Funny, fast, over in a flash

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... read more

Was told it was 7 minutes and the best in Salem. Was maybe one minute and absolutely horrible, even at level ten! Do not do. Not worth your money!

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.

Bought tickets for this haunted house the person behind the counter told me it was about 6 minutes long. It was less than three with maybe 4 hunters trying to scare people all the same Hunters running through the place. A complete waste of money and time they should be embarrassed calling this a haunted house. It absolutely changed the... More

Went here in October for the halloween season. Surprisingly unlike the other haunted houses in the area, this place did not have a very long line, which was refreshing. I knew someone, so I didn't have to pay, but if I did the price would have been very fair. A great twist to this house is that they asked for... More

We had a really fun time here. Scary but not the scariest. Fun times were had by all when we went here.

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 this on up and buy a ticket for the Chambers of Terror instead.

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 us the entire time. It might be better during a busier time with more employees... More
