The Amsterdam Dungeon:
We often hear of the cultural blossoming and economic miracle of the Dutch Golden Age, but just how rosy was this famous period and the adjacent centuries? Let the Amsterdam Dungeon reveal a gritter side to Dutch history, from life aboard a VOC ship to the horrors of the Spanish Inquisition. Your journey begins with a descent into the depths via a creek medieval lift. Try not to let the Gatekeeper's warnings or pained screams ahead rattle you too much as you proceed onto the torture chamber. Here you'll meet the star of the show, a craftsman with an unparalleled knowledge of (occasionally) non-lethal pain centres.
Survive the torturer's 'demonstrations' for a calming drink in the Musico Bar... sorry, did we say calming? It seems rather more like you've stepped out of the frying pan and into the fire, as you and your group attempt to escape the servitude of a manipulative magician.
Escaped the Musico Bar? Well it's still not exactly smooth sailing, because now you'll find out exactly what life was like onboard a Dutch East India Company ship- cannonball amputations and all!
From here you'll go onto witness the autopsy of notorious criminal Black John, prove your innocence in a Spanish Inquisition court, and escape the clutches of an insidious witch. Reaching the Dungeon's final stretch will see you make your way through a confusing labyrinth then fight accusations that you aren't in league with the devil yourself. Finish up by watching their newest show, a twisted love triangle called Murder on the Zeedijk.
