    This highly advertised attraction was as big a disappointment as not scary. Save your money ($27) for something worthwhile. like the California Academy of Science museum. The ads make it look like a h...  more »

    If you like visiting the dungeons then it's worth a visit to this one. The ride at the end is not up to much though and they never took your picture at the beginning so you could purchase this. I know...  more »

    Total currently still recommended. The actors themselves will make every effort to teach one of the creeps and make up for that. The "freefall"-Attraktion however is a joke and also during the boat trip you should invest a little in the disguise of pipes and smoke detectors, damitman not the impression has to 7 meters by a heating cellar. But definitely kei must made nice.

    This was a super fun thing to do. It was just like a trip to the Pirates of the Caribbean sort of, but it used live actors. This was probably the most fun thing I've done in a long time. It was dark, the actors were great, the storylines were historically correct and it was well worth the price of admission. If you're in San Francisco and you want a history lesson on some of its darker underbelly, this is the place. I would recommend it to anybody. I just wish the drop ride at the end was a little bit taller, but you can't have everything.

    Fun experience. The dungeon takes you through the thrilling history of San Francisco, actors do a good portrayal. Not a place for small children especially kids frightened easily because there are lots of scary moments. But over all really fun, great for groups.

    It's a lot bigger than I expected and really entertaining. The cast are very interactive with the customers. I actually got spooked a few times. There are a few mini rides which add to the overall creepy effect. I think it's a fun place for family and friends.

    A lot of fun. Get into the spirit of it, and you'll have a blast. The staff and performers were very good (a little corny). The ride at the end was kinda disappointing. But overall, very fun.

    I have written a review of this on every platform that is possible to review something on. That should tell you how terrible this attraction is. The script is fundamentally awful and will make you want to blind yourself like Oedipus. The actors seemed to be chained their against their will and the working conditions seemed to make them not want to be there at all. Every aspect of this was awful. The comedy was not even cheesey and groan enducing, there were two jokes that were repeated and terrible scares that were done over and over again until you wish you had the plague. The rides which seemed to be the selling point we're actually jokes. The boat ride takes you maybe 30 feet in front of you at about 1mph. The drop ride takes you maybe 15 feet in the air and drops you one time. I would be fine if these were hidden parts of the attraction. But they were main selling points. Terrible. Don't waste your money, time, or precious energy on this garbage tourist trap.

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
