I thought it would be a little bit scarier and I didn’t think that we would be stumbling through in the dark for the whole time. I jumped with one bang and didn’t like crawling. Someone touched my hand that wasn’t anyone in my family...More

This is by far the best haunted house in Niagara and all of new england. Its NOT cheesy crops and actors in lame scary masks. Without giving it away - just try it.

My daughter really wanted to try this attraction. We both love haunted houses. This one was kind of terrifying. There were lots of surprises!

It was alot of fun and I could see why 150k people backed out! However, I don't want to spoil the fun. Just try it but it's not for the faint of heart!

We went in the middle of the day and there was only a group already inside. We waited about 5 minutes while the group finished and the employees reset, was a fun time.
