York dungeon celebrates 5 million customers!

The York Dungeon has seen a staggering 5000,000 visitors pass through its doors since 1986. Denise Pitts was the one to hit the jackpot when she took her mother Jeanette on a visit to York for her birthday celebrations. Their visit to the Dungeon certainly made that day extra special. They were given VIP treatment including coffee and cake while they waited for their tour to begin, free pictures and goody bags.

“The experience was great. We loved that the show was informative with a dash of terror and a hint of humour; also some unexpected surprises along the way! Thoroughly enjoyable. Jeanette was put into a cage for pleading insanity when accused of naked dancing and she found this absolutely hilarious. The actors were great and really got into their characters. We would highly recommend this attraction when visiting York and would like to thank everyone for making us feel so special,” says Denise.

“The York Dungeon has been a MUST SEE since opening in 1986 and over the past 34 years we have welcomed, scared and provided amazing immersive experiences to 5 million visitors. This is a significant milestone in the history of the York Dungeon and it was great to surprise Denise and Jeanette as the visitors that hit the milestone; particularly with the help of Town Crier Ben Fry.

2020 is another exciting year for The York Dungeon with a new shows for February Half Term War of the Roses: The Bloody Battle, Guy Fawkes in May and Séance in October for Halloween. ” says Dungeon Manager Stuart Jarman
