Lift Jester

Descend into the heart of the Dungeon in this medieval lift. Hear the grinding cogs and chains as the winches strain. Descent is the perfect opening to your Dungeon experience, funny, suspenseful and beautifully played. If the Dungeon was a movie, Descent would be the title sequence. What you will experience The Jester jokes are really funny, Dungeon rules, and whether the Lift actually works. If you’re lucky enough you’ll get to ‘hang’ out with the Jester for a while listening to his jokes, critiquing his singing style, and having a jolly time. Perfect to lull you into a false sense of security before you enter the lifts.

Dark Chapel

Step into the eerie darkness of the chapel at Lytham Priory. Hear the monk tell tales of the history of the Fylde Coast, from Viking invasions to the War of the Roses to the new arrival of a new enemy that knows no fear and gives no mercy! The monks are terrified of this new enemy sent to the Pool that is Black as the wrath of God! The monks will offer you no sanctuary.

The Plague Doctor

Welcome to Plague Street in 1349. In this gloomy alley be sure to keep your eye out for signs of the Black Death with red crosses on doors, rotting bodies, and black rats. The Doctor’s Assistant will meet you along the way and bring you to the medic in his surgery, where you’ll be asked to take your seats before the Doctor will see you. (Here’s a hint – avoid sitting next to anyone with a cough, they’ve probably already got the Plague!)

The Torturer

In the Torture chamber of Lancaster Castle, the Torturer is a craftsman who uses tools. Also, he is very practically minded and loves to teach. This show is consistently one of our highlights - delighting and repulsing in equal measure. Just remember, like any artist The Torturer has his sensitive side.
