Not impressed with this attraction. It wasn't the worst I have been to, but it was by no means impressive. There was maybe one live actor. Other than that, it was decorated with cheesy Halloween store props. One tip if you do go....step out onto the balcony on the third floor. That might be the one true scare you actually... More

Nicely organized, Went with my wife, 15 year old daughter and her friend. They were so scared, screaming and hanging all over me. I struggled to lead us through the house and the spooky guy that was scaring the girls help guide us very inconspicuously. At one point he came from above and that's when he scared me enough to...

Good scares, enjoyed secret passages and being scared by masked employees popping up out of nowhere. My wife and step daughter screamed non-stop! Only drawback was the size of the group that went in. 10 in a group did not allow for the best scary experience. Fewer people in a group and it would have been perfect. The cashier honored... More

Visited the Mysterious Mansion on a Monday afternoon. For two adults it was $22 to go through the mansion (reasonable). My girlfriend and I were the only visitors at the attraction during that time. The dark hallways and hidden passages are unique and make for a fun experience. My girlfriend was definitely frightened by the dressed up workers and the... More

Went to Gatlinburg for family ski trip at Ober Gatlinburg. Had extra day to visit Gatlinburg. Read reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. Went with my 12 year old son who likes haunted houses. We were blown away - it was awesome! It's a self guided tour through a 3 story mansion. Very dark, just the... More

It was a fun, family experience! Very good value for the money. Scary but not too! Easy to walk through.

We went during the "slow season" of Gatlinburg and expected the haunted house to be below average. Well we were shocked. It was just four of us in the haunted house. We waited for 15 minutes before we were instructed to continue into the house. It was well worth the wait. After going to the Ripley's Haunted Mansion or whatever,... More

The staff is very friendly and helful while waiting in line to go through. In my opinion Mysterious Mansion is much better than Ripley's. This one actually scared me and the setting is more creepy. I highly recommend this attraction.
