Is Turbidite Manor™ scary?

Yes, Turbidite Manor™ is scary, but not in a horror-cliché kind of way. Turbidite Manor™ pulls from actual paranormal research and focuses on the ethereal, rather than shock techniques exclusively. While some visuals within the attraction may be disturbing, the scariest things of all are those which are... unseen.

Will people jump out and grab me?

Turbidite Manor™ is a high-tech facility with sensitive ghost-monitoring systems (Ghostwatch). At no time should anyone jump out from a dark corner and 'grab' you... this could disrupt the entire system.  There have been known to be some 'glitches' from time to time with the containment fields, so we cannot guarantee that you won't be startled by an ominous presence.

Is Turbidite Manor™ wheelchair accessible?


How long will it take me to tour the attraction?

Once inside the Gallery (the front of the house), your tour should take approximately 15-20 minutes... provided the spirits don't "persuade" you to stay...
