We visited family in the area several times a year and we always stopped in to see the changes as they frequently updated & remodeled. I started going as a teenager and on into adulthood, my son grew up loving this place as well, he's a senior in college now. We are just devastated by the news of the total... More

Thank-you so much Sharon, we sincerely appreciate all your support. We are all very relieved to find out that we were originally misinformed and Mysterious Mansion, as well as many other businesses reported gone, were NOT destroyed in the Gatlinburg fire. Business owners have since been granted a day of access to downtown to assess the damage. Sadly there were... More

One of the best haunted houses I've ever been to. So sorry to hear about the fire. Please rebuild. Prayers for you all.

We first were given false information that our building was destroyed, thankfully it did survive and was possibly untouched by the flames. As of right now we still do not have access to the downtown area but hope to be permitted in very soon to assess any damages. We will update information on our Facebook page when we know more....

Stopped at the Mysterious Mansion with friends against my reluctant desires. But after going through I had a great time. I don't care for haunted house's but well worth the money. I would even go through it again. I wll plan to stop back by next trip. Looking forward to the next time.

We bought a Groupon for this place after walking by it during the day. I thought it looked cute, maybe a little kitschy, and thought it would be a fun little place to check out. We came back later the next night and went through with a group consisting of two other couples. Let me tell you... we've gone to... More

We were in Gatlinburg and thought it would be fun to do on Halloween. It was just had a screaming terrified 6 year old in our group. I thought it was terrible that the parents were forcing her through. Id recommend for 12 yrs and up. It was fun for that time of the year.

This was seriously wonderful, scary and so unexpected. Groupon had a good sale for two tickets. If you like scary go to this house, you won't regret it!

This is one of the things we did on our last day in the Gatlinburg area. and normally they open at 11am but when we arrived we were told that some of the cast members had shown and that they wouldn't opening up till 12:30pm. A little disappointed because it would put us behind schedule, it decided to hang around... More
