One of my friends was pregnant and we didn't know what was yet to come. The employees told us to sit at the red chairs. It's basically a thatretical show, in which people from the audience are included. At the final room, I would highly recommend you to sit at the left hand side of the room, because people react...

Really enjoyed the dungeons, if you have been to any others such as London or Edinburgh, this is pretty much the same set out. The actors were all very good and their English was amazing! A good mix of history and the odd scary moment.

Probably scary and exciting if your are a 3 year old. Save your 17 euros. Had to wait for 25 mins for the tour to start. And once it started we were waiting for something to happen, something exciting which never did. If you have been to different dungeons across Europe, this is not something like that. Only actors telling... More

Visited during an afternoon and the queue was short, Price was 45 euro for two and a book. The tour takes approx. 1 hour to do and is follows a similar theme to the rest of the dungeons so if you have visited the UK ones then don’t expect anything new. The cast interact very well with everyone and language... More

This was BY FAR the best attraction that we went to...and the added bonus was we got in for free thanks to the lovely dutch couple behind us who had 4 free tickets going! It is very similar to the London Dungeons but obviously about Amsterdam instead of London - but the theme is very close. They do English and... More

To begin, I thought this was a tour of an actual dungeon not a theatric performance. After I realised it was a haunted house experience I tried to enjoy the entrainment but it was really bad. On my tour it was supposed to be all English tourists however most didn't speak a word of it. It meant lots of participation... More
