Pretty cool not to scary

This was pretty cool but not to scary. It's more for younger people. We had a good time but after going through Mystery Mansion this was just not as scary.

Don't waste your time or money on this! Unless the have changed it since last summer it is the worst haunted house that I have ever been to. It started out promising with actors dressed in make up and giving you a spooky speech about not touching stuff and that you need to have one hand on the shoulder of... More

This was super scary but it was entertaining . The kids enjoyed it . You take 2 elevator rides one up to house and one down to the exit. Not for claustrophobic people.

There are 2 actors in this attraction. The effects are ages old. Ripley's is normally good at updating things but they have let this fall short.

The Last Time We Went Wasn't Very Scary It Wasn't As Intense The Last Time But This Time It Scared Me And My Family Was Scared Too. I Am So Proud Of Ripleys For Making So Good Of A Haunted House.

My 8 year old son wanted to go here and I thought it would just be a little scary but OMG it was one of the scariest haunted houses that I have ever been in. Unfortunately, it was too much for our 8 year old and looking back I wouldn't have taken him in but would definitely recommend this for... More

I'm a grown man so nothing in a haunted house is going to "scare" me. Still this place was a test in endurance if nothing else. Hanging bodies and swinging chains around every corner is pretty standard stuff. The almost total darkness was the chill factor. At one point my little group of strangers were stymied in a small room... More

When I first saw this haunted adventure building, I knew I wanted to do it, being a lover of horror movies, etc. I thought it was going to be little pictures and stuff that had myths on them (just like Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum) but boy was I wrong! It was a very fun haunted house, where you... More

We had a really good time. It was scary but not so bad the . We would definitely try it again. It had some really good animatronics. We only had one issue. My 7 year old and I went through with a mom and her little girl. The little girl insisted on being between me and her mom. That was... More

We did this about 5 years ago and it was scarier. Maybe for kids under 12, but not for teenagers or adults. We won't do it again.
