  • Do you have an age limit?
    We leave that completely up to our customers, and at parent's discretion. Bring whoever you'd like and we'll scare them all the same. Just remember there are NO REFUNDS for any reason. We do not recommend holding small children while going through our attractions.
  • Are your haunted attractions wheelchair accessible?
    Unfortunately, we are not wheelchair accessible.
  • Are strobe light's, fog, or chainsaw's involved?"
    You better believe it! All the above will be used at some point in time in our attractions during your experience with us. If this becomes too intense for you, there are emergency exits throughout our attractions. Just ask one of our actors to show you the way out.
  • Do the actors touch you?
    We are a TOUCH FREE Haunt. Our actors will NOT TOUCH you, if you DO NOT TOUCH them. However, they do get close to you in our attractions, their costumes and props may brush against you. If for some reason they do touch you, please let us know and we'll take care of the situation.

    This varies from night to night. The later in the haunt season the busier we get. We recommend that you purchase your tickets online to skip the wait line of purchasing tickets on-site.

Don't forget to check out our speed pass option when purchasing tickets if you're worried about waiting in line at the attractions.

    Two of our three haunted attractions are indoor and will always be available even if it rains.
