Review This Haunt
  • In 2016

    Very long wait. Over 3 hours wait for something that lasted less than 10 minutes. First person we encountered didn't even bother to dress in costume. Rooms were so small people couldn't get round the actors so groups backed up into one another from screaming, shouting actors that were not even scary - just annoying.They had 'punch bags' up that were full of something hard - my niece ended up with a cut lip from when her brother swung it back to hard not knowing what was in it and thinking it was a soft boxing bag.They have a rule of no cussing but had a video playing of the Exorcist F-you Jesus scene while also saying they are family friendly. Kids should not have to hear the F-bomb every other word at full volume. Actors were pointing toy guns at people. The actors with ax's, baseball bats, and other things kept the 'weapons' to themselves. Maybe the toy guns should have been left out of the whole haunt since they have a no guns allowed policy. Many actors not in any kind of costume unless the street clothes were supposed to be costumes. They claim to be a charity group yet are only non-profit all money goes back to the organization that runs the house and not to any charity program. This place has declined over the past three years from a fun scary event to too politically correct, too many clowns, and kid friendly to be worth the money they ask for entry.

  • Locals love it!

    It is by far the best haunted house in the area! Every year they do something different and it always scares me! Plus they do not touch you!

  • Great House, Horrendous Wait

    Drove an hour and a half to get to it. Waited in line for 3 1/2 HOURS to get in. Liked the house and had some unique scares and attractions. We came down the year before and waited an hour and a half just to get to the ticket booth where it was another hour to an hour and a half. We left. Nice house but I'll never go back because of the wait.

  • Very Fun

    I have gone 4 years in a row and this year was BY FAR the best yet. I actually went three times this year and every time I went I was scared even more than the time before. They change things up every night and there is always something or someone hiding in the corner or lurking in the shadows or even people popping out from above.

  • Slightly Disappointed

    We drove from Iowa City, which is a hour drive to this haunted house. Anyway we got there and waited at least a hour, then got told that if we purchased regular tickets it would be two hours wait so we purchased fast pass instead. Waited 20 minutes (better than two hours) and finally we went through it. It was only 5-6 minutes long and the actors were too formal. To ruin our experience, there was a staff behind us telling us where we have to go isn't haunted house mean we gotta find it ourselves? So it's not worth the drive! It was lacking creativity.
