The Amsterdam Dungeons really are a place to go to find out a little bit more about the history of the city. Yes, it's done in a scary/childish manner, but the themes and stories we learnt whilst visiting were very interesting. There is an entrance fee for the Dungeons, however if you see somebody on the streets advertising this experience,... More

The place is very well conceived, the actors are amazing, the objects look very genuine, the set up in general is excellent! BUT, the show itself is a little bit childish(I admit i was scared 2 times,but...) , they asked one of us to say his name and the others to point at him and say 'Shame on you,(name)!' a... More

I recently went here with my friends on a rainy evening. There was no line to wait in so it was perfect. I must say that although it was enjoyable I felt like I was slightly rushed through the experience. This may be due to how close it was to closing time.

We enjoyed the Amsterdam Dungeon. The actors were good and the effects were fun and sometimes startling. It's a bit pricey but we still enjoyed the show.

I visited this around 5 years ago and it seemed better then. There was a small ride, this has now vanished without any clue in knowing until you've finished the tour and you end up in the gift shop. The effects seem a little out dated now but overall it's something to do if you have an hours rain shower.... More

We were 6 people who decided to enter the dungeon experience. None of us had it before so we did not expect or forsee any of the tricks :) my friend who was pregnant was picked on the last scenery to pay for all her sins and was burnt to death. Baby still ok hoping to be delivered on time... More

We've never been to a dungeon attraction before. This was an hour of pure fun and a really good laugh. The actors were brilliant and the sets were professional and entertaining. Very good value for money, was a great experience, would happily recommend to all friends and family to go!
