I think I will have to go during the daytime. Viewing was so limited and we were given those very small flashlights. There was nothing terribly "frightening" about the stories our tour guide told us.
The house is an amazing place but, I felt I...continued

My family & I had fun touring the Winchester Mystery House with just a flashlight in hand & a very knowledgeable tour guide. Although we were disappointed that we didn't see any ghosts, we still had a lot of fun! The mystery maze, which is right...continued

The Flashlight tour is THE way to see the Winchester Mystery House for SURE as an adult.
The Maze was pretty darn cool too.
HIGHLY recommended!

My first visit here- the price was right. It was spooky because it was at night and the flashlights, thunder rain soundtrack along w Halloween decorations added to the ambiance. The guide could have been better, we had a large group and it would...continued

I have wanted to visit the Winchester Mystery House and this Goldstar deal was a good opportunity to go. The tour was fun and I enjoyed the flashlight experience. However, I don't know that I would have gone without the Goldstar pricing as even...continued

Took my daughter and her two friends to Winchester Mystery House Flashlight tours to celebrate her 12th Birthday. The girls had fun following David our tour guide through the mansion. The home was filled with fall decorations and antique...continued

Hit this venue because it has a "haunted" experienced attached to it & since it was the week of Halloween, I expected a scary tour at this famous mansion. Well... that did not happen. I set myself up for failure, as all we got was a historical...continued

Our guide unfortunately did not set the tone from the start of the tour, she didn't tell the history of Sara Winchester, who she was or why she thought she was plagued by ghosts. Young girl, who giggled a lot, so although I found the rooms and...continued

The tour was fun. A good family event for Halloween. Not scary. I agree with other reviews that it would be good to do tour in daylight to better appreciate the historic building. Tour was an 1 hr. Even with gold star pricing I found the event...continued

We went on the first flashlight tour of the evening at 6:30 p.m., which was great because at least our tour group got a little time to ourselves before bumping into the tour groups coming up behind us. The flashlight part was a lot of fun as well,...continued

First time there with family.
Informational and fun. Kids loved the flashlights at night. Worth the cost. We will visit again.

I was hoping it would be somewhat scary but it wasn't. I guess it was literally just a tour at night while you hold a flashlight around. It's probably better during the day in fact since you can see things more clearly, its not scary anyways.

I've been to the Winchester Mystery house many times and always loved it. I'm into the paranormal and having this house on my favorite ghost shows, I was dying to get the opportunity to go in at night. Well, my time finally came and I was so...continued

The tour was about 50 mins long and there was NO MAZE. For the price of the tour I assumed there would be more to it. The tour felt very rushed and and we did not get enough time to get a good look around the mansion. There were tour groups...continued

The Winchester Mystery house was actually very fascinating. I would have liked more information on the house and the history instead of so many ghost stories, but it was still a very neat experience over-all. The maze was fabulous. It took us...continued
