Description:

This is a very fun Haunted House. It's all about laughing and screaming....

This is a very fun Haunted House. It's all about laughing and screaming. If you don't know how to laugh and scream and have fun, you will not like this attraction...... Don't waste your time or money. It is definitely very "old school". The idea for the Haunted House was based on Indian Legends from the past. Artist friend Dale Kuipers hand crafted and artistically created the finer displays. Everything was made from scratch........all the art work.....all the mechanics.....everything.. I realize that there are several displays that should be totally pitched, but I have a hard time convincing the owner to do that. He is very very "old school" I know it needs to be updated.

Back in the 1890's this location housed a Rollar Rink, which is hard to imagine. Then it was a family theatre........then a movie theatre.........then in the early 1970's Frank Nephew and Robert Benser purchased the building. In 1974 they leased the building to Welden Blum and Joe Feuquay. Welden Blum is still today the owner of The Haunted Theatre. Dale Kuipers was the artistic talent........Welden was the Engineer..........Joe was the Businessman. Others involved with their creative talents were Rick Beeman and Sheldon Bennet.

This location, many many moons ago must have been part of Indian History, perhaps even a

burial ground.

Haunted House - fun for me and the hubby

I was NOT expecting this what so ever. It was an old school haunted house- and it was fun. May not be suitable for younger children. but a good laugh for me and the hubby.

A bunch of us went to Mackinac Island for the day. We stopped by the Haunted Theatre and we had a blast!!! We were all screaming the whole way through. When we came around the corner someone growled in my ear. I screamed and peed my pants cause I was laughing so hard. A classic.

This is a fun and scary little haunted house! The owner was amazing, funny, friendly and genuine. It's a quick maze through the house, but very creepy! I jumped and screamed many times! It's definitely worth the $7 and you'll leave with a scared smile on your face!

Please don't waste your money on this poor excuse of a haunted house. It is not a theater, just a very dark maze, with cheap outdated props. Not to mention a disinterested collage kid more interested in looking at her phone than welcoming you to their exhibit. They have one kid that yells at you 3 times during the short... More

It was a bit spooky but not sure it was worth $7 a person. Probably wouldn't go again. My daughter seemed to like it. Typical haunted house but no one grabbing or chasing you which was nice.

I have visited this Haunted House since I was young, so I had to bring my 9 year old. It is neat, but too scary. We laughed a lot going through it. Could be updated a tad, but otherwise we enjoyed it.

If you're not in the mood for a short, touristy-type haunted house, then this is not for you. But honestly - it does the job a haunted house should do and the price is reasonable for a 10 minute walk through the fun house. Yes, some (ok, several) of the wax sculptures are cheesy, but it's meant to be fun.... More

I walked through the Haunted Theatre in search of two young teens who disappeared heading in that direction. I did not find the teens but the experience was interesting. It is a quick visit kind of attraction and when my teens did eventually go through it themselves they liked it well enough.
