Lives up to it's name. Very spooky at night. I loved it! The woods and old covered bridge are scary after you come out of the cemetery tour and the pumpkin sculptures are amazing for Halloween. A must see trip!

We went over to do the Ghost Lab experience, but even though the website still appears functional, we were told it is no longer in operation. The person working did say there was a similar more historical exhibit in its place, but we had teens and Tweens who wanted to do something different.

This was much different than expected and not all that scary. Particularly because there were a group of teens hanging out with the workers and we felt like we had ruined their night. Not a lot of effort on behalf of the staff to give experience a little credibility for pur tweens. I wouldn't recommend it at all.

My husband and I went in the Ghost Lab and I am a big chicken. The man out front said there were 2 different experiences, one for kids and one for adults. I asked for the kid one. We went through and it was scary but I survived. When we came out i said I was glad I picked the... More

In between chasing boys and doing what else teen girls do,my daughters love anything scary. Going in haunted house helped break up the day for them. My oldest let out a scream you could hear in the lobby. Not the best idea taking my lil ones in. I had to pick them both up to get them to the end.... More

This is such a fun tour for families. It is must do when in Gettysburg. The tour moves through rooms, great effects. Kids of all ages will like it.

Ok, so this place is a small operation for a haunted house attraction, but it's very entertaining. I'm a haunted house fanatic, so it takes a lot to scare me, but the moment the lights go out and the alarms go off-about halfway through- my sister (28years old) was clinging to me like a wet cat. The experience itself, is... More

The ghost lab was fun, not scary. If you are looking for a real ghost adventure and to get scared, the ghost lab is not the place to be. It is however a fun walk thru exhibit.

Since we received free tickets to this with our horseback ride (Artillery Ridge), had some time on our hands, and were already there since we visited the diorama, we decided to try it out. It was ridiculously cheesy. Honestly, if they did away with the last part, where you go through a "haunted forest" that is like something the neighbors... More
