Scared By the Sound Haunted House

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is a Walk-Through Haunted House?

A: This walk-through style Haunted house is comprised of many highly detailed Halloween related scenes designed to bring you face to face with your worst fears and phobias. Custom built exclusively for use during the month of October, the main haunt itself is located under covered pavilions to protect against the elements. Other parts of the event are located outside.

Q: How long does it take?

A: Depending on the night, wait times on line vary with busier nights and longer wait times being closer to Halloween. The timed haunt experience averages 17-18 minutes. Come earlier in the month for the same bone chilling experience with less wait times on line. We also suggest purchasing tickets in advance online.

Q: How many people are allowed in at a time?

A: Groups are limited to a maximum of 7 persons at a time with some exceptions made when smaller persons make up part of group wishing to confront the unknown together.

Q: What if it's too scary?

A: If at any time a person decides the haunt is more than they can deal with they can tell any of the personnel inside of their desire to leave. They will be promptly and immediately escorted out through one of the interior exits. Upon exiting they will not be allowed back in the haunt but will instead be instructed on where they can reunite with their group. In addition there are NO REFUNDS.

Q: Will any of the actors touch me?

A: No! There is a no contact rule in this haunt that includes patrons. You do not touch anyone or anything and you will not be touched. Should intentional touching by a patron occur you will be immediately escorted off the premises without completing the event.

Q: Are there pictures allowed inside?

A: No. No cameras, camcorders, cell phones, glow sticks, flashlights or any other source of artificial light is permitted.
