Hidden gem out of all tourist traps on the strip. Look for discounts on Groupon. Very scary. Actors were crazy and acrobatic popping and jumping around from everywhere. I would highly recommend.

The scare crew was amazing! The girl that jumps and crawls everywhere was fantastic! Always keeping you on your toes!! Had a Groupon that made the price very affordable. Otherwise prob would not have done it! Great fun though!

It's authentic, magical and fun! A real Victorian style house, find your way through, scary fun. A true treasure in Gatlinburg's list of things to do! Not all gore like some haunted house rely on, but a truly unique experience. I love haunted attractions, I visit them at every place I vacation and this is truly a great one. Multi-levels... More

Our boys (9 & 6) have begged to go to a haunted house, so while we were in town, we decided to try the Mysterious Mansion. It gave my husband & I a few good scares, as well as our kids too.

My wife and I went last weekend with our nine year old, and we all three loved it. The house is one of a kind, but the actors really made the experience. I don't want to spoil anything, but I've never seen people do things so physically demanding in a haunt before. It's obvious this place is a labor of... More

We were happy to find that the mysterious mansion survived the fires in Gatlinburg in tact. Went through it twice, back to back. It was awesome!

This attraction was surprisingly better than expected. Very spooky, the walk through the mansion was scary and the actors did an amazing job. I am glad we finally decided to visit this place

Thank-you Thomas, very much appreciated! Thanks to my Creative Director's quick thinking as well as my actors who helped him put up makeshift sprinklers, saturating the deck and surrounding grounds with water and fire retardant nothing is scorched in the back but the woods. Wind damage and smoke damage is minimal. Looking forward to haunting you all again very soon! More
