This was very disappointing. It would have helped if we actually knew what we were doing, because we were just walking around a dark cave trying to find the exit. This was also very confusing because opera music was playing in the background. I have...More

The surly guy at the ticket desk should've given us enough warning! This could have been a fantastic visit: excavated underground "caves", used for all sorts of activities under the castle. Sadly, it's a mixture of bizarre wax works in opera costume, dumped bits of...More

We found this by accident whilst wandering on Castle Hill. Really enjoyed it...hardly anyone else in there. You can just wander about exploring the tunnels and there are parts that have no lights at all or are enshrouded in mist with near to zero visibility....More

Thought it was going to be really cool. I should have researched more. Piped in smoke, strange elements, musty. If you have asthma, absolutely avoid. This could have been great; it’s not.

The committee meet to discuss the labyrinth. Wow, a labyrinth, tourists love a labyrinth. We can light it dimly and dramatically with smoke machines for added effect. Hang on, corridors alone might be a bit boring, let's dot small examples of architectural features here and...More

Two friends recommended we check out this place which hadn't turned up in many tour guides, and so glad we did! It's a little taste of Budapest's caves and for a short tour it really packs in some fun elements, like making your way in...More

This is a unique place to visit and certainly not for everyone but we really enjoyed it. It's worth reading the signs before going in to know a little about what lies ahead. The fun is in the exploring, be prepared for darkness and damp

The tunnels are a dark, dank confusing combination of wax museum, opera clothes, Dracula trivia, etc. Not even interesting.
