This place is creepy and only gets more scary with every step you take. It has different elements like darkness and small spaces to get a fright out of everybody. One person in our party was scared, we used her name and told her not to be scared. Throughout the rest of the house voices were whispering her name and... More

My fiancé and I found this attraction to be very lacking. It was not very intimidating and staff would allow to many people through at the same time. This lead to all the "scary" parts to be revealed prior to us being anywhere near them. Perhaps geared toward the younger folks, as they may fine it a little more nightmarish.

Saw this advertised as a tourist attraction at Niagara Falls and with the statistics if people chickening out of the tour we just had to do it!! No queues on the day we visited and even just walking in I was apprehensive but it wasn't getting the better of me. You are told to wait for the green light to... More

My nephew and I both loved this place! Very scary for sure, very dark and have to walk carefully! But it was worth it and I can't believe people are leaving bad reviews but it's like anything else, always has to have some bad reviews! We went to 3 haunted house and this one was the best in terms of... More

We don't normally go for this sort of thing (bit gimmicky) but I was recommended it by a friend (who I'd say also wouldn't go for this sort of thing!). We weren't disappointed. In fact I thoroughly enjoyed it. Being subjected to near total darkness and have... More

It wasn't scary as we thought at all. We didn't think it was worth the price at all. Won't be going back to it again. My kids are teenagers and they both weren't scared at all and we're not happy with it.

Since we went in their slow season, they don't employ as many staff to scare you throughout the house. This is what the man at the front desk even said. We just walked following the light and a couple things jumped out. I expected more. It may be better in the summer but still no excuse.

Very interesting haunted house. Relied more on your senses, which is unique. I was actually scared for once in a haunted house. Loved looking at photo reactions of people at the end.

Good, scream filled experience. Probably only lasts about 10-15 minutes when you are walking through - but great for a quick adrenaline rush!
