Frequently Asked Questions
Where is Panic Point?
When is the Haunted House open?
Mostly weekends from 9/23 through 11/4. Here’s our calendar.
Do you offer any special offers or promotions?
ABSOLUTELY! Just visit our Discount Page for the information you seek.
Do you charge for Parking?
Nope. Park as much as you want for free.
When should I arrive?
You do NOT need to arrive right at 7pm when the ticket booth opens. Like an amusement park, you should get there early enough to do what you want without being cut off by closing. Our published closing time is when our lines close. Even if there is a long line for, say, The Haunted Forest, if you get in line before closing time you will be able to go through that attraction. You should always plan to arrive at least 2 hours before our published close time.
How Scary is the Haunted Trail?
It gets a little scarier every year, but the scariest elements still get 4 out of 5 skulls on the scare-o-meter. If it were a movie we’d call it PG-13.
Is this a Family Friendly Haunted House?
5 of our haunted attraction are designed to scare on various levels: The Haunted Trail, Dark Walk, Killers in the Corn, Howling Hayride, & Carny Crypt. Children 8 to 11 probably shouldn’t do anything other than The Menacing Maze and our t-shirt winning games (Zombie Shootout and Carnival Games), along with food, music, & the bonfire. Children 7 and under are prohibited from entering the scarier attractions.
What if I want to stop half-way through?
Curl up in a ball and start crying and we’ll figure it out. Or just get the attention of one of the ushers/haunters, and they will find someone to escort you out of the forest. We have a few maintenance trails that will allow you to make the walk of shame while encountering as little ridicule as possible.
Do I have to sign a Liability Waiver?
Yup. Everybody signs a Panic Point Waiver upon entry. If you’d like to save some time when you arrive, you can Print the Waiver and bring it with you, allowing you to bypass the line at the Waiver Table.
What are The Rules?
The first rule is “NO INTENTIONAL CONTACT”. Haunters are well-trained, so any and all contact will be incidental to a bunch of people walking around in the dark. You will not be grabbed, dragged, hit, cut, gouged, marred, gored, impaled, or otherwise contacted intentionally by anyone in the forest. And, please, for your own safety, do not attempt to make contact or do harm to our beloved haunters. That is some seriously bad mojo. We have pre-ordered voodoo curses on all those who behave badly in the forest. Also, “Youngsville’s Finest” will be on hand at all times, and won’t hesitate to take you to the local correctional facility if you really get out of line. We do not allow patrons to enter the haunt who are intoxicated. The use of drugs before or at the haunt is absolutely prohibited. Disorderly conduct such as foul language and threats of violence will not be tolerated. If you are removed for violating our code of conduct (posted at the wavier table) you will be removed and sent home without a refund.
What should I wear?
We’ll be in “Axe-Murderer Semi-Formal”, so just make sure you don’t out-dress us. The first rule is NO COSTUMES. We don’t want anyone getting confused about who is there to scare and be scared. The trails have wood chips, but when it rains you may find some mud or a puddle. Leave the suede shoes at home. Dress warm, but if you get cold you can always warm up by the fire.
What if it Rains?
We prepare for weather. The parking lot and trails have been treated to handle some rain. Our default position is “OPEN” unless mother nature forces our hand. Watch the website if you’re worried about the weather. We will post updates and schedule changes (i.e. delaying our open) on the site. If we are forced to close in the middle of the evening you will receive a rain check.
Are there any Warnings?
We use a lot of strobe lights (who doesn’t?), so if you are prone to seizures due to strobes, enter at your own risk. If you have a heart condition, are prone to panic attacks, are pregnant, or otherwise frail, you should probably wait by the bonfire.
