Our visitors LOVE to laugh and have a good time. They come to be entertained, surprised, engaged and yes... a little bit scared.

“This has definitely been the highlight of my visit to Edinburgh, I couldn't have enjoyed it more!
The actors were all absolutely brilliant and I even got chosen to go down to the bottom of a staircase only to find 'The Torturer' waiting for me. He gave me the shock of my life when he jumped out at me!
I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone who chooses to visit Edinburgh. If you likes thrills, chills and on-the-edge-of-your-seat acts, it's a definite must see!”
5 star attraction
“We had a fantastic time at the Edinburgh Dungeons. Definitely worth a visit. If you're going to Edinburgh this is a must, we couldn't fault anything and would recommend it to anyone. Thank you for an awesome time.”
- The Judge and Courtroom
When I went to the Edinburgh Dungeons for my weeks holiday in September 2015 with my friends from Underhay . Inside it was dark and a bit scary and I didn't know what to expect when I was inside the Dungeon. The courtroom was my best bit of the tour - The Judge was brilliant and the show was great. I enjoyed every minute of it, and I hope to go back again later this year in May or June 2017 with Chris and Ian!”
“I went in expecting the odd scare and a few pictures but OMG it was amazing - the Boat Ride was frightening, the Drop Dead ride was so thrilling I will definitely go again.”
I'll be back
“Went with friends for a day away, got picked for 'The Torturer'. I'll be visiting again at somepoint this week with my partner. Maybe it's my turn to torture 'The Torturer' :D”
A most excellent and frightening adventure!
“I had no idea what I was in for when my friend and I decided to visit the dungeons. I was in Edinburgh only for the day (visiting from Canada) and thought it would be a neat trip. It was so exciting! The cast involved us in every part of the tour. I was enthralled from the first room. The acting, rides, lighting and effects were amazing!! It was so much fun. 10/10 would do again!”
“Hubby & myself had a fab time! We both got picked out, which was sooo funny. I was hauled up before the judge & he was put in the executioner's chair!! The actors were brill & got our group going, even though none of us knew each other.
Our photo on the Death Drop Ride is absolutely hiarious!!
A must do whilst in Edinburgh & we recommend it to all!!”

“I'm not the bravest soul when it comes to scary things but I enjoyed every second in the dungeon! My heart was in my mouth during the boat ride! I was scared stiff thinking I was really on a boat ride stopped by cannibals. The courtroom was hilarious, the smile didn't come off my face! The whole experience was enjoyable and I'm definitely going back!!”
Once in a life time experience!
“If people visit Edinburgh, you have to visit this place!!
The scenery and staff get 11 out of 10? from us!!
On our christmas trip last year; the first place we went to were the dungeons! We were at the dungeons in december, and we absolutely loved every bit of the show!
From the moment we came inside, we were met by welcoming,kind, funny and professional staff that got us laughing right away and got us in the mood for the dungeon experience..
All the actors were amazing and radiant! There were a lot of scary bits and a lot of fun and also as a tourist we got a lot of history as well!
We loved everything and we still often talk about it and we intend to come back to Edinburgh and straight back to the dungeons!”
A really scary date....and that was just the bloke
“The dungeon is absolutely incredible! The actors (and actresses) are both believable and funny in their role and despite the screams even the kids came out laughing. The best date ever. Completely recommend a visit. Thumbs up all around!!”
