“Best.Haunted.House.Ever.”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

This is by far the scariest haunted mansion that I have ever been in. Not only is it probably the scariest attraction you'll go to, it also has features that no other haunted house has. This is well worth your money.

“So much fun screaming!”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

I don't always have high expectations for haunted houses, but this one was awesome! I'm from the USA where the workers aren't allowed to touch you, but it added so much at this house for the staff to reach out and grab your ankles or all of a sudden feel someone brush fingers through your hair. The whole thing is almost totally pitch black except for sections where strobes or something will come on, so you don't know what's coming or when someone will suddenly whisper in your ear. By the end of it I was screaming almost the whole way and running into my friend in front of me! Well worth the money (and cheaper than most activities in Queenstown).

“Bring a change of underwear”
Reviewed 21 July 2014 via mobile

This is our 3rd trip to Queenstown. We have walked past here and wanted to go in. So glad we did. Creepy, scary, funny. Awesome value. Gets the heart going as much as the Canyon swing or sky diving did! A Queenstown must do

“Scary but lots of fun!”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

We took 3 kids, aged 7,8 & 9 through and everyone had a great time. They didn't recommend it for younger kids but we managed to get through without calling chicken.. Kids were scared but not overly so..because of their younger ages I think they probably went easier on us than normal which was appreciated. Photos were great too - highly recommend it to everyone!
