We paid a discount of $22 for 4 deal....wow what a waste. The whole thing is really bad artwork and really bad illusions. Spend this cash on something worth it. Personally I'd say this was worth about $2-$3 / person.

My 8 year old thought it was really neat. I thought it was dark and short and not worth the money except for the fact the 8 year old thought it was really neat. On the whole I was glad my husband and 3 year old stayed outside as paying $16 was a lot more reasonable for what we got... More

Very decently priced, interesting but some things are a little spooky. May be a little bit scary for small children. But was still very fun!

2nd worse thing to earthquake ride. Most boring 10 minutes of your life! Rip off of 9.00.walk in the dark trying to see broken down so called illusions. Stay away. Go buy a beer instead.

I read the reviews, I thought this place was quirky. Yeah a little cheesy but I thought it was cute and not very expensive. So much in pigeon forge and Gatlinburg is pricey. So, read the reviews make your own decision, but I really thought it was interesting. Take your time though and read all exhibits.

We figured it wouldn't be the best thing too see but we gave it a shot anyways. There's not much to see, just a few dark hallways with creepy/old looking mannequins behind windows. Don't waste the time or the money

I feel bad for leaving a bad review because the lady working the register was so nice. But this place lures you in with Harry Potter statues and ect, but it's literally just those illusion photos you find on google , printed onto paper and nailed on a wall. And it's too dark in there , the illusions can't even... More

This is possibly the worst way to waste your precious money and time in Gatlinburg. Don't do it even if offered for free. It's too dark to any much of those stupid and uninteresting illusions and you can do the whole thing in about 10 minutes and come out cursing about the rip off! About $10 a person but not... More

I never felt so cheated in my life. Cost my wife and I about 17 dollars to go in and it is worse than useless. You will be far more entertained to google optical illusions on google and save your money. I feel bad for the lady who works there as I'm sure many aren't as easy going as my... More
