Was told it was 7 minutes and the best in Salem. Was maybe one minute and absolutely horrible, even at level ten! Do not do. Not worth your money!

Don't waste your money! It was about two minutes long. Needs more actors and music or creepy sounds at least... At $10 a head you would think they could afford better.

Bought tickets for this haunted house the person behind the counter told me it was about 6 minutes long. It was less than three with maybe 4 hunters trying to scare people all the same Hunters running through the place. A complete waste of money...More

Went here in October for the halloween season. Surprisingly unlike the other haunted houses in the area, this place did not have a very long line, which was refreshing. I knew someone, so I didn't have to pay, but if I did the price would...More

Lots of jump scares, low on the FX. Worth doing for a rainy afternoon pick-me-up, but I wouldn't line up for it! Ends abruptly and unceremoniously. Still, it was a fun and silly way to pass a few minutes!

We had a really fun time here. Scary but not the scariest. Fun times were had by all when we went here.

I don't understand how this can be rated Salem's only 5 Star Haunted House. We were through it in under five minutes and I think it's kind of pricey. Definitely not scary. Because it's located right on Essex Street, it's the perfect tourist trap. Pass...More

It is too short, not scary and a bit pricy. Expected more. It has a cool lobby. I would definitely skip it and find something better to do.

Of course it was the middle of the day in July, so it was not busy. It took less than 15 minutes to go through it, maybe even 10 minutes. We asked for the scariest option but it was one person that jumped out at...More

My husband & I are traveling to Boston/Salem in a few weeks to see the sights and specifically visit Halloween haunted houses, escape rooms & real haunted location/witch tours. I was hoping to get recommendations. If you have any advice on the best and worst in the area I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you!

Salem it isn't hard to find all the haunted houses. Witch Mansion is one, Count Orlock's, Chamber of Terror, Nightmare Factory and 13 ghosts (this one also has a real ghost tour). There are a few others but they're very easy... More
