We got a Groupon to visit the Dungeon. All 4 of us including a 10 year old and 12 year old really enjoyed it. It was a bit scary but nothing that wasn’t on a “scary fun” level. The experience runs every 30 minutes and...More

I spent around an hour with my friend in the dungeon, I was expecting more, as I have been to the London Dungeon. The actors were very good in their roles, however, more actors would have created a better more suspenseful experience. Even if they...More

We did the combination Dungeon & Tussaud events. Well worth the money for the two together. The dungeon is very entertaining and interactive! As always the wax museum is amazing, pictures can be taken with all the figures!

I actually had so much at this. It's a bit "haunted house" kinda feel and cheesy but in a good way. The acting wasn't all that great but it was still very entertaining. Loved the history!

Same concept as in other cities' 'Dungeons' (e.g. London's) but still quite a lot of fun. Very interactive and the actors on our show were very good at involving the audience.

Caught and kept our attention with great stories from the city’s history presented in a spooky setting that enhanced the tales. Everything done with live performers which made it great!

This was more funny than scary, but well worth a visit especially if you can get a combo deal with Madame Tussaud’s. The end ride was a bit anticlimactic, but we had a blast!
