Everything on the strip is short but sweet and this is no different. The guy at the ticket booth was awesome. The best first service I received at the beach was from a zombie. If you're a hardcore haunted house person this isn't for you but if you enjoy a quick jump you'll love this. They use the small building... More

We went to the Ripley's Haunted Attraction first, and were VERY disappointed, luckily my husband noticed this place less than a block away. This haunted house is the real deal, and this is coming from a family from Ohio which holds the most haunted houses in one state during the season! I was curious how a haunted house can be... More

Some parts was okay, but the actors basically walk up and say hey. The building isn't long and compared to price isn't worth it. Ripleys was better in my opinion.

I got talked into going because my daughter's friend is a horror junkie and my daughter doesn't like horror movies. So I ended up leading this effort. It got so dark at times I was running my hand along the wall to get through. The girls thought that since I was in front that I would see all the creatures... More

We visited this on a whim while walking the boardwalk. It's a quick thrill, but worth the $10. I've been to multiple haunted houses and such, but this is the first that actually scared me to the point of screaming. Costumes and decor were on point and they timed it so we could go in by ourselves and not with... More

As someone who personally works at a haunted attraction during the season, I have high standards for haunted houses.. and man, Nightmare is SO worth it! This was the second time I went, the first time having been in 2014. My friend has never gone through a haunted house, and I suggested this to her. They have completely re-vamped and... More

They did a good job scaring me! It's very dark inside, you will need to use your hands at times to find your way around. Not for the faint of heart. Creepy haunted scenes!!

We come here from Florida once a year and come here multiple nights for different experiences. We absolutely love this place. The owner is so nice and welcoming (ironic for a haunted house) we had a friend who walked up the stairs and had the worst panic attack I've ever seen, she wanted to leave and didn't care if she...

Saying how the employees deal with customers the nightmare experience is worthwhile if you scare easily you still want to do the experience because it's one of the best ones that I've seen again the employees are very courteous and very customer oriented they make the experience worth the time

It was really good and it had a lot of good props and good actors, you have to get out in a time and they make you have to run so you won't be stuck inside for the whole day, It was a good scare and i'd go again
