Review This Haunt
  • 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.

  • Don't even think about it, JUST GO!

    I just got back from the BEST Haunted Attraction (and I have been to many). These people actually WANT TO scare you and they do a fantastic job of it ! Be prepared to use all of your senses as you navigate your way through this haunted place! Visually the costumes are perfect and the props are realistic. The actors look deranged and the place looks like something out of your worst nightmare. From hanging body bags to complete darkness where you have to feel your way around, you have absolutely no idea what awaits you . The smells alone make you want to question your own sanity. I wasn't sure if I was smelling something bizarre or if I was just losing my mind. After ahwile I found myself tasting what I was smelling. What a unique experience. The sounds were terrifying as well. This was NOT A BUNCH OF KIDS ANNOYINGLY SCREAMING IN YOUR FACE. From moans or torture to snake-like hissing, the sounds were ones of fear and distress. Sometimes the lack of noise and macabre stares were more unnerving than any sounds the human body can actually product. The best part is that it's not a basic walk through haunt. Of course you do walk through but there are twists and turns, corridors, tight places and different stairs and levels throughout. It's also both indoors and outdoors...How cool is that ! Thank you for such a wonderful job. Your efforts are evident and appreciated. Great way for adults to get a chance to enjoy Halloween !

  • Fantastic Opportunity to Enjoy Halloween !

    Absolutely the Best Haunted Attraction ! ( and I have been to many). They actually WANT to SCARE YOU TO DEATH! From the actors, to wardrobe designers and makeup artists, this is professionally done. Be prepared to have them invoke all of your senses in the ultimate fright experience. The costumes are AWESOME, these people look like a bunch of deranged freaks. Take a minute to actually look at the props they use: the stuff looks like it something out of a torture chamber ! Even though the actors are not suppose to touch you , be prepared to feel around in the darkest areas, run into body bags and grab hold of whoever is with you to hide from the fear. The smells are bizarre too...I actually though I was just losing my mind with these horrid smells ! That was totally cool...after ahwile I felt like I was tasting what I was smelling! The noises were perfect as well. I am calling them noises because they were NOT A BUNCH OF ANNOYING SCREAMERS. The sounds were more like tortured moans, cries for help, snake like hisses, inappropriate laughter and just plain noises you expect out of a psycho place. My absolute favorite is that it's not a basic walk through...there are different levels, stairs, corridors and both indoor and outdoor parts. Thank you for a wonderful production. You guys really do a magnificent job and provide a really fearful and fun attraction . A great way for adults to enjoy Halloween. Seriously, just go, don't even think twice about it!

  • A must go !

    This was hands down the best haunted attraction i have ever been to .The $25 cover charge was well worth the experience. The actors, the scenery, the horrid smells, the special effects were all superb. This was not your run of the mill, great adventures "fright fest" haunted attraction. This was a scene straight out of a horror flick. The actors get up close and personal. You are challenged to walk through a corridor of hanging body bags, walk across a floor that is made to feel as if it is sinking all the while you are frightened as to what lies around the corner. A+++. Thank you for the terrific.. or horrific...night !

  • So worth it!!!!'

    I go to as many haunts as I can during this time and Gateway has definitely hands down been my favorite. Lines weren't bad at all and if you have to wait there are things to do to keep you busy there such as games, shows and food and drinks. The actors got me good on more then one occasion. For the price and how long it takes to go through I couldn't ask for any better. This was first time ever going here because it's so far from me but there is no doubt in my mind that I will be coming back every year from now on. By far my favorite haunt. ??

  • The perfect fright night date night!

    This is by far my favorite haunt! Gateway's Haunted Playhouse is such a great experience and every year is refreshed. The costumes and sets are theatrical and nothing short of AMAZING. Def get some good scares every year! Outside, in the Beer (fear) Garden, is a nice waiting place; drink and snack in a Halloween themed set-up. It's all organized very well so even if there's a wait, it's entertaining the whole time. This is my #1 haunted house go-to place year after year. ?

  • Extremely Scary

    I have been to many Haunted attractions over the years (including professional) and this is by far one of the BEST Haunted Houses I have ever been to. There are a lot of actors who continuously scare you in both "pop" outs as well as "acting". The attraction utilizes a range of effects to give you an experience you won't forget! By far one of the best Haunted Houses. Don't miss it!

  • Great time and a great haunt

    I visited Gateway Haunted House on a first date and it didn't disappoint! From the time you pull into the lot the experience begins, a little mystery, a little whimsical, and a lot of fall!!! Once inside the playhouse was GREAT!!! The scenery changes, it involves indoor and outdoor experiences, and requires you to move around a lot. It isn't just walking down a hallway with a person who follows you. The smells, sounds, and actors costumes were great! Me and my date both had a wonderful time and would definetly go again!

  • BEST Haunt on LI

    Deciding where to go this Halloween season? The Gateway should be your 1st choice. This is a professional haunt filled with actors, after all, this is a playhouse. This year has outdone all other years. It's endless. The actors are incredible. It's not your usual pop up scare house. This will surprise you and trust me, you haven't seen one as good as this one.

  • Awesome haunted house

    I have been to a few over the years, but never to a 'preview night' of a haunted house- it was great. If it was a preview I am intrigued to see the final product. I was more than impressed. It was a great night out and top notch show. It had some very scary moments and overall lots of fun and worth it. The actors and sets are amazing. I am going back for Halloween.

  • "Best" haunt experience

    Top notch haunt. I've been taking my kids and neices and nephews for 4 years straight! This is always our first haunt of the season, and always the best! Long wait doesn't seem long under the snack/beer tent and plenty of entertainment while you wait.

  • Definitely got your moneys worth

    Overall experience wasn't terrible, but could have been better. A couple that was ahead of our small group got the most enjoyment, but ruined the "spook" and creepy" aspect of it that we all wanted. The props were interesting and had the smells and sites matched perfectly. Total wait time was about 20-25 minutes, and the attraction felt like it was about 30-40 minutes itself. There were a lot of dead points that could have had more activity also.

  • Best on long island

    This was the best one I have been to on long island. Have been to many of the haunted houses around here. But this one was the best,at probably 25 minutes from entry to exit. The actors were committed to the work, they put full effort into scaring. The environment and decor of are top notch, to the point even some rooms actually smell horrible to match the props.this is a must experience.
