The people who built this place did a great job. Nice people who are always in their role. The stories during the shows are great, but hard to follow as I was continuously looking for what could scare me. Scary and above all a very funny experience

I was a bit skeptical going into this attraction because although it sounded great online, it looked a bit tacky in reality. However, I was pleasantly surprised once the walk through the dungeon began. The Amsterdam Dungeon is basically a history lesson made fun with several charming actors engaging with the audience in interactive ways as you make your way... More

Was looking forward to visiting here, from the outside looked promising. Actors were good, can't really fault them. But as for being scared, you will be disappointed. And if you don't like being picked out to participate in the acts then this is not for you. Overall I found it very boring and was waiting for it to be all... More

My boyfriend and I went there this afternoon and it was brilliant. The actors were fantastic, I was crying with laughter as the state some of us (myself mainly) of how scared and jumpy we were! Would defiantly recommend it! Thank you for a great time!

Brilliant, better than London, the staff really seem to take their job seriously and are not embarrassed to act. They encourage crowd participation, we really felt welcome here. The shop at the end could be better I think, not a big selection of souvenirs.

I really enjoyed the dungeon experience. This was my first one and honestly at times your heart was truly in your mouth. It was let down by some seriously dated special effects (if that's what you could call it) but definitely worth the trip here. Easily accessible. Bear in mind you cannot store bags anywhere so don't go here after... More

After really enjoying the London Dungeon, I thought that this would be a different experience involving the history of Amsterdam. I would recommend that if you have been to the London Dungeon not to go to the Amsterdam one as well as most of it used very similar scenes and scripts however the London Dungeon is quite a bit longer...

Dear Courtney, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The London Dungeon is our flagship store where it all began. Historically, the London Dungeon is our biggest attraction and leading for all the other Dungeons. Luckily every attraction has its own specific and unique history which leads to an unforgettable experience. Kind Reagrds, The Amsterdam Dungeon More
