Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is it indoors?

A: Blood Lake is an outdoor attraction.

Q: Is it scary?

A: Of Course. Blood Lake is designed to disorient, frighten and entertain a mature audience. Blood Lake is family friendly (we would love to scare the crap out of your entire family), but is not intended for young children.

Q: Is there an age limit?

A: Yes. We do not allow children under 9 years of age on the trail attractions except on No-Scare Thursdays. Children under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. There is no age limit for No-Startle Thursdays.

Q: Will Anyone Touch Me?

A: No. None of our monsters will  touch any visitor. All performers will respect distancing and will be wearing PPE, although it may be camouflaged as part of a costume or mask. Security will not touch you unless you intentionally touch anyone or anything inside the attraction.

Q: Are there strobe lights  or fog machines in the attraction?

A: Yes. Strobe lights and fog machines are used in the attraction.

Q: Can I take pictures or use a mobile device inside the attraction?

A: No cameras. No cell phones on the trails. Flashes and cell phone lights ruin the show that you and others paid to see, and also pose a safety hazard to those who must spend eternity in the dark. Taking calls during the show is disrespectful to say the least. Don't expect to have friendly spirits if you get caught on the phone. We reserve the right to confiscate cell phones for the duration of the show if our policy is ignored. Bottom Line: Leave the camera home and turn cell phones OFF while on the trails.

Q: Are there group discounts?

A: Yes. We offer a 20% discount for groups with 10 or more members. We define a group as a collection of people who pay in ONE BOX OFFICE TRANSACTION as opposed to a collection of people who know each other but pay separately.IMPORTANT:Please keep in mind that we have always had a NO REFUND policy. In this year especially, with limited tickets available, we wouldn't survive large group cancellations. Please make sure you have firm commitments before purchasing your tickets! Thank you for your understanding on this matter. If members of your party are unable to attend, feel free to sell or give away those tickets, but we cannot refund them.

Q: What If It Is Raining?

A: We're not afraid of a little rain, but our attractions will be closed if it is raining heavily or we deem it unsafe for customers. The decision on the trail is made at 5:30 PM each night, and will be posted on our website. Those who purchased tickets on a cancelled night will have the option of rescheduling for another night, or receiving a refund. Please keep in mind that if the attraction is open, then no refunds will be given, but we will do our best to reschedule purchased tickets for another night. If the final night is cancelled due to weather, then refunds will be given.

Q: How long do I have to wait in line?

A: The wait depends on how busy we are, but with timed ticketing, you can expect to enter the attraction within the 30 minute time slot for which you purchased a ticket. Walk-up purchases are subject to time slot availability, and if there are no tickets available for the desired time slot, you will be asked to wait in your vehicle until space is available.

Q: I have a big group. How many of us can enter at the same time?

A: No more than 10 people can enter the outdoor trail at the same time. This is a safety issue, and also helps provide a better haunting experience for every customer. In 2020, we may divide large groups, but will NOT combine smaller groups  into larger groups.

Q: How long does it take to go through?

A: Each group moves at a different pace, so it is difficult to give an exact time, and the changes we have had to make this year make it particularly difficult to predict. A rule of thumb is anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes to do both trails.

Q: What should I wear?

A: A safety mask, which will be required in the queue lines, and highly recommended on the trail.  You will be outside. Dress appropriately for cool, October weather and wear comfortable shoes for hiking/walking.

Q: Are there chainsaws? Are there clowns? Are there ________?

A: Do you think we?d really ruin the surprise? Come on now.

Q: Is the attraction wheelchair accessible?

A: No. Due to steep inclines and possible sandy/muddy conditions, we do not recommend our haunted trails for those using wheelchairs.

Q: Are food and drinks available?

A: To be determined.  We may not be able to offer refreshments in 2020.
