The statues are awesome – I mean, really, really well done. And the variety and scale of horror history covered is thorough. On the downsides, the place is pitch black which scared the kids (and made for a lot of collisions) and the main concern...More

For the most part, haunted attractions like these in Salem are very, very short. They do make the best of what they can being in a space that is the size of your average Claires store in any mall. It's definitely one of the better...More

We visited the Nightmare Factory on 10/29/12 and can honestly describe it as a TOTAL waste of time. If getting frightened is in your repertoire of fun things to do while in Salem (and mine is), then do not walk, but RUN away from this...More

Awesome attraction! Takes about 15 minutes to go through. Price is right ( do the grave hopper pass). Rivals a lot of larger haunted attractions I have been to.

We were looking for something quick and fun to do while we awaited our scheduled evening tour. The kids (boys aged 10 and 7) were looking for a good scare, so we decided to check this out. It wasn't cheap (22 bucks for the 3...More

This was the scariest haunted house I've ever been in! People and things popping out from all directions, and sometimes you even had to push by creepy things to keep going! The guys working there were so talented at terrifying people!
