Frequently Asked Questions
How long is each event?
The Wagons of Fear is 20 minutes; Samara’s Retirement Home for the Dead and the Dead Maze depend on your walking speed people tend to take 15-20 minutes to get through.
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 the majority of your time outside as our lines and most of our events are outdoors, so 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 is the only event with early exits, our Dead Maze and Wagons of Fear don’t have early exits.)
Will my group stay together through all the events?
The Wagons of Fear seats anywhere from 18-22 people, Samara’s Boarding House and the Dead Maze have 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 for these 2 events.
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.
