We went as a large group for our work do. Everyone enjoyed it. Well organised but a bit slow with the photos and they are verrry expensive at $50.

This haunted house is the most well done one I have ever been to. I have been to many in Los Angeles/Hollywood area and none compare. I thought it’d be impossible for me to get scared, but it worked. If you have some down time...More

Our group loved it. Host was fantastic. Thorough but fast to process and get us started. Great wandering through the pitch black, trying to find your way with plenty of jump-scare moments. Takes about 15-20mins, very much worth it.
