I went to this attraction after reading a positive review in a local newspaper. It definitely isn’t worth $9.00 a person and only takes approximately 6 minutes to walk through. Most of the scares come from props rather than real actors.

We visited this place the 31st of October to make our overall Salem experience. To be honest it is not worth. It is very short considering the cost of the ticket. It is not worth the time and not shary at all. My kids did...More
