Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to sign a waiver?
Yes. Everyone must sign their own waiver, which is an acknowledgment of the rules and risks. 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 if I lose my tickets?
Once we hand you your tickets they are your property, like your phone or keys. Some people really lose their wits when they get scared, so put ’em somewhere safe.
Can I buy my tickets at the door? Can I use credit or debit?
Yes and yes. Cash, all major Credit Cards, and Debit are accepted at the front ticket booth.
Where is Panic Point?
When is the Haunted House open?
Mostly weekends from 9/21 through 11/2. Also, Friday the 13th of December 2019 & March 2020. Here’s our calendar.
Do you offer any special offers or promotions?
ABSOLUTELY! Just visit our Discount Page for the information you seek.
Is there an age limit?
Yes. We do not allow children 8 & under in anything other than the Zombie Shootout & Menacing Maze. We don’t recommend 9 year olds enter, and urge parents to use discretion when considering allowing a 9 or 10 year old to go through.
Do you charge for Parking?
Nope. Park as much as you want for free, but try and carpool on busy nights, if you please.
Can I drop my kids off?
Yes, but we do not provide supervision for children. If Panic Point suspends operations or closes due to weather we are not responsible for sheltering patrons who do not have a vehicle on site, so please watch the weather and make sure a vehicle is available to children who have been dropped off.
When should I arrive?
You do NOT need to arrive right 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 (3 hours on busy nights)
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 9 & 10 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 8 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.
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 and go to the weather page if you want more info. If we are forced to close due to weather you will receive a rain check. You can use that rain check for any other night we are open except the last 2 Saturdays in October (a small up-charge applies to come those nights).
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.
