The basic premise of this enterprise is a vampire-themed show and dinner. About the only good thing I can say is the food was edible. Otherwise expect a hugely commercial experience (heavy marketing of photos, drinks and merchandise), along with terrible singing at brain-rattling volume. Avoid at all costs!

I'd only heard great things about Draculas, but it was so terrible that our party of three walked out partway through the show. I've never walked out of anything before. It was crude and racist and about twenty other kinds of offensive and not even a little funny. There was hassling, touching, and insulting the audience on a level we found completely inappropriate-- referring to some of the ladies in the B seating as sluts, grabbing a woman's ponytail, making jokes about male audience members being gay and/or women because of their haircuts. I was terrified they were going to start in on our table too and relieved they didn't

The staff however were absolutely lovely, the band was great, and the acrobatics were very fun to watch. The food was mediocre, the ghost train ride boring. Everything else, the stand-up and much of the show itself, was sickening.

Save your money for better food and less condescending and boring entertainment.

This overall experience of Dracula's is great. It's a bit of theater and cabaret and dance and wild in-your-face horror characters. If you have a fun nature this is an excellent place. The pews on the balcony sections are a bit tight so you will need to stretch your legs occasionally and I did find that the waiting for the show to begin was a bit lengthy but once it started it was loads of fun.

nothing good there, another of these third grade so call attractions with boring jokes, music from the ark and resident actors from the last 15 years, even the ghost train is coming from the wreckers and the price yeah, you are offering the owners a new lamborgini
