  • We enjoyed the visit but not for thrill but serious of actors in doing their act. It is interactive in most sessions. Last ride just a drop of around 10 feet vertical. 
  • Fun activity to do with the kids. Min. age would be 8 as the lights often go out and the actors look scary. We got the dual ticket with Madame Taussauds. Great wet weather activities. Tours run every ...  more »

  • I loved the experience, the actors were terrific, the effects were one of the best that I have experienced. You would be immersed in the act from start to end. Do check out their store, it has some good things.
  • This interactive show brings you and your friends into the fun! I learned a lot about San Francisco history and had a few laughs and scares while doing it. The actors are wonderful and all played their parts well.
  • Super fun place to go but unfortunately the boat has been down for ages and takes a bit of the fun out of it. The first time I went was awesome, the second time the actors must have been different and the experience wasn't as great as I remembered. Still a fun thing to do if you're in the area!
  • 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 :)
