Love to be scared? Haunted Houses rise from the dead every fall to frighten those brave enough to enter. Here’s a list of what we know is happening (some are opening this weekend and next), along with any coupons or discounts. We’ve also included a handy map below , which should help you easily locate the attractions. Just click on the zombie icon for more details.
Typically, a VIP ticket gets you to the head of the line with no waiting. However, some attractions have added an “Immediate Entry” or “Skip the Line” ticket at a premium price.
Visiting a haunted house this year will be different, but hopefully in a good way. As the 13th Floor notes “…take a minute and think about something with us. Haunted houses are not concerts, sporting events or theme parks. The nature of a haunted house is all about physical distancing; it always has been, it’s what we do normally. The attractions are linear and very seldom would you ever come within 6 feet of other patrons. You walk the attraction in a single file line with no wandering. We do everything we can to make you feel “alone”. But this year, we’re going above and beyond our normally safe and distanced methods of operation, and taking it to the next level.”
Here’s what you can expect for 2020:
Buy your tickets early. Admission tickets will be reservation-based for specific time slots.
Limited attendance will reduce line wait times. You may still have the option to reduce your wait even further, or eliminate it all together, by purchasing a Fast Pass or Skip the Line ticket.
All lines for entry will be physically distanced. The majority of your wait time will be outside, so dress accordingly.
Hand washing stations and hand sanitizer will be in abundance.
All actors will be wearing PPE masks under their makeup or theatrical masks. No one will touch you when you are inside the attraction.
All attractions are open through October 31, unless otherwise noted.
