How to Survive a Haunted House

1. Discounts tickets are sometimes offered early in the season but these "preview performances" may not be full shows, full casts, and in some cases, fully operational. That said look for promos on their social media channels.


2. Buy tickets in advance on their website and avoid the first of two long lines you'll face. Late in the season the "fast pass" are worth the extra bucks.


3. Get there early as lines form quickly after dusk. Many haunts open between 6–7pm.


4. Don't be a jerk, don't touch anything, don't wear costumes or masks, or don't be inebriated. They will not let you enter, kick you out, and won't give you refunds.


5. Parking fees are usually not included in ticket prices, and often need to be paid in cash upon arriving.

6. No phone in your hand inside the maze, unless you want it slapped out of your hand, stepped on, crushed, and/or lost. They will not stop the attraction to look for your belongings. 

7. Avoid loose, dangling jewelry unless you want it accidentally ripped from your ear or neck. 

8. Wear comfortable shoes and avoid heels. The paths can be treacherous and often muddy.

9. Have a snack before you get there. Being scared and all that walking will wear you out, and you want to avoid the concession stands.

10. Minimum of 13 years old is generally advised for many haunted attractions. If you have to ask if it's too scary for your kid, your kid is not old enough. But only you know your kid's tolerance.
