Our Covid-19 Measures

The safety of our guests and staff is a top priority for our haunted attraction. It is important to remember the difference between outdoor haunted attractions and other venues for mass gatherings such as sports arenas, movie theaters, and concerts:

  • Capacity can be reduced/managed with virtual queue to allow for appropriate social distancing.
  • Exposure time is limited. Guests generally move throughout their experience. The guests are not sitting in a single location, elbow-to-elbow, for an extended period.
  • A large percentage of attraction attendance is made up of family members and others who live in the same home (social bubble) and thus do not need to be physically distanced from each other. 

This is the way we will operate this fall by using timed ticketing technology and a virtual queue line program to social distance groups safety and efficiently. 

Being an outdoor attraction is on our side as contact tracing has proven that Covid-19 is far less contracted from being outdoors around people than indoors. As you park you will be given instructions to join a virtual queue line by entering your contact information and the number of guests in your car. When capacity allows you will be notified via text to exit your vehicle and show the text to staff at the security entrance.

The waiting lines are marked to allow for social bubbles (your group) to wait socially distanced from other bubbles. Hand washing stations will be placed at the entrance and throughout the midway and entrances of each attraction. Signage and audio messages educating the guests how to stay safe will be posted. Masks will be required to be worn by staff and guests inside the attractions when social distancing is not possible.  You must continue to remain 6 feet apart from other groups both inside the attractions, and while waiting.

All pathways will no longer have hanging material or squeeze tight areas have been removed to allow for air to remain moving. Dedicated staff to maintain high touch surfaces to be cleaned often. All front-line staff will be in PPE gear. Actors are not sharing makeup kits, all costumes are dedicated to one person, all actors are wearing masks under their costume mask. Temperature is tested for all staff daily. 

We have done our homework to make your traditional visit to the haunted attraction as safe as possible.  Our staff has been educated to make your Halloween as safe and socially distanced as possible. Thanks for all the support so we all can laugh and scream behind our masks together this season.
