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!

It's fun and a great place to get a fun scare. The lift operator was running around on the sidewalk scaring people as they walked by - really funny if a little bit over the top. The attraction itself is a fun but short experience. Mostly automated, we estimated there might have been 4-5 people actually working the entire thing.... More

When we asked if it was actually a little scary or if it's more for little kids we were told that it wasn't recommended for kids, that it was very scary. It wasn't horrible but not what the lady made it out to be would of been better if there was more people jumping out through it. Maybe had two... More

We got a combo package of Ripley's Haunted and their 5D Movie Motion Ride, with the package it came to about ten bucks per person for the haunted house. Being that it was ten bucks and a tourist attraction I honestly expected it to be kind of lame; but I really enjoyed it. I wouldn't call it scary for an... More

It was ok for a group with teenagers, but more suited to a younger crowd. Not enough interaction with the audience. A similar haunted just a few blocks away was way better in the interaction score.

Don't waste your money going through this one right now, I'm sure it's better during October, but I'm an easy scare and nothing scares me, the staff was friendly and tried to carry the fear effect through but it was really disappointing, we had a group of 5 and it was an expensive disappointment

Not the largest haunted house on the planet.... but plenty of stuff you won't expect. Employees are fantastic and simply make the adventure more real than some care for. Worth the wait and price of admission. Of course the best deal is the multi-attraction pass from Ripley's and if your Military... you'll save a bundle! Another must-see while walking through...

I almost jumped half out of my skin on this one. The people passing by would just stop and stare. Kids didnt know what to think about this.

My wife and I came across the haunted house whilst walking down the street. From the start to finish it was superb. The lady at the tickets stall was dressed down to set the tone for what was to come. The journey through the house was better than expected. After the second room you just wanted to leave due to...

Heard this was the better of the two haunted houses in town. Really expected more than a couple of guys jumping out and the rest of it being mechanical. Pretty disappointed.

My wife and I went on Halloween night (thinking everyone would be in the spirit and it would be a fun experience) and we could not have been more disappointed. They broke us up in groups of 13 which was entirely too many people for a group, the props were cheesy and the cast seemed eager to shove us out... More
