What You Can Expect

The Edinburgh Dungeon Priority Entrance Ticket

Skip the Line: The Edinburgh Dungeon

Make your way to the Edinburgh Dungeon and join the fast-access queue. As you enter, allow yourself to be wrapped up in the grisliest events of Scotland’s long history. Live actors greet you at every turn, reenacting disturbing histories such as the botched hanging of Maggie Dickson and Dr Knox’s gruesome anatomy theater. Come face-to-face with Sawney Bean, arguably the world’s most infamous cannibal – but try to keep your head (and your limbs) and not end up on the chopping block.

As you make the approximate 60-minute walk through the dungeons, experience highlights of Scotland’s horrible history through exceptional stages and special effects. Rile at the smells and sights of the plague and learn about the notorious ghosts in Scotland's haunted capital.

Cap off your visit with a heart-stopping experience on the Drop Dead ride. Then test your nerves as you become a victim at the gallows in Grassmarket. At the mercy of the hangman, experience the final moments of terror as the floor falls out from under you.

Very enjoyable journey through the dungeon, and also very informative. Scary at times too. Definitely worth a visit.

Our family enjoyed the experience. The cast did a great job. They really mixed it up between boat rides, drop rides, walks, and interactive shows. Involving the people on the tour makes it much more fun as long as you are aware beforehand that you may be picked to participate.
