My partner who is all about Halloween and the scary haunts did a search for places for us to go this year, and Heartstoppers was highly rated so we decided to come check you out. Our first time here, but certainly NOT the last. Such attention to detail was put into the lobby and all the decorations, you really felt like you were in a different time and place. Loved the cast member that came bursting out about 5 minutes before the doors opened. She kept her energy up the e... ntire time we were there and loved how she... read more

OMG it was amazing. The last one aka the Tomb of Shadows really got me b/c it was pitch black & you haas to feel around to see where your going. Sooooo much fun and it wasn't over the top crazy scary, but still good. 😀

My first time at this haunt . Atmosphere gets A plus ! As soon as u walk in building it feels like Halloween ! Decor was great ! The actors really got into character. Everyone was fun and friendly . I can't vouch for scare factor cause haunted houses don't scare me but costumes and props were outstanding . Hands down the winner of the night goes to Malice in Underland ! Loved it ! A must stop for Halloween !!

Holy crap I need to sign a five page waiver to get my kid on a pony ride but here you hand over your cash and walk in. Not sure how they can do this without the lawyers shutting them down but get there before they do. 5 different haunts that are each worth the price of admission on their own. The actors were all amazing! Super scary, creepy and well done! From a parent perspective I would recommend that kids be at least 10 and brave ones at that. Beyond that if you have a good ticker and want... read more

I had an amazing time when I went with my brother. The actors were amazing I had a favorite in particular he was outside and his make-up was skeleton like and very silent and creepy which was a very great twist. The props were very detailed and very fun to look at as well. The timing for the actors were perfect so I'm guessing they were trained well. All of the haunts were amazing and my favorite would have been the Asylum.

I'm scoring this compared to local haunts, not based on my experience at the theme parks. Went last night and had a great time. Thought the walk around characters were fantastic. The Sideshow maze was a bit short. The Tomb of Shadows is my favorite blackout maze for the year so far, including at the theme parks. The mix of pitch black, stuff on the walls, fabric in your way, and flashes of light with some good characters really was a step up from anything I've ever seen.... Awesome. Deadlands will always be my favorite, especially the spider room. The... read more

Great haunted house, great talent, sets, and really creepy ambiance! I see alot of complaints here about lines, which is kind of a B.S. thing to rate a haunted house or really any amusement park by. When you go to disneyland, or sunsplash, or anything like that, do you rate it by the quality of the lines? No! You rate it by the quality of the attractions! Besides, it's you're own fault if you get to a place 2 hours after it opens and have to wait in a long line. If you get to heartstoppers early, like we did,... read more

Heartstoppers is always my favorite haunted house. The downtown location was not the greatest but they made it work. Thanks again for another scary year.

So much fun!! You might not expect much since it is at the abandoned downtown plaza, but it's actually great! Costumes are great as well as the acting. Each one of the four stops scared us in one way or another! Check them out while they are here!

Heart stoppers is my absolute favorite haunted house to go to. Specifically for the tomb of Shadows. It's completely pitch black and you get lost very easily. It doesn't need actors to scare you, your mind does the job which I think is way more scary. Tickets are reasonably priced! Worth the trip.

Great haunted house, even for me who is scared of the dark.  There are 4 different ones to experience and some general ambiance. They have an awesome feature that you can get pictures taken all dressed up with friends/family, for an additional fee. It's scary and the actors are really into it and want to make it worth the money you spend.

Hands down the best / scariest haunted house experience I have ever had. I'm one for horror movies and this place definitely got my heart racing. All the actors are on point too! I never saw anyone break character.

Highly recommend experiencing this brilliant set up before Halloween is over! A special treat you won't want to miss .

Wow!!! This is an incredible haunt! A perfect blend of good scares and artistic theming. This features several haunts...2 themed ones, an underground "dark" haunt and an outdoor one. The creaters went all out with theming leaving no stone unturned. The underground haunt had a beautifully created cave that really transports youand I must admit, this one was amazingly unerving...very creepy! .  As a former haunter, I know what this kind of work entails and these folks have really outdone themselves. Lots of special effects, both projection and animatronics, not to mention excellent actors whoreally were into their characters. I... read more

Awesome!!  Visited the other so called best haunted houses in the area and was not sure I would ever find a haunted house that was worth the money.  But Heartstoppers was well worth the price of admission!  Great props, awesome scares and enthusiastic actors make this haunted house a must see for all of you haunted house lovers. You can even get your picture taken with "real" ghosts. Don't waste your time with Slipknots, that was just lame!  Loved going down into the basement which is creepy by itself. Don't miss this one!

Fantastic! I'm old, so I remember a brief period in time when this place was the "Mine Shaft" and had a mini-golf course in the basement. Some of the old miner décor is still visible, only adding to the creeping ghostly charm!  

-Tickets, 20 bucks plus a dollar each charge for using debit instead of cash. Total for 2 people 42.00, steep but when you see how well everything is done you'll be surprised you didn't pay more.

There are 4 "Haunts", one upstairs, 2 in the basement and one (my favorite) outside. They all had different themes: The Deadlands, Dr... read more

Let me tell you this was an awesome set of haunted houses! This by far was the best for 2012 in the area. They did a great job with their scares- some of their stuff looked like it was straight from a Saw movie. It was really fun being back in the Mine Shaft having mini-golfed there when I was little, I thought that was the coolest place ever. The haunted house that was down in the caves was such a great idea. their stuff was truly really scary. It was AWESOME! I hope they do it again for 2013... read more

Old West themed Haunted House. I came for the zombie clown hookers and zombie clown hookers is what I got.

There are 4 different houses all included for $20..$30 if you want to go in fast pass lanes (if you come early the lines really aren't that bad though.)  It is pretty scary! Lots of jumps and very creative rooms with lots of ideas.

For the value and time spent actually in the haunted houses (30-40 minutes) it is definitely recommended! Check it out!

Took my kids ages 8-12 for their first time.  The costumes/make-up and characters were awesome.  The kids loved the scary carnival games in between going to the four different haunted tours. We are definitely going to make this an annual excursion!

This haunted house was impressive as always. There were four haunted houses and the first one we waited in line for took almost an hour and a half. After that one we went to the ticket booth and asked to pay the upgrade fee to vip. They were extremely accommodating and allowed us to upgrade without hassle. We finished the other three in an hour and had a blast. Words of wisdom are just pay the extra ten dollars a ticket because it's well worth it. 🙂

2nd year back and just as fun as last year, hands down best haunt in the area, get there early and lines are not terrible. The new Malice in Underland was far superior to Bayou last year. If you are expecting Universal Horror nights you should go to Hollywood, if you are looking for a fun night out and a great time go to Heartstoppers...

Great time! Took two teenage girls who really loved it! The Tombs of Shadows was too much for one of them, its claustrophobic to say the least. Malice in Wonderland was very cool with elaborate costumes that were very detailed. The decor is fun, festive, and spooky! Tons of photo opportunities with props or actors that are walking around! Refreshments sold inside (water, sarsaparilla, root-beer, etc) Bathrooms inside and out. Parking wasn't bad, felt far but the walk was easy.

I honestly didn't know what to expect when I first stepped into the haunted house.

I was blown away. The setup and attention to detail and quality of props and use of lights/projections was on point.

The courses were rad, and spooky.

But one of them (not going to say which cause I don't wanna give anything away) one of them, was flat out terrifying.

Thanks for the terror. Great place

Best Haunted House for the value. 4 Haunted Houses for $20! AWESOME! Malice was our favorite. Everything was great.  The characters and decorations were very well done. Everyone was really accommodating as well for little ones.
