We were high af, lolled all the way through


Great fun!

Maybe some of the reviewers don’t have the right expectations. We loved the experience! Very dedicated actors, the kids wanted to go a second time



Die grösste Zeitverschwendung meines Lebens. Langweilig und alles andere als gruselig. Gröster müll. Dreck, nix für og’s. Lieber die 25 euro im coffe shop verballern.



Not worth it. Might be good for kids under 12 but I was bored and wanting it to end! But the beer was cold!


So Much Fun!

Didn’t know what to expect but really enjoyed it


All A Performance

The history totally got lost in the performance of getting everyone involved in a show. I feel like I am still no wiser as to what happened in Amsterdam. The main focus was getting someone from the crowd involved in each performance which felt uncomfortable and forced.


Surprisingly Good Time

My girlfriend took me with her to the Amsterdam Dungeon. It thought that this was really something for kids. But the show was awesome. The Amsterdam Dungeon is really funny and a bit scary!
