Will I be scared?
Hopefully, that IS the purpose of a Haunted House! Remember different things frighten different people. What you might find disturbing may be terrifying to others. Our main goal is to entertain!
Can I bring children?
While you can bring children, it is up to the individual parent. We try and present a very realistic environment that may be disturbing for those of an impressionable age. But it will vary with the individual. We have had adults pee their pants and the 8 year old with them want to go through again! Only YOU know what is best for your child.
You said some people actually pee their pants?
Yes, that IS true! We usually have several confirmed "wetters" each weekend. See, our goal IS to entertain!
Can the actors touch you?
No. While the actors are trained not to touch you, the very close proximity or your own fear may result in you accidentally bumping into one of our actors. Of course if you don't behave while in the haunt you're "Open Season!" The "Undead" have been know to rip off an arm or leg, depending on what's closest!
Is the fog or smoke dangerous?
We do not use any chemical fog within the structure of the attraction. We may utilize a fog machine in outdoor areas. It is a glycol based fog that is totally safe and harmless, but does look cool!
Can I bring my cell phone?
Sure you can bring it, but it is best if you turn it off and bury it deep in a pocket during your "stay". Cell phone use is not allowed within the haunt and when scared anything in your hand or easily accessible pocket is usually the first thing that goes!!! There are NO Pokemon characters in the haunts to catch! OUR characters are REAL!!! Anything lost within the haunt will be collected at the evening's end and available at the ticket booth the following night. Good rule, if you don't want to lose it... don't bring it!
Is photography allowed?
Sorry, but no. There are many reasons including the fact that a flash or strobe will temporarily blind our actors. It disrupts the other guest's experience. If you are pausing to take pictures you slow down the line behind you. Besides you walk through our attractions with your hands on the shoulders of the person in front of you, so you will be too busy to take pictures. See the web site, there are cool pictures there (and we already tossed out the ones that were blurry!).
Is this one of those Haunts where the actor jumps out and screams BOO!
That is blasphemy! We pride ourselves in the fact that our job is to transport you into an altered reality. You do not merely walk a hallway and look into a cheesy scene, you walk through and are enveloped to become part of the scene. This is a living (or unliving) themed story that you not only see, but experience. You escape the mundane rigors of your normal life to spend a few minutes in the heightened experience of OUR world! There are black areas within the Haunt because let's face it, our biggest fear is the dark! Oh and by the way, our actors NEVER say BOO! Electroshock Therapy took care of that!
Will I see a jumbled sequence of rooms like aliens, then vampires, then clowns?
Remember I said a THEMED story! The Asylum is just that, a walk through a sanitarium. You may become one of the patients, but you won't find an alien ship next to a vampire right behind the werewolf. Our Hotel Fear may have some strange guests, but sorry no aliens! We try to stay true to the theme, again to immerse you in our altered reality! Our haunts are NATIONALLY recognized attractions, voted one of the Top 13 Haunts in the country!
So will I see Freddy or Leatherface or other movie monsters?
No, while someone like Freddy might be institutionalized, movie monsters have no business in our haunts. Any movie monster is a copyrighted character and should not be used without written permission. We utilize original characters and storylines. This year we have partnered with an independant film maker to create an original horror movie utilizing our attractions. RUST the movie debuts in October of 2016!! So you are not walking into a lame attempted recreation of a movie set... this IS an actual movie set! The RUST characters will appear in Hotel Fear, their "old stomping ground" so once you have experienced RUST, you can actually purchase the movie after its premier!
Is there an R rated Haunted House?
There is no such thing as a rated haunted house, unless you are rating it yourself. Claiming an attraction is R or even X rated is merely a marketing gimmick. Of course if a Haunt says it is X rated and publicizes it has nudity, you might want to ask some questions! Some haunts are more intense due to their design or theme. Ours are more intense. We do not design them for children or even teens. We do not overuse gore. Too many have an attitude that if you can't think of a way to actually scare people, then make it gory. Instead, we scare people!
What are your attractions rated?
Again we do not have "ratings". A reporter went through and told us that... "If other haunts are supposed to be R rated then I would have to rate this XXX! This was REALLY scary!" His words.... not mine! You be the judge.
Is there a Haunted House with 13 floors and you get your money back if you make it through?
That's called an Urban Legend. If one person made it through, he would just tell all his friends the "secret" and the haunt would be out of business! We HAVE to make money or we can't come back next year!
Is there a refund policy?
Our policy is there is NO refund! It is our job to scare you. If you stand in line and get too scared to go in... then we have already done our job - even before you even entered!! If at any time you are too scared to continue, we have done our job! So if we have done our job, there is no reason for a refund! Your ticket is good for ANY night we are opened. If you do not use the ticket tonight come back another night, you ticket is good until our season ends!
Is there a discount for children?
No. We do NOT discriminate! We scare everyone equally!
Are there discounts available?
Yes! We have discount coupons available at our sponsor's locations. No coupon can be combined with any other coupon or offer.
If I buy my ticket online do I have to go to the ticket booth?
No. Do not go to the ticket booth with your online print out. All online tickets are scanned at the entrance to the haunted house(s).
Is there a group discount?
Yes. Qualified groups of twenty (20) or more can receive a discount if the tickets are purchased in advance. For any group sales questions email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a contact phone number and we will call you.
