Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Superb Haunted House

    This Haunted House is really amazing. There is a narrative that is weaved in throughout the different parts that make it enjoyable for adults as well as children. The creativity involved makes it stand out from other haunted house experiences.

  • Scary in a fun way!

    Always creative and amazing. The non-scary Saturday day hours for little kids is perfect. The night time is scary and funny with no gore. Sets are super creative with great attention to detail. The Sweeny-Todd pie ladies were a creepy hoot. Home made treats and games at the end. My grandson and I go every year. We went through twice and it was still cheaper than for-profit haunts.

  • Email Verified Super creative!

    I've attended several of Haunted House events at First Parish. This year yet again they really upped their game. The Mary Shelley - Frankenstein theme was all new. The props were great and all the stations of the 'tour' were very creative and fun!

  • Email Verified Amazing celebration of Mary Shelley!

    More then a walk through. The First and second you are guided though the event each room has its own story. Some funny some scary. The level of detail is amazing the only complaints I have is that you can’t stop and check out the incredible detail of each room. There are jumpscares and cute tips of the hat to Young Frankenstein the Addams Family and the bride of Frankenstein. The elevator ride was worth the price of admission! A twilight zone inspired guide cute yet creepy was the perfect balance for this rated PG haunt. The lower level is a scary walk through that has more stories though less cohesive.

  • Email Verified Haunted house at FP

    Best ever, we remember the first one with the movie in the Sanctuary and now this one. Every space seemed to be used well. We waited a half hour to get in and then it took about a half hour to do the event. Suggestions: it would be nice to reduce the wait. Maybe people could go into the game area and us older folks would be able to sit some. The kids around us were so excited, they needed to run around the smoke machine and jumpoff the stone walls in the memorial garden.

  • Email Verified Outstanding as always!!

    Every year I've gone has been the one I thought of as "the best." There is so much creativity and detail. The actors in each room are both adults and young people, who have memorized short scenes so that the "tour" makes sense with the theme of the year. Every room is covered with intricate quirky findings, ancient and modern and surprising and weird. The kids I brought especially loved the game room which is warm and inviting, and has a Harry Potter theme. Thank you to everyone who makes this so special year after year!

  • Terrifying sets

    I and my nieces visited First Parish.. all the adventures were arranged in a three storage building. The sets were terrifying. My elder niece enjoyed the Menagerie of Monsters the most. She jumped and screamed a few times. For the younger one, the scariest part was at the Mary Shelley. Overall, one of the best haunted house I have been to this year. Suitable for children too. Staff were friendly as well. Scare lovers should check this one out.

  • Email Verified Very creative

    I have been there at First Parish Haunted House with my friends. What I found it’s truly not a good choice for the value for money seekers. As we were all struggling for better career, we fall in same category. They have scary attractions but nothing very creative or innovative, just a time pass place. All the rooms in the haunted house were good; we spent our most of time over there. Food was good still very costly.

  • Spooky fun

    If you are looking for spooky fun and kids friendly haunted house in the town, First Parish Haunted House is the best choice. Luckily, I have been there with my family including two school going kids. Zombies entertained us wonderfully with their innovative way of coming closer then escape randomly. The food court had numerous tasty cuisines. Haunted attractions were spine thrilling. We had a memorable time at First Parish.

  • Email Verified Super Spooky

    Surely super spooky. First Parish haunt is setup in an old historic church fills up the entire three floors. Each floor has its own unique theme and it was different. The actors had a blast scaring us and they so loved the job and the characters they played. We found it very realistic and scary. Walking into tight dark spaces and climbing stairs. It was funny and eerie. We did laugh and scream. Fit for all Halloween enthusiasts.

  • Email Verified Wonderful

    My experience at First Parish Haunted House was not so wonderful as expected. Actors were looking over aged, so that they were not able to perform well. There were only few attractions and scaled down horror activities were not able to engage any of the guests. It was looking like waste of great infrastructure they had. I don’t want to visit this place again.

  • Email Verified Terrifying scary looking characters

    A mind blowing visit it was. The storyline and theme of each attraction were different. Mary Shelley had some scary looking characters. Bedford Alchemist Society was equally terrifying. However, the scariest one was the Menagerie of Monsters. The monsters there would scare the crap out of you. The less intense one was the Thriller. It was my GF’s pick. The visit was really enjoyable. Recommend this!

  • Email Verified Some more intense scares

    If you are a fan of pop music, definitely you will love the thriller. The sets of the thriller were beautifully done. It gave us some nice scares too… The Bedford School of Alchemy was very frightening. The Spectral Lounge had some more intense scares than the Bedford. My favourite was the Menagerie of Monster. The actors’ performance was impressive. The prices were reasonable too. We will be back next year for sure.

  • Email Verified Creative and Theatrical!

    Wow, not your average Haunted House! Had a really great theme going that stayed intact through the whole 30 minute adventure. Costumes were excellent. Not too scary, but definitely had some edgy parts. And of course the Bedford Dungeon in the basement served up the expected startle factor.

  • Email Verified Fun but a loong wait

    Costumes were fabulous, scripts well done, and decorations superb! Anything you can do about the loooong wait, though? Perhaps allow more people (or numbered groups) in the games area while they're waiting? Waiting outside doesn't seem as bad, since you can visually see how long the line is, but the long wait inside the corridor after paying dampened our spirits going in.

  • Bedford Creative Haunt

    This haunted house was really creative with lots of attention to detail. It was really fun as Doc and Marty lead you through time, backwards and forwards! Something for everyone- a bit scary at night with option to go into really creepy basement and then into the warm games and café room.
