I was more than a bit weary about it when I noticed it was not an actual house...but when I walked in right as a group of twenty-somethings came bolting back out the entrance from the first scare I knew I was in for a treat. So, I dropped my $8 at the door with the pretty girl working the... More

My husband and I went in October when we travelled here. It was creepy looking from the outside looking into the place but when we went through only lasted about 5 or 6 min and was just your typical haunted house, Did give me a few jumps when the person would just out or come behind you and holler but...

So after asking the man out front how long it takes he said 8-10 minutes. He told us he walked thru another haunted house down the street and it was only 2 minutes. I think he was confused with his employer...we went in at a level 8 (I'm not sure how because the woman didn't tell anyone what level was... More

We visited this place the 31st of October to make our overall Salem experience. To be honest it is not worth. It is very short considering the cost of the ticket. It is not worth the time and not shary at all. My kids did not enjoy it either.

STAY AWAY!!!!!!!!!! Huge disappointment!!!! If you like a good scare then this is NOT the place to go. Yes it's good for kids because there isn't anything to really scare them except maybe towards the end. We were told it would be 10 minutes and they could make it different degrees of scariness. My husband wanted as scary as it... More

This was even better than last year. Best Haunt in town, amazing! We went to the others but this was the scariest and most realistic. They even had secret doors and chambers.

It lasted 2 minutes. The same guy tried scaring us the whole time. Compressed air scared me once. It is probably good for the age 10 and under crowd. I wanted to try a different one, but I was afraid of getting ripped off again.

When we walked in, they asked what level of scary we wanted. I told them to give us the works. Maybe this raised my expectations a bit too much because I was disappointed by it. The whole experience is about 8-10 minutes long, and in that short time, several scare techniques were repeated. I would recommend trying one of the... More
