My 18 year old daughter and I had a great time making our way through this haunted house. The actors did a great job scaring us. If you like going through haunted houses then I highly recommend checking this one out.

I expect it was because we visited on a weeknight, but there was only one actor. The setup was good, the way you must go through the haunted house was good, however it would have been much more entertaining with more actors. If we do this again, it'll be on a weekend. If it's the same then, two times will... More

This haunted house is worth every dollar. It's even better after taking a tasting tour of the moonshine distilleries downtown. There are hidden doors, passages you have to find, and creepy things that may follow you around. I only wish they had more room to expand, their concept is fresh compared to the usual corporate bla/bla houses.

I bought a Groupon for this when we planned to visit the area. I must say that I was a bit hesitant because most haunted houses have failed to scare me at all, but this one was definitely an exception, I think because it was a little "escape room" mixed with horror and not the "turn the corner and get...

My husband and I frequent haunted houses all year long and travel quiet far to be spooked in October. I was interested in this after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor. We found an awesome Groupon deal and decided to check it out! My husband is not easily spooked, but this house was set up perfectly. Although it was pretty short,... More

I haven't been through a haunted house in a long time, and never when it wasn't Halloween. I went with my husband, my 22 year-old daughter, and her boyfriend. It's better if you are surprised, so I won't give away any details, but we were all sufficiently scared. In some of the rooms, it's hard to figure out how to... More

Ok, I'm not a fan of getting scared but the mysterious mansion was a lot of fun! At times it was funny and it's was creepy and scary. The only downside was it only lasted 10min. Get a coupon if you go. No need to pay full price for only 10min of fun.

Get a Groupon. Will save you some money. Well worth it. Fun time. Scary enough. My daughter who is 13 loved it. This was her first ever haunted house. Great location and setting.
