  • Our 7-year-old daughter wanted to go to this as soon as she heard about it, so when we went to Gatlinburg, it was near the top of our list. I went through it with her, and first of all I would recomme...  more »
  • This haunted mansion has been there since I was a little girl. If you've never been it is a must! Highly recommend! 
  • I have visited tons of haunted houses, both seasonal Halloween attractions and permanent amusement park style haunts. The Ripley's Haunted Adventure is at the bottom of the barrel, so suggest skipping...  more »

  • I get it, actors. People who attend haunted houses can be very annoying and stupid. But tone down on the yelling at people. It would have been more fun if I didn't have to go in a group. All they did was drunkly run through, giggling, forcing me and my boyfriend to run too, because the group can't seperate. So i missed 60% of scares. Also, it was too short. It wasn't all bad though. I'd give it another shot.
  • We went after lunch 3:30. Dont ever! Apparently it gets better after 6. Not willing to try.
  • 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!
  • This is the worst haunted house i have ever been to dont waste your money on going not even worthit at all
  • 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.
