Bought a Groupon deal to see Miles Thorn Magic Show at Times Scare Theater. At first, the place looked a little sketchy to me but for what you pay for you can't expect much. The actual show was entertaining though.

We were in New York around Halloween, and a guy in the street gave us a coupon of discounted tickets. I hate haunted houses, but my husband wanted to go. It was fun scary and to the point I nearly wet my pants. Definitely try it. Ull b telling ur friends years afterwards

I went to New York City, and randomly found this place with my friends. Unfortunately they were offering a discount because they're closing on 6th of December 2015. I'm sad to see it go, it was a nice time. The actors were wonderful and funny though quite sad since the place is closing.

I hate anything scary and I'm the worst person to watch horror movies but this was just something I wanted to do. 27$ I'm sorry but totally worth it. I felt that for 15 mins I had no control of life and it was crazy scary. We went there really late so just me and my friend was there. Probably... More

I've wanted to go into this Haunted House since I learned of it several years ago. It's suitably creepy from the side-walk with dastardly hawkers attempting to draw you in, especially with Halloween a week away! Unfortunately, I got a feeling of deja vu as I entered its darkened foyer... For $35USD per adult (twice as much for the VIP... More

We decided to go on a whim as we walked up 8th avenue after a couple of beers. I have given three stars as it wasn't my cup of tea but my girlfriend loved it and I had a lot of fun watching her running about terrified👹 The end of the show leads into the bar. We didn't hang about... More

So I have worked in haunted houses before and I overall like the experience but I however didn't like paying the $27 to go through and be done in 10-15 minutes if I pay that much it better last at least 45mins- 1hr long back home we pay $25 and it lasts about 45mins... What to take away from this... More

The neon lights, videos, and the atmosphere was one of my best experiences this year!! We were there at night but the lights made it seem like day. I'll never forget it! I'm definitely going again. Don't think it was such a thrill for the kids as it was a little chilly.
