Thank you for visiting! A tour guide would be fun, but we find many guests like to go at their own pace. We appreciate your review and hope you enjoyed your time in The Dells.

We really enjoyed going here. We went as a kid and then again this year and it was a good time. My kids had never been and they really liked it.

This was a complete waste of time and money for our family. Our 6 year old wasn't into any of it at all. It was very creepy and dark. It had an eery, haunted house feel to it. I was waiting for something to jump...More

Fun way to spent an hour. Easy to walk through and plenty of oddities to catch your eye. We had a fun time finding the "hidden" floor and "secret" exhibits. If we come across another one on vacation we'll have to stop in.
