The Haunted house was fun! Some of the actors/extras were scaring the pants off you randomly, the images/props were cool because they were 3-D. It didn't take too long to go thru, but how long do you want it anyway? The tour guide Colleen did an excellent job on the walk with a few great tales and history of salem... More

I liked it good job with the 3-d mostly a history experience. At night monsters jump out at you didn't get the chance to return at night to experience that.

If you don't have a budget on your trip to Salem it's worth a go i suppose. I think it would have been a better experience haunted, as the props and 3d are quite creepy, but we went during a normal day. I think i expected more from the displays. Their was only one or two rooms that i found... More

I'm not so sure about the history tour because we didn't receive one. We basically had 3-D glasses and walked through a 3-D house from top to bottom. I guess we did this around 8 o'clock at night so maybe it's different in the daytime. Regardless of the history tour that I didn't receive I don't care I think they... More

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 Very outdated!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
