San Francisco, CA, USA — Merlin Entertainments’ newly opened San Francisco attraction, The San Francisco Dungeon saved 15 native Bay Area four legged friends not in the canine form. Rats have become the latest addition to the larger than life cast poised to tell visitors about San Francisco’s murky past in this scary and funny 60 minute immersive experience. Featured as part of the welcoming committee, these furry companions are encased in a real life rat condo at the entrance of The Dungeon. The San Francisco Dungeon’s rats were adopted from Rattie Ratz and Coast Side Cavy.
