  • Very interesting tour. We did the ghost tour and our guide added in the history of the Castle. It would have been nice to have a more personal tour with fewer people and to see more of the castle, but...  more »
  • We learned a lot of the history of the Knights of Python. It was really confusing how to find the entrance and someone was standing at the end of the driveway with a flash light, which seems dangerous...  more »
  • I have lived in the area my entire life and have never visited the Castle. I wanted to take my 12 yr old son this summer and finally got around to it. I brought my Mother along as well. There was so m...  more »

  • I went to the Murder Mystery Dinner. I have to say first of all that the actors (3 total) did a great job and were very entertaining. The food was fine, not super quality but fine for a variety of taste and people. What I was disappointed about the the amount of actors, plot line, and actual "mystery" part. I was expecting more like the game clue but this was not the case. The audience did nothing to figure it out and it was more like an afterthought. There was no audience interaction when I came to solving the mystery. I would not recommend the Murder Mystery to anyone who actually wants to solve a mystery.
  • The building looks wonderful from the street. We were extremely disappointed as we are not in Springfield long enough to take today's tour. I walked up to take a picture and a lady informed me I was walking on private property and to get off and no pictures. Unfortunately she was the rudest person I have encountered since high school and so unlike the people I have met between Washington State and here. I left with no desire to see or hear about the beautiful estate.
  • My family went on the night ghost tour. I was hesitant after reading so many negative reviews on the owners and staff. I went, expecting the worst. But upon entering this beautiful place, we had quite a welcoming experience. The tour was interesting and the ambience of the house at night was intriguing. The tour guide was passionate about the house, but not exactly the greatest with enthusiasm. She would have been great with maybe a small group. We couldn't even hear many of her stories. I commend her for the patience with such a loud group, with many smaller children. Because of this, it would have been nice if it went in smaller groups with age limits. But overall, we had an excellent time and recommend it to anyone in the Springfield area. As far as ghost are concerned, I'm sure there are plenty here, but they kept their distance on this night.
  • The Murder mystery dinner is a must go to! The cast is super fun, the staff is friendly and helpful and it's just a cool place to be in. Totally recommend. Thanks guys for making our night super special!
  • I am a professional photographer and took pictures of my niece who had her wedding here. The proprietor was extremely unprofessional, I had to ask her to get out of my pictures on multiple occasions. (She was taking her own photos on her phone for some reason) she even hijacked my bride and groom as I was taking them to a different location and told me where and how to take the photos. Later, she took a cooler the DJ had brought with him that contained bottled water and threw it in the dumpster because outside drink wasn't allowed?! I later found her taking a plate from off the guests dinner tables, and dishing up herself a plate of food without asking. Horrible experience.
