Avoid Terror Behind Walls

The haunted prison was not scary at all. The actors for the most part were behind bars or standing within plain sight and they are not allowed to touch you. Also it was so crowded that anything that might have been scary was not because you saw it happen to the people in front of you. The only reason I gave it 2 stars instead of zero is the 3-d part was kind of cool. For $30 I expect a really great show, this was very disappointing. I would not go back even for $10. I have been to the prison during the day and seeing the actual cells and reading the history is way more interesting and scary than the ""haunted"" prison at night go during the day if you want to see this place.



Go to Jail

Go to jail, directly to jail. Walk through the jail, and sometimes view an interesting art installation. It really is a fascinating place.
