This haunted mansion was SO creepy. It's takes a minute to figure out which way to turn, but any way is wrong. They're scaring you all over the place. Such fun.

It is scary and fun to figure out if you keep your eyes open. If you're like me and hate being scared then I wouldn't recommend this place.

Creepy. Loved the actor, our daughter started calling him Reggie, and he answered to it by the end of the tour. Pitch black at times, can't even see your hand in front if your face. It will definitely get your heart rate up.

If you like haunted houses with things scaring you and not just gore, this is for you. They don't run you through like some others in town but keep a stop and go walking pace. Great for the kids if they are not too sensitive to being scared and the dark. Very reasonable price I thought.

Went in a group with family, children ages 5, 8, 10, 11, and 13 plus adults. The kids were terrified and begging to leave through emergency exits. Much scarier than Ripleys (which was also good).

Been in this before, it was so good the first time I came crawling out, lol. This time wasn't as good, but still a great time. My family went in & there were a few of us & it was awesome watching my wife, daughter, son, nieces get scared. The most funny part for me was to see my brother... More

This really surprised us. It was so neat. Our 14 year old and 8 year old both enjoyed the mystery of getting around the many rooms. Just Go and use Groupon.
