For $13.00 you get the scare of your life. The actors love what they do, and they scare you well. This is the best haunted house I have EVER been into and I love haunted attractions. If you are ever in Gatlinburg, TN (which I recommend, for everyone to go see, it's a beautiful town) you have to come to... More

We had a blast here. Is it terrifying? It can be if you go with the right group and just have fun. Try it!

This place is clearly a labor of love, the attention to detail and the dedication of those involved make this place stand out. It is also terrifying, I wouldn't recommend it to small children. Worth the $13, and then some!

You pay a little bit to get into this attraction, but as soon as you enter the 'mansion', you are shown some neat decorations. It'll probably take you about 15-30 minutes to get through the whole thing, depending on whether or not you are casually strolling. I like this haunted house attraction as opposed to Ripley's because you can see... More

I was very skeptical at first about going here but ended up loving every second of it. My girlfriend and I both actually really enjoyed it and thought that the actors did a great job scaring you. I would recommend anyone here.

So, I am not going to lie...way better then expected!! My husband, our friends and I went in thinking it was going to be kind of lame for adults, however, it ended up being awesome!! You could tell that the actors loved what they did! They were amazing at scaring you and jumping out from just the right places. They... More

Definitely a place to visit during Halloween time. Grab some friends and get scared in the live themed haunted house. One of the best in town!

My husband and our three children did this today and we had the best time ever! This was my kids favorite activity while we were at Gatlinburg!! My kids are ages 14, 12, and 9.

I really like anything to do with Haunted Houses and Halloween. I've been to Scarowinds and Hollywood Horror Nights quite a few times. I don't scare easily and I really enjoyed this. My wife and I went through with a group of girls and they were terrified. You move from room to room but have to find a way out... More
