Stay Overnight at Alcatraz Suite at the San Francisco Dungeon

Sped Halloween in the Dungeon
Stay Overnight at Alcatraz Suite at the San Francisco Dungeon
If you dare! This Halloween, you can experience a thrilling night at the San Francisco Dungeon.   For something a little extra spooky, book the “Ghosts of Alcatraz” jail cell Halloween night for up to four total guests. 

Accommodations come complete with:

  • Four twin-sized prison beds in the “Ghosts of Alcatraz Suite” jail cell
  • Dungeon issued PJs and midnight snacks
  • A spooky bedtime story from a Dungeon resident before being tucked-in for a not-so-comfortable night’s sleep
  • VIP entry for each guest to the final San Francisco Dungeon show of the evening on the night of their stay
For those who survive the night, breakfast in their cell bed will be provided along with a swag bag of Dungeon goodies including one Merlin Annual pass per guest (valued at $279 each), which provides access to more than 30 U.S. attractions.


I love Halloween and like the idea of something for adults and teens. Get more info here.
