I really like Ripley's and really feel we got a bad deal. The people on the street are great and have fun with everyone walking by. My two teenage kids and I went up and had one other couple. I think this would have been fine but at the last minute a couple with a small child came up. The... More

I thought this would probably be a waste of time and money. My husband loves haunted trails and houses so I agreed to go through it. I was shocked. Our tour guide was really creepy and did a great job.. The costumes and make up are great! It's really dark. You have an option to purchase a light for $3... More

I really thought it was going to be really corny and touristy -but it actually is pretty decent, and the characters are played really well - even got a grown man screaming at some points. Very entertaining!

I give this one 5/5, I've seen the reviews of a "less enthusiastic" staff but every time I've went, the "dead" played their parts pretty well at being less enthusiastic about anything (like I would imagine) and the wisecracking elevator guy/stumpy/William played their parts to a tee, in joking around and giving me the business as I would heckle them....

Stumpy, I think was the name of the half man outside was a hoot!!! We went back several times just to play with this particular character. On our last night in Gatlingburg, my boyfriend and I decided to take the haunted tour. We had a good time except they tell everyone to hold on to the person in front of... More

Not a horrible haunted house but a lot of time just walking in the dark. Maybe 3-5 people working the place and people in the rear miss all the scares. Lots of great Props that colud be re positioned to better effect a group scare such as huge swap monster and a couple motion activated items that could be placed... More

It was a fun haunted house, but too scary that you cannot take smaller children with you. We were talked into buying light sticks and were the only ones in the tour with them. You have to stay as group holding onto each other's shoulders. It was fun and fine for families with smaller kids.

Ok, I'm an adult and I know it's all fake, but there are enough surprises in there to give even my skeptic self a good yelp. I'm not at all jumpy but I got a few good jolts.
