The name is a little corny, and sort of reminded me of the Hollywood Wax Museum by its title, but what instantly struck me when viewing the interior was that this location was actually used for the theater scene in the film "Somewhere in Time," and among the authentic seats in the auditorium is the actual place where Christopher Reeve...

A dark alley but without anything fantastic. Children may feel a little horror but for adults waste of money.

I wasn't sure what I was walking in to... it was a classic haunted house! Dark winding hallways with people shaking chains and knocking on the walls, and weird diorama-style horror scenes that light up behind windows as you pass by them. Kitschy fun. Seems cheesy, but we screamed the whole way through!

I have to say I did not actually go in. My teenage son and his 3 teen friends went in, and they could not stop talking about how great this was. They had a blast. Some of them said it was the best thing they did on the island. Over the next day, every time they started to tell us... More

This attraction is a walk through type of exhibit, is not very well done and pretty dumb .... don't waste your money.

Only about 10 minutes long with scary creatures throughout. Be warned-very dark-I couldn't see where I was supposed to go-that was scary!

As a young child, I remember being scared to death of the Haunted Theatre! Now, as an adult, I am continuing this family tradition by taking my own children in for a scare and laugh. While mostly cheesy, this landmark as served millions from around the world and will continue doing so for generations to come!

The owner was very informative about what to expect inside. My 9 year old daughter was afraid to go in, and he said we could try it and if we made it through to pay him at the end. There were no other customers around when we went through. I think he had the staff take it easy on us,... More

It is just one of those things you have to do while you are on the island. Take it for what it is and enjoy it.

This was a fun activity to my 9 year old boy. We had a small group that went thru the Haunted Theater. I went first and I think it was scariest for me. It was too scary for my 7 year old daughter.
