Very old house. Spooky and creepy with certain creatures lurking about. Watch out. I seem to like Ripley's Haunted Adventure a little better even though it did cost a little more. All in all you will have fun.

Secret passages trap doors. We went with our family for a wedding and that was probably the most exciting thing we done. P.s. Don't ever stay at the Gatlinburg Inn

Great food! Long lines, so be prepared to wait, but certainly worth it! Kids from 15 to 7 all found something they liked!

This haunt is unlike any other I have been to. I have participated in 100’s of Haunted houses and I was excited to visit this one. A three story Victorian mansion with all the rooms! There is no guide so you are on your own!...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!!!
