Scary fun.

Ok, so this place is a small operation for a haunted house attraction, but it's very entertaining. I'm a haunted house fanatic, so it takes a lot to scare me, but the moment the... read more

My husband and I went in the Ghost Lab and I am a big chicken. The man out front said there were 2 different experiences, one for kids and one for adults. I asked for the kid one. We went through and it was scary but I survived. When we came out i said I was glad I picked the... More

In between chasing boys and doing what else teen girls do,my daughters love anything scary. Going in haunted house helped break up the day for them. My oldest let out a scream you could hear in the lobby. Not the best idea taking my lil ones in. I had to pick them both up to get them to the end.... More

This is such a fun tour for families. It is must do when in Gettysburg. The tour moves through rooms, great effects. Kids of all ages will like it.

Ok, so this place is a small operation for a haunted house attraction, but it's very entertaining. I'm a haunted house fanatic, so it takes a lot to scare me, but the moment the lights go out and the alarms go off-about halfway through- my sister (28years old) was clinging to me like a wet cat. The experience itself, is... More

The ghost lab was fun, not scary. If you are looking for a real ghost adventure and to get scared, the ghost lab is not the place to be. It is however a fun walk thru exhibit.

Since we received free tickets to this with our horseback ride (Artillery Ridge), had some time on our hands, and were already there since we visited the diorama, we decided to try it out. It was ridiculously cheesy. Honestly, if they did away with the last part, where you go through a "haunted forest" that is like something the neighbors... More

Totally cheesy! I gave this place two stars instead of one because my 8-year old kind of liked it. It was like a really bad haunted house. Luckily we had free tickets and didn't waste our money. The place claims to channel civil war ghosts. It was all for fun but it was lame and in poor taste.

Was like going through a Halloween Haunted house. Was neat with good efforts, but hokie in others. Still worth a look see with the kids to entertain and maybe frighten them.

3 of us went in not knowing exactly what to expect. Glad we did, we had a great time visiting this attraction. We jumped and squealed and laughed at each other's reactions. Staff was very friendly and it's inexpensive. Something different to experience in Gettysburg.

This attraction is purely for entertainment with no factual information. A typical carnival walk-through haunted house type set up. This one is is guided by videos played in each stage of the event. My 11yo enjoyed it for how it was intended, while I and my older child just enjoyed watching the younger one. Probably not a great value, but... More
