Amsterdam Catacombs Escape Room

Amsterdam Catacombs has been named the scariest escape room in the world. In the dungeon of the Posthoornkerk, you will discover which dark secrets are hidden under this (un)holy ground. Because this escape room is a cross between an interactive theatre with actors and an escape room, you will actually come face to face with your worst nightmares. This is how you become the protagonist in a real horror adventure.

Amsterdam Dungeon

Whoever enters the Amsterdam dungeon is taken through the dark past of our city. After you end up in an ancient torture chamber, you have to find your way past the executioner as you learn more about the story of the Flying Dutchman. Usually, the shows are already scary, but an extra scare effect is thrown on top during Halloween.

The Army of Horror

During Halloween, the interactive Instagram museum Upside Down Amsterdam will be taken over by The Army of Horror. Instead of the colourful and cheerful energy of the museum, The Army Of Horror takes you into their horror world. The rooms that are typically cheerful have been transformed into their darkest version. Be careful, because before you know it, your whole world will be turned upside down.
