Can I give it 6 stars? This is what a haunted attraction should be. Great actors, great design and a time to money value. We spent almost 20 minutes in this attraction as we were able to move as we wanted and through multiple paths...More

Stumbled upon this place walking along the river. Teenage daughters did it and liked it a lot. Spooky, just scary enough, and surprisingly well done. I usually done give in to touristy trap stuff,but it looked fun so gave it a shot. Takes about 15’...More

Not scary at all, especially for the inflated price! One scary guy jumps out at you. It was a waaste of time & money!

Great time with family! Enjoyed the decor, house, and all the scary things to go with it. There are many rooms to experience with this Mansion. Along the way, you’re under pressure to find your way out of the rooms while being scared to death...More

This place was all hype. There were maybe 2-3 actors/monsters that showed themselves. We were startled .. not scared. The “special effects” were Walmart Halloween grade.

My wife, brother in-law and I had a great time. If you like a good jump scare it's totally worth taking the tour. The mansion even had a restroom around back to empty your bladders from not wanting to pee your pants during the tour.

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