I have to commend these people, the mansion was part scary part adventure. Highlight of the entire village strip.

Had gone years ago and while it was fun, it wasn't that scary. I was pleasantly surprised that it is definitely scary now! Not extremely scary, but just enough. They have made several changes and upgrades. It is a must if you are in the area and very reasonably priced!

My wife and I came here several years ago and thought is was more funny and mediocre than scary. This trip, read some of the recent reviews about how it had changed, so thought we would try it out again. Are we glad we did. They had redone all of the rooms, and the actors were relentless with the frights.... More

I was scared and we went at night too so that made it even more scary. Great job on the crew that put this all together.

My husband and I are haunted house junkies. We have been to all the big name haunted houses in the Chicago area. This haunted house blows every other haunt we have been to out of the water! If you want to get scared this one is the best!

Don't go to this place unless you want to get your pants scared off! Definitely the best haunted house I have ever been too. Those guys know what they're doing.

It is a cheaper and better experience than Ripleys. Has live actors throughout. In my opinion a better time. The attraction is more open and active. Not just walking through a dark room like other haunted house.

Kids loved it.I think they thought it would be cheesy but instead they found it scary! The boys are 14 years old and said they would do it again. Anytime you can impress a teenager its a good thing!
