  • This was the only attraction we actually enjoyed especially this close to Halloween. We made it almost all the way through by ourselves which was fun until we came upon other people in front of us lin...  more »
  • Thought it would be fun as we were in town for a few days. It was fun! Dark, kind of spooky. Took off a star because displays are a bit dated as stated by another reviewer.  more »
  • Sure a few of the figures look a little dated and probably could use a good dusting...however the atmosphere helps! And I enjoyed it. It was fun to see what they decided to make exhibits out of it. I'...  more »

  • I am a nervous Nelly so this place for me was the perfect balance of fun and freaky. The hallways were so dark, paranoid people like me will constantly wait for something to jump out. I haven't laughed that much while being scared in a while. Inexpensive and fun. Perfect combo! And kudos to frankenstein taking pictures out in that heat!
  • This is definitely not for kids under 8 years old. There were some aspects that were definitely not suitable for young children. One example is the electrocution setup. A body convulsing and screaming as he's being "executed" by electric chair. As far as adults go, if you don't mind getting spooked a few times, then this is for you.
  • Pretty cool to see the life-size Predator statue. Worth the admission to walk through and see all the displays.
  • This place is so awesome! Its been a long time, but I remember it like it was yesterday. Realistic looking monsters and people. That scary vibe, but so much fun. Everything was well made, and you could tell they put a lot of work into the wax figures, and so much detail. The staff was friendly and the place was clean. The House Of Frankinstein in in a town with so much to do.The wax museum will always be my favorite though. You just don't see many of them around anymore. I hope to take my kids there one day. I know they would love it. I definitely recommend checking this place out. You won't be sorry.
  • How long has this place been here? I have been going to Lake George for 35 years and I can't ever remember it not being here. It has a Vaudeville type feel to it. There are many famous scenes from traditional horror literature made in wax figures. It is a fun novelty, and worth a visit. I am glad this place has survived so long, I would suggest people visit this place while they can, these sorts of places won't be around forever.
