about The Dark Woods

1)  "How long is The Dark Woods?"

The Dark Woods is 3561 linear feet, but that's only if you walk straight, which is impossible, so it's longer than that.

2)  "No, I meant how long does it take to walk through The Dark Woods?"

Oh sorry.  It depends on the length of your legs and how many people you're holding on to while walking.


3)  "Can you please just tell me how long it will take to get through The Dark Woods?"

Yes, I can tell you, but I don't feel like telling you right now.

4)  "This is ridiculous.  Are all the characters in The Dark Woods this way?" (said with an annoyed tone and heavy sigh)

 No.  Most are worse.  If you'd like to file a complaint, please EMAIL the owner.

5)  "Is The Dark Woods scary?"

Unless you enjoy complete strangers and creeps breathing on you, sniffing your hair, and/or whispering in your ear, in the dark, while also being in the middle of nowhere.....then yes, we'd like to think it's, at the very least, a lil' uncomfortable.

6) "What is an appropriate age to attend The Dark Woods?"

We've hosted guests as young as three months and as old as "just about dead".  Everyone mostly has fun, and if someone is scared, our cast can "tone it down".


7) "Can I bring my dog to The Dark Woods?"


8)  "Do you believe in dumb questions?"

Yes.  Refer to question #7.

9)  "What's your favorite color?"

Black....really dark black.

11)  "Is The Dark Woods a Haunted Hayride?

Absolutely not.  In fact, any guest who is visibly intoxicated will be asked to leave, NO EXCEPTIONS/NO REFUNDS. 

13)  "Will the characters touch me?"

Our actors are trained to not touch anyone, and we request the same of our guests.  Incidental touching could occur.

14)  "How many people in a group?"

Our group sizes are no larger than 8 guests.  There is always the possibility smaller groups will be paired up, especially during busier times.  Please be advised.  if you arrive with a group larger than 8 people, we kindly request YOU decide how to split yourselves up.  Otherwise, we will do math, and that's gonna suck.

15)  "Is The Dark Woods fun?"

It freakin' better be.

16)  "What if it rains?"

The Dark Woods may be forced to close if the weather does not cooperate, HOWEVER, unless conditions are unworkable, The Dark Woods will remain in operation, and timed tickets for the time frames we are open will be valid, NO REFUNDS.  In the event The Dark Woods is forced to close, ticket holders will be allowed to choose another date to visit within the same season.   Notification of cancellation will occur via email and Facebook.  

17)  "What time will the event be cancelled?"

We do our best to cancel when our Lucky 8 Ball has provided all the answers to our weather woes, but there are many occasions when, as much as we try, we cannot control what time it will start to rain/snow.  For that reason, we do our best to notify customers via email as soon as the event has been officially cancelled.  There may be times when the event opens but cannot operate for the entire duration due to poor conditions.  Tickets purchased for specific time frames remain valid if we are open during those time frames. 


18)  "My ticket is for 9:00-10:00 p.m, and it's now 10:05 p.m..  How come I'm not in the haunt already?!!"

We offer timed ticketing admission and limited quantities of general admission.  Timed Ticketing specifies the time guests are allowed entry onto the entire property.  Please be aware: wait times could still exist as we strive to provide unique experiences to EVERYONE.   Patrons interested in an event with NO LINES should look for Halloween entertainment elsewhere.  This is an "ENTER AT OWN RISK" event.
