  • It is an hour tour with several historical / haunted stories. It was scary and very well done. A great haunted house. 
  • Loved it. Better than expected as I've been to the one in York/England. Acting was good and they got individuals involved in each part. Worth the money in my opinion. 
  • Attraction scare me like that actor. Pocan and able to speak English considerably, however, and do not know the infamous local celebrity, legend, end up feeling too. Actor picked from the audience, but no English skill is directed against a different meaning in cold sweat pants there. We recommend do not in themselves have no English skills. Reverse English and recommended if you like horror, maybe.

  • As a Bay Area resident, I have seen lots of advertisement of the San Francisco Dungeons. On their website, you will find discounted tickets for children and adults. I purchased the combo tickets (two adults and two children: ages 8 and 9) for the dungeons and Madame Tussauds. Once we arrived at 11am, we had a 10 minute wait. The tour proceeds down a set of stairs with a set of different rooms/scenes about San Francisco history dating back to the 18 century to 1907. I was randomly selected in one room as a spy and placed in a holding cell. The atmosphere is fun and the actors did a phenomenal job presenting each story. Cons: The 8yr. old was scared when lights when out in different scenes. Actors don't touch, but they will randomly appear to scare you when lights are turned off and then back on. Great experience. Must go!
  • Then San Francisco Dungeon ... wow. I've been here today and it's amazing. It offers a unique experience and as their slogan says, being scared has never been so much fun! So, what happens is, you walk from one room to another with a group of about 10 - 20 people who you do not know. In each room, there is an actor which puts on a show. A scary show. Now this is where the scary and funny part begins ... while he is running the show, he "invites" people in the audience on the stage! The best is, if they participate in the story to entertain others. There are 9 rooms with one actor per room and in between the rooms there are paths, often a bit scary, especially if you are in the first row. The most important part is your company - the people you go in with. Here is where I was really lucky. There were about 15 of us, maybe some more but I was at the very front all the time with a girl about my age and a bit younger boy walking along from front to back. The best thing is, that the front row, the two of us mostly, was always scared the most and usually the first people to walk into the room get called onto the stage. All in all, I highly recommend it to anyone, no matter the age. I'm 15 and had a unforgettable experience in the San Francisco Dungeon today, and I'm sure you will be anything but sorry to visit it. Thanks for reading :)
  • This was such an amazing experience!! I recommend it to everyone. It was so life like and had many laughs and scares. The actors include the people in the audience which makes it fun. This is also pretty cool because it's a walk through, so you're not sitting the whole time. Lastly, the staff was amazing. They were all so nice, especially the man with an Irish accent. His name is niles. He is such a sweetheart. He helped my family out and was just simply amazing, we need more people like him in the world:)
  • We've been at 2 other dungeon locations: Hamburg and London. They are all kinda similar. Never the less this was a good experience we had a lot of fun there. Good Actors and they're really good in let you participate. Have fun!
  • So exciting! Best part of our trip! It was more startling than scary. Noone chases you and no one touches you. We learned some history while having a great time! The actors and tech team were GREAT!
