This was a great adventure! It wasn't a long drawn out tour. We took an 11 and 12 yr old boys and they really enjoyed it. We only did the pirate tour since half of us don't like haunted houses.

We toured the Haunted House. They only take small groups, so it was personalized. It is a short tour, but worth the wait. We had about a 15 minute wait.More
