2017 Terror At Skellington Manor Review

Terror At Skellington Manor

Visibility / Location:

There was plenty of signage on the front and sides of the building. Google Maps will take you right there. There are parking lots and street parking all around. We had no problem finding a close spot.

Wait Entertainment:

There wasn't much of a wait when we got there but there was plenty to see. There were several actors that I didn't see coming. The most memorable was the huge creature who I assumed was fake at first and the usher who I never suspected. I loved standing in line and watching the actors scare the people who were walking in. The building was beautiful and I could see the amount of time and effort that went into this event from the moment I walked in.

Crowd Control:

Crowd control was excellent. We didn't see or hear any other groups.


Terror at Skellington Manor made my list of all time favorites. It is very clear that a lot of time and effort went into this attraction.

There was so much to see. I feel like I could have gone through several times in a row and still not see it all and not be bored. There were a lot of animatronics and really cool looking holograms. The barber shop client was having a really bad day. The barber was real the client was not so I thought it was going to just be gory but there was an added surprise that made that room one of my favorites. There was a balcony room full of hooded figures. It was impossible to tell who was real and who was fake until it was too late. There was a whole hallway that shook and moved. It was completely unexpected but so cool. All of the rooms were so elaborate, the actors were amazing and the costumes were top notch. A girl came running at us at one point but she was doing the backbend and running on all fours. It was insane! At one point we were walking down the stairs and we saw a clown scampering across the floor and into the next room. We knew he was somewhere in there but weren't sure where to expect to see him so that was fun. The old staircases were beautiful. There was a lot of going up and down stairs. There were lockers that shook and rattled as you walked by them. I could go on and on but I don't want to give too much away. Just when you think it's over there are a couple extra surprises outside. The actors got the biggest scream out of one of the members of my group in the parking lot at the very end. It was awesome from start to finish. I highly recommend this one! I had such a good time. I wish I could have spent all day in there!
