Review This Haunt
  • My most favorite haunted house in the state

    This haunt is the longest in Iowa. A total 30-45 minute walk through. Featuring zombies, clowns, and demons. The ticket prices are well worth it.

  • True Review

    I myself am a pretty big chicken. I don't like scary things. The Heart of Darkness is a good place for a moderate scare. However the line is terrible. They give you a ticket and on the ticket is a number. We had to wait for 300 people to go in. It took probably a good 2 hours and a half to actually get into the attraction. The haunt itself was pretty good. It took 30 mins to go through.

  • SCARY FUN!

    Don't listen to the last reviewer! Fun for adults and scary for kids. A little pricey so get your website coupons ($2.00 off and 4 for $50.00. Regular is $18.00 each) and have fun. For $12.50, well worth the money. I wanted to go through twice!
