New from Easter 2009 ~ Bloody Vikings

Herded into the forest by murderous Vikings, don’t look back as they obliterate everything and everyone in their path. Will you escape the most brutal fighters in York’s history…..???

Travel to the dark depths of the dungeons of York Prison, where murderer, thief and torturer Dick Turpin the infamous highwayman is incarcerated as he waits for death at the gallows…… Suddenly you enter your worse nightmare; a pitch dark cell, a waiting hangman and Turpin wants his revenge…in blood!

Meet the notorious Viking leader Erik Bloodaxe, wander through the Plague ravaged streets and the 17th century judge knows exactly what you have been up to….the court isn’t impressed and the punishment will be harsh! You could be left to languish in the rat infested Dungeon …or be given a gruesome task to perform…but who knows who the judge will pick on.

In the most haunted city in England, come and experience the presence of ghosts which will chill your very bones as you stand in the silent yet chilling air. Will you hold your nerve as you enter the paranormal world and be confronted by the vengeful ghostly presence… or will it leave you paralysed with fear?
