This was such a fun place to go! The house is very cool and the actors did a great job of scaring you. I would go again.

It appeared to me that the actor(s) made an effort to provide a good experience and they were careful not to touch any of the visitors, but there was just too much "jump out and scare you" for me. Personally, that gets very old after the first time or two. I would have appreciated better visual effects and less "jump... More

I took my 2 children ages 17 and 12 into the mansion. (My 9 year old refused to go) My 12 year old only made it to the 2nd level when he saw the exit sign and decided to leave. He refused to finish going because he was too scared. I left with him. My 17 year old didn't want... More

Of all the attractions that we visited in this area...This was by far the best. We are actually debating going again before we leave! Very reasonably priced for the time spent inside. It is scary and the props are not cheesy at all. The actor inside was really creepy and made the experience really fun:)

We have done several haunted houses and actually did three haunted tours on this trip. This one blows them all away. My 16 year old never gets scared and this one even scared him. This is not for the faint of heart. There is something jumping out at every turn. The girl up front was very nice and was very... More

This is the best haunted attraction in the area. It has classic gags, actors that obviously enjoy having fun with patrons and is detailed in it's theming. We had a group of eleven and the entire group had a blast. They also have a military discount if you don't have a coupon. It's a bit off the beaten trail but... More

My husband made us do it and I'm hold we did. It seemed cheesy but the people moving around inside with the strobe lights and false doors wa worth the money and had us all freaked out.

This was the best, most fun haunted house I have ever been in. No ghastly chain saw, or gruesome horrifying stuff, just spooky, dark staircases in a big haunted house that you will love every second of. And yes, you will scream!

My girls, 7 & 9, & I tried to do the Mysterious Mansion in December but it didn't work out. We sidestepped into G'burg on our way to visit Asheville to go to this haunted house. I really wanted this to be my girls' first haunted house because I had gone to this very one when I was 9, back... More
