More than scared, you will be frequently startled by the surprises in this place. There are some good ones. The down side is the price. It's fairly expensive for a few minutes entertainment. In addition to the admission price, you'll need to cough up $10...More

OK so I was intrigued by the reviews so I went inside and it was really cool. This attraction may be a little too much for younger children but teenagers and up will love it. I recommend this attraction especially if there's a rainy day.

pitch dark, you have to follow little red lights on the wall in order to manuever your way around. Lots of jump scares, we had fun! Costs about $15 a ticket

I did this in my own and thought it wouldn't be that scary. But its the darkness and the not knowing, that really gets you. I tried to get through it as fast as possible, but was still given a good fright a fair few...More
