The San Francisco Dungeon is NOT your usual visitor attraction and is a guided tour through San Franciscos scary past! Nine live actor shows, 200 years of history, 360° sets and one dark boat ride will keep you entertained. You will think you're right in a horror movie. It's never been such a blast to be scared!
The Dungeon are one of Europe's best-loved visitor attractions. Following the example of Amsterdam, London and Berlin it is now the first Dungeon in the USA. In a group of 30 you will visit each room and everyone will scream of fear at one point.
The tour starts in 'The Decent' where you'll find out if Jack can be trusted. After continue to the 'Gold Rush Creed' where Father Francisco Palou takes you to the year 1848 when in San Francisco was a steadly battle between natives and new settlers looking for gold. Then comes 'Lost Mines of Sutter's Mill', 'Gangs of San Francisco', 'The Court Room of Francisco' and 'Miss Pigott's Saloon'. The next topic is ' Shangai Kelly's Boat Ride' where you'll be taken to Shangai and work as a sailor on a scary boat. The last two themes are 'Chinatown Plague' and 'The Ghosts of Alcatrez'.
It's recommended for guests 10 years and up. Experience special events like Christmas at the Dungeon, Dungeon Lates and the Home of Halloween. You can even schedule bachelorette and bachelor parties, birthday parties and school visits beforehand.
The shows are based on real historical events. Experience the world most famous jail Alcatrez in a whole other and total creepy way in the Ghosts of Alcatrez.
