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. 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 9 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, and generally increases the later we get into October. We recommend coming earlier in the season for the shortest wait times.

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 2021, 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, but a rule of thumb is anywhere between 25 and 40 minutes to do both trails.

Q: What should I wear?

A: You will be outside, so dress appropriately for cool, October weather and wear comfortable shoes for hiking/walking. Face masks are recommended in all queue lines, especially for those who have not had the COVID vaccine. If you are going on the Spatter Alley trail add-on, make sure you wear clothes and shoes that you don't mind getting wet and possibly stained.

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: Yes. Windy Hill has a concession stand.

Q: What is the Spatter Alley Trail Add-on?

A: Spatter Alley is an optional conclusion to the 13 Candles haunted trail, for those who want to get gross! The zombie apocalypse is at hand, but our intrepid groundscreepers have come up with a way to blow the minds of the undead: literally! You will be subjected to brains, guts, gore, ooze and slime flying through the air as you run the gauntlet of exploding zombies and unfortunate victims! We give you a t-shirt to be your canvas of artistic gore in this ultimate coup de gross! You will get wet and stained, so make sure you wear old clothes and shoes in this attraction. You will have to sign a waiver before entering the Spatter Alley.
Note: This is and add-on to the general admission ticket, so the total price is $30, which includes both trails plus the Spatter Alley, plus t-shirt.
