My husband and I were terrified walking through this little treasure. He even made me lead the way and get the first wave of scares. Excellent sound effects and visual effects. I would like to go back, now that we know where the secret passages are :)

This is a very nice haunt. It has scares from beginning to end. The facade is very creepy. The only downfall is that some parts seemed rushed and crammed, not so well thought out. Also, the haunted headman outside on the balcony is broken and I was afraid it would fall on me. Overall, it was a great haunt and the best one in town.

I visited the Mysterious Mansion in Gatlinburg on Wednesday, November 27, 2013. I have noticed this place for many years and finally got an opportunity to go in it. I'm very glad that I did. I never knew from one moment to the next what was going to happen. I enjoy old buildings. This one had some interesting features to it. I thought the mansion and the scares were well done. It sure did catch me off guard at times. I would recommend this place to others. It is an enjoyable alternative to the other attractions in Gatlinburg.

We had a great time doing this we walked by it a couple of times and thought we would try. I have never seen my wife so scared. We laughed so much afterwards. I would recommedn it and it is cheaper than most other attractions.

We went through the mansion this year for the first time. We travel to Gatlinburg every year and always talk about how neat it looks so this time we decided to go in. We were expecting a cheezy haunted house. We were very pleasantly surprised by the experience. When you have to find your way out of some of the rooms with the anticipation of the creepers jumping out at you you it really adds to the suspense. It is a cool place to check out and very inexpensive. We had two adults and two 12 yr old boys. We were put in a group with four other adults. We all really enjoyed it. Mr Clown was outside to greet us when we came out too and was gracious enough for a picture with the family. Go at night!! We will be back...
