  • Perfect

    Midweek themed night was perfect Snacks were yummy. Absolutely loved the pumpkin canoli, fried oreos yummy and the nachos n cheese was deerelish! Thanks billy jeans! Fun fun fun and scary. The different rooms and props and smells and actor's were on point. The people in front of us were a tad bit annoying but did not ruin our great time. The length of the walk thru was perfect. We had a blast. Great job!

  • Email Verified So worth it!!

    This haunted house exceeded my expectations as the actors and their makeup/costumes were great and there were so many different themed rooms which kept you on your toes. It lasted about 25 minutes so you definitely got your money’s worth. They have a good system in which you don’t have to wait in a line but rather can walk around and grab some food/drinks and hangout until your # is called. Overall it was a great experience and I will recommend it to others!

  • Just as described...

    this was one of the best haunts my family and I have done in awhile. The common area with food and drink purchase available before your number is called was much better than the conventional line setup. The haunt itself was well done... the actors were engaged. the sets were detailed and fun. transitions were well thought out...just a great collection of scares. i only wish it was less of a assembly line experience, quite crowded at certain points making it less scary. overall, highly recommend.

  • 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.
