Ripley's Haunted Adventure takes haunted houses to the next level. Live...

Ripley's Haunted Adventure takes haunted houses to the next level. Live actors lurk behind every corner of this creepy renovated mansion, just waiting to "welcome" you to their home. That high pitched scream you hear...yea that's you. But remember, you must be at least 6 years old to enter, if you dare!

We got to Ripleys Haunted Adventure every year when we visit Gatlinburg. As a matter of fact we go multiple times while we are there, sometimes just to watch the other people's reactions. This is a great place, my teens love it. Next year we are taking the littles (7, 8)

By haunted house standards, it was average. We laughed more than anything else. Our teenager laughed the most. It wasn't that scary so even young kids could partake in the visit. We had fun, but wouldn't be back for a second go around.

My husband and I tried this and we had a great time. We love haunted attractions and this is one of my new favorites. Lots of work went into this. The makeup and effects were great. All the employees were really cool. Neil is awesome. He was really messing with my husband and it was hilarious. He also gave us... More

The haunted house was the worst part of our trip so far. Other than the worker at the beginning there was only one person that we remember working in the whole house. The sounds were more scary than the people. The guy doesn't even chase you to the elevator. It could be so much better!

We went as a family with two kids (9 and 13). I really am not a haunted house person as they stress me out. I read this one was OK so we went on a weekend night. We went in with a group of 7 other people and it was surprisingly entertaining. Kids liked it and we all screamed, laughed... More

Not that scary if you are really looking for something to get your heart jumping out of your chest. However if with mid aged kids they might get a kick out of it.

Worst haunted house I ever been through. Richard, was not very friendly or accommodating. He also denied me my Military Discount for my family members. Although I did receive them for the other attractions. I would not recommend this for something to do!

It wasn't even that much to get in, but it still wasn't worth the money. The staff was nice and very professional. However, the first few rooms you go in didn't even have actual people working them. There were only props. Maybe they were short staffed, but I just expected more from a Ripley's Haunted House.

I didn't have high expectations and you don't get scared easily then you won't be too impressed. However for the typical person this was actually fairly scary. There are a number of jump scares
