Frequently Asked Questions
What are the hours of operation?
THE MASSACRE will be open from 7pm until Midnight Fridays, Saturdays, and Halloween. Thursdays, Sundays, and other nights we will be open from 7:00pm until 11pm. (see calendar for full list of dates and hours) THE MASSACRE often stays open later to accommodate patrons on busy nights but the box office will never close earlier than posted times.
What time does the line start forming?
Early in the season, arriving at opening time is fine, but as we get closer to Halloween the crowds get larger.
How long is the wait in line?
In general, we try to keep the wait time to under 1 hour. However, on the last 2 weekends in October and on Halloween the lines will be much longer. Buy your tickets online to avoid the box office line and try to come earlier in October or on a weeknight if you would like to avoid the longer lines!
How long does it take to go through the haunted house?
That depends on many factors. First you must buy your tickets, then wait to enter the haunts. Once you enter, you go through at your own pace so the length of the experience varies from group to group. The main haunt, THE MASSACRE is the longest, and FEAR FACTORY 3D is a little bit shorter. To walk through both haunts might take 30 - 40 min, plus time in lines. The lines get longer the closer it gets to Halloween. You may encounter wandering creatures the moment you leave your car, so be on your guard!
Can I make a reservation?
No. THE MASSACRE is first come, first serve.
What are the prices for the different haunted houses?
Ticket price is $25.00 for BOTH Haunted Houses.

Is smoking allowed?
Smoking is allowed only in the parking lot. Smoking is NOT allowed indoors.
Can we take flash photos of your haunted houses?
NO photography of any sort is not allowed in the haunts. Haunted houses are dark and people's eyes (especially the actors) adjust to the low light. When you flash your camera you're not only ruining other customers' experience but you're hurting the actors' eyes. Also, the fog used inside the attractions ruins flash photography. Although no photography or videotaping is allowed inside (including nightshot), the monsters working outside will quite often pose for pictures.
What can't we bring with us inside your haunted houses?
No pets! No weapons! No alcoholic beverages! No cameras! No smoking! No laser pointers or flashlights! No food or beverages!
