What is the largest group that you’ll allow through at one time?

Ideally we like to send visitors through in groups of 2-4. Anything larger robs you of the experience and is much less scary. If a customer insists by special request for 9 or 10 in a group… then we will do it – but we absolutely don’t recommend it. The typical max we allow in at one time is 8. Again, we recommend you branch out of that comfort zone and go through in smaller groups.

What time do the crowds start forming?

We open on most nights at 7pm. Lines form later and move more quickly earlier in the season, but as it gets closer to Halloween – the crowds get larger and the line forms much earlier.

How long are the lines?

We move the lines along very quickly, however the closer it gets to Halloween, the longer the lines are. If you are not interested in waiting in line, you can avoid the ticket booth line by purchasing General Admission Tickets, or you can completely skip the lines with Fast Pass Tickets.

How long does it take to walk through your haunted attraction?

After purchasing tickets, you must wait in line to enter. Once inside, you proceed at your own pace – so the length of your experience varies from group to group. The average walk through time is around 30-40 minutes.

Do you charge for parking?

No, we do not charge for parking. You may encounter wandering creatures the moment you leave your car, so be on your guard!

What does the “No Scare Medallion” do?

The No Scare Medallion keeps monsters from scaring you and pursuing you. In the case of a child wearing it, it repels the monsters and gives your child the power over them.

Will we still be scared and able to fully enjoy Madworld if we bring someone with us who wants to wear a No Scare Medallion?

Yes! Our monsters are trained to give the rest of the group the perfect scare and experience while staying away from the person wearing the No Scare Medallion.

Can we be thrown out of the park for any reason?

Yes. We do not allow foul language, pushing, touching, vulgar behavior, weapons of any kind, alcohol, drunkenness, etc. We have a list of rules that must be adhered to for your own safety. Violation of these rules will usually bring a warning and then being asked to leave without a refund.

Are the monsters allowed to touch you?

The actors in MADWORLD will not touch you; however, they do get very close. Occasionally you may brush up against their costumes or props. You may also come into contact with some of the sets.

Are there any age restrictions?

No. We actually encourage families and children to come. Our haunt can get very intense so parents use your discretion. You can stop and exit at any point during the haunts if you get too frightened to continue. Our haunts are not for the faint of heart.

No. A new ticket is required for each visit.

Can we take flash photos of your haunted houses?

Photography of any sort is not allowed INSIDE the haunts. However, you are welcome to take pictures and videos outside of the haunts and in the grounds area. Our actors working outside will often pose for pictures with you.

Is it scary?

    Are there real tight spaces at any point? Asking for a very claustrophobic person! Wondering if it’s worth coming. Enjoy being scared but a whole new level of anxiety and panic sets in with tight spaces. What do you recommend?

    • Madworld Haunted Attractions comments on Frequent Questions
      Madworld Haunted Attractions

      Yes, there are some tighter spaces, but nothing extremely closed in. If you decide at any point that it is too much, someone in management will escort you off. We have had people with claustrophobia come in many times and they were okay.

    How much exactly are the No Scare Medallions? This was not specified. Also, I have read on your frequently asked questions that some people can not wear costumes, though would that be allowed if we are dressing up as a group since there will be children with our group?

      The “No Scare Medallions” are $5.00 each if purchased separately.
      As far as costumes go, we do not allow other people other than our actors to where costumes (with the exception of Halloween). This policy was put in place for the safety of everyone. Thank you.

      We usually don’t allow over 8 max. For a group of 10, we would most likely split the group in half or divide it another way. The bigger the group, the less the experience is.

    I’m very excited to visit, but confused. I thought that you paid one price and it includes all HAUNTED attractions(house). When reading some of the reviews they spoke of different escape rooms, wood trail,zombie trail and different rooms in which they had picked to complete and one guy mentioned hopes of getting to come back to complete another. PLEASE EXPLAIN.

    • Madworld Haunted Attractions comments on Frequent Questions
      Madworld Haunted Attractions

      Jennifer, thank you for your comment. As we write this, Madworld has been established for 7 years. Within this time frame, we’ve opened many different attractions. Our goal each year is to be bigger and better, which is why our attractions never stay the same. The reviews you’ve mentioned are from previous attractions (the zombie shoot and escape rooms). Instead of dividing our haunted attraction up into multiple tiers for three or four different prices, we now sell admission to Madworld (the whole thing – along with extras) for one price. For your convenience, you can view our ticket pricing guide here. Thanks again!
