Mixing masks, elaborate makeup, animatronics and dozens of actors, the Hall produces a unique blend of the old and new.
The event is 100 percent new every year, sprawling across a building, several tents, sheds, pathways and even a Vortex Tunnel. The double tent black maze finale has been known to reduce grown men to blubbering wrecks, and just for giggles the walls are moved on a regular basis to keep repeat customers from getting too cocky. The Haunted Hall is old school haunting at its best and great fun.
THE WAIT: Lines last 10-30 minutes, and the tour can take up to 45 minutes or more due to the lights-off maze.
