Convinced my partner this was a great idea- and it was! Staff we very in character and it made the experience that much better. You get to select what scares you the most. Ed Sheeran chickened out! Probably not for children. Quite scary as they...More

The only thing was scary there is falling and hitting the wall! As you are walking in a very dark place while following small hardly seen red spots. I think it is money wasting experience. The people working there were nice to be fair.More

The experience begins as you walk through the door and is excellent until the end! Really fits the theme and definitely lives up to the name of being NZ's scariest haunted house!
