This place scared the ......... out of my fiance. If you like haunted houses go here. Creepy monsters will follow you all over the house and keep you on your toes.

Great time with our 11 and 9 year old! We had a blast! Perfect local favorite! Locally owned! Not too scary but scary enough!

This is one of the best! Instead of just walking through the house, you must go through secret passages. It's fun, spooky, and a great time! This should be on everyone's list of things to do.

This is, hands down, one of the best haunted houses that I have ever been in. The house actually takes a bit to get through, as making your way through the house is very difficult with multiple hidden passage ways. The actors inside really add...More

This was an awesome hunted house (Mansion). My family truly enjoyed themselves and my husband who never likes anything really enjoyed this part of our trip. This was so awesome and truly scared everybody in our group. Great job Mysterious Mansion.

My mom and I did this, finally, after mamy years. I do not like haunted houses in any way. Maybe I am a scardy cat, but they just freak me out. This was on my bucket list since I had been trying to do it...More

We first came here on our honeymoon and now visit every time we're in town. It's a legit haunted house, so when we took our girls (ages 6, 7, and 11) it was too much for them, but we love it and have very fond...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!
