A Dracula themed walk through/ haunted house with audio on loop detailing the story of Brampton Stoker's novel. Too dark, can't really see much but it's just as well to be honest... read more

A lot of people on here complaining but it is what is is it's a ten minute walk through ( if that) and I found it absolutely petrifying I was literally screaming and couldn't get past the live actor . My son who is 5 thought it was hilarious. I also get scared in ghost trains which is in effect... More

Our visit mirrored that of many other here. Too dark to see where you were going. Notice said an actor was on duty, but no one appeared. It was over in literally a few minutes. We felt totally robbed of our entrance fee. AVOID!

Even a one star rating seems to much, only lasted a couple of minutes and wasn't scary at all, I was expecting live actors etc, the only scary thing was making sure you didnt fall over/trip in the pitch black. Not worth the money Wouldn't recommend at all to anyone

Yes it's a bit naff, but great at the same time. Is it scary ? yes, not suitable for younger children; lots of things to make you jump, and make the heart pound. But it is fun and lots of nervous laughs. it is reasonably priced, but great fun.

We had quite a rushed experience of this attraction due to a member of our party dragging us through it at quite some pace (he was quite scared, I think), so we didn't really get to see much of it. We were expecting someone to jump out at us but no one did. It was all a bit tacky, but... More

Read a lot of negative reviews on here after going in yesterday (I know you're supposed to do it the other way around, but whatever) and some of them are actually more hilarious than the Dracula Experience itself. Anyone disappointed with this needs to adjust their expectations. It's the size of a house, and it costs less than a pint... More

We wish we'd have read the reviews before paying to enter this ridiculous 'experience'. The only experience is that by the end you'll have leant never to waste your cash again! I love anything gothy, scary and dracula related but I don't even have the words to say how bad this place is. It genuinely needs to be shut down... More

We expected a London dungeon kind of experience - a bit scary but with loads of interesting information. In stead, it was mega tacky, and some random actor jumped out of us in a £1 wilko mask. And it only lasted about 3 minutes!!! Was hoping for some interesting story about Dracula and Whitby!!
