Something to do

Your typical haunted house. Not very long. It's something different to do while on the island. Price was around 7$ I think?

Artwork & Special effects were Terrific! We were amazed at the work that must have gone into this. Well worth the admission charge.

We popped in here on a whim and laughed so hard! This is an old school haunted house and worth the time and money. Not gory just creepy with some scary dark spots. We all loved it and would do it again! Don't miss out on this gem!

This is a cute little attraction on Mackinac Island. There are no special effects, just basic creepy displays, and no gore or blood. I think it is probably appropriate for ages 8+, although little kids may enjoy it if they don't mind Halloween-type displays. The hallways are dark and there is a person in the theater who tries to scare... More

The guy that ran this was very nice. It was not scary at all to me and I thought the "monsters" were out of 70's movies but there are some very dark turn and scary sounds towards the end that redeemed the place for me. My 8 year old was freaked out! He was really scared but then immediately wanted... More

If you can't have fun at the Haunted Theater, then there is something wrong with you. It has been there forever and is a classic old time haunt. It's creepy and weird, but that is what makes it so great. A small price to pay for a good time. Came out feeling like I was 10 again. I screamed and... More

Very kitchy, kind of creepy, good for kids, teens and adults. The teen girls hid behind me and made me go first. May be a bit much for the under 6 set

The description of this place led me to picture something completely different. What it ended up being was just a dark, twisting hallway with different windows looking in on dioramas of various monsters. The exhibits all seemed pretty old and cheesy, but it had a certain charm to it. If your easily scared, like I am, it may still give... More

My son and I make sure we visit the Haunted Theatre every time we visit Mackinac Island. It is a combination of mechanical and human touches. It never ceases to make us jump. A very good deal for $7 each. Make sure you pick up a T-shirt from there also!!

I took the tour with my 76 year old mother who wanted to check the place out. She anticipated it being a theater. It was what I expected, being a cheesy walk through maze with 30+ year old paper mache artifacts. Probably best suited for the 8 - 15 year old crowd
