A great afternoon out if you want to jump a little

Advantages: An interesting day out
Disadvantages: Jack the Ripper section is far too graphic
I was originally a little apprehensive about visiting the London Dungeon. I am not a fan of scary movies so I figured this might not be the best thing for me to do.
However, I decided to go with a friend. As we were yet to purchase tickets, we had to join the long queue. It took about 10 minutes to get into the place, this was on a Sunday afternoon.
Once we had entered the place, we had a professional photo taken, which you can purchase at the end of the tour.
The tour itself wasn't that scary. Most of it was designed to make you jump, more than anything else. You get a "scary" talk in each section by a different actor. All the actors are amazing at what they do and really help to get the atmosphere going.
There are also a couple of rides too, however, there is no option to opt out of them. The last ride is a drop, which you can choose not to take part in if it's a bit too much for you.
It was definitely a fun experience but not one that I would do again. It's one of those places where, once you've seen it once, you've seen it all.
My only criticism is that one of the sections was far too much. It was a section on Jack the Ripper. I felt that the story and images were far too graphic. Inappropriately graphic. There was no need for them to do that at all. It really affected me and I could tell that a lot of the girls in the room seemed a little upset by it too. I dread to think how children would react to it.
Summary: Go once and you'll enjoy it.
