Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Superb setup

    The setup and the location on the whole were superb. It gave us the taste of the terror that is awaiting us. The props were scary and the animatronics captivating. The actors were having a lot of fun and it was like an endless saga. You shouldn’t miss this.

  • Email Verified Family friendly

    A family friendly haunt which is loads of fun and scare. We got to know about it from our neighbors. Checked it out and it was a great experience. Was able to get in after a long wait in the line. It was not at all disappointing. It was a beautiful house that is been converted into a horror house. There were several rooms that had good surprises. So much fun!

  • Email Verified Outstanding

    Just outstanding and amazing. The rooms were full of scares and we screamed a lot. Each scene was different and the actors being the mainstay of all the scares. Perfect lighting and sounds. There would be silence in a lot of places only to be broken by a sudden loud noise. Had a good time.

  • Astounding!!

    This was an amazing experience for the whole family. The prices were reasonable and we were informed that it goes to charity and that was awesome. Great mix of terror and fun. We got chased till our car by the chainsaw characters. It is a great place to come and enjoy with the family.

  • Email Verified Maze Very Terrifying

    I with my two cousins went to Gilbert House of Terror. The most unique thing I saw there was that the actors won’t touch you. The haunted maze was very terrifying. I haven’t seen creepy characters like this in any other haunt. The chainsaws were really frightening. One of the chainsaw guy even chased us around the house. It was really fun to run screaming our lungs out. There was lots of unexpected scares at every corner of the house. Props and decorations were spot-on too. The tickets were not pricey. Definitely I recommend this house to anyone who loves to get scared.

  • Good place for family fun

    Gilbert House has changed a lot since my past visits. As for most visitors, my favourite also was the Maze Trail. It was a pretty spooky trail with hidden scares and actors. The chainsaw guy is nothing new and is commonplace in most haunts. But this one had an added scare factor that made my niece jump and scream. Definitely the actors deserve 5 stars. The staff were cooperative. Overall, a good place to have some family fun this Halloween. Check it out.

  • Email Verified Never got any scares

    Was not worth the money. We never got any scares or even a surprise. Lots of chainsaw men and we got tired of them. Other than running around, screaming and shouting the actors did not know how to scare. The walkthrough was short for the money we paid. Will give this place a miss next year.

  • Email Verified Love this haunt

    This was the first haunt I ever went to back in 2009. It has only gotten better each time I've been back. I brought my little brother this year for his first haunted house experience and he loved it too! There are so many actors working, they just constantly scare you! The scenes are inventive, and I like the wide open parts where they chase you too. Overall this is a really fun haunt and not too overwhelming for the preteen crowd either.

  • Email Verified Enjoyed being scared

    I can easily say that Gilbert House is the best haunted place in town with the best bunch of volunteers. The best part of my life spent with the ghosts. Yes, scary and entertaining. Props were well done and all played their part absolutely well. The animatronics was great too, except that the timing on few of them were a bit off. The place was crowded but still we enjoyed being scared.

  • Scariest

    A well set up house for people to get haunted and scared and still be entertained. Gilbert House of Terror offered a different experience for my Halloween fun. The most frightful and fun filled experience. The best thing I enjoyed is that they do not touch us and a percent of the dollars earned goes off to charity. Truly, a beautifully designed haunted maze!

  • Email Verified Good scares and challenges

    Gilbert House has some good scares and challenges. My pick is the trail through the corn maze. The scary characters would jump out and scare you when you least expect it. It also had some scary animatronics and sets. The chainsaw guy made my GF scream. The people who had designed this haunted house deserve special mention. Ticket prices were reasonable. We will be back again.

  • Crazy fun

    It was one of our unforgettable experiences and it’s going to be etched in memory for long, as that was the kind of crazy fun we had at Gilbert's. Took our breath away by the time we completed the haunts. The guide was a very cheerful person and kept us engaged throughout. Also, we did not miss any of the scares. You wouldn’t get a better experience elsewhere.

  • Don't expect great scares

    It wasn’t as creepy as it was made out to be. I and wife visited the Gilbert House of Terror and it was a bit of a disappointment. There weren’t any good scares either. I saw her smiling at seeing an actor screaming at her. Not worth the ticket price we pay. Avoidable.

  • Scenes were inventive and thrilling

    It’s the ultimate haven for thrill seekers. Very quaintly old fashioned guided haunt, this place houses over 13 spooky haunts that was incredibly scary. If you are looking for something different this is the place. Actors enjoy what they do and the scenes were inventive and they chase us into wide open parts which was thrilling. The scenes were very well planned and executed. It had us jumping quite a few times. The staff was great; they were generous and caring guys. To top it all they had a tour guide allotted to each group who took care that we go through each scare in the whole event. It was more than expected. Will be back next year.

  • Will really spook you out

    I with my family went to the Gilbert House of Terror and we had a great time there. The actors, props as well as the characters were spot-on. The Corn Maze Trail was pretty scary. Walking through the twists and turns of the corn maze in the dark could really spook you out. The creepy characters could jump before you any time. At couple of instances, my wife screamed her gut out. The man with the chainsaws was very terrifying. He even chased us out the house and in the field outside. The actors all did a great job. I will give 10/10 to this house. Recommend this!

  • Email Verified Definitely love to return

    If any one of you are planning a visit to a haunted house, then I must say this is it. The Gilbert House of Terror scares the crap out of you and you are actually enjoying getting scared every minute you spend in this house. The actors looked awesome and we could hear the screams all around. I would definitely love to return and be their guest next year.
