Blackpool Tower Dungeon Halloween Special


Just the word dungeon has always been a bit creepy to me and The Blackpool Tower Dungeon was no exception. I love visiting Blackpool but I have never entertained going into the dungeons I’m not for being scared or creeped out or anything, however I wasn’t ever 100% sure exactly what did happen in the dungeons!

When we were asked if we would like to visit for their Halloween special this half term I jumped at the chance, Olivia wasn’t really too sure so I decided to take my niece for added support incase she got a bit scared. I mean, it’s for children from the age of 3, but recommended for kids over 8 and adults alike. It couldn’t be that scary could it????

This Halloween Blackpool Tower Dungeon plays host to the Home of Halloween family experience this October, complete with over 800 pumpkins, a host of characters, electrifying special effects and stories.

Join the cast of horribly hilarious characters as you embark on a journey of mischief and mayhem. Meet the Witch Finder General and mysterious witches before being accused of a terrible ‘witchy’ crime, plus take a ride on our ‘for those who dare’ drop ride for a real thrill.

Could it be that scary? Yes. it was.

The tour of the dungeons consists of being shown introduced to some of the most horrible tales from the country’s past in 10 actor led shows with all the props and atmosphere taking you right into the spirit of it. Recounting their tales in the scariest way possible with bits of humour injected too. If you are lucky you too will be called upon to experience the stories first hand, do you fancy losing your tongue to the torturer? Nah me neither. The same went for Olivia, in fact, she was so horrified, and possibly traumatised for life, that it was here we had to leave the show.

True to it’s word, it was pretty grisly and utterly terrifying and proved far too much for Olivia and we had to excuse ourselves from the rest of the tour (me I was loving it, I could see the humour as did all other kids big and small visiting too, but not lil miss drama queen) I honestly did not think she would react that way, but then again I didn’t have any idea of what to expect so lesson learnt, less grisly, more Disney! I have to mention all the actors and staff were really great with her and as bad as I felt were assured we weren’t the first, and definitely won’t be the last I can attest to that.

The Halloween special runs to 1st November so why not take your little terrors to the dungeons for a trip they will never forget!

Head over to Blackpool Tower Dungeon to plan your visit. I recommend booking in advance as Blackpool was ridiculously busy on Monday for half term week and the queues for the tower especially were super long. If you pre book online you can also gain some great discounts and save yourself a few pennies in the process.

Tickets from £10.50 for children and £13.50 for adults


Halloween 1


Jack 1

If you fancy a more ‘grown up’ experience head to the dungeons on 31st October 2015 to for a unique ‘Where’s Jack’ night. Strictly over 18’s only though!

Tickets £19.95 per person. 

Join Inspector Abberline from London as he goes in pursuit of the gruesome killer after fresh victims have washed up on the shores of Blackpool. But watch your back… as The Ripper might not be far behind you.
Take a journey on to the mortuary to learn all about the grisly details of the Jack the Ripper Murders, before running for your life through the terrifying mirror maze as The Ripper attempts to claim his next victim.
 Finish the journey in The Hangman’s Tavern, where you can enjoy a Bloody Mary to help calm your nerves.
 Step into the Home of Halloween here at The Blackpool Tower Dungeon, it’ll be a scream!
What do you think? Are you brave enough? Not sure I am a bit of a wimp me ha!

  1. I’m not sure any of mine would be brave enough for this, when he was seven my son had to get carried through parts of the Doctor Who experience because he was so scared!

  2. Ahhh this is my kind of perfect day out!
    Would love to visit this on, but haven’t even listed the London one yet.

  3. Sounds like a great day out for the big ones, might have to leave the little ones at home with the grandparents, will definitely think about visiting next Halloween.

  4. Oh my goodness! I always forget about this amazing place.
    The funny thing is I have lived in London all my life (nearly 30 years) and have never been to the one in London. Only went to Madame Tussades a few weeks ago for the first time too on a press trip.
    I NEED to get my butt into gear.
    Thanks so much for sharing this hun

  5. I’ve never been to the London version of this but I really must one day – just for the experience! I hate the smell of places like these and even though I’m not a particularly jumpy person, these places tend to weird me out :/

    1. It was a bit creepy right down to not be able to see in front of you that part wasn’t fun! But I’m glad I went, I just wish it didn’t end so suddenly

    1. It is a great place to visit if you ever get the chance and the dungeons are great, just make sure you don’t take someone who is easily scared like I did!

  6. I’ve never visited Blackpool before, but if I did I would definitely visit the Tower. I bet it’s especially spooky at Halloween!

  7. Oh, what a shame Olivia didn’t like it. Even Disney can traumatise though. When my niece was four I took her on The Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Paris. She hated it and screamed the whole time. She even had a screaming nightmare that night. She’s 10 now and still remembers how scared she was. Bad Auntie award to me.

    1. Oh dear! We didn’t do that ride when we went to Disney Olivia was too young for it then. I made up for it by taking her to see Olly Murs in Madame Tussauds afterwards so I think all is forgiven now!

    1. I didn’t think I would like it but I did! Not sure I’m up for the halloween night show though bit too much for me
