Well done! You've found the Bean Family. Unfortunately, it's been a while since they last ate and you look delicious.

Will you escape, or become the cannibal's next fresh meat?

What you'll learn

  • Are Cannibals house cave proud?
  • What would they like to pickle?
  • Were the King's men successful in catching Sawney Bean?

Dungeons Uncovered

This show uses many special effects which have to be carefully timed to work with the actors' performance. How do they do it? We've constructed the set so that they can control the effects.

“I visited on Thursday after a friend begged me to go. At first I was terrified and nearly bottled it as I walked in. I am so glad I didn't as it was amazing, although I was terrified and screamed the loudest all the way through. The actors and actress' are brilliant, the stories were great and the staff at the gift shop and photo shop were extremely friendly. Definitely the highlight of my visit to Edinburgh. I will be back in the future!”
