  • Fun and not too scary. Good story. Be prepared to be part of the action (just need to have a sense of humor). Really liked the wax museum as well.  more »
  • Anyone who gives this experience a bad review is missing the point. This tells the story of San Francisco in a very entertaining way. The actors are funny and engaging. I loved it and am now...  more »
  • Great place to visit whenever you happen to be in San Francisco and tells of its dark history. This is a type of trill attraction that works in stages, this means that at first it doesn't seem that scary but it gradually intensifies. There is a drop ride element to this attraction that is maybe a 10-20 foot drop. There is a height requirement and they do give you the option to skip this part if you so choose to. Parental discretion is advised, this attraction has subject matter that some would say is not suitable for young children.
  • Oh boy! Not for faint-hearted. Forewarning - I do not recommend going with kids/toddlers. It might be a horrifying experience for them. I made the mistake of accompanying my 5-year-old, & trust me it scared her like anything. They won't warn you beforehand so it's at your discretion whether to proceed for a super horrifying adventure & history lessons. We started off with a group of 8 people for a 60-minute session. The actors perform excellently & stay in the role no matter what. They won't touch you but dark rooms & scampering will create panic for sure. Be prepared to scream and/or hear screeching, yelping sounds. Finally, the drop ride concludes the session & you feel thankful for coming out alive! #Day2
