  • Awful customer service. The manager Erik was rude and smug. They do not accommodate large groups well. The attractions felt rushed and the employees did not seem to care about the services they were.....  more

  • Saw this on Halloween day and absolutely loved it! It was a fun and spooky story with fantastic special effects and great production quality! And, the performer was a delight both on and off stage...

  • Spirits of those condemned are still around proving their innocence. That is except one. Its a black mass that I caught out of the corner of my eye. It will try to lure you, so be careful. If it gets inside you, you could take it home, so be careful what you ask for. Turn your voice recorder on and ask questions. Just be careful what you ask for. If you ask what was it like to be hung, you'll experience shortness of breath, and have an itchy rash around your neck. It's no joke, so if you can't take it, stay far away!!!!
  • The short play was entertaining and enjoyable. And the trolley tour was really nice and funny. I would say the only downfall was not being able to get off the trolley at certain stops (house of 7 gables and winter island) to take pictures. We went at night and it was beautiful. BMW is pretty hilarious and friendly too!
  • A great mixture of history and theatre! My friend and I went to the main stage show and were simultaneously spooked, awed, and informed. The actress (who I believe played every live acting part) was stellar! We also went through the Lost Museum, which was a lot of fun! The construction was quite impressive and the story was interesting. Don't be afraid of being too spooked, though; it's quite kid-friendly!
  • My friends and I went here on Tuesday. We did both the theatre and the Lost Museum. We visited a bunch of different Salem attractions that day and this was hands down the best of them. Both the theatre and the museum offered a unique mix of live action, digital effects, and practical effects. And each experience offers a narrative instead of just walking through something and staring at a bunch of statues. Would highly recommend to anyone who likes a good story and interactive experience.
  • My boyfriend and I bought the triple tickets so we got to experience The Lost Museum, see the live show and go on the trolley tour. This was our favorite stop on our trip so far! The Lost Museum and show were awesome and the highlight for us was the trolley tour with Jack. He was super funny, knowledgeable and genuine. Sometimes when you take tours the one leading them feels bored, not him! We were totally immersed and entertained while learned/seeing a lot. Thank you so much!!!
