Whilst walking up 8th Avenue at night we were approached by a zombie who invited us in to Times Scare! A themed fun pub just round the corner from Times Square. It was hilarious! For a small fee you are taken through a haunted house with actors etc and the usual axe weilding maniacs chasing you!! When you survive that... More

The attraction was cool. Different, considering its not Halloween. The actors were great. They stayed completely in character and were believable (considering) This was a fun experience, however if I went back, I would not pay full price. The actual walk through last 15 minutes tops. It was fun/scary, but not worth 30 bucks.

All of the staff was extremely friendly. The attraction was great and pretty scary. After, you end up in a very cool themed bar.

My husband and I took our 17 year old son there for his birthday. I am so glad I purchased our tickets on Groupon because even at the discounted rate this was still a rip off! The entire experience was 5 minutes top! So not worth the money!

My wife and I had wanted to take in this attraction, but found their opening times to be very strange. Not what they say on their website at all. The price for the ticket is really steep for something that they say lasts less than 15 min. The inside is done really well with all the things on the walls... More

Not exactly a polished show but they did indicate this was a new show for them after running a different performance for some time with some similar material. Given they seem to be somewhat seasoned in their time together and at this venue the show did lack lustre and did not captivate. The material was fair and could have been... More

Scared the crap out of me. They offer a shot of fireball whiskey for 5 bucks before you go in. My advice..take 2 or 3 or 4 or 5. ..you are going to need it. If you don't pass out you can eat in their restaurant after you get out...open all year and very affordable.

27 dollars a head bought you 5 actors and about 5 minutes in this place. I think I was more scared of what to expect, which really was nothing. The only good thing was in the end, when you get chased out, that's it. Not worth the money!

When I was first approached by the Times Square Zombie, chills flew down my spine! I later realized that was only the beginning of my fright! The inside was skillfully decorated with very realistic sets and live "monsters." Definitely do not miss this great attraction!
