This was one of the best haunted houses I've ever been in! If you're looking for an immersive haunted house that isn't too extreme, this is for you! My group consisted of 2 adults and a 13 year old. All of us loved it there!...More

We were expecting a cheesy haunted house with animatronics around ever corner. Boy were we surprised! It is full of secret passages and scare actors in unexpected hiding areas. It is off the main strip so it was easy to get to and was not...More

Best haunted house we've ever visited! We were lured to the Mysterious Mansion by hearing the dark and ominous music right after parking nearby. I don't scare very easily but the scare actors got me numerous times as we ventured through the creepy corridors of...More

Do you record everyone and sell a cd? We went in one once and they did that. I still have to cd. We didn't stay in it long but we still get a huge laugh out of it. My boys are older now and I would love to go through one that records us and watch it for many years.

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!!!
Socthis isn't considered a potentially serious haunted house. It sounds like a show type experience. Is that correct?

My mother is 87. Would this be too scary for her? Also, she is unable to go up and down stairs due to knee problems. Do you have an elevator she could use?

Unfortunately its not the place for her. It's ALOT of using stairs and sometimes pitch dark. However, there is a nice area in the foyer where she could sit and wait as well as benches right outside. Hope this helps you!
