Review This Haunt

    I was there on Sat night and I had a great time. The corn maze was great and the mansion was worth the wait. The only thing I didn't like was the experiment. It was corny but at least I got to sit down and rest from all the standing around I did waiting on lines.

  • Wasn't worth the money

    I've always heard good things about this place and finally went with my friends last night , but honestly I was disappointed about it. The maze was pretty cool but the mansion was a joke, mostly because the group in front of us was going so slow we caught up to them, so we saw a lot of the actors coming.

  • Bang for your buck

    I went tonight with a friend, the mansion was the first thing we went into, it was good until we caught up to the people in front of us, and the people behind us caught up to all of us so it turned into one huge group. Next we went to The Experiment, it was kind of cool and unique, I didn't like my glasses getting squirted with water. The corn maze was last and by far the best part, I love the long walk through corn stalks. The actors all were great and I enjoyed my night at Schmitts.

  • 2nd Times the Charm

    Hello Long Island, I went to the Haunted House last week and was very surprised. A Great Haunted House and a really good Corn maze. The Experiment was free and it was a really cool addition to the Haunt. Overall Enjoyed all three attractions and will be going back tonight.

  • It was worth it

    Schmitt's daytime haunted mansion was creepy but fun.(I was too afraid to go in the nighttime one) The daytime one is okay for bringing kids.

  • Fun time!

    Me and my brother went last night. All Three attractions were a great value for the Price.

  • Overall Impressive Time!

    Went Last Night and got the Combo Pass. Was a good deal except for the Corn Maze. The Haunted Mansion was really cool! i hate clowns so man did I hate this haunt ;) The Experiment was very interesting. Definitely a new type of experience I enjoyed. The Corn Maze just wasn't scary but was a good effort. We were online for a little while but not to bad. They had some girl playing with Fire outside which was cool!!!!! cause it made the wait a little more enjoyable but then they had Justin Bieber playing? Loose the Pop Music it actually made waiting in your lines unbearable.

    Ok so this was a funny story but I went to the Haunted Mansion last night with my friends expecting another haunt just like Darkside or what not but we were surprised it was actually very good, But where my new took a turn was waiting on line for the experiment. I'm standing there reading signs about how I'm going to get wet? Touched? Loud Noises? Disturbing Images?! I was freaking out and then the time came when the Doctor came outside and let us in through the Door. I walked in and it was a makeshift laboratory! It was dirty and I don't know how they did it but it ACTUALLY SMELLED LIKE A HOSPITAL! I work in a hospital and I knew that smell right away! Now this was all good and I was expecting another walk through until I got into the Main chamber....A FULL STAGE SHOW! I couldn't believe it! Live theater mixed with Video! I couldn't believe how amazing the show was and reading the other post on here..YES! HOLD ON to your hats at the end of the show! This is a PURE GEM and should definitely be advertised more then it is!

  • Change Up.

    Okay so I went Last week with my Brother and this week I took my Fiance. Went through all three attractions and I have to say everything was really tip top. Nice Change in the Experiment! Won't ruin it but man at the end of the show hold on to your hats or they may end up on the other side of the lab ;) Something else new was the inclusion of a Fire Performer! They had a girl twirling Balls of Fire outside the Mansion and they used American Horror Story Music which Made me smile :) It was very entertaining. Also my only complaint I really have to say is that the Mansion, Corn Maze and Experiment were all really good in creating atmosphere but I was waiting online for an hour to get into the Mansion listening to Miley Cryus? What is the deal with the Sweet 16 DJ? The Haunts were great but in all honesty I don't know if I would return to wait online for an hour and be blasted with Teenybopper shit.

  • Very impressed

    Really cool place. There was a fire performance,, creepy clowns, a crazy contortionist, a claustrophobic room, trippy lighting, and a lot more. My friends were really afraid in the pitch black maze. I won't spoil it .. go see for yourself! Experiment and Corn Maze were good but the mansion was really well executed.. Different scares for people with different fears!!

  • Wonderfully devious!

