A big ''A'' for the actors efforts. The rest was amateurish. We did not get information on where we were, as this the real dungeons or jus an site for the show. We would have like to learn more on the real life of prisonners.

This was a unique experience. My children are in their early teens and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Had we come when they were younger, it would have been too scary/unsettling for them. Our whole family was glad we visited the Dungeon.
