How to Avoid Long Lines
We know lines are rough. So we have music and haunters in the main area to keep you busy. The Haunted Forest line has a number system. We limit capacity on big nights, and have had a few sell-outs a year for the last few years (Saturdays). So here’s some advice:
- Grab VIP Passes on crowded nights. The far right ticket window is VIP Only. Inside the venue it applies to The Haunted Forest, Dark Trail, Hayride, & Killers in the Corn.
- Work the System. Your ticket to the Haunted Forest Trail, our featured attraction, has a number on the back. You can’t even get in line until the counter at the entrance to the Forest shows your number or higher. We make sure the line is never more than about a 30 minute wait. So, if you arrive in the first hour, consider hitting a couple of our additional attractions first. Then you should be able to get right in line for the Haunted Forest.
- Come on Lighter Nights. The following calendar will give you an idea of how crowded we anticipate being on any given night. As we grow, even the green nights have some lines. The orange nights are super busy, but the 20th and 27th stand on their own for crowd size. Its the worst if you show up between 8:30 and 9:30 one of those nights…better to get there at 7 or 10. The last 2 Saturdays in October have sold out the last 2 years.
The bottom line is, if you want a more intimate experience, show up on our least crowded nights. You can typically get a deal on admission, you’ll encounter less people, and the scares are all the same!
You Save by Buying Packages
The Haunted Forest is $19 online. All other attractions use “carnival style” tickets (We’re using bracelets with checkboxes in 2019 for the packages)
Tickets per attraction:
Dark Trail: 5
Killers in the Corn: 4
Carny Crypt: 2
Menacing Maze: 1
T-Shirt Games: 1
That’s a total of 17 attraction tickets, which cost $34 when you buy at Panic Point. Add the $19 for the Haunted Forest and the cost is $53. So you save $14 off the retail price online buying the Package of Fear.
Additional Attraction Tickets are available for purchase at the ticket booth inside Panic Point (between Carnival Games and the Haunted Forest Exit) at a cost of $2.50 per, or $2 per ticket if you buy 8 or more.
Why we have Sellouts
As much as we would LOVE to give each patron their own personal, private, haunted experience, we can’t do that. So, we send you into our attractions in groups. Here are the steps we have taken, especially in the Haunted Forest, to make your experience the scariest it can be on any night you come out.
- Groups enter the attractions at regular time intervals. We keep track of numbers every 15 minutes, evaluate, and adjust the flow into the forest accordingly.
- We’ve added over 50 security cameras in 2019. In addition to keepeing everyone safer, our security team can monitor crowd flow and pull slow groups temporarily aside to allow for constant flow.
- Panic Point will close to new patrons when we reach max capacity. Purchasing your ticket online is the only way to guarantee entry on the most crowded nights. Saturday, Oct 19 & 26 are the biggest, and sold out the last 3 years.
- We will extend closing if necessary (no later than 1AM)
