Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Loved the ambience

    Loved the ambience and the entire team. I was there with my kids and we had a wonderful time. The playhouse was designed so well. They let just enough people on so we did not have the issue of being overcrowded while exploring the scenes. That made the experience even more scary. We made it through all the rooms and was terribly scared. It is our 3rd year in the row and we are sure to come back.

  • Email Verified Pretty awesome

    It was pretty awesome and well done. The set design, rooms, and props were impressive. Actors’ makeup and costumes looked realistic. I was impressed by the sound effects. In one room, I thought I was walking on water, but instead it was smoke. Few of the jump scares caught me off guard. Overall, it was great fun. I totally recommend this haunt to all scare lovers out there.

  • Awesome experience

    Awesome experience. My husband, son and I had an absolute blast!! The playhouse was unique from other haunts. It was eye catchy with lots of props and animatronics. Nice effects, impressive design on the sets. The showmanship of the staff was well played. Totally worth it.

  • The drive there was scarier than the actual house

    I’ve visited a new haunted house every year for the past 10 years and this one didn’t really scare me the way I though, given the ‘really scary’ rating. Out of about 30 rooms that I think I went thru, maybe about 3 where actually unique and scary( one of which resembled an ‘eyes wide shut ‘ mask with the long bird nose, where there was a room full of the same character but they didn’t really move) . The setup is convenient since u can get drinks and food while u wait, which is really helpful if there’s a long wait. Ps I bought my tix online , my card was charged, but I never recvd my confirmation code, then I was made to pay again when I arrived.

  • Email Verified Fantastic place to go!!

    Fantastic place to go if you want to get scared. Few of the jump scares caught us by surprise as we were distracted by something else. Excellent special effects as well. Found absolutely nothing to be disappointed about. I want to go back on next Halloween.

  • Amazing time!!

    We honestly had an amazing time. Themed after playhouse, kudos to the team it definitely looked like one. Except there is something that had gone all wrong inside this one. The story was amusing. Worth every penny.

  • Email Verified Different from others

    It was great fun at the playhouse. It was quite different from other haunt houses. It was more fun and a bit of eerie in there. Definitely there were some scary parts and we did feel fear. Kids are sure to feel intrigued with a lot of doll stuff looking scary. The presentation was remarkable. A lot of effort has gone into the making and the actors did a tremendous job. We loved our time there.

  • Email Verified Entertaining

    I and wife drove for more than an hour to reach Gateway’s and we were quite impressed. The half an hour walk was quite scary and entertaining. The room had separate themes and creepy interiors. The scare intensity was good, but I would want more intense scares. Staff was helpful and friendly. Actors were passionate and professional. Totally worth the money and time. Certainly I would suggest this haunt to my friends.

  • Email Verified The Scariest

    This haunt goes totally out of the box to give you the heebie jeebies. I never get scared and I mean NEVER REALLY scared and this REALLY scared me this year. I was literally out of breath and shaky when I came out. These spooks give. it. their. all. Plus the haunt was so long!! We had to be in there 30 mins or longer. If youre looking for a REAL scare this halloween season, Gateway is the place to go. Would give this haunt 6/5 if I could.

  • Email Verified Nice evening with friends...

    It was an hour long drive but it was worth the effort and the investment. It offered so much better experience than other haunt houses I have visited. Was there with a bunch of my friends and we had a blast. The name sounded like it was more of fun and no scares. But this one definitely scared us. Loved the way it was set up. The props and animatronics was good. It all reminded of a scary doll house. The actors brought in their skills with loads of histrionics. It was a nice evening with friends.

  • Email Verified Excellent sets

    We loved every part of Gateway’s. We took just about 30 minutes to go through the entire haunt. Excellent sets, props, scares and special effects. The element of distraction was used to maximum effect in the haunt. When your focus is off, some jump scare happens or a scare actor appears out of nowhere scaring the crap out of you. We screamed couple of times. Actors were awesome and they stayed in character. Well worth the drive and money. We can’t wait to go back next year.

  • Email Verified An entertaining experience!

    This place is more than those other gory, grabby haunted houses; this is a real experience! The "haunted house" is themed, which I think is really cool. I loved coming to the playhouse because of the actors! They're so committed to staying in character and do a wonderful job! And come ready to play along with them! The wait to enter the "haunted house" is a little bit long, but it's well worth it! The walk through is lengthy and I'd say there are more actors than props, which I really respect. Besides, there's plenty to eat and drink while you wait and entertainment too! The Haunted Playhouse is definitely something you can plan on spending a chunk of your evening enjoying! It's a really enertaining experience!

  • Email Verified Good price for a fun night out

    Had a good time. Although Ive been here in the past and had a better time. I think the timing was a bit off and the group behind us was pushing into us a little. I wasnt very scared this time but maybe its because I have visited before. Good place for adults and childrrn alike.

  • Great Fun. Lots of Scares, sounds, smells, and haunts

    This is a great haunted house. Lots of twists , turns, uneven floors, smells, sounds, actors that stare you down till you cant take it anymore. At least a half hour walk. Not those lousy ten minute walks. Great fun. Don't miss it.

  • One of the Best on Long Island

    Been here twice in three years. Well worth it. Attention to detail and plenty of surprises. All of the characters are very good. Only negative is the wait if you do not have Fast Pass.
