Welcome to Shady Rest Haunt.
What was once a stop for stagecoaches heading west has become a home to lost souls, a haven to monsters and cryptids, and a waystation for the undead. As you wander through our land you will meet the mistress of the mists. An unquiet spirit given form only by the fog that surrounds her. You will explore our ice cave, imported from the frozen crags of the Himalaya Mountains. Our gothic cemetery is home to many undead, including our corpse bride, endlessly searching for her husband. We recently hired a crew to clean up the toxic waste that was dumped here. We even brought in a scientist to make sure it was completed correctly, but after a freak accident involving some unknown sludge and a bag of microwave popcorn, he has gone quite insane. If he asks you to mix things together, well, you can do it, but it might explode.

What to expect:
We are not your typical trail/maze style haunt. We use long winding corridors to guide you through our scenes and "rooms". We take the time to allow our actors to act and spin a web of stories and tales to entertain you and fuel your nightmares. We use lights, lasers, water, fog, and sound effects to confuse your senses and attack your phobias.

As you wander through our land you will encounter some sloped surfaces, tree roots, two short stairways, and uneven ground.

We encourage our guests to take their time to enjoy the months of hard work that has gone into custom building our scenes, costumes, and props.

Hours of Operation: 7:00 pm - 10:30 pm ticket sales start at 6:30 pm If you are in line by 10:30 we will get you through the haunt ..

Admission Costs: adults $18.00 children (12 and under) $12.00

  • Great actors

    Some of the actors do the typical jump scare. But several of them really have their own thing going. One of them stops the group for scary stories. Another pulls people into the science lab and makes them a lab assistant. It is scary and entertaining Then they have this huge laser and fog water effect that was just beautiful to see. Till some horned beast jumped out at me. Can't wait to come back.

  • Email Verified Creepy!

    I loved the beginning, it set the mood. And the creepy factor lingered through out. I loved the actors who stayed in character the whole time. My husband, and I kept switching who would be in the back based on how scared we got. The end was amazing! Worth the money and then some. I loved it!

  • Email Verified 2nd year haunt - ramping up quickly

    Having "scenes" that haunt actors get to interact with guests makes this a fun haunt. The actors themselves take a lot of pride in their areas and are constantly tweaking to make the most of their scenes. Lots of special effects that trick you to see things and hear things.
