After the experience I understood why they said, “if you chose to leave then there is no refund”. I had to hold a strangers hand & help her get through it, even though I was a bit frightened myself. It was well worth the price...More

I have to say that it was a big disappointment for me and my sister. This is more for 12 year olds. Not scary, only 2 actors, props seriously need update.More

Haunted House was fun for adults & teens. We had one child who freaked out, & we asked the spooks to lay off her & they didn’t so she exited early (at least they had early exits). Other than that it was very good.

We were the last group through and really enjoyed the experience. It was much better than the Ripleys haunted attraction. They had some good scares and the rooms and effects were well done. I liked that you had to find your way through in certain...More

Our tour of the mansion was self-guided, which was fun. I'd say about 20-30 minutes.

I didn't record us myself and I didn't see an option that offered that when we bought the tickets. I would definitely have bought a recording of that because it would have been hilarious!!!
