We had a great time and it seems like the employees do too. Scary and creepy. Probably not suitable for small kids.

We liked this place. It was a typical haunted house but the building is really creepy. You go in groups and whoever is at the beginning of the group has to figure out which door to go through. It was fun and would be neat...More

The setup of the mansion was GREAT ! But it felt like there was only one "monster" staff member that was running around & just jumping out at you at different intervals. They could do so much more with better sound effects & more staff...More

We have been coming to this attraction for about 15 years. It never disappoints. This is a must see if you are visiting Gatlinburg or Pigeon Fordge.

It's one of the best things to do if you are visiting Smoky Mountains. It's near by the main street. Don't miss it.

Ok I must say, this was much scarier than I expected. We live close to several great haunted houses so I thought it might be hokey. We took 3 teens (the 4th chickened out). This is what made it great...First, they only let one group...More

By far.....the best haunted house I been through in years. We got to go just the 2 of us as a group. It was Amazing. You had to find your own way through and out of rooms. The scenes in each room were very creative...More

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!!!

It is a house you walk through with scary scenery and objects on walls and hanging from ceiling. People are hiding in each room that scream at you if you spend to much time looking around and direct you to the next room... More

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!
