My boyfriend and I decided on a whim to give this place a try as we were walking down the main street on the island. The admission is inexpensive ($10, I think). I was very surprised at how scared I got - I grabbed on to the shoulder of a poor mother whom I had never met as we were... More

For a little place ran by just one guy on the day we went, it was awesome. I love to get spooked and he did it. All of the exibits were really creepy looking and I just wanted to sit and look at them. (The owner had other plans lol). Come to find out some of the exibits had really... More

I brought my nearly 7 year old & 11 year old boys here & they are still talking about this experience. The wax figures were a little hokey for myself, but they were scary for the younger crowd. We had to make a dash for the exit due to the kids' nerves & my boys still question whether it was... More

The tickets should cost about $2 per person, rather than $7. My daughters, ages 12 and 10, were extremely underwhelmed. There was nothing remotely frightening in here.

This is a fun haunted house/theatre. The man behind the creatures also made some famous movie characters like the Thing, Howling and also the Dark Crystal. They will make sure it isn't scary for little kids. Many laughs and few screams! The scare team was great!!

So this is basically a wax museum. You look through the glass a different monsters. There is a lot of dark rooms or corridors with noises throughout the house. Nothing will grab you or touch you. This might be too scary for younger kids. Younger teens might find the monsters a little cheese, but will probably get a fright. Older... More

I thought it was alright but kids would love. It's cheap enough to do so I would recommend doing it.

This is a standard walk-through haunted house with several well-presented scenes. What makes it special is that it has its own ghost!

I love this place. We go every time we're on the island. I went as a child and now bring my own children. It is not like your typical haunted house but that is what makes it so much fun. My children find it a riot. It's not the odd scenes that make it scary, it's the living creatures that... More
