The Loveland Castle has been haunting the Cincinnati area for over twenty years. The castle wasn’t built to scare but offers a great setting for a haunted house. Traveling down the winding road that leads to the castle builds up some eerie suspense. Once you arrive on the grounds, however, the atmosphere is slightly different than expected. On my short tour I saw a many Halloween characters but never experienced a feeling of terror. A group of random creatures surprise you at random turns to make you jump, but it seems a more campy atmosphere than one of terror.

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)
