I'm a huge horror fan. I brought my sister to this location on a Sunday night. The décor is beyond belief. It's like walking into different movie sets of horror films. It's very interactive. At one point it felt too real. So I guess I got my money's worth. I recommend it for anyone who is up for a fun... More

Me and a few of my friends went to times scare for a fun experience and a good memory, but found it extremely inappropriate once we got there. It was my friends 13th birthday and she had been excited for this for a long time, but upon our arrival, the man at the entrance started sniffing us, making us question... More

Me and my husband are on holidays from Australia, we went to times square on a sunday night and seen the tittalation burlesque show. The show was a great laugh, but the haunting wasn't that great. Saying that in Australia we have a great haunted house and cabaret show, so it really can't compare. But if you are into someone... More

I've passed this place a million times in Times Square and finally decided to go in. After seeing the garish price of $30 a person for admission, I went onto Groupon and bought that instead ( $16 ). When entering, the owner said that he would have matched the Groupon price if I'd gone through them instead of Groupon, so... More

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
