COULD I GET LOST ONCE ON THE HAUNTED ROAD?
Some drivers have reported feeling momentary blackouts or the unexplainable feeling of being "lost" while driving The Haunted Road. If you are not one of those people, then it is relatively easy to navigate as it is a one-way road that you can travel from start-to-finish.
HOW LONG IS THE TOTAL EXPERIENCE?
The Haunted Road is estimated to take around 40 minutes to drive from start to finish but varies. We recommend using the bathroom prior to arriving as porta potties are limited.
DO I NEED A RADIO?
Yes, we recommend driving a vehicle with a working radio for the complete ghost hunting experience. Ghosts are known to interrupt radio stations on The Haunted Road and you may be able to hear them if you listen carefully.
WHAT IF I NEED TO USE THE BATHROOM?
We recommend using the bathroom prior to arriving as porta potties are limited.
In an emergency, please inform our road rangers so they can assist.
WHAT IF I NEED TO GET OUT OF MY VEHICLE OR LEAVE EARLY?
For everyone’s safety, all guests must remain in their vehicles for the duration of the experience except in designated areas.
In the event of an emergency, please talk to one of our road rangers so they can assist.
WHAT IF MY VEHICLE BREAKS DOWN OR RUNS OUT OF GAS?
Vehicles are known to experience unexpected happenings while on The Haunted Road. Tow trucks can only enter The Haunted Road during daylight hours (they are too scared to come at night) so we recommend that all vehicles are tuned up and gas tanks are full prior to entering the experience.
In case of an emergency, our road rangers will work with you to safely and immediately relocate your vehicle to the side of the road.
IS THE VENUE COMPLETELY OUTDOORS?
Yes, The Haunted Road will take place completely outdoors and in open air barns (in The Barnyard). The terrain is rough, perfect for a true haunted experience. Since the terrain is unpaved, you can expect your vehicle to get a little muddy and wet while on The Haunted Road.
CAN I USE MY CAMERA DURING THE EXPERIENCE?
Yes, you can take photos while you aren't driving, and the flash must be turned off.
You may record short videos (up to 15 seconds each) while you aren't driving and without any flash or external lighting.
If you capture the experience, be sure to tag us at @thehauntedrd on all social media channels! We may even re-share it!
CAN I WEAR MY HALLOWEEN COSTUME?
Yes! We highly encourage all guests to wear their Halloween costumes! No weapons allowed. We recommend socks, boots and long pants to protect you from the natural elements if you are planning on getting out of your vehicle for any reason.
IS THE EVENT FAMILY-FRIENDLY?
People of all ages are welcome to attend The Haunted Road but please note that once you are on the road, you must drive the entire road in order to exit, it is a one-way road. In the event that you need to modify your experience, you can raise your windows, lower the radio volume and non-drivers can close their eyes.
Many youth who enjoy scary and creepy experiences will have no issues while on The Haunted Road however, you know your limits best and should consider that prior to purchasing tickets. Driving The Haunted Road can be frightening and fun but may be intense for younger attendees.
