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!

I have to say this was the worse haunted house I've ever been to!! There were maybe 5 people working inside the whole haunted house. They weren't even scary. For the amount of money they charge, it should've been great. Do NOT waste your time or money!!! Go somewhere else!!

If you are visiting NYC, specially Manhattan, you just can not skip it! It is amazing place, specially in the evening when the lights from different advertisements flashing everywhere. There are always crowded, full of music and different kind of languages. You can feel the pulse and the heart of NYC. It is really amazing!

Times Square is alive, exciting, crazy, fun, scary, full of all kinds of smells good and bad! Be prepared to do a great deal of walking and wear comfortable shoes. Bring some bills to trade for a photo with the naked cowboy, check out broadway and take time out for a show if possible. sign up for a bus tour,... More

Yes it is crowded, chaotic, and could be overwhelming especially with kids but there's an air of excitement like nowhere else! Been here several times and still can't put my finger on it. Can't really figure out what makes this spot so thrilling. Perhaps the enormous colorful billboards, the large extravagant shop displays, or just the collective excitement of the... More

Stopped here to see the Haunted attraction but fell in love with the atmosfear and the fun, comfortable Kill Bar! Great talking to the other locals and spooks. Can't recommend enough for adult macabre fun!

I love the concept of this bar. If you're a fan of Halloween this is the place to be. It's dark in there, but it's that way for a reason. The staff was friendly and appropriately dressed for the occasion. If you're in Times Square you should stop by.

My husband and I had some time to kill after supper one night before we caught our bus tour. I wasn't sure about it but my husband thought it would be fun. It was AMAZING! The best haunted house I've ever been too. I was terrified!!! Lol. The experience starts as soon as you purchase your ticket. Fortunately it wasn't... More

We took our 10 year old son here this past weekend after much pleading on his part. We were all made to jump before we even got to into the exhibit - the start up the stairs with the loud noises scared him to the point of wanting to leave - we were let back out into the lobby so... More
