I have visited this Haunted House since I was young, so I had to bring my 9 year old. It is neat, but too scary. We laughed a lot going through it. Could be updated a tad, but otherwise we enjoyed it.

A must do when on the island. Cheesy, corny, scary fun. Great for all ages. And it is actually haunted.

If you're not in the mood for a short, touristy-type haunted house, then this is not for you. But honestly - it does the job a haunted house should do and the price is reasonable for a 10 minute walk through the fun house. Yes, some (ok, several) of the wax sculptures are cheesy, but it's meant to be fun.... More

I walked through the Haunted Theatre in search of two young teens who disappeared heading in that direction. I did not find the teens but the experience was interesting. It is a quick visit kind of attraction and when my teens did eventually go through it themselves they liked it well enough.

It's $7 to take a walk down memory lane and see what "haunted attractions" must have looked like in the 70s. Most of the walk is looking at odd Halloween type scenes behind glass, some of which turn and move, others that are just odd. There seems to be a way a person can walk around the walls with you,...

I went in there with my son who always dares himself to go into these scary attractions. We screamed at like 2 points, the rest we were laughing. Most of the attraction involves looking at some cheap halloween type scenes behind glass. One part went dark and the floor was doing something funny. We screamed. And then the end at... More

As stated above, this attraction was a bit pricey for the time it took to visit ($7 per person, and the family was in it for about 10 minutes or less). I'm not sure we'd choose to do this again.

This is a Theatre with history and the locals may tell you it's haunted! It's just a quick haunted house, but go on the Haunts of Mackinac Tour to hear the history behind the building.
