4-D Haunted House & 4-D Adventure (2016)
Salem Time Machine
131 Essex Street
Open Daily from October 7th thru Halloween
You will love the 4-D Haunt, now available in two versions.  The 4-D Haunted House is truly scary. Salem 4-D Adventure is not scary.  Come to their Haunted House if you like the thrill of being scared by live actors who appear out of nowhere, jumping and shouting to loud sounds, animatronics and special effects.  Or, if you do  not want to be scared, or with children, walk through their 4-D Adventure without actors and enjoy the same scenery, animatronics, and special effects, without actors and scares, but with a soundtrack telling the story of Olde Salem from 1650 to 1991.  It is so good, you will want to enjoy both versions.  One is so hauntingly Halloween.  The other tells the story of Salem dressed for Halloween.  Whichever you choose, you will wear their 3-D glasses and walk through ten rooms under black lights, all in 3-D, from the walls and props to the floors.  It is magical!  You will leave saying, "That was great!  How'd they do that?"  Save by purchasing tickets online and avoid the long ticket line.  4-D Haunted House and 4-D Adventure tickets are interchangeable and good for any day and time in October.

Journey through hidden doors and shadowy crypts as you encounter creatures that have haunted mankind’s imagination since the dawn of time. Your worst fears await you….in the dark!

Legend has it that an eccentric collector of the occult and paranormal gathered items from the world’s most haunted houses and brought them here to Witch Mansion. The site became a magnet for the spirit world and a gateway soon opened into the world of the undead. Come see these items on display for yourself before you begin your adventure.

Witch Mansion is the only Haunted House in Salem where “you” pick your own level of fright! That’s right, from “Slight-Fright” to “Full Scream Ahead“…visitors pick their own level of fear from 1 to 10. Whether you’re a Fright-Fiend or the Faint of Heart..we have a level for all ages and preferences. We’re “dying” to meet you!  Witch Mansion, the haunted haunted house that lays all others…to rest!
