They have a haunt that is out of this world. I am a Halloween fanatic and have been to MANY haunts in different states. This one is so incredibly unique, immersive and so well done. I felt like I was in a movie. The actors, the settings and the ambiance were on point!! I highly recommend, it will leave you with chills and wondering what just happened.


Incredible haunted house, it made our trip so much fun, and the actors were awesome. Truly scary stuff.
