This place was OK at best. We went to a little local haunted house and the kids though it was better than the beast. Probably would not go to it again

This haunted house wasn't scary at all, boring. Not worth the money. Also some of the people working it were very rude, including the guy working the 2-story jump. I don't recommend it!

Def worth a visit. The attraction lasts about 30-45 min going through mazes and well constructed scary themed rooms. Out of the Three big haunted houses in KC this one is absolutely the best. I recommend spending the extra money to get the VIP pass...More

The Beast was very scary. We were lost for 30 min. plus or minus a few. The dramatic sets were so real and the fog left me with chills. Lines are long in October. Go on a weekday even with VIP tickets.

We took 6 teenage girls last October to The Beast and they loved it. The best part for the parents was watching them. One of our girls could hardly bear to go in but this year is ready to go again (but already nervous!) It's...More

I went last year and it was incredibly fun. This year they couldn't handle the crowds. We got there at 7:30 and by 1am we had only gone through two. Initially we asked an employee where to go to buy the triple combo pack and...More

This is a good haunted house but is very crowded. This isn't the fault of the haunted house. I recommend getting tickets in advance and also throwing the vip option on top of that. We got in very quickly but were still crowded in some...More
