He was lucky this wasn't his last birthday as Pig Face was very eager to keep you all down there. We hope it made his birthday extra special and you have some great pictures to remember it by.

Pig Face was most disappointed that you made your escape, the little ones would've made such great pets... Thanks for making the effort to stop by with a review and it's most awesome to hear from happy albeit terrified customers.

Visited Hell in a Cell with my team from work and whilst being an absolutely terrifying experience from start to finish, we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Would absolutely recommend this to anyone.
