It sure is dark in there. We were told that if you didn't exit a room within 30 seconds once the door had opened then you were locked in there for a further five minutes. Didn't hang around in any room long enough to test this out I can tell you. Probably a bit low tech compared to some places... More

Went in for a laugh expecting a bit of a scare. It was terrifying. Pitch black and no idea what was coming next. No spoilers but definitely worth a visit. Don't take the children.

It was a terrible place, in a good way! If you want to have a scary experience this it is! We were talking about this after hours. Maybe too scary for young children but teenagers can give it a try. In the first room I thought, that this didn’t start very scary, is this more for children, but in the... More

Me and my two girls 10 and 9 went in wanting a fright! We only went for the less scary version and were proper terrified! There were three German kids with us in our group, the youngest cried all the way through. If you want to be scared then this is a great thrill otherwise be warned!!!!

I wont spoil anything but at €7 I think this is well worth it. Gets the adrenalin going and some genuine surprises, better than any ghost houses I have been in the UK, not suitable for children though.

Not for small kids but for adults who don't take life too seriously it is a screech. Very dark in there.

From the outside of the haunted house you might think it is an experience similar to a ghost train at a British fun fair or the haunted mansion at Disney I.e. not actually that scary. Fortunately we read some of the reviews on here before we went in so we knew that very likely this wasn't the case! I'm not... More

I thought this was to be a rubbish gimmick and a waste of money and my husband and I did not want to really do it, however our children were persistent. I am not going to say much as it will give the experience way but its is VERY scary, frightening and thrilling. Not for little kids!

Such a disappointment! Very expensive & not well done at all. This is not something i would usually take the children on, & I wish I had said no. When specifically asked "if it was too scary for children" there was a definite No! There are two options adult & child. We took the child version & entered with our... More

A good scare is not easy t evaluate but just being n a totally dark room, not being what would appen or even wonder if everything s OK can be scary. Simply put, you are not in control and don't now what s up. My wife and I gave it a try. We seniors at 63 loved the thing. Some... More
