Pass on this. Bad writing, bad acting, bad rides. Disappointing and the rides are terrible. Skip this tourist trap that is basically a train robbery.

The drop at the end is anticlimactic. HOWEVER, if you let yourself get into the acts in the vignettes, you will enjoy it. Participate w/ squeals and screams getting into it and you will definitely have fun.

Lot's of fun. Really kooky actors that keep you engaged and get lots of audience participation.

Thought the water ride was gonna be open 😩 Tour was good enjoyed that but the water ride and the mini wimpy ride at the end would have sealed the deal!

Loved it but it didn't have the drop zone and the water ride was out of service. :(

This is not much to do with San Francisco history as much as it is like a milder haunted house. Not at all what my family was into. Scared my little girl. I thought it was in poor taste.

Overall it wasn't that scary. The last falling ride was quite dissapointing. The pictures that were offered in the end were photoshoped. The only reason I gave it some stars because I went with a group and had extreme fun. In addition, the sets, props looked authentic. And high five to the actors who were very professional.

From Our Editors

The San Francisco Dungeon condenses 200 years of San Francisco's history into an exciting 60-minute adventure. Bringing together an amazing cast of theatrical actors, the unique and exciting walkthrough experience lets audiences see, hear, touch, smell, and feel the action. The hilarious, fun, and sometimes scary performances wow audiences and the cast alike, and here's why: full-on 360-degree sets with gripping storytelling, 9 interactive shows, 20 live actors, and 200 years of history with state-of-the-art theming and special effects and cutting-edge storytelling. The black comedy of attractions, performances are full of dark, atmospheric humor that offer onlookers a thrill-filled journey through San Francisco’s murky past. After 60 minutes, spectators leave the show having experienced laughs, scares, theatre, shocks, special effects, characters, jokes, mazes, and storytelling.

Lest you get swept up in the past and end up in a time before your ride home was built, one of the dungeon's residents is always there to lead the way through the experience. Contra Costa Times praised the "terrific sets and costumes" and "super fun local actors," who, as SFGate put it, "bring a Broadway-esque level of enthusiasm to their performance."
