  • Nice place. Shows a lot of history. A lot of the houses however are not well lit and have some pretty scary mannequins standing inside, that made me jump more than once. Also the maintenance could be a bit better. Definitely worth the visit though. If you like the scary stuff, be sure to check out their ghost tours.
  • Its a great way to see what life was like. Needs a bit more work, so go visit. Lovely couple run/own it.
  • Good place for visit. Old town where nobody lives. It takes about 2-3 hours to see all. You can also experience real haunted house
  • This was an experience I wont go back for! Everything was run down and lacking. This is definitely not a place for children as it is unsafe and injuries are very likely to occur. Firstly my foot went through the floor in one building and I didn't venture into most buildings as the floor creaked and bowed and cracked under foot in others and I wasn't going to take the chance of falling through again. One building has a bees nest hanging from it and I had to run in order to evade a lot of angry bees as we walked past. The bike shop was a bunch of rusty bikes completely covered in spiders webs. In fact the whole place was covered in spiders webs ..If you have Arachnophobia this is definitely not the place for you as in order to see anything you need to brush aside webs. It was a shame because you could actually see potential but it was just completely unloved and lacking in upkeep and maintenance. It is time for a closure in order to get this place to a safety standard that is safe for the public to use without risk of injury and a visit from a pest control company is much needed. For the $25 per head I don't believe the sprained ankle and the spider web experience was for me. I was not expecting a lot but it was not what was shown on the brochures and websites no horses no shiny old cars and no people in costumes just a lot of rust and spiders.
  • Great Place to visit......very impressive set up Gotta Love It Follow me on Instagram: uwe_foto and photorepublicnoosa Thank you
