Covid-19 Safety

Will ScareHouse Still Be Fun This Year?

• Yes! Fun and safety go hand-in-hand as our two biggest goals. To ensure that, nightly attendance is limited to 50% of our normal occupancy, and each group will be private.  You and your group of friends will be the ONLY ones allowed to enter together (No more than six people per group)

• All queues and other areas of the attraction will incorporate and enforce physical distancing. Click here to learn more about our check-in and virtual queue process

All ScareHouse tickets must now be purchased online. No tickets will be sold at the door. We have decreased the number of tickets sold each night to help with wait time and social distancing on the property. Tickets WILL sell out. Purchase online and early to reserve your date.

ScareHouse feels a bit different and a bit shorter this year due to social distancing of our creatures, the temporary elimination of all touch points & tight spaces, and mandatory reduced occupancy for both guests and cast. We take the safety of our guests and cast very seriously and that does mean our 2020 production, as well as that of any haunted attraction you’re likely to visit this year – will differ from previous seasons. But because of our limited capacity this season, haunt fans enjoy shorter wait times and are able to enter the haunts with no one other than those in their personal bubble. We’re grateful for everyone who continues to support ScareHouse. The haunters across the country who are permitted to open our attractions this year are all working tirelessly to entertain our fans during this very challenging pandemic.

The Basement is closed and off-limits until 2021
