Our group loved it. Host was fantastic. Thorough but fast to process and get us started. Great wandering through the pitch black, trying to find your way with plenty of jump-scare moments. Takes about 15-20mins, very much worth it.

My 16 and 14 year old sons did this - I was too scared. The oldest put down his main fear as clowns so of course they got scared by clowns. They were terrified all the way through and a week later still talk about...More

Really expensive for a short walk in dark hallways following a red dot. The guy from the entrance was rude with us and I got an electric shock with one of the walls in the dark hallway, once we got out I asked if that...More

It was the right mix of scary and funny. My wife and I and the 4 teens went through. The actors are really in character and you can tell they enjoy their job. Highly recommend for a memorable experience.
