Kids begged to go and so we went ahead and let them. First off- go ahead and find the ghoul with the discount tickets- always worth it. Then- there is a small waiting area where you can take some pictures. The entire experience takes about 15 min- good for ages 10+

It was expensive for what was simply a few people in costume occasionally making noise/comments, it lasted less than 10 minutes, it was dreadful. I wouldn't waste your money visiting this as it looked very cheap/basic and not many people working in the actual attraction.

Definitely not for children, so don't think that its a family orientated haunted house. This place will scare the daylights right out of you. My 26 daughter had to sleep with the lights on and made me go to the bathroom with her that night (we were spending the weekend in NYC at a hotel). They have realistic props, sounds,... More

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.
