First, the security guard said that we could use flashlights but the guide said ONLY IN THE STAIRWELL. I understand the spiritual factor of Waverly Hills Sanatorium but how can you enjoy all of its mystery in the dark? The tour group was TOO big and TOO loud, the tour was TOO fast, there was no time to look around AND the guide was not very informative or enthusiastic. He mentioned his short time as a "ghost hunter", that he was on his sixth week of the tour AND the stairs and how others experienced the visit. The only "story" was of the nurse who was found hanged. He did mention some of the treatments used for TB at the beginning of the tour before entering. The "music" selection was dreadful and loud. The outside "entertainment" was lacking of entertainment IF you could see the show. They should not have the haunted house and the mini tour at the same time. Do you really think we could have an experience with that disturbing downstairs display. They should also reiterate what the website states for those lacking good health due to the many steps needed to get to the fifth floor. Most people do not review websites before visiting an event. It was all poorly done. This visitors opinion is that it is overrated and overpriced. DO NOT BOTHER GOING. It is a shame that a once beautiful building that tried to do good things has fallen. This building and its owners have gone to commercialism, get 'em in, get 'em out, get their money.
