“good acting”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We're a senior couple and were expecting some histrorical references to Moose Jaw establishment.Who were the citizens involved in boot-legging?Surely some of Moose Jaw's upper crust made money this way and was anyone arrested and scandelized.Did the distillation occur in these tunnels or at some other location.How did the tunnels figure into the overall business?
The actors were very entertaining and very good and this would be a fun activety for a younger audience.

“Entertaining and Educational”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

I just recently moved to Regina, SK and my mom was up visit for the long week-end. We decided to take this opportunity to explore a few of the neighboring cities and towns. We visited Moose Jaw on the Monday of the Victoria Day week-end and were quite surprised to find the downtown a ghost town. Almost all stores and even all restaurants were closed for the holiday. Luckily, for us the Tunnels of Moose Jaw were still open so we have something to do.

I had heard mixed reviews of the tunnels from co-workers but found them to be entertaining if light on actual facts (Chicago connection is based on stories passed down through a local family). However, it was by far one of the most fun I have been on in a long time. The guide "Gus" was having the time of his life and you were dragged along for the ride.

My great-grandfather worked the railroad and it was heartbreaking to take to the Chinese immigrant tour. Seeing the toilets and beds that these immigrants were forced to live with is shocking but an excellent reminder.

Both tours were great but for completely different reasons. Each tour is 50 min and they each run every hour.

“Interactive experience”
Reviewed April 21, 2013 via mobile

Before you go year the tunnels you need to know that you're part going to be part of the cast. The actors interact with you in telling the story of Al Capone and the bootlegging. Because it's more of a production it was hard to tell what was real and what was creative expression. It was a fun experience though.

“very entertaining”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

It is well worth checking out....during the tour actors come along and stage a scene where you can be part of show...it is fun and I believe you will enjoy it. At the end of the tour you can purchase a variety of items displaying Al Capone....

Good way to tell the history of the the town to make it interesting for all ages. I went with my daughters grade 5 class and we had a blast. The storytelling and acting was very good.
