Frequently Asked Questions

How long is each event?

Samara’s Retirement Home for the Dead depend on your walking speed people tend to take 25-35 minutes to get through. The Escape rooms you have your choice of 3- or 5-minute rooms.

When does everything start each night?

Tickets sales start at 7:30 pm (new later time this year) and end at 11 pm sharp. Events do not start running until it is dark; you are free to wait in our event barn or in line for the events until they begin running.

What should I wear?

You will spend some of your time outside as our lines are outdoors, and they are under cover. We are open rain or moonshine, so please dress for the weather. There are many different surfaces you will walk through so wear comfortable shoes that can get muddy.

What age are your attractions appropriate for?

We advise no kids under the age of 10, and all kids under the age of 13 must be accompanied by an adult. No refunds will be given for kids who exit early or end up not going through. (Samara’s Boarding House has many early exits.)

Will my group stay together through all the events?

Samara’s Retirement Home has space constraints and for safety reasons typically only up to 4 people can go through at a time, therefore, it is possible your group will be broken up to smaller groups.

Will I be touched by the monsters?

Our monsters are not allowed to touch you, however, occasionally due to close corners accidental contact may occur but no intentional contact will occur.

Can I touch the monsters?

No we do not permit you to touch any props or monsters in our events for the safety of you and our monsters; doing so will result in you being escorted off the premises.
