  • Such a shame this place has gone - it was brilliant! Hopefully the owners new project has as much interest as we loved visting here.  more »
  • As a huge fan of horror movies thought I would give this a try. I have been to Blackpool a few times but not seen this before but I’m glad I found it. For a bargain £3 you get a good range of scares.....  more »
  • Enjoyed visiting this place. It doesn't take long to go around and found price very cheap for the experience you get.some very interesting stuff in there. I found more like a horror museum and very well layed out. I would say it is a must for any horror fan.
