I went to the Dungeon with a couple of friends last Sunday afternoon. The first impression was that it ended too soon. The whole experience takes about half an hour, if that, and it wasn't the 11 shows that they announced, maybe 5 or 6. On arrival we have to wait inside a cage for more customers to come and... More

The dungeon is great to visit! We were with a small group and were frightened quite a lot. The tourguide was a pale serious and angry man who knew how to keep the tension high. Great experience here, more then once they manage to put you in the show, which makes it all more the spookier. It is scary yet... More

was very good the actors really make the effort and there are a few surprises takes around an hour to do but worth doing for the craic, works out cheaper to buy a few events together in a ticket shop rather than just paying at door

That was the greatest disappointment of them all in Amsterdam for me. This is not a "Dungeon", this is a comedy club with a very stiff air. Very ridiculous, is not worth it. Also they claim 9 actors in 11 shows - there were 5 actors in 5 shows. Very boring ones. I was thinking I would be visiting dungeon,... More

Dear Tanja, Thank you for taking the time to let us know how your visit was. Did you visit us on September the 7th? This day we unfortunately had to close two from the eleven shows due to technical problems. We did inform every guest that the experience would be a few minutes shorter than the full tour. We are...

Visited yesterday afternoon to pass time before our flight home. Was a complete waste of money in my opinion. My boyfriend enjoyed it a bit more than me but neither of us were that impressed. Mostly consisted of pitch black rooms and people in your face. We didn't get the full tour which I checked online after we had been... More

Dear guest. Thank you for your review. We are sorry you didn’t enjoy a full tour, a full tour is eleven shows and is about 70 minutes, every show is in a different room. We do have a lot of educational visits because of the learning experience. If you want to help us improve, which we appreciate please let us... More

This is a fantastic attraction! Very scary! The actors are fantastic, me and my mother were terrified! You have to visit the dungeons if you go to Amsterdam! Great gift shop as well, very cheap!

My kid's favourite attraction in Amsterdam , it was a bit scary but he really enjoyed it- even got up on the stage! A little bit of history thrown in too. Only downside is that it is a bit expensive.

We visited with 2 children 9and11. It was fun and scary. The actors were great. A little bit of history is thrown in too. We pre purchased early bird tickets and saved a lot of money.

Very fun and exciting. Not a place for people who are claustrophobic or uncomfortable in dark places. Besides that it's a great way to kill and hour or so and learn a bit about the tortures that happened back in the day...
