I bought tickets for my husband and myself in advance of our weekend trip. The reviews and descriptions led me to believe it was a sort of attraction that appeals to me. We loved the humor and the bit of history we learned. The characters acted a bit strained at times. They had a few hiccups. But, I didn't care. I went for the giggles. And, I had a lot of those. The humor can be a bit on the subtle side.

I didn't just giggle. I let out a few snorts and at least one solid guffaw (maybe two. or three). I was scared and shocked more than a few times. The crew makes great use of special effects and lighting.

I would visit this attraction again if I thought that they would give fresh material to their actors. But, as it is, it is definitely a fun and lively way to spend a rainy hour near the piers in San Francisco.

Very talented artist. It's a great show and it's very interactive. If you want to have an adrenaline rush... this is it.

If history good and bad were described this way, we would all be historians by now. :)

It appeared a number of staff were ill and the attraction was also short staffed. The entertainment value of the Dungeon is great with plenty of laughs for everyone.

The ‘Drop’ ride is an anticlimax especially after the highly engaging Alcatraz scene.

All in all though a thoroughly good way to entertain teenagers and older members of the family

We thought it was going to be scary, and it was not at all. I scare easily and I only jumped once.
The actors were horrible. My sons used to be in plays while in middle school and the actors in those plays were better. Don’t waste your time or money.

This was the best comedy show around! It was interactive with the audience, it was extremely funny, and every room brought a new theme that entertained as much as the last. The live actors are awesome. A must go to in San Francisco.
