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!

This place wasn't terrible but also not great either. Spent most of our tour pushing through dummies hanging from the ceiling instead of actually being spooked. Glad we did it... read more

There were some scary parts but it was mostly walking through a lot of dark halls. Need more live entertainment. We have a haunted house back home that was a quarter of the price and was more fun. Way to much money for lack of scares.

This was a fun thing to do. It was pretty scary and our kids would not have liked it ( ages 4, 8, and 8 and they did not go) but the adults had fun. You walk through single file and people jump out and stuff makes noises. if you like to be scared give it a shot. As for... More

The only part of this that I wish I had known in advance was that you needed to hold on to the person in front of you. Awkward. My person was clearly on a date, so I apologized in advance. You know that you will get out safely, but you have to wonder as you walk through if you will... More

Never expected my six year old to love it that much. She actually wanted to have a job throwing the guts. Still scares the crap out of us. Great for families to do together.

Very dark and spooky. Had to hold on to the person in front of you. Felt sorry for the leader, as this was pitch black in places and he wasn't sure where to go. Lasted quite a while as well. Fun haunted house.

basically you walk through the dark in a single file line. They have hanging bodies and stuff. Overall, it was pretty lame but had some scary moments where wind blasted at your feet and people screamed at you. Ok with kids. My 6 yr old girl went through it and she said it wasn't the scary.

I generally find the Ripley attractions overpriced...... And this was no exception. We bought the $2 "lights" for all three of us, too. They didn't give out much light, but they are pretty cool little souvenirs. The actor who started us off in the "funeral parlor" did an excellent job sounding creepy and scary. There were some jump scares, and... More

Our son was dying to go here in the combo pack, I tried to convince him not to, but he saw sign that said 6 yrs and older he said see 6 I can go. I had to cover his ears and he covered his eyes. He is a brave boy so things don't scare him much, but this did.... More

We love haunted houses and all things horror and this was so disappointing. They make you hold on to the person in front of you which is fine if you know them but awkward if you don't. The scares are weak and I just expected more out of a Ripley's attraction.
