This is an EXTREME HAUNT with a less intense option; for those who prefer a more low key experience (you will still be touched). Most individuals who visit Halls of Horror opt in for ”The Blood Experience”. During the blood experience you will be touched, possibly removed from your group, put in uncomfortable situations and covered in blood, dirt, and all kinds of unknown substances. If you have any allergies it’s best to steer clear of the blood experience.
Parking - Free, but limited to Street availability
We arrived at Halls of Horror around 9:30pm on Friday, October 11th. Parking for this attraction is free, but get there early as parking is on the street and the spots fill up quickly.
Signed waivers are a requirement to go through this haunt and anyone under 18 must bring an adult to sign for them. Halls of Horror offers two versions of their haunt, the original version for $20 or the blood experience that comes with a t-shirt for $35. No matter which version of the haunt you choose, the actors WILL touch you. This is an extreme haunt. If you are sensitive or easily offended, this is NOT the haunt for you.
Upon arriving we were greeted by an asylum patient! She did a really good job of setting the tone for the haunt. After signing our waivers and getting our tickets, (We opted for the Blood Experience), we made a deal with the devil himself before getting in line. There is no VIP or fast pass option for this haunt so everyone waits in the same. Overall the line wasn’t very long for us, we waited for about 25 minutes. Throughout the line there is artwork of bizarre circus folk and also televisions that are playing videos of some of the characters you may encounter in the attraction. Once you make it to the front of the line a very friendly staff member will explain the rules and safety precautions. If you opt in for the blood experience, they provide you with some eye protection. They send you into the attraction in smaller groups to help immerse you in the experience. With you entering in small groups, your interactions with the actors can be more intimate, and tailored specifically for you!
Among other creatures of the night, once inside the attraction you will encounter the likes of Adam the Bastard (A hillbilly with some serious mommy issues), a very convincing Leatherface and Happy the Clown (and boy does he have a surprise for you). All of the actors did a phenomenal with spacing and the time of their skits ensuring that everyone got the most out of the attraction.
Overall this was absolutely amazing interactive haunt and the blood experience was definitely the way to go! It is very clear that the owners and actors alike are very passionate about what they do and care about the product that they deliver.
