You seem to be defending the London Dungeons a bit too much. Here are some of my observations and comments on the matter.
I have read in the press and on this forum many times that there have been major issues with The London Dungeons queue line blocking the exits to LB station. The IRA even targeted the London Dungeons a few years back and I for one was always concerned with the queues blocking the station fire exits.
It seems to me that they only changed there queue to go the other way down Tooley St, when The London Bridge Experience opened and NOT when they were asked to by the locals for many years or in the interests of health and safety.
I for one think that the London Dungeons new approach to there long queues is great (although the pubs whos entrances are blocked off do not agree). I also think that The London Bridge Experience is doing a good job to build up there business. The fact that they have taken what was a Sex club and created a tourist attraction is also good. What would you rather have on your door step!
But the biggest thing I like is that the guys who own The London Bridge Experince are locals and not some offshore corporate body.
Obiously this post is about gore and I agree that both attractions use gore as do many others in promoting an attraction or event(e.g body works at the 02) The London Dungeons also use signs outside there attraction with shows a man holding a cut throat razor to a childs throat. They also use loads buses driving around London with scary images to promote there attraction.
