I was apprehensive about going into a haunted house. My daughter coerced me into going. I was glad she did. We went in and named our tormentor "Pinky." This helped to lighten the anxiety of some members in the group. So, we had fun chastising Pinky for trying to scare us and were laughing as much as we were screaming.... More

One of the best scare experiences I've ever had! Go after dark for the best experience. This should be on everyone's list of things to do in Gatlinburg... Unless you have a heart condition... Seriously...

Had a great time. Much better than the Ripley's Haunted Adventure. A little off the beaten path but well worth the search. A must for everyone's bucket list.

I highly recommend that you visit the Mysterious Mansion! It is a fun time! The only down fall is that I wish they would let you go with your own family. There was 4 of us in our group. They let these 3 punk men go with us and they totally ruined to scarey experience! But we have been there... More

Our kids loved this!! My 12 year old was scared to death but loved it!!!!! Cost of admission was well worth it! One of the best things to do in town that is not totally cheesy and tourist trap!
