  • It was creepy since the beginning. It may have help we were along and my sister really likes and gets scare in hunted houses. There are live actors and dark areas. It was so fun! By far best hunted ho...  more »
  • This was our last stop on our package deal of the Ripley attractions. My fiance' and I were here on our vacation during the hurricane. There are many props before, during, and at the end to check out....  more »
  • We decided to do this on a whim. It was much better than we expected. Great special effects. My two teenagers were actually a little scared during the experience.  more »

  • I took my 11 year old here and he absolutely loved it. It is totally worth the add-on with the aquarium package. The inside feels much larger than the building looks. It is a thrilling experience but not to scary. If you read the plaques on the way in they setup an interesting storyline. It is a bit of a walk from the aquarium but worth the track. There was not a big wait like some of the other properties and I would say it takes 15 - 20 minutes to make it through the haunted attraction. Overall a fun experience.
  • I visited this attraction years ago and I can tell they have made a couple changes. It is pretty scary for kids. My nine year old girls were crying by the end of it. You have to put your hand on the person in front of you whether it’s a stranger or friend, so there’s that. The staff outside of the haunted adventure were friendly. Overall, pretty decent. Make sure to do a bundle discount with another attraction. The Ripley’s aquarium is probably the best, but the Ripley’s museum is worth seeing once.
  • Laser guns being added only a couple of days before we went was great luck because they were fun and added an element of competition (like Lazer tag, you have targets but they're MUTANT and possibly DEAD💀💀💀. It's dark, real dark (how dark you may wonder!? you have to hold a wall/shoulder to navigate around corners at times because you absolutely can't see at all, which I find to be the scariest part) We were a small group but they still brought it 100%. Get the package deal for all the sites!!
  • I wish there was a time machine to go back and get my money back....want a real scare? 8450 pleasant Hill road. Haunted woods through Halloween except Wednesday and Sunday! 6$ a person! 3$ for kids. Very good reviews!!! Starts at 7:30 each night!
  • I was creeped out, but only scared for 3 quick moments. My high school's drama club puts on a scarier show. Workers also lacked that Tennessee hospitality and humor you see at other attractions.
