Took advantage of this reasonably priced attraction with the family (including two teens). We loved it! I haven’t screamed/laughed at the same time like that in a long time! Admittedly, jumped more at the reaction of the ones in our group but still a great...More

It was fun to do once, not worth a second trip. Not scary. The best part was meeting new people in our group.

Always a favorite place to stop, this time my husband and son did it alone because our daughter wouldn’t go in with us. They had so much fun our son hasn’t stopped talking about it since we left.

As haunted attractions go, this one has that extra something yet the price is so reasonable! We had great fun walking through and trying to figure out how to get from one room into another. One actor in particular seemed especially agile (I won't ruin...More

Quite pricey for what the experience is. Slightly fun, but not really worth the money to us. Seemed a bit rushed through even though we were told it was a self exploring tour.

No, its a dark haunted house with loud noises and lights, not to mention scary actors in masks. I'm sure any dog would be terrified, especially a small one.

Our tour of the mansion was self-guided, which was fun. I'd say about 20-30 minutes.
