  • It was alright, but after going once, I don't think I'll go again. The tickets were a bit pricey, and I really wasn't very scared. The haunted house also didn't last nearly as long as I thought it would, and for how long I stood in line, I was a little disappointed. Some of the effects were very cool though. I feel like it's something you have to go to at least once in Salt Lake City.
  • Really fun. A little expensive but it's different every year and they put a lot of work into it. The employees do a great job of staying in character.
  • Ive worked here for 5 years. I love this place. I love the acting and the show. This place is amazing.
  • Fun place to come with friends! The lines can get very long and boring. VIP passes are available if you do want to go in quicker. The prices are a little bit too much.
  • Went last Saturday. I think we payed $26 a person that night-? So reasonable price for a haunted house. We waited in the outside line for about half an hour. Then when we finally got inside, we waited in another line for maybe twenty minutes. They have huge screens that show live footage of people being scared, so it was a nice touch and made the line go by quicker. (Only one bathroom inside there, by the way. For guys and girls to share. So be sure to 'go' before coming in or you'll be waiting a while.) They didn't give a hands on option, which was a little disappointing. But their rooms were....amazing. Lots of detail, nicely done. They didn't do anything to divide groups from the the ones in front of them, so a fair amount of times we'd walk in on a group and the actor or prop wouldn't scare us because we were so close. So that was a little dissapointing. The actors all had spot-on makeup, though. And for the small acting and scaring that they did, it was really good. I just wish it could've gotten a little more personal. I'm pretty sure we got out of there in half an hour.....so, a fifty minute line wait, and a half hour scare. Eh. And so to sum this all up: reasonable tickets. Long line wait. Not good spacing between groups. No close up actors. I'd give this a 6/10 and tell my relatives to take their young kids because it wasn't scary, as much as it was slightly amusing.
