Visited here recently with my partner and we were both very disappointed. Iv been to the Edinburgh dungeons twice and have loved it both times. For what it costs it could be a bit better. The layout and actors were good but there could be a bit more going on.

A bit exciting at first, but this is more for children and people who scare easily. Not as informative as I would have thought when reading on the homepage. And not 500 years of history either. Maybe a mistranslation? I feel like the owners are trying to be both scary and informative and theatrical and they do not quite reach... More

The actors and actresses at the Amsterdam dungeon are doing a great job at making you forget that you're in nowadays amsterdam. Creepy, scary and informative. But make sure to bring clean underwear.

We had so much fun when we visited the Dungeon. Was a great way to learn about the dark past of Amsterdam. The actors were very good and we at points wondered how they could do it without laughing themselves. All members of our group got "picked on" at various points of the tour. My advice would be to relax... More

Similar to the London Dungeons but they do a few little tricks differently including splitting up men and women for a bit. Volunteer to participate in the action and enjoy! My partner was so into it that our group thought he was one of the actors so we all had a great time!

One of the best things we did on our weekend break in Amsterdam. Totally worth the money. A truly entertaining way to learn more about the darker side of the history of the city. Great actors, very atmospheric. Loved it!

It was a funny experience in this place. It is not scary but funny, worth going.do not buy as a direct ticket, rather go for combo tickets that can save few euros.

After visiting the London dungeons this was brilliant and much more scarier. The way they flip through the two languages is brilliant. Renovation at the end was a let down but otherwise brilliant

I have been to the Dungeons in Edinburgh and York within the past few years, so I knew what to expect when going in to the dungeon. My friend had no idea what to expect. The stories are lacking in history in the Netherlands. It was funny but me nor my friend found it scary at all, whereas the ones... More

Dear mjames93, Thank you for visiting already 3 Dungeons! As well as taking the time to write this review. We want to be funny, but you are right also scary. We will send your review to the actor manager to be sure; we will scare you the next time ;-) Regards, The Amsterdam Dungeon More
