This experience was the most scary thing I have ever done. I would advise people to take this into consideration if you have physical or mental health issues. Definitely don't bring your kids!

So my friends and I (14, 14, and 16) went in together. Once we reached the actual doors, the 16-year old quit. My friend and I navigated through the maze-like area, getting lost quite a bit and feeling we went the wrong way. Those suspicions were cleared after another action happened. It honestly wasn't that scary, it was in the dark and I was left waiting for something that never quite happened. The part where we had to get on our hands and knees was fun, however, the bridge part seems quite sketchy. Considering we were in the dark, my friend was very close to falling. It was fun, especially afterwards, but during we were usually left blindly wandering around, knocking into walls and such. I did not feel anyone grab me besides a light grasp on my ankle at one point. It did seem slightly overpriced... $16 for one person.

The main fear factor of this house is that it’s in near total darkness. You walk narrow hallways following small red lights. The floors are uneven and have ramps. It requires you to take small steps. There is a part where you have to get on your hands and knees and crawl through an opening but its a short space and doesn’t take long to get through. There are a few surprises of things jumping out or grabbing you. They will touch you. They touched my legs, my arms, and rubbed the top of my head. There is a place where you hit a dead end and the walls and ceiling inflate so that you start to feel like it’s all closing in on you. It doesn’t last long before it deflates and a wall opens allowing you to go on. Stuff drops down from the ceiling and you have to push through it as well.

If you are claustrophobic, don’t like people grabbing you, or have strong personal space issues... this will be very challenging for you.

If you are a diehard haunted house person this will probably not scare you as much as you’d like.

My husband and I visited with our teenage boys. They were pretty scared. I was scared at times. But felt I could’ve walked around a strange place with my eyes closed and it would’ve had a similar effect.

This attraction is $15 for about 10 mins. It was not scary at all. You are mainly walking through pitch dark hallways. May be scary for children but not adults.

They really made great use of a smaller space! The walk through this haunted house was much longer than expected. It is very dark the entire time and most of the "frights" are startle scares. There is a slight psychological scare in one area, but I'm not going to give it away here. I like having the option at the end to buy photos of us in mid scream. Too funny! Good little haunted house. Wouldn't recommend for the very young, but pre-teens and older should enjoy the thrill.
