I was torn between this attraction and the Hollywood car museum. We love scary movies and I was with 2 teenagers 16 & 19 , my niece who is 21 and my youngest who is 9 , my nephew works at Spooky world New England. Before I went into this "haunted adventure" I asked the lady at the ticket booth... More

My daughter(11) keeps pestering my husband and I about taking her to Busch Gardens for Howloscream but after going through this Haunted House decided she's not quite ready yet! It could've used a little more action and props rather then just having you walk in the dark but still fun!

Granted, I'm a hard person to scare but this place was completely lame. A total waste of money in my opinion.

I feel as if I was set up for a disappointment when I visited here- at night when you are walkin down the street by it they have a lady or a guy in the box that jumps out and scares you..also one that walks the streets..so I decided to try it out. That's where the disappointment starts...they put u... More

My hubby and son enjoyed it. It looks small from the outside but it's bigger than I thought. They liked liked it and that is good enough for me.

We really enjoyed the haunted adventure. It would have been nice for there to be few more actors, but the one they had (that followed us from room to room and jumped out at us a few times) got us a few times. It's a unique attraction with a lot of fun surprises. The reason I marked it lower than... More

If you want to be terrified this is not the place. There is a better place for that experience in Gatlinburg. But our family enjoyed the unknown and anticipation that this place had to offer. The outside is done very well. The inside is a very dark (often pitch dark) which is the attractions main fear factor. I expected an... More

The strength of a haunted house comes from it's actors, not in darkness. This place employed maybe three actors. The sets were nice, but there was no real fear or terror. One actor even broke character to explain his makeup. I was not impressed in the least.

This was the worst experience at a Ripley's attraction. I went to the one in San Antonio, Tx and this compared to that seems like this was a haunted house put together by children. Seriously DO NOT even consider wasting your money or time. If you want to be scared you would be better off someone jumping in front of... More
