This was the first place we came across upon our arrival into Salem. With little knowledge Salem I was keen to join this "3D time travel experience" to learn some of the history of Salem. I was very disappointed to find that the history content was very poor and bland as there was an uninformative voice over commentary when you... More

Looks interesting as a 3-D attraction but is not entertaining at all! You walk from room to room while the speaker above you talks. The rooms are super tiny and not well executed. Very outdated! They tell you that the walls and things within the rooms move...... Nothing moves (well technically one hanging box moves in a circle in one... More

Our kids LOVED this! This little tour gives you a bit more than just the witch trials. It's also a walk through in 3D. We loved it and learned a little more. The girl at the counter was very nice.

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
