“Fun stage play, a creepy dungeon and a lot of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Learn the history of the witch craze and the 1692 trials in an interesting and creepy setting. The show starts with a short play on a stage in a converted church. It proceeds to the dungeon where one of the actors gives you a history of the events, illustrated by dungeon cells filled with mannequins, damp and darkness. Definitely worth the $8 price of admission.

“There must be somewhere better in Salem”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

A short well acted play, then a trip downstairs for a look around the mannequins, bit dark.

The staff in the shop were scarier than the mannequins.

I didn't know the history of the witch trails so it was quiet informative.

There is NO restroom so after a long coach ride, it wasn't brilliant.

“Cheesy”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Good for small children ...maybe. You start out listening to a girl tell you about the witch trials. She talked too fast and too low. Didn't catch everything she said. Then you watch a short reenactment which was okay. After hat you you into the 'dungeon'. Really? What a joke. Good thing it was only $8.
