Do you have the guts to enter the Dungeon this Halloween?

Guys, ghosts and gory gals, get ready for some scary fun as the Edinburgh Dungeon brings back our toe-curling Séance show for our Home of Halloween event!!

If you think you can summon the guts to go on an underground journey through Edinburgh’s murky history and take on a séance of a lifetime then you sound like our type of traitor!

Séance...Is Anybody There? Sees us take you back to the dark depths of 1828 when Burke and Hare, the notorious Edinburgh anatomy murderers killed their last victim, Madgy Docherty. 16 victims in total succumbed to their murdering spree. Eight years later a collection of miniature coffins containing wooden dolls were found on Arthur's Seat, now housed in the National Museum of Scotland… but are their poor souls really at rest? We dare you to come and find out!

Experience the ultimate Halloween underground journey as you navigate your way through 100’s of years of murky city history. With live actors, immersive theatrical sets, spectacular special effects and a thrilling underground ride, not forgetting jumps and screams around every corner, this is the Dungeon but scarier than you know it!
