The relaxed atmosphere and the brevity of the tour makes it a great place for anyone who is uncertain about the haunting experience and is certainly appropriate for children.
The actors seem able to adjust to the needs of any guest. The tour includes an outdoor walk through the garden, which requires you to step cautiously. It does end with the traditional chainsaw chase, but if you walk past him, he won’t chase you. (Reviewed by Janet Mitchell)
