We visited in April of this year for my son's 8th birthday. We have 2 11 year olds, 2 8 year olds and 1 7 year old. We had a blast! Hearing them squeal and run out - only asking to do it again was worth the $12!

We thought this was a cool house. The "creatures" were really good at sneaking into dark places and scaring us. It was great fun for the money. I would go again.

Read the rave reviews and decided it was a must. Glad we went. I went with my husband and was excited the moment I saw the mansion. We were in a group of 8 and wouldn't recommend any more people than that. It was a lot of fun. They allow u to go thru it without a guide, so it... More

My five year old was frightened to the core, 7 year old was freaked out but later couldn't stop talking about it, my 9 year old finished the tour and had a blast. It's scary even as an adult, kids wouldn't do it again, but they are still talking about it two days later. Would not recommend for ages 9... More

Not scary at all! and kinda expensive for a walk through that was pretty quick! The employees tried really hard to scare us though! I think we may of made one to many jokes the whole time so it wasn't scary!

Very fun and worth the money. There were plenty of scares and the house was setup well. The actors did a good job.
