form of talking head, which was stuck on a stick! Even though he had no body or hands to light the fuse, 36 barrels of gunpowder still exploded right in front of me. When the explosion happened, the floor shook and I covered my ears as I heard an ear splitting BANG.
Drop dead drop ride. The drop ride was the final activity in the London Dungeon. My friends and I (dad was to scared to go on) took our seats on a big sort of sofa. We held onto the bar and then we went up right to the ceiling, before plummeting back down to the floor. I wasn't scared at all. Then they doubled the height of the drop. They opened up the floor, we went up and then we fell screaming into pitch black darkness.
I recommend the London Dungeons to anyone that is fearless. No scaredy cats allowed. I loved it, but I'm not sure my dad did.
The London Dungeon costs £17.50 per adult and £15.95 per child (if booked online, which is cheaper than paying at the door).
