The London Dungeon2013
By Amelia Meyer
Opened to the public in 1974, the London Dungeon remains one of this epicentre’s most haunting and popular attractions amongst tourists. This gory lure features different exhibitions of murders, torture methods from the Medieval Era and creepy methods used in days past, which are sure to invoke imaginations and get spectators’ hair standing up on end. In fact, the Dungeon covers approximately a millennium of the more insidious side of human history.
The London Dungeon’s success lies in its use of a mixture of media, including live actors, two exciting rides, impressive special effects, and a total of 13 shows. There is a macabre sense of humour that permeates all exhibitions, making it suitable for young and old alike. The London Dungeon is managed by Merlin Entertainments (which is also responsible for Madame Tussauds, London Eye and Lego Land, amongst a host of other tourist favourites).
