JACK THE RIPPER ON WORLDWIDE DUNGEON TOUR…

Posted in Scareworld Magazine Latest News on May 21, 2015 by AtmosFEAR! Scare Entertainment

Jack the Ripper will visit The San Francisco Dungeon over Summer 2015.

One of the world’s most infamous and fascinating serial killers, Jack the Ripper, is coming to life this summer in a new spine-chilling show called ‘Where’s Jack?’.

The killer, whose identity remains unknown to this day, plagued the streets of Victorian London and it is widely believed that he travelled overseas to evade capture, and continue his murderous activities abroad, and now he’s appearing in The San Francisco Dungeon.

Where did he go, and where will he find his next victims?  Visitors will get the latest from the Newspaper Boy, and the ‘word on the street’ from Kitty, a local ‘working girl’.  San Francisco has been on high alert since rumours of Jack the Ripper’s Return rippled through our shores.  With the latest homicides of Blanch Lamont and Minnie Williams in true ‘Ripper’ fashion, and a third unidentified woman found on Maiden Lane early one morning, authorities have placed San Francisco on the ‘watch list’ for the infamous killer.

Catch  him  while  you  can!  Where’s  Jack? will  be  on  for  only  13 weeks from June to September 2015.  Book  ahead to  avoid  horrible  disappointment!

The  Ripper  will  be  unleashed  on  seven  Dungeons  attractions  worldwide  during  Summer  2015, as   well  as continuing  to  spread  fear  in  his  hometown  attraction  at  The  London  Dungeon.

Posted in Scareworld Magazine Latest News on May 21, 2015 by AtmosFEAR! Scare Entertainment

The capital’s dark and deadly history is set to be brought to life like never before as The Edinburgh Dungeon unveils a brutal crime of passion in its new show The Green Lady.

A tale of love, loss, betrayal and death, The Green Lady launched on Thursday 26 March as a permanent fixture on the renowned Dungeon tour. Revisiting one of Edinburgh’s more mysterious ghost stories, the Dungeon’s latest tale is rich in haunting drama and spine tingling intrigue.

The new show signals the award winning visitor attraction’s biggest investment since the Drop Dead: Drop Ride to Doom was introduced in 2009. Over £250,000 has been dedicated to creating stunning sets, breath-taking special effects and theatrical costume.

Johnny Campbell, general manager, The Edinburgh Dungeon commented: “We have a really fun, playful side at The Edinburgh Dungeon but this year we were keen to explore the capital’s darker stories uncovering Auld Reekie’s sinister past.

“The story of The Green Lady is a really tragic tale with all the right ingredients – romance, deceit and retribution. We’ve made a significant investment to introduce some really spectacular new sets and special effects so visitors can expect a seriously thrilling experience.”

The Green Lady opened to the public on 26 March 2015 and tickets are on sale now; for more information visit www.thedungeons.com/edinburgh.

RASCALS AND ROGUES UNLEASH THEIR CHARMS ON THE YORK DUNGEON

Posted in Scareworld Magazine Latest News on May 21, 2015 by AtmosFEAR! Scare Entertainment

The York Dungeon will be taken over by charming ‘rascals and rogues’ who will be trying to recruit new members for their mischievous gang in the attraction’s new interactive half-term (23rd-31st May) show!

Visitors will step into a dark and eerie world, winding their way through the back streets of York. They will be shown ‘Wanted’ posters by the Dungeon’s local constable who will introduce the rebellious rogues and tell tales of their troublesome behaviour.

Guests might have been warned but nothing will prepare them for a surprise meeting with Samuel Gregory – leader of the notorious Gregory Gang! Confident, quick, brash and full of beans, Samuel’s dreams are as big as his ability to entice innocent victims to his fearless mob.

As they are taken to the cellar of The Old Cock Inn, the secret meeting point for Gregory Gang members, the potential recruits must be on their guard.

Following their encounter with Samuel, guests will continue to meet some of history’s most infamous rascals, be swept away by their charms and lured into a world of criminal escapades.

These charming and devious characters are going to take visitors on a thrilling adventure and give them the skills to ‘hold up’ a carriage and become the ultimate rascal.

With an amazing cast of theatrical actors and special effects, guests can meet Dick Turpin, the most infamous English highwayman renowned for poaching, burglary, horse theft and murder.

Helen Douglas, General Manager at The York Dungeon, said: “History has revealed many exciting tales of loveable rogues and ruthless rascals and we are very excited to draw on their antics for our latest attraction.

“Guests will be swept away by our charming rogues and could well end up as the latest recruit to their gang. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!”

And because it’s half-term, guests can expect even darker, scarier and more twisted behaviour from the cast of history’s most notorious characters. From Guy Fawkes to Henry VIII, visitors to the Dungeon will meet a variety of familiar faces as they journey through 12 shows that are profiled at the popular attraction.

As an extra bonus for families looking for a great, value-for-money day out, online prices for a family of four (minimum one adult 16+ and two children under 16) start at just £35.00 if booked in advance online at http://www.thedungeons.com/york/en/book-tickets/family-saver-tickets.aspx. Booking online also ensures priority entrance too!
