I was the leader of two other people and I literally couldn't see a thing. I ran into a wall at one point and said "I don't know where I'm at" and the person said "me neither" which isn't very fun when you're scared of the dark. I was scared, yes, but it was just way too dark.

I absolutely loved this walk through. These guys really know how to scare and decorate perfectly for the scary experience. I can't say enough about the guy at the front desk...he scared me before the walk started. It was awesome!!

I went with my friend, just the 2 of us and we screamed more than a few times and ran part of the way through! It's not very long but like I said we ran through some of it. There are not many "scenes" which was kind of disappointing, but still scary. Very tight turns, and not wide hallways (no... More

I took my 12 and 13 year old daughters and we all thought it was lame and it would have been more fun if we could have taken our time and looked at the scenes and props as we walked through but everytime we stopped they started yelling at us to hurry up and just kept rushing us, my house... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the Nightmare Mansion! Appropriately frightening for pre teens and young teens. Lots of dark tight corners, scary images, spooky noises, and gory bloody mannequins. I'm confident that the screaming by the 3 10 & 11 year olds that I accompanied woke up the dead in Norfolk. They had a great time.

The haunted house was worth the $9 we paid. We were a little weary at first, but it was worth the thrill!!!

This is a fun and inexpensive, year-round, haunted house. It's a creepy maze with crazy scary wax figures placed throughout the house that make your heart skip a beat when you see them. Depending on how fast you walk will determine how quick you get through it, but it's definitely worth the time & money for a good, fun scare.

My best friend and I went here and we couldn't help but laugh the whole way through. The people working here heard us say each other name so the entire time they said our names in evil voices trying to scare us. Kinda short also.

Thank Sheliadm
