Would 100% recommend!! My first time in York and the York pass is definitely worth it. I would say book and plan, although activities are fairly close to each other we needed to book over the October half term, plus the taxi companies all said it is a very busy city all the time. Do as much as you can and we managed to do some spontaneous things too. York minster had a light show on one night £7. We also managed to do a cocktail experience in the potion shop we paid just over £20 and so worth it!

We (Grandparents) of a 13 and 14 year old took them to York Dungeons - we all loved it , a few arghhhs from us all and lots of jumps which made it rather exciting for the grandkids and for us Would definitely recommend and worth the £70 something pounds spent for well over the hour Actors are all very good and the smells and sounds are really spooky

A great experience all round. It was so good. We all loved the plague scenario and the witch. We laughed and screamed with everyone else. It wasn’t what we were expecting - it was so much better. Thanks for a great experience.

Incredibly amazingly awesome. Fantastic experience and very good value for money. It was very well acted out with amazing realism. 10 out of 10 for being scary. Would definitely recommend it.

Great! I’ve been to the dungeon franchises all over the world including York numerous times, it’s always the best of them all.
