The Descent: Begin your journey on a rickety mine shaft elevator. As the cable carries you ever closer to your fate, Colonel Jack Gamble will prepare you for the 200 years of history you're about to experience. Groups depart regularly between 11 a.m. and 10 p.m. every day of the week; the event lasts one hour.
Gold Rush Greed: Depravity reigned on the American frontier, and you'll see it all first-hand while learning about violent clashes between natives and settlers.
Lost Mines of Sutter's Mill: This maze of mirrors and tunnels can be quite disorienting, but it's worth the trouble -- as you weave your way through, you'll hear tales of the area's famed mine and search out the last remnants of dwindling gold.
Gangs of San Francisco: In the pocket of corrupt politicians, The Hounds rule Kearny Street. Discover their tricks of the trade as you stroll along.
The Court of San Francisco: Judge Meade's grasp of the law is questionable, but one thing's certain: The punishments he's doling out are as silly as the accusations.
Miss Piggott's Saloon: Ever been shanghaied? Well, fair warning: This feisty barkeep and her partner might plan to do more than serve you a drink.
Shanghai Kelly's Raft Ride: Sold off to serve as "volunteer" sailors, your party will be whisked to the wharf, forced into a boat, and shipped off to sea.
Chinatown Plague Street: Fast forward to the year 1900, and you're face-to-face with The Rat Catcher, who's fighting the Black Death in his own unique ways.
The Ghosts of Alcatraz: Did you know a jailhouse predated the island's federal penitentiary? It housed dangerous military criminals -- not to mention ghosts -- and you're about to meet 'em.
