“Not so scary”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Visted expecting at least some of the tour to be translated in english especially as the actors/guides were aware we were non german speakers. This would have been a great attraction had we been able to understand even a small part of the tour. This seems to be the norm with many german attractions. The only info board that had the info in dual languages was the last one which was a safety warning about the ride before you finished the tour. Shame as this would have been a really good day out but wouldn't recommend to any non german speakers.

For a one time visit , it is a good place to see . The performers are good and the whole act is not very scary. Book the tickets online to get a good discount

“Quite nice”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

I didn't find the shows scary, but had a good time there nevertheless. The actors deliver a quite exciting performance in which they continuosly include the visitors.
In my opinion, it's rather amusing than frightening. Language is German

“I don't really get scared easily... but it was fun watching the girls in our group...”
Reviewed 18 December 2013

We arrived early to take part in the English tour, and got our tickets the day before from the tourism office at a discounted price... The staff played their characters really well, it was fun watching the girls in our group scream, haha... They really get the group involved in the tour.

I would recommend visiting this attraction if you happen to be in Hamburg.

“A "must" in Hamburg”
Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

I'm surprised to see this attraction so low in the TripAdvisor list. It is very interesting, the actors are really good and the place is very well constructed and decorated. I warn you, if you don't speak German, go to the English show (weekends), and go early because is a really popular place. Yes, is a bit more expensive than the regular tourist attraction, but is worth it, and you can find coupons for it in many hostels! Ask your hotel/hostel receptionist.
