Alway a very good scare. It's so crowded that you tend to run into the group before you missing some of the surprises but overall a lot of fun. I would advise upgrading tickets... read more

My friends, girlfriend, sister, exchange student and I drove from Youngstown Ohio. The shuttle was nice & free. When we got there we had a short wait and walked right in. The detail and time put in to the Scarehouse is off the charts. Every little thing in the Scarehouse was amazing. From creepy old dolls to jaw bones of... More

We went to Pittsburgh for a short trip and decided to check out The Scarehouse. We didn't purchase our tickets in advance so we had to wait in line. We were glad that we did in this case because some of the characters came out and entertained us. There was a bunny that was hilarious and a guy dressed up... More

This is the third year in a row that I've visited Scarehous. Each year, they change it up and make it better than the last year. This year was no exception! I always leave the haunt sweating and hoarse from screaming. I really don't understand some of the reviews. There are no black walls. There are lots of actors throughout... More

We took some friends who had never been through a haunted house to the Scarehouse. The advance ticket purchase worked out very well. We managed to get lined up so the new person was at the front of our line. The actors really got to him. The new mazes (i.e., mirrors, blankets) were great.

I was so excited to come to the scare house. I heard that it was so "scary" and one of the best in the country. I think this is the least scariest haunted house I've been too! And believe me I don't do well at haunted houses! I don't think I jumped once. Their were not many actors at all... More

The props were awesome. We didn't find it to be very scary and thought that the haunted houses we've been to in Ohio were better.

Alway a very good scare. It's so crowded that you tend to run into the group before you missing some of the surprises but overall a lot of fun. I would advise upgrading tickets to the VIP or RIP ticket to avoid the long wait to get in. You must park and shuttle in since there is no where nearby... More

We've been coming here for years and these guys really do set the bar for the season. The work with Legendary Pictures paid off, big time as the last couple of years were better than ever. While waiting in line, the characters outside that interact with you are fun and entertaining. The sets are VERY well done, although this year... More

We came here tonight and had a blast. Did the RIP tickets to skip the line and it was totally worth it! The scares were fantastic, way better than hundred acer manor which we went to first and the 7 year old in front of us wasn't even scared there. My boyfriend had never really been to a haunted house... More

A real scare for sure as the place looks/feels haunted and the makeup and special affects are second to none. Well worth the wait and visit as you will get some genuine scares and again it is so realistic. need to make an evening out of it as parking is offsite and shuttles are needed to visit the place. However... More
