My husband and I went for a little fun on our trip. This place was great! I don't scare easy at all but got startled a couple of times. I laughed a lot also. I can't wait to come back and bring my kids to it. So much fun!

This haunted house is very nicely done. The attention to detail was over the top. It was a terrifyingly good experience. It was not too scary but the surprises were plentiful! If you are into scary attractions, this is a must see! Great for the money!

Our boys 16 and 12 wanted to go here. I don't scare easily and it didn't scare me at all..but my 12 year old clung to my arm the whole time..He claims it was because he couldn't see where he was going. It was dark, you feel your way through and someone jumps out at you. The people behind us... More

Very scary! My husband and I had been to the other haunted house in town and decided to try this one. So glad we did! We had a terrific time! The setup was neat. Scary ghouls and goblins everywhere. Only thing I didn't like was we went through an exit door and it took us outside so we didn't realize... More

This was so much fun, probably my favorite thing I did on this vacation. It is a dark maze-like haunted house with live "haunters." I recommend this to anyone who likes a good scare!

The concept of this haunted house is great. You have to find a series of secret passageways to get through the mansion. Though if you don't get out of the rooms fast enough the people will start to come after you. It's very dark and it feels very hot in there when on reality it's only 50 degrees. If you... More

These people know how to scare someone. Lots of dark hallways and spooks and ghouls popping out from dark places. Probably best not to take small children, but all-in-all a great haunted house.

Thought this was more of a museum/actually (rumored) haunted house, did not realize it was more of an attraction until we got there. This was my first ever haunted house visit--I scare easily and oh goodness was I scared. Going in the middle of the day did not make it any less scary. Not sure if they actually touch you... More

Ever watch an old episode of Scooby Doo ? This place is pretty much like being in one. That's not a dig either, it's awesome! The look and feel of the whole place is just fantastic. I'm sorry it took me so long to actually give this place a try..just took a friend there last week!

Not a huge fan of haunted houses ( only because I'm a pansy), but went with the husband. This place was absolutely chilling. I paid with my debit card so the ghouls knew my name and that made it even more scary. Great thrill. Not for the faint hearted.
