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 the Ghoulish Garden Light Display or No-Startle Thursdays

Q: Will Anyone Touch Me?

A: No. None of our spirits will intentionally 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 over 12-24 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. Please inquire about additional group discounts for 25 or more members by emailing us at info@bloodlakeva.com

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. Tickets are good for any one operational night, so there is no need for rainchecks to be issued - just come on another night.  If the final night is rained out, then passes good for attendance the following year will be issued to those who are physically present to receive them.

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

A: The wait depends on how busy we are. Keep in mind that the earlier in the season and the closer to our opening time you arrive, the less your wait time will be.

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. We will divide or combine people into groups to keep an optimal flow on busy nights.

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. A rule of thumb is anywhere between 20 and 30 minutes for the trail. Move at your own pace in the Ghoulish Garden Light Display.

Q: What should I wear?

A: 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: Partially. Due to steep inclines and possible sandy/muddy conditions, we do not recommend our haunted trails for those using wheelchairs. The Ghoulish Garden Light Display is accessible, traveling across grass from the driving range area.

Q: Are food and drinks available?

A: Yes. Windy Hill has a snack bar.
