I really liked this place a lot! I thought it was very interesting, and fun! The wax figures looked so real, it had me a little scared at times even as a grown adult. I think it's a fun and great place to check out sometime if your in the lake george area. I went in with my little cousins, the one was not afraid but the other was scared as could be. I think it may be a little too scary for some kids... overall I really enjoyed it, and would love to check it out again sometime.
I remember going here as a kid back in the 80's (our family has a cottage on the other side of the Lake) and I was scarred out of my wits. This summer (2009) I brought MY children (Ages 7 and 10) to the House of Frankenstein and let me tell you... They thought it was AWESOME! Very scary! As an adult, you have to appreciate it for what it is. If you go in and allow yourself to get caught up in the moment, you will have A LOT of fun! For those who say "It was not worth the 15 minutes"... I disagree! When we went in July, Frankenstein HIMSELF was outside so we were able to have some cool photo op's for my Lake George scrap book as well. It's true, this place has been around since the 70's and it hasn't changed. I think that's what make it so cool, and it's why House of Frankenstein will always hold a place in my heart. We will definately go back! This place is a timeless classic!
I waited 17 years to see this and today I finally got my wish (I was in Lake George alone). That said, I thought this was a good experience for me, not exceptional but pretty good. Some stunts were awesome, my favorites included the Dracula transformation and the werewolf stunt. Some were dissappointing but the good outweighs the bad. I wouldn't recommend it for children under 10 as there are some bloody stunts (the most graphic is a heart removal from druids). Also included are two movie monsters Freddy Krueger and the Predator. One stunt has a nod to the haunted mansion from Disneyland. It was well worth the price of 8.99 and I might want to to enter again. One last thing, rumor has it that a ghost haunts one of the halls. The guide didn't believe it but it might be true to some.
price not too bad but could of been cheaper. probably the best part was the end walking through the black hole. the rest of it was ok. alright for passing time but not anything special..wouldnt go back
Pros: Price is fairly cheap, Allowed to walk around by lonesome, cool information, some cool effects (nothing brilliant though)
Cons: Sometimes lame displays, no tour guide (which would be cool only if you were also allowed to explore by yourself
This is a good way to spend a half an hour or so. My mom and I went slow purposely and it still only took about a half an hour. It is definitely a cool spot to visit when walking through town though.
If you don't go expecting anything amazing, it is certainly a fun way to spend some time. Half of it's charm is the sheer camp value of it all. I've been going there since i was a kid, and its something to look foward to when visiting Lake George
