So the ghost boat tour was not advertised involving walking. I had sprained my ankle while in the Dells and my fiance and I decided a boat tour would be something fun but not hard on my ankle. Boy were we wrong. We got the...More

This was our second year, so I guess we liked it enough to go back. The boat ride is great, something about cruising through the river in the dark is pretty spooky. The "sets" were well done, decorations looking all too real in some areas....More

The wait to load the boat was very disorganized. Ride on the river was pretty. Walk was ok. No place to sit during long wait to be allowed back down the trail. Not even a rail to lean on. 2nd time here. First was several...More

Be sure to get here early so you can get to sit on the upper deck of the boat. You board the boat and go for a 30 minute ride where you dock and the haunted house starts. It's a long walk and the haunted...More

It was great for my 6 year old brother and my 19 year old sister. Great for families. The one thing I was disappointed with is that it didn't really have a plot, it was just scares. I would recommend for children under 5.

I am guessing roughly about 2 miles total (there and back). You walk into a cavern that comes to an end. You then walk back the same route you came from.
