Don't waste your money! It was about two minutes long. Needs more actors and music or creepy sounds at least... At $10 a head you would think they could afford better.

Lots of jump scares, low on the FX. Worth doing for a rainy afternoon pick-me-up, but I wouldn't line up for it! Ends abruptly and unceremoniously. Still, it was a fun and silly way to pass a few minutes!

I don't understand how this can be rated Salem's only 5 Star Haunted House. We were through it in under five minutes and I think it's kind of pricey. Definitely not scary. Because it's located right on Essex Street, it's the perfect tourist trap. Pass...More

It is too short, not scary and a bit pricy. Expected more. It has a cool lobby. I would definitely skip it and find something better to do.

Of course it was the middle of the day in July, so it was not busy. It took less than 15 minutes to go through it, maybe even 10 minutes. We asked for the scariest option but it was one person that jumped out at...More
