Quarter of edible chocolate billboard eaten at launch of new York Dungeon show

Forget fluffy bunnies and chocolate eggs, The York Dungeon launched its seasonal Death by Chocolate pop up show with a 6ft by 7ft edible chocolate billboard.

26kg of Thorntons Chocolate was used for the billboard, altogether amounting to 140,000 calories, enough for seven days!

Helen Douglas, general manager at The York Dungeon, said: “People couldn’t believe their eyes when they spotted the billboard and couldn’t believe their luck when they were invited to get stuck in for free!

“It was a great success and we hope to see lots more visitors heading down to get involved with the scary fun at our Death by Chocolate show.”

A pop-up Victorian Sweet Shop and its enticing sickly owner will greet guests, who are warned to be on their guard and prepared for a darker twist. With jars of tempting sweets on offer, all is not as it seems and there is a strong chance that people won’t leave smiling.

The York Dungeon is a unique visitor attraction that brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages and scenes in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious, fun and sometimes a bit scary!

Your 75 minute journey will take you through 2,000 years of York’s dark history. Guided by a full cast of actors, you and your companions walk through The Dungeon, moving from show to show. Shows are based on York’s real history, minus the boring bits.
