I bought a package deal with the aquarium so I got my money's worth. I personally did not find this to be at all scary but there were younger people on the tour with me who, by their screaming, found it to be frightening. I would suggest going only if it is part of a package deal with the aquarium.

I overall enjoyed the haunted adventure, yet feel some areas of it could of had some more scares to it. I wasn't too fond of one of the workers there, he just wasn't that good. However the other worker was great. I would still recommend this attraction.

My husband and I spent our 6 month wedding anniversary in Pigeon Forge TN and came to Gatlinburg to visit some attractions here. My husband likes haunted houses and adventures but I don't. But we did come to see the outside of this and it was too freaky/scary for me to go through the rest of the haunted adventure. I... More

Because of my wheelchair, we were taken through by ourselves. Live actors tried to scare, but left a bit to be desired. I laughed mostly at the attempts to frighten us. A waste of money.

Waste of cash. The staff was not friendly whatsoever. They were rushing us to leave. NOT SCARY AT ALL. It will leave you deaf though from all the loud popping noises. Never again.

This wouldn't scare a 2 year old. Was very boring. Need to update it and try some new tactics on scare.

I thought about giving this place a chance although I heard so much negativity about it in the strip from the locals and tourists. Well since this is a one time thing, I decided to go. I passed by night time and asked a simple question to an older man or woman who was standing at the front and worked... More

I went through here 12 years ago with my father and younger brother when we were both little and I thought it was dumb then, but hoped it had changed. It was exactly the same and it was boring and wasn't scary after the very first thing in the beginning. You spend 60% of it walking in a dark hallway... More

Kind of lame, but some good fun. Not a bad value when part of the aquarium value ticket. Most of the walk-through consists of feeling your way along in the dark with the occasional burst of air or scary screech from cheap speakers. Only took about 15 minutes. Good for a quick laugh, though it would have been nice if... More

Love this attraction. This time of the year, not many people in the haunt to scare you, but just the effects and set up is scary enough! If you like to be scared and don't mind people laughing at you, i recommend this attraction. I do not recomment this attraction for those with very young children, faint of the heart,... More
