So we were in the courtyard and we got a ticket for a dollar off the admission, we saw it the night before but were too busy to stop. I really like the image of the witch outside... read more

Well I wasn't sure what to expect and I'm glad I didn't expect much. The lobby is fantastic and creepy, but that is about it. I think we were done in under 3 minutes and it wasn't scary at all. Maybe it is because it is the summer and not peak scare season. Won't know because we will not be... More

We visited on a Tuesday in April so there was little wait or crowds which allowed us some one on one time with the owner. He was very friendly and talkative and just added to the experience. As for the haunted house itself it did not disappoint. It took about 5 minutes to go through it and it did a... More

Skip this one; awful, rude staff that will literally SHOVE you out of line and into the attraction and then talk to you like you're an idiot (funny how people who can't follow fire code think their CUSTOMERS are the dumb ones), INCREDIBLY SHORT walk-through with no real scares besides some teenagers making growling noises. Totally unsafe, overcrowding due to... More

I went to this attraction after reading a positive review in a local newspaper. It definitely isn’t worth $9.00 a person and only takes approximately 6 minutes to walk through. Most of the scares come from props rather than real actors.

Salems, Witch Mansion is a terrifyingly terrific time! I was able to choose the level of fright! No other haunted house has that! I chose ten of course! I really enjoyed it and i hope you would check it out for a thrilling adventure! Dont miss this one! Salems only real haunted house!

So we were in the courtyard and we got a ticket for a dollar off the admission, we saw it the night before but were too busy to stop. I really like the image of the witch outside with the fire in her eyes. The haunted house is not that big and takes about 5 to 6 minutes to walk... More

I was more than a bit weary about it when I noticed it was not an actual house...but when I walked in right as a group of twenty-somethings came bolting back out the entrance from the first scare I knew I was in for a treat. So, I dropped my $8 at the door with the pretty girl working the... More

My husband and I went in October when we travelled here. It was creepy looking from the outside looking into the place but when we went through only lasted about 5 or 6 min and was just your typical haunted house, Did give me a few jumps when the person would just out or come behind you and holler but...

So after asking the man out front how long it takes he said 8-10 minutes. He told us he walked thru another haunted house down the street and it was only 2 minutes. I think he was confused with his employer...we went in at a level 8 (I'm not sure how because the woman didn't tell anyone what level was... More

We visited this place the 31st of October to make our overall Salem experience. To be honest it is not worth. It is very short considering the cost of the ticket. It is not worth the time and not shary at all. My kids did not enjoy it either.
