  • Scared the he'll out of my 2 girls. They were shaking on the way out. Made me laugh watching them. Will be coming back next time.
  • Well laid out and definitely scary as you get chased by real actors. Some good props and good value for money. Watch that rope bridge!
  • I guess it depends what you're into? I liked it, wouldn't be in a hurry to go again it is very well done though for what it is.
  • Went here today with the wife and our two kids,it was brilliant,the wife was screaming & the kids were terrified but at the same time we all really enjoyed it. If you visit scarbourough anytime well worth a visit.I spent all the time laughing at the wife & kids reactions,as i had read about it on here so knew what to expect. I am still laughing now as i write this. Well worth the £12 .00 for a family ticket
  • Good scare house, liked the random scream character turning up in different rooms as good too. Recommend a visit if your in the area.
