The San Francisco Dungeon is a 60 minute journey through San Francisco's past from the Gold Rush to Alcatraz.

We're an exciting mix of 9 live actor shows, 200 years of history, 360° sets, and authentic storytelling.

Take a trip through San Francisco's hysterically horrible past! Our unique take on history has made us one of Europe's best-loved visitor attractions.

But now, for the first time, we have arrived in the USA! San Francisco is the perfect venue; filled with history, intrigue and colorful characters. Find out more.

What an amazing experience!

"What an amazing experience! Our group was not even five steps into the building and we were already loving it! You are immersed in the fun from the second you walk in by the wonderful actors and intricate scenery. My heart raced, and the smile never left my face. We will be back!"


Worth the time and money!
