    @Leah il reserve judgement till I've ridden it. Possibly it could be classed as an experience.

    Surely he should be showing a little more enthusiasm than that?

    He's not exactly the kinda guy to be a shouty hype-machine really though.

    Currently in the queue... Opening at 11. Looks pretty busy, a lot of hype.

    Surprisingly a lot of people not wanting to ride due to fear.

    How far back is the queue going? When I went a week ago it was going all the way back to celebrity before the gates opened.

    We were queuing in a queue outside of the queue. Lol and it went the full length of the ride about 4 times. We were right near the front and was on by about 10:15.

    Glitchy as hell.

    My headset was messed up most of the time.

    Not scary, but was mostly enjoyable. But the middle section of just a greyed out headset was boring.

    Could have cut a good 3 minutes off it.

    Don't wanna be a dick about the ride but Sub Terra was a better one.

    More atmospheric, scarier, and it actually did something.

    This isn't a ride.

    Don't worry, most people on here have criticised it (including me). Its a different experience, but I personally prefer sub terra (if it had its actors back). This just doesn't have enough live action or real set pieces (don't get me wrong, what they do have is amazing, but the vr doesn't equal it).

    Here's a video from the Evening Standard, showing some of the inside of the attraction. Obviously, there are spoilers!

    I'd prefer Sub-Terra if it was open.

    Not sure if high praise for Sub Terra... or a damning review of DBGT? :p

    Right! Someone contact the ASA, it's clearly false advertising!

    I've been trying to fathom out the ride system and ...

    looking at that video, the Victorian train carriage is actually an elaborate tunnel, and the regular underground car slots inside?
