At $13 now, not a great value. We took teenagers. We're sent in with another group of 3. Took about 30 minutes to go through. Some scare factors and shock. Typical hunted house.

Our small kids insisted on visiting this house. Two cried and two hid in their jackets. It was a great haunted house for the adults! We did make it all the way through.

Old school scary fun.... It might seem a little hokey a first but it's not. Interior and exterior used to be a actual haunted house. Actors work hard at making it fun for guests. Kids will get scared. Go as groups. Very accommodating and very neat experience. Go during Halloween even better. The actor that dresses up and jumps down... More

My boyfriend and I went and it was a great experience. I was scared and he wasn't. Luckily we had others and I was sandwiched in-between him and a nice lady. Overall great fun.

We went to the Mysterious Mansion with a group of friends. Friendly staff except for the creepy clown. He didn't talk, just screamed. If you like to be scared or startled, then you'll love this place. You start out in a creepy parlor then you enter a secret passageway that takes you throughout the mansion. Great atmosphere and sudden scares.... More

My husband and I took our 3 children (10,8, and 7) to the Mysterious Mansion. I thought that it might be a little cheesy but was I ever wrong. This was the best haunted house experience that I've ever had. You have to find how to escape each room in the house and it's 3 levels. My kids did get... More

Hidden gem out of all tourist traps on the strip. Look for discounts on Groupon. Very scary. Actors were crazy and acrobatic popping and jumping around from everywhere. I would highly recommend.
