Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Really Well Done

    I went here on a Friday evening with my two sons, 9 and 13. The path was really laid out well, and there were plenty of frights along the way. I think it was perfect for kids in that age range. Great job!

    They asked us to let them know what things they did that were affective, so here's everything. For $20 it's hard to find a better bargain and it goes to charity so it was worth every penny. Parking wasn't bad, but it could get bad I suppose judging by the size of the lot. There was no line so we got in instantly, some haunts I've been to make you wait an hour or more and are more expensive. The staff was helpful and had a good sense of humor, which is lacking in a few other places. They had a kid section of the trail which was great for youngsters, I wish I had brought my son earlier. That part wasn't all that scary, but a kid might beg to differ. That part was $10 I believe and is worth it. Beyond that is a "gatekeeper" guy which is nice so kids know not to keep going that way. My personal favorite thing on the trail was the light display shooting up into the trees, it was really pretty to look at, so keep that guys. Maybe prompt people to look up while monsters sneak up catching people off guard. The trail was solid overall, if you can, use more diversionary tactics. A cheap scare that anyone can do is to find something like a metal drum, like a 55 gallon drum and have someone bang on it really loud to make people jump out of their skin--always fun. I liked the use of lights that blinded me a bit so I couldn't see what was next, a ghoul hiding right behind the lamp is great. I also enjoyed the zombie in the shallow grave, that was cool. Make more of those and a bigger graveyard, the candles were a nice touch. One sad thing, we managed (even with my slow pacing as group leader) to catch up to the last group which caught the chainsaw Guy by surprise and he wasn't able to make that last big scare. No big deal though, happens a lot all over. I also enjoyed the use of a fog machine in the forest, that's first class stuff, keep doing that! The screamers running at you were pretty nerve wrecking and the tree jumpers knew not to bother with me and waited until the girls got close before pouncing, fun times. What was up with the jesting microphone guy? The spider guy needs a little work, so give that spot extra love next year if you can. Buy a few bags of dollar webbing and retire the rope web. Maybe fake a wrapped corpse somehow as a prop or an actual wrapped person doing a distraction asking for help while the spider person gets into position to scare. We liked the guy that trailed alongside the group for a minute near the beginning. The worst thing about the whole experience was that it eventually ended. It was good times and I thank everybody who made it happen. Cheers!

  • Email Verified Super fun!!

    Not too scary for my 9 yo, but they have a cute trail for younger/faint of heart. They put a lot of work into this and we had an absolute blast. Nice length, as in not to short or long. It’s in the woods so that added to the spooky factor. Would def go again!!

  • Email Verified Lots of frights

    Greeters were friendly and helpful in conveying the rules and transitioning between trail elements. Boo loop could use bigger/ more visuals. The actual terror trail had different scenes and characters along the trail to tap into various fears. Many surprises to keep the scared feeling going. One of the rules was no running. At one point, our whole group couldn't resist. My 15 year old was so scared she was silent the entire ride home.

    A great family haunted walk through the woods. Plus entrance fees to benefit a good cause. Brought some non perishable foods for a discount on the entrance fee, too!

  • Email Verified Rain made it creepier

    Last night it was raining. They opened late but they did open. The rain and wet in the dark woods just made everything creepier.

  • Email Verified Fun scare for all!

    Took my niece and nephews to this last night and we all had a blast. One of my nephews wanted to do it again when we were done. The monsters come out of nowhere to scare you, which I loved. Beware to those to the rear of the group as you go through. Also be careful at the end, just when you think it is over, it is not!

  • Haunted trail is perfect for entire family.

    Its starts out with a section that is tame for kids. Then you pass through a gate with a ghoul and the mood changes! Darker mor forboding. Lots of good scares . The lighting was done well and helps set the mood! Try it out you will love it too.

  • Email Verified Family Focused

    Kid friendly portion to set the mood. Then amp up the fun with plenty of scares. The lights dancing in the tree canopy were beautifully creepy, but don't let the light show distract you, too much! The folks who put this together were very imaginative, if more than a little cracked.
