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.

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’.

- Ship’s Doctor: Looks at ship’s doctor’s surgery where the surgeon gives witness of the brutalities of 18th century field surgery at sea.
- Council of Blood: A short film about the terror brought the Netherlands by the Spanish Inquisition in the 16th century. An Inquisition court is then held similar to the Judgement of Sinners show in the UK, but the ‘Inquisitor’ is more menacing with his humour.
- Ghosts: Using atmospheric special effects to animate the ghost story of a woman convicted as a witch in the 16th century and brutally tortured before being burned at Dam Square.
- Labyrinth of Lost Amsterdam: A disorientating and eerie mirror maze themed around the winding, disorientating streets of Amsterdam.
