  • What a great tour of a very historic facility. Definitely on the “eerie “ side of things but I appreciated the guides also stressed many of the historic importances. Everyone was no nice and helpful. ...  more »
  • This was at night and headlamps are a must. Second floor carpets stick up a little and should be adhered to the floor to prevent trips.  more »

  • Really great, would get committed again. I went here for Halloween and had a blast. Really great time. I feel like when I went there wasn't enough going on, as some spots seemed somewhat dull. Though this may have changed since I have last went. I am also pretty avid about haunted attractions so I am generally not super enthralled with them the same as others would but that is just my opinion. Over all I had a great time here and would recommend it to those who enjoy those kind of attractions. Otherwise I can't tell you much about the other things they offer here.
  • I love this place! They have flashlight tours all yr round and they're only $10 a PC for them and they're worth the money and the short wait! If u want to go through their haunted house at Halloween time & do zombie Lazer tag, then come early as they'll let ya! We wanted to do all the activities but we came later so there wasn't enough time for us to do them all!
