Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Perfect horror with nasty prisoners

    Perfect place to get a blend of fun, horror and unexpected entertainment. Awesome experience. I don’t remember how many times I got scared and screamed seeing the nasty prisoners. The City of the Dead felt like we were in real hell. I haven't seen any haunt with so many actors! Keep it up guys!

  • Email Verified Terrible

    Terrible!!! Firstly, the long lines make it boring even though they try to entertain you while in queues. Secondly it’s too overcrowded inside the house. Some of the actors are so nasty, they even blow on you face and it’s really disgusting. Not worth the money, time.

  • Damn scaring prison

    It’s a damn scaring place we had a blast here! Full of scaring stuffs inside the house, especially the guy in the dog cage. Got the fast pass tickets to explore both attractions and I’ll rate haunted prison the best as it was very unique backed with special effects. Looking forward to the same in the next year.

  • Over rated haunt

    Over rated haunt. Literally walked through the whole thing just to see some arrogant actors screaming loud and breathing in your face. They are charging $30 while it’s only $15 worth. Refund please.

  • Email Verified Excellent, worth the trip forsure!!!!

    15 of us traveled from Minnesota to check this out, we were not disappointed!!! It was amazing!! Actors (makeup & costumes) were outstanding, it was hard to tell the difference at times between props & real as the props were as creepy & lifelike as the actors. The scare factor was intense! We got a "behind the scenes" tour which we all loved...Statesville haunted prison was hands down the best haunt we've went to in the last 5 years (we've been to many), it's going to be hard to top this & choosing our out of town haunt next year is going to be difficult!! Everyone should visit this place!!! Thank you...OUTSTANDING!!!!

  • Email Verified True taste of horror

    I screamed a hell lot times. Perfect place to get a true taste of horror. Amazing actors, especially the butcher guy. Excellent design of sets portrayed the true picture of mine shafts and frequent encounters with zombies were so much fun. I never left my boyfriend till we were out of the house. Worth spending money and time.

  • New themes every year

    Scintillating performance by actors. My kids really enjoyed at this place and we are visiting for last two years. They always bring new themes on the board. This year pricing was a bit high tough. Highly recommended.

  • Email Verified Intense scary attraction

    Great place to have horrors’ type of fun. Full of intense scary attractions and incredible actors who performed an awesome task in frightening all of us like anything. Substantial special effects and animatronics to create heart impounding feelings. Worth spending $$ and time.

  • Email Verified Very disappointing

    Traveled around two hours to reach here. Got the VIP ticket and hence expected to enter the haunt without much waiting. Noticed the general tickets line and it’s ridiculous. For VIP tickets there is another line. Inside the haunted house also you are in a line and you could easily see what is going to come out. So there is nothing to scare about. Very disappointing.

  • Statesville Haunted Prison

    Went to statesville the other night and was not that impressed. It was pouring rain when we went, so not a lot of people came out. The lines weren’t that long and I thought the people in line were scarier than in the actual haunted house. The decorations and set up was awesome, almost as good or better than you would see in Hollywood. But, they push you through the haunted house so fast, it’s hard to take it in and have fun. They don’t send you in with your individual group, so you’re going with a big group of people and the actors scare the people in front, but the people behind them already see the actor, so that’s kind of ruins the fun of it. I also think they could hide the actors a little more, they were just kind of out in the open and not popping out scaring people. I also was expecting more from the clown room. Again, the set up and decorations were AMAZING, but there weren’t a lot of clowns when we went through. I always get SO scared at haunted house, but I walked through maybe only screaming once or twice. Overall, it wasn’t that bad, but I defiantly would not pay $60 to go back. Also, huge S/O to the actors scaring people in line keeping them entertained. You guys are awesome.

  • Email Verified Hair raising! In your face! Horror

    This by far is one of the best haunted houses in the Midwest. Zombie Army puts together one of the best in your face, fear grabbing shows. From start to finish the crazy train doesn’t stop. The outside entertainment is top notch and has you looking every five seconds to see what gruesome, macabre, awesome character is behind you ready to scare you especially Fluffy. This haunted house is a must to visit every October.

  • Email Verified Amazing!

    I went on October 14 at 9:30ish. First of all, the lines weren’t that bad. Sure I waited at least 30-40 min, but god damn the entertainers were fantastic! They weee dancing and interacting w people! They made time go by fast. Other than that, the haunt itself was fantastic too. Props, makeup, scenery. It legit made me feel like a prisoner. Man I LOVE THIS PLACE! Hopefully one day I get to see behind the scenes. I’ve been to statesville 3x so far this year. And I get a different experience every time.

  • Email Verified Not for faint hearts

    A place not for faint hearts. Full of terror and scary stuffs. Industrious actors draped in scary costumes made us screamed a lot. Thanks to outside vendor snacks store to replenish our energy. General admission ticket was $30; even though we bought 10 tickets for our group they haven’t given any discount. Else I would have rated them five stars.

  • It was ok but over priced

    Went there last night, got there around 7pm. The lines weren't bad. I've heard and read so many great reviews about this place so maybe I expected more. Truth be told, I was not scared at all. The only scare I really had was because I have been deathly afraid of clowns all my life and there is a room full of them but other than that the attraction is too hyped up and not scary at all. I walked through the rest of the rooms like I was walking around Disney World. Also there were too many groups let in at once.
