Itinerary:

The Courtroom -
This is a classic Dungeon's show and a massive crowd-pleaser. We're all guilty... the only question is 'what if?' From witchcraft to inebriation, from being from Dundee to having a mono-brow. BOO the criminals

Witch Hunt -

Our brand new show is our most up-close-and-personal yet. Get right in amongst the Witch Pricker’s interrogation chamber, but protect yourself from accusations of sinister sorcery or be burned alive!

The Torturer -

This show is consistently one of our highlights - delighting and repulsing in equal measure. Just remember, like any artist The Torturer has his sensitive side

The Boat Ride -

Hear what happened when a man and woman were returning from the market and happened across savages on the road. The King's Men are out to capture the savages and YOU have been enlisted to help. Venture into the Caves of Galloway by boat in search of legendary cannibal Sawney Bean and his incestuous clan.

Sawney Bean -

You've found the Bean Family. Unfortunately, it's been a while since they last ate and you look delicious. Find yourself creeping through the clan’s foul-smelling lair and discover the leftovers of lost travelers as the hunters become the hunted.

The Anatomy Theatre -

Step into Dr. Knox's Anatomy Theatre as 19th Century medical students and witness the autopsy of another of Burke and Hare's victims.

Burke and Hare -

Edge your way through the darkness and tombstones of the murky burial ground and find yourself in the very gravest of situations

Street Of Sorrows -

Welcome to 17th Century Edinburgh where the streets are filthy and the plague is rife. Meet the Foul Clenger as he tells you the true story of Edinburgh’s underground plague close.

The Green Lady -

A tale of betrayal, revenge and death and known as Edinburgh’s greatest ghost story, this tale is rich in haunting drama and spine-tingling intrigue. Prepare yourself as the capital’s dark and deadly story is brought to life with this brutal crime of passion  – get ready to meet The Green Lady!

Maggie Dickson -

Welcome to St Margaret's Chapel, the oldest building in Edinburgh. Meet Half-hangit Maggie; she's known for "hanging" around in the Grassmarket. She will prepare you for your last drop, and unfortunately, it's not Whisky.

Drop Dead: Drop Ride -

You've made it to the Grassmarket and a crowd has gathered to see you pay for your sins. Lucky you! You had better put on a good show/death for the awaiting crowds. Your executioner will show you the 'ropes'. Minimum height: 1.4m

Labyrinth -

Welcome to the Afterlife! You'll quickly realize that a lot of the characters look familiar… Try not to bump into anyone, yourself included.

    Make sure you bring a fresh pair of knickers is all I can say.

    The experience was informative and funny. Me and my friends did not know what was coming next.

    Enjoyable throughout.

    The rides were the highlight. The unexpected spooks and lights out were well timed. A bit of history mixed in was quite good

  • 26-Jul-2019

    A big ''A'' for the actors efforts. The rest was amateurish. We did not get information on where we were, as this the real dungeons or jus an site for the show. We would have like to learn more on the real life of prisonners.

    It is an interesting experience if you want to be part of the show. Part of the show are the punishments and you play a guilty party who deserve be punished, what could be funny for others. I would not repeat it.
