Dont Miss Out On Visiting The Amsterdam Dungeon

The city of Amsterdam in the Netherlands attempts to show history through an interactive adventure. Live actors, a ride, shows and special effects simulate historical dark and bleak times.

The Amsterdam Dungeon delivers on the basis of a great cast of actors, special effects, stage, decor, scripts, a unique, exciting walk through the show that you can see, hear, touch, smell and feel. It’s also very funny and sometimes a little scary.

Attractions

  • Torture Chamber: The Torture Chamber is the most graphically implied exhibit in the entire Dungeon. The (female) torturers line up the ‘prisoners’ against a wall and picks out a young male visitor for the demonstration. The visitor is strapped in to a chair surrounded by torture devices, such as the dreaded appendage cutter, the torturer places the appendage cutter near the male’s groin and ‘demonstrates’ the device ‘inch by inch’.
