This is the hardest question we get and unfortunately the answer is: it just depends. We have 5 year olds who come through with no problems and 50 year olds who can't get in the door.
So the answer is it depends on your scare tolerance. You can ask to go through with the lights on and this helps a lot of our guests to summon up the courage to enter.
Please also note that there are strobe lights and loud noises on the Haunted House tour.
We have lots of fun things to do in addition to the haunted mansion tour - games, arts & crafts, face painting (and a free hypnotist from 6pm-10pm). These are all included in your ticket price. There will also be some pizza, snacks, water and baked goods for sale.
But as a friendly reminder, there are no refunds.
Everyone aged 3 and older who enters the Haunted House needs a ticket.
If a parent does not go through the Haunted House but the child does, only the child needs a ticket.
Haunted House tours are given in groups and there is a guide for each group. We do ask that you take your child's "scare tolerance" and into account before sending them in without you. Nervous children can ask for a tour with the lights on. This is also a great option for those who are new to haunted houses or who are unsure about going in.
This is a decision that will be made on an individual basis. The Haunted House is dark and there are obstacles along the way. So, the answer is more often no than yes to this question. However, all of the activities outside of the haunted house - games, refreshments, face painting, and crafts (and the free hypnotist from 6pm - 10pm) are easily accessible.
