FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How can I help your Haunt?
A: We are always looking for new victims and mortal sponsors to help us out each year. There are many different things that need to be done in order to run a haunt. From marketing, to planning, building, painting, acting, crowd control, and other large tasks that are needed to keep our happy haunt running smoothly. If you are interested in helping out in any way, please feel free to contact us. We are always looking for new spooks to expand our haunted family!
Q: Is it scary?
A: We think so! We find it delightfully unlivable here in this ghostly retreat. Every year we get scarier and more intense. So in past years if we haven’t scared you, come on back all our ghosts have been dying to meet you, and I bet you, we will get you this time! Also, we don’t recommend our haunt to children under the age of 13 without an adult. This is a haunted attraction and it is meant to be scary! We hate to see parents dragging their small whining children through the haunt while screeching there voices as they cry their eyes out and rune it for everyone else. Don’t bring your children if you don’t think they can handle it! Leave them in the Dungeon.
Q: Can I bring my kids?
A: As stated above, this is a haunted attraction and is meant to scare! In past years we have encouraged parents to bring their troll like children. However, year after year we have been asked to get more and more, scary from neighbors and friends. We have found that some children get very scared and cry while others do not. Although we will not refuse anybody to enter our unlivable retreat due to age, we ask that you use your digression as a parent to decide if your troll like child can handle it.
Q: Will the monsters touch us?
A: Only if you don’t behave or touch them while going through the haunt… Then they will tear off your arm or leg, which ever is closer to them. Our actors are taught not to touch the Mortals. However, they may brush up against you on accident, or tap you on the shoulder to get your attention. Other than that, our actors will not touch you. If by chance they do, please notify the lord and Master of our Haunt and he will asses the situation.
Q: Can I take photos/video?
A: Yes! We encourage people to take photos of our display. However, we do not allow flash photography or videos INSIDE the Mausoleum. We spirits haunt our best in gloomy darkness and are frightfully sensitive to bright lights. Besides it causes problems with our actors and ruins it for others. So NO FLASH PICTURES, please!
Q: Where should I park?
A: We ask that you park on the side of the road and carefully not to close to the cliff! Please be courteous of our haunting neighbors by not parking in their driveways! Violators may be towed off the cliff at owner’s expense.
Q: Can we get refused admission?
A: YES! We reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone for any circumstance. This can be as little as being rude, uses of foul language, or more aggressive Mortal behavior like pushing, vulgar actions, weapons of any kind, and alcohol. This is to help keep things safe and enjoyable for everyone.
Q: What if I or my children chicken out and can’t go any further?
A: Ahh! We ghost call this the Chicken sins rum. Our Ghostly actors have received your sympathetic vibrations and are told to break character and help the “chickens” out to the nearest exit.
Q: How may people do you let in at a time?
A: We will let 5 people in at any given time. We ask large crowds to split into smaller groups as it makes it easier for you mortals to walk and it helps prevent blockage inside the haunt. Also, it makes it easier for our actors to scare the skin off each and everyone of you!
Q: What happens if I lose something in the haunt?
A: Do not stop! After you exit the haunt, notify one of the haunt staff members. Let us know what you have lost and we will have our Grave robbers find it promptly. But we will not stop the show for your lost article. If the property is not found during the show times we will call upon our entire ghosts to look for the item that night and you can leave a contact number or address for us to get a hold of you. We are not responsible for any lost items. There is no guarantee that we can find the item that is lost so please do not bring things into the haunt you don’t want to lose! Do NOT wear your best clothes to the haunt! If you damage something in the haunt, please let us know, so we can address the problem to the Caretakers.
Q: Are there restrooms available?
A: NO!. We do not have restrooms for public use. So make sure you don’t pee like a baby.
Q: Is your event indoors or outdoors?
A: Our event is outdoors. Dress accordingly! We will! HA ha ha.
Q: Is your event open if it rains?
A: It really depends on how bad the weather is. In case of a light sprinkle, yes, we will remain open. If there is a down pour, we will be closed. Even us ghost don’t like to get wet.
