It was only okay.. my kids had fun with the 3D glasses. But it was a bit old and could use some renovations. Especially for the $$ spent for a family of four, not really worth it.

We waited an hour in line to sign up for a 30min tour, which they had scheduled to run every 15 minutes. The tour was actually awful. Why would anyone offer a "modern ghost" tour in a place with as much history as salem? We were not even told of any actually hauntings, just accounts of people feeling "weird" in... More

I must admit, I was slightly dubious of what I thought would be another weak try for tourist dollars, and I was wrong. Went to a couple things this group has done and they do a really nice job. This is now where we send people visiting town when they want something with a bit more theater tan the other... More

I did this tour with a friend on a trip to Boston/Salem in October. LOVED this tour! I have done several ghost tours throughout the U.S. and this is one of my favorites that I have ever done. Our tour guide was named Victoria and she was great! She was extremely informative and not only pointed out great things about... More

We arrived at the opening time. They were not ready until 20 minutes after they opened. We paid $10 for adults and $7 for kids. They recommend ages 6+. After paying, we were given 3D glasses and just kind of pushed along into a neon nightmare. There was no real introduction or any storyline. There are two or three people... More

We took our two kids (ages 10 and 13) on the night tour on Oct. 4 for my daughter's birthday. I think it was a decent tour for what you paid ($13 adults/$10 kids). Our tour guide was very nice knowledgeable and seemed to really enjoy Salem. My only complaint was that she would talk a lot while walking along... More

Do not bother. It is a walk-through maze of mannequins splashed with paint under UV light. This "time machine" achieves the amazing feat of making something that is actually 3 dimensional look like a really bad attempt at an early 3D movie.

This little attraction was not something we planned on doing but so glad we did. very short, perhaps 15-20 minutes, but visually very well done, fun, different, and educational. a little expensive in my opinion, but lovely.

We went here in October when they had the haunted house set up. It was okay, although it's not for people who are really looking for a thrill. The museum is more interesting if you are looking to learn about the trials and witches in Salem. If you want something fun and entertaining, then this place is fine.

The tour was historical in nature and the young lady who walked to fast for all the tour informed us of haunted happenings in town. It's not scary if that's what your looking for. There a huge amount of tours in salem, we passed others that seemed more involved and theatrical. 13 Ghosts have a cool 3D haunted house, but... More