    As a Haunt Reviewer I have been to Haunts Across the Country and I have to say I love The Haunted Mansion of Melville. I have traveled to a few other haunts this season (Chamber of Horrors, Darkside & Bayville Screampark) and I'm still a loyal fan of this haunt. Every year they change it up and I have never seen the same thing twice. The Corn Maze was Ok but it never really was great anyway so I'd give the Corn Maze 3 Pumpkins. The Experiment I'd give 5 Pumpkins. I loved the show and the effects were so much better then last year. Fantastic Haunt and thank you again for the memories! Regards, James Marsdena

  • One of the Best

    I went to this Haunted House on Saturday and I don't know what the other guy who wrote "A bunch of kids just embarrassing themselves" was on but I loved every aspect of this Haunt. For me I personally loved the Experiment. I thought it was funny and the two actors I saw were throwing furniture across the stage and grabbed my girlfriends head to do an exam. It terrified the fuck out of her as they touch you. It was very HP Lovecraft for me anyway. As for the Haunt I enjoyed the rooms. I like old Dark Haunts, It adds to the feeling of the nostalgic haunts from the 80s. The cornmaze was good but yes I do agree that they let to many groups go to quickly and I too ran into the group in front of me. Overall great job guys I'll be back for Halloween.

  • Was OK

    I used to go every year. I feel like they don't change enough of their show. It is the same every time. Not the rooms exactly but the acting is always stale. Even with that experiment 4d theater, just a bunch of kids embarrassing themselves.

  • Such an awesome time!

    We did the corn maze first after going to another haunted house somewhere else that had a ton of fog. It was dark, it was scary, the actors were actually doing a great job. The only problem was that they didn't wait enough between groups so we kept running into another group of people that was quite large and all the scare was for the 7 year old they had with them. If I could have walked it alone it would have amplified the fear. The haunted mansion was a last minute decision and was so worth it. There's a part where you have to squeeze through this area and it's so scary. The rooms were decorated beautifully and just so well done. Go here!

  • Always a blast

    I love this Haunted House they update alot of the rooms each year so its always fresh. The actors are great and the atmosphere is always impressive. I loved the zombie getting his head blown off video btw. Only suggestion is check your walls for nails one of us got a small cut from feeling the walls to see where we were going. Overall amazing as always.

  • The Start of something Great

    So I got a special treat this year. I got an exclusive behind the scenes tour of the Haunted Mansion of Melville. Not just the Haunted Mansion but also the Experiment. I will give a brief but complete synopsis of what I have seen in this tour. The Haunted Mansion - First off there are all new sets this year. I was really impressed with the level of difficulty of these sets. There is much detail to gaze over and the Rooms in my opinion are really good, I did not hit a point of dullness. Next was the sound and smell. I really enjoyed that the sets have a new added sense this year. They have Audio in almost every different room with soundscapes that fit each scene and they have some sort of smell sprays. It really makes the rooms feel authentic. Lot's of new animatronics this year as well as props, You can definitely tell they are amping it up for there 20th anniversary. Also they changed the facade and the one word I'll use to describe my favorite update...."Lightning" When you see it you'll know what I'm talking about, What a fantastic illusion. Now moving on to the Experiment. I saw the experiment last year and enjoyed it. I went with a group of people and a few of my freinds didn't like it but I think for the wrong reasons. They went into it looking to have the shit scared out of the and although the footage you are shown is definitely scary and disturbing the show with the actors made me laugh. I think this is something missing from the haunts today...Comedy in dark humor. Anyways they definitely gave it a major face lift. Lots of new props. Some new startles scares and a maze at the end this year. I only saw part of the show but I will tell you if you are faint of heart do not watch (It was great). All in all I can say I can't wait for opening night to see it all in action. Great Job Guys and Good Luck!

  • Great place to go for a good time at Halloween!

    I love this place so much! It's only $27 with the coupon off their website and you now get 3 Events! The Haunted Mansion, Corn Maze, and the new "Experiment"! The haunted mansion was amazing like it always is! Very well put together and fantastic actors! The corn maze is just creepy and fun walking in the dark maze, then you get scared at almost every corner! The experiment to me, honestly was great! You really need to enjoy horror movies and allow yourself to have an open mind. It was like being inside a movie, like the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The actors were great and I loved it! Way to go everyone at Schmitt's Farm! =D Jimmy

  • Pricey but a great Halloween Haunt!

    It is on the expensive side but the actors are great. Would recommend this to anybody who wants a good scare.
