  • Email Verified Outstanding Haunt

    This haunt has been around for several years, and I've been several times, including 2017. It follows the tradition of walking through a maze of sets in the woods, where actors scare or intimidate you. Some sets are just outstanding, often imitating classic movies (Halloween, Puppetmaster, The Ring) with superb detail and realism. Some years express themes, but the event is similar each year in this regard. This event is 99% outside, and rarely cancels. So if it's cold, or misty rain, dress accordingly. This is a very scary haunt. Not for the feint of heart! The event sells timed tickets in advance, that will guarantee you a ticket, but not a short line. Expect to wait 20 minutes or so before getting in. The good news is that the wait in line is surrounded some by sets and actors, which make the time pass. It takes us about 45 minutes to get through it, including a "midway" I'm the middle where you get a chance to catch your breath. This also allows staff to stagger visitors, so everyone doesn't bunch up. Finally, there's a questionnaire at the end if you want to give feedback.

  • best scare around

    i have been going to this haunted attraction for the last 5-6 years. it is always different and gives you the scare of a lifetime. If you have not been here, give it a try this year. You won't be disappointed. the terror starts as you are waiting in line and can end when you are in the parking lot walking to you car. this happened last year, thinking we were safe, in the lot, I see something in the corner of my eye and when i turned to look, there stood Michael Meyers, with axe in hand. he chased us to the car, where we jumped in, locked the doors and he stood with his face pressed against the window. expect the unexpected here. can't wait for the 2015 season.

    Not like most haunts, very intense when you walk threw you don't know when people are going to pop up or come out. You walk into so many different scenes like your going threw movies so much fun!
