We have been coming to this attraction for about 15 years. It never disappoints. This is a must see if you are visiting Gatlinburg or Pigeon Fordge.

It's one of the best things to do if you are visiting Smoky Mountains. It's near by the main street. Don't miss it.

Ok I must say, this was much scarier than I expected. We live close to several great haunted houses so I thought it might be hokey. We took 3 teens (the 4th chickened out). This is what made it great...First, they only let one group in at a time so you can't hear what's going on ahead of you. That... More

By far.....the best haunted house I been through in years. We got to go just the 2 of us as a group. It was Amazing. You had to find your own way through and out of rooms. The scenes in each room were very creative and graphic. For what seemed to be only 2 or 3 live boogeyman ......They scared... More

This attraction is not for the faint of heart. I took a chance and brought my family of four which included my 10 year old daughter and 12 year old son. My son and husband only made it 3/4 of the way through before they bailed out. It was very loud and may have been better if the actors just... More

It's located on the other side of the creek. It is something to go into and you have to guess which way to go in the first room. In some places it is extremely dark and you have to listen to instructions on how to find your way out. At the end there is a place where you step onto... More

This house was very entertaining and scary. Many people jump out at you when you least expect it, giving you some big jump scares. The haunted house was really fun. Took about 15 - 20 minutes to walk through. We are a family of four and used a Groupon offer they had while we were on vacation. Definitely worth the... More

Youngest that went in was 8. It scared the cap out of her. Everyone in the group of 5 said it was good. Worth the visit.
