My partner and I went to London Dungeon three months prior which was a fantastic attraction so we came here on our Amsterdam visit. The tour was good - actors were scary and well trained... some annoying, but mostly good. There was no real climax to the tour though, it was like "is that it?" whereas in London you got... More

Stopped in here for a visit as we are big dungeons fans. This one I found to be the best and most interactive one. Actors were brilliant and a fun way to learn a bit of dark history.

a really expensive attraction that is incredibly out of date. It could still work most of the actors really put a lot into it but unfortunately the scenery and props seem to be aged and out of it. The entrance fee is steep for the time it lasts and the entertainment value. We are no longer scared by banging doors... More

We thoroughly enjoyed the dungeon and knew what to expect having been to the one in Edinburgh, Scotland. The scares are relatively frequent and the attraction is very interactive. If you don't take it too seriously you will enjoy!

It was an unforgettable experience, and definitely one of a kind. The Staff were really friendly and they seemed to enjoy what they were doing. Their acting was surreal and spontaneous. I don't want to spoil the experience, but all what i want to say, is just to make sure to smoke a joint before going in, because it will... More

Went to the London Dungeon and thought would see what this one was like. Basicly same concept, silly fun. I think this would be really too scary and gross for little children but teens and above will get a kick out of it. The actors that tell you stories of old Amsterdam are fantastic,they do a great job of staying... More

If you like a little thrill you are right at the dungeon. I never was at another dungeon so I can't compare. The actors did a good job and the interacting with the crowd was fun and not boring at all. Don't expect a horror show, the thrill is more subtle and mostly your senses need to be tiggled. I...

Hubby and I went to the dungeon and had a marvellous time! Most parts that you visit have actors playing out parts. They are all so very good and really add to the atmosphere. Were we richly entertained. I highly recommend for a visit.
