  • This was great fun! I wasn't as scared as I would have liked to be, but I had such a great time! As soon as we entered, my friend volunteered me to go to the front of the group to lead everyone and I'm so happy she did! Great fun throughout. Will definitely try the basement next year!
  • Hands down the haunted house in Pittsburgh! We find the crowds more tolerable by going early in the season. The "basement" is an extra thrilling attraction. The actors all do such a great job. We go every year.
  • The Basement is a visceral and theatrical experience, but not for the squeamish. I go back every year to enjoy the many underground rooms and characters.
  • They absolutely nailed the sets and atmosphere, 10/10 on that. I didn't get as as scared as I wanted though. Do not listen to me on that, it is a ton of fun and definitely worth the money!!
  • The sets were pretty good but that was about it. None of the actors were scary they never followed you or confronted you. The just stood up and made a noise. The scariest part of the night was probably a moving floor I wasn't expecting to move. Definitely not worth $21 at all.

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
