    We did this with a group of four. I normally don't do haunted houses because I don't like being startled but this wasn't too bad. Enjoyable, lots of interesting effects and detail to look at. The elev...  more »

    Very short and not very scary. Maybe 2-3 times we jumped in moderate surprise. Only 2 live actors, otherwise just pictures, movies, still props, and limited moving props. Many of the scares were predi...  more »

    This was really well done and creative. My whole family enjoyed it. We were all terrified the whole time. The price was worth the scare. Will definitely do this again one day.

    I am reviewing Angela as my daughter didn't make it past the ticket booth before deciding she couldn't go in the haunted house. Angela was great as the rest of our group went in she kindly refunded our unscanned tickets, gave us some great advice on things to do instead, and made the whole situation easier on a frazzled mother and her terrified child.

    Worst "Haunted Attraction" ever. We were told it was a self guided walk through, we had to hold onto each other. When we got separated from the group the actors stopped us and told us we were walking too fast. As adults who were stuck in a group of children, we would have had to crawl through the house so the children who were not even old enough to go though the house so they could keep up with us. It is not worth the money.

    I was a 14 year old girl, who had been to countless haunted houses with a love for horror films, when I arrived at Ripley's haunted adventure. I was ready and excited for a truly scary experience and what I received was a cheesy, poorly put together rip off. I went with my dad, grandpa, and a 15 year old boy I was vacationing with, who was ready to comfort me in any terror that might come over me. However, the only scary thing I witnessed, was the occasional cursing of one of the grown men lined up behind me, when bumping into something in the dimly lit room that consisted of cheap decorations and two actors throughout the entire, sucky experience.

    This Haunted House was well put together. I don't particularly care for this type of entertainment, but my family wanted to try it out. It was an interesting experience. . .about par for the course in terms of Haunted Houses.
