I went with a group of 5 people. We were completely split up, which going through together is half the fun. There was nothing scary about it. Came out dirty from things being wiped, sprayed and squirted on me. Not scary, just dirty. It cost...More

I had never been and had a real feeling of dread going into it solo. I went with what the actors wanted me to do and I was a mixture of annoyed and slightly put off by the weirdness. I was most freaked out in...More

I have been to the "Haunted Basement" three years. Last year was a huge waste of money. This year was so scary I thought I would have nightmares. Hats off to the fabulous actors! However, my husband is disabled and I am his caregiver. The...More

I won't give anything away, but it was fun, disturbing, confusing and tested allot of people's comfort zones. You have to sign a waiver before being admitted, and you may get messy. :) It was about 30 to 45 minutes of "dark" entertainment.
