Our small kids insisted on visiting this house. Two cried and two hid in their jackets. It was a great haunted house for the adults! We did make it all the way through.

My boyfriend and I went and it was a great experience. I was scared and he wasn't. Luckily we had others and I was sandwiched in-between him and a nice lady. Overall great fun.

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!

Our tour of the mansion was self-guided, which was fun. I'd say about 20-30 minutes.

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!!!
