What can I say, the whole experience was just amazing. The staff are very engaging and play their parts magnificently. I took my 8 year old and she loved it. Worth a visit if you are in Edinburgh.

This may not be your typical location to visit but it was quite a fun time. It is an 'experience' and you will have a great time if you just 'go with it'..

The actors were good, the storyline was funny, some scare jumps gave me heartattack but it wasn't so scary.

It was not what I was expecting at all but I still really enjoyed it. You are led around as a group into lots of different rooms/areas that are connected with different aspects of Edniboughs history, each with an actor in that makes it come...More

This was a really fun experience and the actors were amazing! Love how they make everyone participate in the experience. It is a bit scary so maybe not the best place for young children to go. But it was really fun and I’ve already recommended...More

I was hoping for the underground tour, but this is largely for families with children. It does give some history of Edinburgh, but reminded me of an amusement park ride. Sadly, I felt my money could have been better spent.

I don't particularly care about scary things and this was a little too ominous for me. To be fair I am a big baby. That being said, I did enjoy myself here. The actors were great. Their lines were funny. The special effects and the...More

We needed a group day out for a work prize and this is what we chose. You can’t take photos whilst in the actual dungeon but if you did then you’d ruin the whole experience for yourself and others. If you find it hard to...More

Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street
is only half one, since buildings only line one side.
But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views
are from Princes Street as a result. From here you
look onto expansive and decorative public gardens
beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s
Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old
town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look

I've been to a couple of Dungeons on my own - visitors are sent around in groups so you wouldn't be on your own as such. You'd still enjoy it for sure but probably more fun with at least one friend with you to giggle with :)
