Definitely worth the cost and so much fun. I have worked in haunted houses for years and this was a work of art. Great actors who seemed to enjoy what they do. They did get me to jump a couple times and the animatronics were good as well.

My husband and I decided to try it out (I still sleep with everything tucked in blankets so under the bed monsters don't get me!). While waiting to get tickets I looked up and saw this thing staring at me and saying shhhhh! Nope ran out of there like I heard the ice cream truck man. So if you want... More

My husband and I always make it a point to go into at least one cheesy tourist trap each time we visit Gatlinburg, but this haunted house is far from cheesy. First off we went at night, which increased the intensity of fear. This house took us thirty minutes to get through and was decorated with perfect gruesome detail. Every... More

We are dismayed that you did not enjoy your visit with us and sincerely apologize for your inconvenience. We do wish you had informed the cashier that you could not find the secret passageway, we certainly would have let you back in and shown you the way. We do not like anyone to leave dissatisfied. I have to say we... More

I had visited the Mysterious Mansion years ago and thought it was time to visit again. After reading some of the reviews here, I wasn't expecting a whole lot. Luckily, we had a wonderful time. It was just my husband and I but a family showed up just before our tour started so they went in with us. It could... More

This place scared the mess out of us and we weren't even paying customers. Our teenagers were. We heard them screaming inside and went in after them. The ppl there scared us and I mean that truly. You want a thrill...this will do it for you.

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
