The meaning of Dungeon in dream | Dream interpretation
(see Cage, Castle, Underground)
Various types of dungeon, prison or jail are common dream settings and they appear at times when something or someone in your life is restricting your sense of freedom.
If you have such a dream, your dreaming mind is urging you to consider whether your loss of freedom is self-enforced; it is urging you to be honest with yourself about the causes and cost of being imprisoned. Such dreams may also symbolize a deep-rooted feeling that you are not able to fully express yourself. When someone else is seen in prison, this refers to a part of yourself that you are unable to reveal to others and even to yourself. When someone is released from prison in your dream, it signifies changes that may have taken place within your life. It is also a sign that you will overcome obstacles that may be holding you back at the moment.

To see a dungeon lighted up, portends that you are threatened with entanglements of which your better judgment warns you.
Dreams of a dungeon symbolize your unexplored subconscious, shadow side, unintegrated aspects of your consciousness. There is a great deal of unintegrated power, wisdom and talent that you have yet to uncover. See Basement, Shadow, Goddess Persephone and Dragon.

A place of desolation and abuse that is revealed in order to warn one to avert the situation
You are tapping into unconscious negative beliefs. Dungeons are places of torture and imprisonment, and they correlate with deeply hidden and unconscious thoughts and fears. They were a place where people were kept locked up and tortured; therefore a dungeon is the part of the shadow where our most frightening ideas and thoughts create ongoing and unimaginable levels of suffering and pain. There is a sexual element to this image that connects to the fetishistic desire to dominate or be submissive in sexual role play.
A dungeon in this case need not be a fear-inspiring dark and dreary place, but rather a private place possessing the appropriate equipment to facilitate the activities associated with such sex play.
Being in a dungeon symbolizes being a prisoner, Isa. 42:7
