“A fun place to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

Ghost lab is located on a side street and is a mini haunted house / ghost lab. Pure fun and a break from all the history. The mad doctor who runs the lab takes you through a maze and haunted forest. He created all the props and storyline. All are well done and will catch you off guard. He can gear the lab for adult or family with the touch of his computer program. Loved it!!

“Fun break from history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

This is a fun way to break up a trip to Gettysburg. With all of the the history there is to absorb on a typical trip to the town, this was a fantastic idea to offer visitors - especially if you're traveling with family or friends that may need a break. Very impressive gift shop and friendly staff, recommended highly for any that are interested in the "supernatural" aspects of Gettysburg.

“Hokey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2014

Gettysburg is one of the most historic cities in America and we spent half our time standing in an asphalt parking lot and the other half in his gift store. Don't waste your time or money.

The Gettysburg ghost lab is not a parking lot tour. I think you were on a ghost tour. The ghost lab cost is $7.00 for adults and is a lot of fun. It is a 20 minute tour in our build at 241 Steinwehr Ave.

“Good, cheesy fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

My teen aged daughters were a bit bored by most of the tourist attractions in Gettysburg but this they really enjoyed. It was the most fun we had on our visit to the area. It was inexpensive and the staff was very friendly. It's not for stuffy historians but if you are looking for something fun, check out this place.

“lots of fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This is fun, especially for the kids. We took the "less scary" version but our grandson (age 9) was sufficiently frightened. Staff was very friendly and the gift shop was well stocked. We did not visit the diorama, but there are several smaller versions around the gift shop, which were well done and told the story.
