We bought the tickets as an add-on to Madame Tussaud's and it was a good way to get a bit more history on the darker past of San Francisco. The actors were really good (but the Miss Piggett one dragged on a bit) and the audience participation was very funny (why is it I always get picked?). There was a drop ride at the end (around seven feet) for the escape from Alcatraz section.

This was such fun! I have to give credits to the actors, who were all superb! They certainly went all the way to make their characters as realistic as possible! They even had audience participation and i wish i was called. San Francisco tourists should have this tour as a must!

This is silly fun. The ride at the end is just a single 10 foot drop, no big deal. The lack of an actual experience on the ride at the end didn't distract.

This 1 hour tour takes you through some of the history of San Francisco. This was a fun way to spend part of an afternoon and since it's next door to Madame Toussards Wax Museum it's good to do both at the same time.
