Tour description provided by Viator

San Francisco Dungeon, the first North American outpost of Europe’s popular attraction chain, is open and ready to shock and surprise visitors at Fisherman’s Wharf! This interactive theatrical experience covers 200 years of San Francisco’s often dark and dirty history. You may laugh, you may scream, you may end up in the clink — it’s all part of the fun as live actors draw you into their fascinating tales of the Gold Rush, Alcatraz, Chinatown and more. Choose admission to the Dungeon only, or combine with admission to Madame Tussauds wax museum.

You may arrive at the San Francisco Dungeon anytime during opening hours. Conveniently located in the heart of Fisherman’s Wharf, the Dungeon puts on a 1-hour interactive tour that fits perfectly into your day of sightseeing in the city. After entering, join the next group beginning a tour through the Dungeon. You'll move in order across all nine live-actor shows, which take you through 200 years of San Francisco history. Amazing costumes, intricate sets, authentic performances and one creepy boat ride make for one of the city’s most unusual and memorable experiences. For a list of the interactive shows, see the Itinerary section below. Upgrade option:Choose the combo option when booking if you want to also check out the Dungeon's neighboring attraction, Madame Tussauds, where you can mingle with lifelike wax versions of worldwide celebrities like Johnny Depp and Beyonce Knowles.
