The guide was superb!
It was a great experience. We had a group of eight people and everyone wants to come back!
The location is fascinating. Architecture, history and the opportunity to see and explore old buildings is something we love to do.
The tour was EXTREMELY informative and entertaining. Our guides were really great and friendly. We WILL be recommending this to our friends and will mire than likely do this again...especially the Halloween activities.
Had a great time and the stories were awesome
Nice for ghost lovers! Would have liked to see more of the jail.
The tour was awesome. Our guide, Keith, was very informative. He gave a perfect mix of history and his own experiences. Will definitely be coming back!!!
Keith did a great job telling Stories about each area. It was very interesting to hear the stories and have put on experiences during the walk. I thought Keith did a great job connecting us with the experience.
Our guide, Keith, was so knowledgeable and had us interacting within the tour. He talked like the spirits he had talked to were his friends. He was very real and didn't try to be dramatic like is seen on tv. It kept the experience real, and that was what made it awesome. We had such a good time, we didn't want to leave. We will definitely be back!!!
Our tour guide was excellent and gave us many personal ghost stories of his own! He also included a lot of history into the tour which was also very interesting! Will definitely be coming back!
Great time! Fantastic way to see a piece on Ohio history. There will for sure be a return visit in my future.
I chose somewhat satisfied, even though I really was VERY satisfied. I wanted to be able to let you know what I thought. whether it helps, not sure. Checking in, was very casual. no head count, no tickets, no wrist bands. people could easily have more people join them without anyone asking. just saying. maybe you have a secret way of knowing. if so, ignore this. other than that. you need a kiosk selling water or lemonade. you could make a lot of additional funds this way. the vending machine was sold out. but it was so hot, I would have paid even 3.00 for a bottled water! the woman guide we had was wonderful. the building, fascinatingly creepy, the stories of the history along with the spirits were educational and entertaining. the building is so very beautiful. thank you for preserving it. ok, I was very satisfied. thanks for a wonderful evening!!
the only negative thing I have to say is that don't put the online tv shows down - they probably are getting their info from interviews with their hosts before they do their shows, so if they get something wrong, maybe not their fault. Also, they may be one reason why people will come to see the prison. Also, maybe the guides could say more about the movies made there - which ones and what part of the prison was used. I did really enjoy the tour - Keith was great. I would come back again.
I thought the tour was very good, and I really enjoyed it. The guides were excellent, and I loved hearing about the history of it. "Shawshank Redemption" is one of my favorite movies, and it was so cool to see where the movie took place. I thoroughly enjoyed this ghost walk and would recommend it to anyone.
The tour guide was awesome. I loved the stories he had to tell. We will definitely be back for another tour
It was fun! Not sure it was really a ghost walk but it was both informative and entertaining.
Informative, great guide, good variety in the gift shop. I would have liked a bit more time to speak to spirits myself and learn who all was there but it was great anyway.
The tour was informative, fun, and spooky!
Too large of group
Our guide was so interesting sharing stories and answering questions. I believe his name was Ron. I want to come walk and do the day tour and come at night and explore it on my own
The guide was wonderful but the tour was too fast. We did not get to see as much as I would have liked, and the group was too large.
From the check in to the ending I was extremely thrilled with my experience! Our guide was very knowledgeable and very informative about hers and others experiences. I would highly recommend this experience for anyone! A bit disappointed that we could not get a glimpse of the original electric chair
Great place, great tour! Will definitely be back!
Tough to get too critical as it was an amazing experience. Just thought it would have been more ghost related. But trust me not disapointed at all
The tour was well organized. The guide was very knowledgeable. I was glad there were seats in different places so I could sit, I had knee surgery earlier this year. I thoroughly enjoyed it and may return.
Our guide did a good job of sharing the reformatories history (very impressive) with information about spirits that have been seen and felt in different parts of the facility. It is pretty darned believable that someone dead is still moving about the place! Wow, and I'm sure glad I wasn't a "resident" there back in the day!
I found the Reformatory to be most interesting. Not just for the paranormal experience but the historical side was amazing. I am telling all my friends they should go for a visit and take a tour. Keith our guide that evening was amazing. He was very informative and attentive to his guests.
Our guide was very knowledgeable and he shared some great historical and paranormal information.
The guide has great. She new alot about the history and made sure we spend time in the rooms for pictures. We will definitely be back for a day walk
Our guide Sidney was very knowledgeable. The entire building is just amazing to see!
Just felt a little rushed through the tour
We loved it there, it's been 2 days and we are still talking about the building and the experience. I am already trying to figure out a way to schedule a ghost hunt.. Amazing building, and the guides were very knowledgeable.. very impressive!
