The Edinburgh Dungeon
|[Calm your nerves with a cocktail after the dungeon experience!]|
People flock to Edinburgh for many reasons. Some come to visit its famous castle. Some come to take in the city's astonishing depth of history, sunrise from Arthur's Seat, or the Edinburgh Festival. But what if you're looking to be scared out of your wits? The Edinburgh Dungeon offers a fun and nerve-wracking glimpse into the dark world of Scotland's past criminals - through a pulse-quickening barrage of live actors, special effects and underground rides - inside an unassuming building next to Edinburgh Waverley rail station. Witch hunting, torture, body-snatching, the plague and Scottish cannibal Sawney Bean are just a handful of the scary scenes, climaxing in your own hanging! Not all of the scenes hit the spot, but most do, and those with a nervous disposition might do well to stay away. But if you think you can handle all of the above, it might be an excellent way to frighten the living daylights out of yourself and your friends. We loved it.
