I am not a funhouse or haunted house person but this was a fun place to visit, very inexpensive. My friend didn't like it but she hates haunted houses. We went as a group and it wasn't too scary in my opinion.

Went there thinking I wasn't going to get scared, but I did. With two actors constantly jumping out and scaring you, hanging over you, or blasting you with an air gun, it was worth it. If been to bigger and more staffed places and didn't even flinch. Plus its a lot better than the other place there.

The reviews on here blow my mind. As a the owner of a haunt this place is the best in Gatlinburg. The atmosphere is well done. Off the beaten path on main and tucked back a block where you would expect a "real" haunted house to sit. Of course this isn't a eat your own feces kinda place like L.A.... More

I hate haunted house and such but the kids (14 years old) love them. I sat outside and waited and everyone that came out was running, screaming or laughing. One lady told me that she peed her pants because it scared her so bad. Haha. The girls came out rattling on and on about all of it. They loved it.

We stopped by here this weekend looking for a scare because of Halloween being this coming weekend but didn't get one!! The effects was really good, it has great potential to be actually scary but it isn't. There was maybe four real people in the three story house. The first guy was in the same few rooms and their "jump"... More

We pass by this attraction every year, and decided to give it a go this year. My fiancée and I went around 9:45 at night and luckily there were quite a few more couples around our age that went through with us. One couple had been there before and were able to help us, but didn't ruin the experience. All... More

I've been coming to this place since i was 9 - almost 30 years. The feeling i get walking up to it from the darkened street, is always the same...giddy and excited! I think the reason this place has been in business this long is because they're doing it right. Great for kids, and still great for adults - with... More

My husband and I went for the heck of it since we were in downtown gatlinburg and it was almost Halloween. We've been in better haunted houses but this one was still fun! It was $26 for both of us, cheaper than a lot of other gatlinburg attractions. We also felt like it would be perfect for kids. Not too... More

This was our 5th time going through the Mysterious Mansion. I really don't know why I even waste my money. It was cool the first time, but probably will not go back.It was not scary at all. Kids seem to enjoy it.
