Scarey

Me and my husband took our 3 kids here and it was scarey as crap. The guy at the very front had my 10 year old and 17 year old terrified before we ever got into the cart.

I would not give this attraction a penny. My family was merely walking by and checking out the front of the attraction when one of their workers/actors got in our teens' faces standing inappropriately close to them trying to stare into their eyes and "scare" them. He was almost pressing into my niece with his front. We were all immediately... More

This was NOT worth the $54 we spent to get in, $8 of it was for some lame fiber optic "flashlights" The first 2 actors were ok, but as others have said, not enough live actors in there. I have worked in a haunted house before and timing is everything. You can't always get that from motion sensors. It also... More

It's not scary at all, it's just dark so you can't see where you're going. All the "scary" stuff happen behind cages, no one jumps out at you or chases you...my 6 yr old girl was fine going through it.

My daughter was so scared she screamed the whole time and was nearly on the back of the person in front of her. She's 13. Not bad for the price!

We went here and it was okay. There were a couple cool things, but a lot of it was just walking in the dark, waiting for something to jump out at you. We got a combined ticket at the aquarium and chose this as one of our other things to do.

It's really short, but fun. It is full of things to make you jump and laugh. Things can get pretty tight as you go through ( you also have to hold onto the person in front of you. So remember that if you have issues with touching a stranger.)

Scared the younger kids but it could be improved greatly with more real actors and not rely so much on animatronics. It would be hard for me to recommend this to friends visiting here.

Went late one night. Very disappointed...mostly just animatronics...no real people for the most part...no real jump scares which is what you're looking for in a haunted house. Guide guy really didn't want to be there.

I love Ripley's! This was a must it was very short but it was definitely some good scary fun. I'd do it again in a heartbeat!
