The San Francisco Dungeon Reviews & Ratings
This was a fun experience and I have never been to anything like this before. If you are looking to kill an hour while near the Fisherman's Wharf then check this out. Only reason why I'm giving this 4/5 is because the check in process was a nightmare- no staff in this section to tell you what the deal is. I had to go over to the wax museum which is attached and ask when the tour was going to start after 15 minutes of waiting. Apparently you needed to buy tickets at the wax museum as well, which the employee did not inform me. So when an employee finally showed up to check everyone in, I had to go back to the wax section for them to validate my groupon. I lost my place in line, which wasn't a big deal since we still got in, but the employee from the beginning should have asked if I had a ticket ready. There are no signs that say 'check in next door'. So, a bit annoying to begin with but all the actors do a fun job. This is great for families but beware- they might pick you for one of the scenes, so be ready to participate! This was one of the only times I ever bought a ride photo, it's a fun memory to look at.
Good fun and diverting for an hour. If you have done a dungeons in other places, it follows a similar pattern of shows and settings. However, it was great to learn a little bit of local history, all with the classic Dungeons humour and slight scares. The Chinatown bit was very good, as was the Alcatraz scene. If you want to fill an hour in a fun way, this is just what you need.
During the tour of the dungeons, in the bar scene the lights go out and suddenly you get picked in the mid back with some kind of pointed object. If you have a bad back like I do it hurts to be jabbed three times in same place I went in a Monday and 6 days later it still hurts. People with disabilities need to be informed about this, and /or need to be able to sit in their own chairs. I had my walker with me.
Went here recently with my wife and teenage son and all of us were very impressed with this attraction. The actors did a great job and the special effects were well done. This was far better than the Madame Tussauds attraction which is beside this attraction. Did both because I had a combo ticket which represented good value for money. Would highly recommend it.
do not go. worst experience ever. and if you just want to go for the drop ride DONT. it’s a huge let down. “thriller of the year my butt”
