Phobophobia - The Ventriloquist's Nightmare and The London Bridge Experience
3

Last week, the kind folks at AttractionTix invited press and bloggers to Phobophobia at The London Bridge Experience. I’ve never been though The London Bridge Experience before, and I was excited to see their offering for Halloween. Phobophobia is the fear of, well, fear and they have added ‘The Ventriloquist’s Nightmare’ and it’s an addition to The London Bridge Experience. It runs from 22nd-31st October, between 6pm-11pm and is only for those aged 16 and over. You can get tickets here

There’s a promotional video below –




After being introduced to a plethora of snakes and plied with copious amounts of wine, we were led into ‘The Ventriloquist’s Nightmare’. Admittedly, this Phobophobia addition was pretty good – lots of actors, scares and fun. After you’ve tackled this, you start The London Bridge Experience. Which, was – well. Poor. I’m not sure if the actors are moved from the normal experience into Phobophobia while it’s running, or if it’s normally so sparsely ‘manned’? But it felt like the whole thing ran on motion sensed, electronic, scares and mannequins – rather than having actual people inside.

There were actors, and they were good, but far too few of them.

The London Bridge Experience is LONG too, which is good, because it’s good value for money. Iit’s also bad because the scares are so far apart, the tension built up in anticipation is lost because you’re waiting too long. I really desperately wanted to enjoy it, but I left with my pulse flat-lining, rather than racing. Perhaps I was spoilt with the shorter, sharper shocks at the mazes at Thorpe Park and Alton Towers. I just didn’t enjoy it as much as I hoped.

It’s an Award-Winning Attraction too, for several years running – I’m unsure if I’m missing something.

I think the Phobophobia element was fine, but the rest, was just ‘meh’. I’d say if you really wanted to try it, get a cheaper ticket through AttractionTix – don’t pay full price though. It’s not worth it.
