This Halloween, the San Francisco Dungeon dares guests to confront their most unsettling superstitions while learning about the city's sinister history.

The attraction will add unlucky surprises beginning Friday the 13th and lasting until Nov. 5.

Tests scattered throughout the underground attraction will push guests to look at their reflections in shattered mirrors, open umbrellas indoors, see the shadows of lurking black cats, walk under ladders and contend with other ominous tokens of bad luck. 

Neither rabbit feet nor pennies on the ground will be available to help ward off the bad luck, so be sure to bring your own. 

A few lucky - or unlucky - visitors will also have the chance to spend an eerie evening in the San Francisco Dungeon. 

The attraction is working with to offer the ultimate Halloween sleepover experience. A few hardy souls will be able to book a private one-night stay in the underground attraction's "Ghosts of Alcatraz" suite on Oct. 30 or 31.

The spooky slumber party package is only available through

Full of menacing characters and spooky surprises, the San Francisco Dungeon aims to transform into a breeding ground of misfortune and folly this Halloween. 

Brave souls looking to tempt their luck and engage in the attraction's superstitious activities can do so while embarking on a 60-minute journey of thrills, laughs and interactive storytelling through 10 dark and amusing storylines.

Each of the scenes and shows are based on real San Francisco history with a dash of the city's urban legends. Get up close and personal with Sam Roberts, a San Francisco gang leader, bar owner and crimper Miss Piggott and her partner in crime Shanghai Kelly.

The journey will take you through the start of the Gold Rush at Sutter's Mill, San Francisco's Chinatown, the city's court system and political intrigues, and more.

In October, though, expect a twist. From the Chinatown Plague to the Escape from Alcatraz, each chapter in the already murky story of San Francisco will be a bit more tainted by unlucky charms and unfortunate hexes this Halloween season. 

Owned and operated by Merlin Entertainments, the San Francisco Dungeon brings to life the stories of the old Bay Area with a full theatrical cast, special effects, gripping storytelling, 360-degree sets, an underground boat ride and the brand new drop ride, Escape from Alcatraz. 

The San Francisco Dungeon is fully accessible under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
