Anyone looking for something to do on September 16th and in the San Francisco area will be interested to learn that the San Francisco Dungeon are putting on a late night event to educate and terrify you.
The San Francisco Dungeon opened in June 2014 and is the first American Dungeon experience. There are already several in Europe including two here in Britain. Wicked Wednesday has been going for a while now with tickets selling out, but after a chat with the Dungeon marketing team, they’ve offered Steampunk Journal readers discounted tickets with a hefty 23% off! That takes the normal price of $35 down to $27. September 16th is the Victorian takeover and the organisers want you to go in your finest Victoriana and steampunk garb.
Part of the world famous Madame Tussaud’s entertainment, the San Francisco Dungeon is an interactive entertainment experience that features live actors dressed in the clothes of the day. They’re not just there to point you to the gift shop, though. As far as they’re concerned, you’re in old San Fran’ in the late 19th century. There’s even a murky boat ride to take you through the history of the city. The attraction is a 360º immersive experience with sights sounds and smells of the day.
