Experience San Francisco's Hysterically Horrible Past
The San Francisco Dungeon brings together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, special effects, stages and scenes in a truly unique and exciting walkthrough experience that you see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s hilarious, fun and it’s sometimes a bit scary.
We love it. We know you will too. Here's why:
- Gripping storytelling in 360º themed sets
- Ten interactive shows about San Francisco's dark and sinful past
- State-of-the-art special effects
- Laughs, screams, and top-notch actors
We're the dark comedy of attractions; dark, atmospheric and very, very funny. If we were a movie (we aren't!) we'd likely be PG13.
YES, BUT HOW DOES IT WORK?
The San Francisco Dungeon is a 60-minute journey through San Francisco's past from the Gold Rush to Alcatraz. You and your companions walk through the Dungeon, moving from show to show, guided by our professional actors.
The shows are based on real San Francisco history and legends (minus the boring parts). You'll get up close and personal with sinister characters including Sam Roberts, the leader of the Gangs of San Francisco, and the infamous bar owner and crimper Miss Piggott and her partner-in-crime (literally), Shanghai Kelly.
It's a fully themed experience. That means 360° sets, special effects, and theatrical storytelling. On your journey you'll pass through the narrow streets of San Francisco's Chinatown, Sutter's Mill, scene of the start of the 1849 Gold Rush, the fearsome torture chamber... and see (and feel!) what your life would have been like if you had been sent to Alcatraz. Believe us, it's better than a sightseeing tour of the city!
