CALIFORNIA - THE SAN FRANCISCO DUNGEON TO HOST EXCLUSIVE HALLOWEEN SÉANCES SUMMONING THE DEAD


Beginning Sept. 28, Come Face-to-Face with Spirits who Haunt 
World-Renowned Fisherman’s Wharf Attraction 

SAN FRANCISCO (September 2018) – Have you ever wondered whether it’s really possible to communicate with the spirits of the dead? Do your long-gone loved ones watch over you? Do the deceased have important messages to deliver from the afterlife? Some believe mediums can liaise between the living and the dead, providing rare revelations and spooky insights from beyond the grave. That’s why this Halloween, The San Francisco Dungeon will offer guided séances, offering visitors an uncanny glimpse of the spirits lurking beneath historic Fisherman’s Wharf. The San Francisco Dungeon seances launch Sept. 28, haunting guests until Nov. 4. 

The San  Francisco Dungeon is the live-action attraction at Fisherman’s Wharf that invites guests to journey through the city’s darkest history. In an atmosphere conducive to spirit-conjuring—think creepy décor and an all-knowing crystal ball—the séance will be included with general admission to The San Francisco Dungeon so that you and your friends will have ample opportunities to meet the dead.

CALIFORNIA - SUMMER TREATS TO TAKE A DISTURBING TURN AT FISHERMAN’S WHARF THIS FRIDAY

SUMMER TREATS TO TAKE A DISTURBING TURN 
AT FISHERMAN’S WHARF THIS FRIDAY 
THE SAN FRANCISCO DUNGEON TO OFFER POP-UP ICE CREAM PARLOR 
SERVING BUGS, SCORPIONS, DIRTY ICE CREAM ON FRIDAY THE 13TH

WHAT: 
The San Francisco Dungeon is ditching the sprinkles and serving free dirty ice cream topped with REAL bugs, worms and more.

For one day only – Friday, July 13 – Miss Piggott’s (Not-So) Nice Cream Pop-up Parlor will celebrate National Ice Cream Month by serving macabre and nightmarish ice cream adorned with the most creepy, crawly and terrifying toppings imaginable. This pop-up ice cream parlor will be presented by The San Francisco Dungeon, the only fully immersive attraction of its kind to celebrate the dark side of the city’s history. The ice cream will be free for those daring enough to taste Miss Piggott’s creations. Straight out of foodie nightmares, these “flavors” will include dirty ice cream topped with anything found crawling on the dungeon floor like insects, scorpions and worms.

The name of the pop-up parlor was inspired by Miss Piggott, the beer-slinging, saloon wench who is always looking for a way to get one over on her customers. During the Gold Rush in the 1860s and 1870s, the Bay Area harridan would drug unassuming drunkards with the “Miss Piggott’s Special” - a concoction of brandy, whiskey and gin laced with opium - luring them atop a trap door where they would be shanghaied into the custody of needy ship captains looking for sailors. Similar to the guests in her saloon at The San Francisco Dungeon, she has found a new way to put a little scare into those looking for a sweet treat while walking the Wharf.

CALIFORNIA - NOW OPEN - MADAME TUSSAUDS SAN FRANCISCO NEW ESCAPE ROOM, “ALCATRAZ – THE BREAKOUT”


SAN FRANCISCO (May 23, 2018– Beginning today, Madame Tussauds San Francisco brings the world’s most famous prison escape to life in its new “Alcatraz – The Breakout” escape room, the first in the brand’s 250-year history. Themed after the infamous 1962 escape, the experience opens today on Fisherman’s Wharf, just one mere mile from where it all took place – Alcatraz Island.

Step back to 1962 and follow in the nefarious footsteps of three Alcatraz criminals, Clarence Anglin, John Anglin and Frank Morris, who escaped from America’s most notorious prison.

Be cunning. Be brave. Be smart. Like them, you’ll need strategy to survive. You’ll also need to be ballsy as hell. Unlike them, you’ll only have 60 minutes to break out. Crack the code and solve the puzzles before the guards catch you.

CALIFORNIA - San Francisco Celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Summer of Love in 2017

A Year Full of Exhibitions, Events and Activities 

Explore the Summer that Changed Everything




Oct. 10, 2016 - In 1967 nearly 100,000 young people converged on the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, turning San Francisco, CA into the epicenter of a cultural phenomenon known as the Summer of Love. During this transformative time, music, fashion, art and new ideas flourished and there was a feeling that everything was possible.

That feeling never left the city. The young hippies that gathered in the city 50 years ago, and the sons and daughters of those who wore flowers in their hair, went on to stand up for civil rights and the environment, dared to question authority and still flock to the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood, forever linking the city to the counterculture and the ideas it launched, nurtured and spread.
