Where were the actors? Ripley's is getting by on it's reputation, it's overpriced and sooo disappointing. I left saying, "What the...". Go to the "other" haunted house on the back street, you'll have a much better time.

I'm just reading other reviews and can't believe they were left so cold. I thought it was terrifying. Adrenaline was pumping the whole way through. The whole thing was very well done. Pitch dark and dead bodies hanging from ceiling. I'd highly recommend this!!

Only one working actor in the whole haunt. Crappy outdated animatronics, it was a waste of time. If you get scared easily, you might enjoy this, but if you want a real thrill, go to the mysterious mansion that was worth the money!

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
