A visit to the dungeons
The dastardly Dungeons family is spread through Europe, festering in London, York, Edinburgh, Warwick, Hamburg and Amsterdam. Within the bowels of each are interactive attractions, displaying the forgotten past in all its gruesome glory. Each Dungeon depicts the horrific history of its hometown, giving the visitor a terrifying account of actual historical events, warts and all. The Dungeons give each visitor a tongue in cheek look at the bits of history that are left out in the classroom. Read on to take a virtual tour or even visit yourself, if you’re brave enough
The Hamburg Dungeon
This is a place where the past comes alive to trap each visitor in the dark depths of history through spine chilling tales and twisted fables. The Dungeon dissects the bits of history that are left out in the classroom. Read on to take a tour or even visit yourself, if you’re brave enough.
The Elevator of Horror
Our visitors begin their journey by entering a rickety lift, assuming it will take them to the starting point of the tour. They are unaware that the lift will plummet at any given moment; will the beginning really be the end for our guests?
The Library of Dark History
As the elevator spits our guests out into the dark and musty library, silence surrounds them. Figures move swiftly amongst the shadows, the stories within the book’s pages are coming back to life as tormenting nightmares.
Our guests are then lured into the torture chamber, which showcases Hamburg’s past toe curling techniques of medieval punishment. The Torturer describes, with relish, how in these dark times certain excruciating techniques were used to ‘make people talk’. He will try to tempt visitors to step up and experience the techniques for themselves in a dark demonstration of the most torturous chapter in Hamburg’s history.
1842 – Hamburg is burning!
It is 1842 and the flames rage through Hamburg destroying everything that they touch. Witness the terrifying event that changed the face of Hamburg forever, hear the screams
as people flee from their homes … will you make it out alive?
The Labyrinth of the Lost
In 16th century Hamburg being poor was seen as a self inflicted evil. Those living in poverty were condemned as idle and put to hard labour to redeem their souls. Filthy workhouses open to imprison peasants and put them through gruelling, back breaking work in order to save them from an eternity in Hell. Our visitors now find themselves in these squalid surroundings; can they find their way out through the maze of twists and turns?
Pirate Scourge of the Northern Seas
From the 16th century to the 13th century, and the seas are ruled by lawless, brutal pirates, being outlawed in every country the pirates must scrape a living through mercilessly attacking and pillaging any ship that crosses their path. Our audience experience the execution of the world’s most notorious pirate, Stortebeker. Will the executioner be satisfied with one person’s blood or will he need more?
The ghost that strikes fear in the blackest of sailor’s hearts is waiting for our guests as they make their way through their torturous journey. They will learn her spine chilling tale, and how she chooses to appear whenever she pleases. Will it be tonight?
Escaping the high seas our guests are faced with the flooded streets of Hamburg, the worst storm of all time is gripping the city in its powerful grasp. Our visitors only way out is a small boat that must stay afloat through the violent rainstorm. The casualties of the Great Storm are said to haunt the streets of the city to this day, our visitors had better hope they don’t become one of them.
Extremis: Drop Ride to Doom
As the visitors flee the storm they are sent to the gallows. Visitors now become prisoners as they take their seats on the Extremis thrill ride. They are lifted 20 feet in the air and faced with a row of nooses and the booming, chilling voice of the executioner reading their rights before he pulls the handle, plunging visitors into the darkness below. Amongst the screams are thrilled smiles, making a perfect end to a perfect visit.
When a body falls into a bog it doesn’t always rot. Sometimes, it festers with dead eyes staring up into nothing for eternity. The preserved, soulless Bog Bodies are waiting for the next one to join them; will you be brave enough to make your way through the silent screams and sickening corpses where the Bog Bodies wait for you?
