  • I absolutely loved this place!! The actors were very convincing and it was just an amazing ambiance! Recommend 100%! 
  • I wish this were longer! I love haunted houses and this one was pretty basic, but I love the amount of live actors they use. So many haunted houses save money by using props and dummies, most of the s...  read more »
  • Lots of fun and a few screams. I love a good haunted house, the more terrifying the better!! This was certainly not the scariest one I've been to but it was a lot of fun. I would not recommend bringin...  read more »
  • We were skeptical of this place based on previous reviews so perhaps we went with lowered expectations. Ultimately, we were pleasantly surprised! Considering my 12 year old was genuinely petrified during the entire experience and my 11 year old was crying from terror upon completion, Id say it gets the job done if you want to get scared. There were several clever attributes that even scared the adults at times. Overall, it was fun!
  • Short, very few jump scares, and very few live actor interactions. The lack of live actor jump scares is by far the most glaring issue with the place as this is the most important element to a good haunted attraction. It is simply one of the lowest quality haunted attractions I've ever been to which is odd considering the budget they likely have to work with. The East Tennessee area is lucky to have had so many good haunted attractions in the area, but this one is the worst one in my opinion.
  • I loved it! It wasn't necessarily terrifying but I liked the jump scares and the atmosphere. I will admit, the lights that they try to sell you are a waste of money. Don't buy them. They don't emit any useful light whatsoever. I actually turned mine off in the middle because it didn't work. Other than that, it was great. The guy outside scared the crap out of me when he snorted right in my ear, but that's what drew me into the attraction. I would definitely do it again.
  • Very short and expensive. This haunted house relies almost entirely on a blackout experience. However they sell little lights at the front desk. So the entire experience is ruined by some kids with lights. Also very few actors, and only one of them was any fun.
  • Wish I could give them 0 stars!!! We waited in line for 20 minutes after buying the ticket and backed out cause the manager who was supposed to run the whole thing was out on his break, chatting away while we were waiting!!
