Is it Scary?

Yes! It is very scary!


Do you offer refunds?

No. Just like sporting events and other similar events, there are absolutely no refunds.


Is it open if it rains?

Yes. We’re open rain or shine.


If I enter the haunted house and get too scared, what do I do?

If you get too scared, stay calm and tell the actor in the room and they will escort you outside. Please note, like sporting events and large attractions, we do not give refunds under any circumstances.


Is there an age limit?

There is no age limit. However, due to the intensity of our show, it is not recommended for children under the age of 12.


Do I have to sign a waiver?

You are not required to sign a waiver with the exception of Glowstick night. Glowstick night is full contact and you are required to sign a waiver or have a parent or guardian sign one.


What is the Glowstick night?

This special event is a complete blackout of the attraction where you have to find your way through with the aid of only a glow stick.  No show lighting is turned on, there is limited staff, and no animations.  You will be touched (but not harmed).  Safety equipment available at the door.  Waiver must be signed prior to entry. This is an 18 or older event.  A parent or guardian’s signature is required for anyone under the age of 18 to attend.


How many people go through at a time?

We encourage smaller groups because it makes it a better experience for our guests and our actors.  A group size of six or less at a time is what we recommend.


Can I stay with my group?

Just as previously stated, your experience will be better with a smaller group.  So, if you came with a large group, you will be divided. You will, however, remain with your group throughout the attraction.


What should I wear?

The Factory of Terror does not have heating or air conditioning so please dress for the current weather conditions.  Sandals, heels, or any other open-toed shoes are strongly discouraged due to the uneven surfaces and tripping hazards throughout the attractions. You may come in contact with dirt and theatrical blood, so please wear clothes that can get dirty.


Can I wear a costume?

You are free to dress for the Halloween season as you please. We just ask that you do not wear any masks or bring any props with you.


Can pregnant women go through?

Guests enter at their own discretion. Factory of Terror is not responsible for injury. We suggest calling your OBGYN and/or physician to discuss the situation with them


Is it handicap accessible?

Yes. There are a few scenes that aren’t accessible, but the majority of the show is!


Can the actors touch you?

Our actors are not to intentionally touch or harm any guests. You may, however, come into contact with our actors while they are scaring or jumping out. Our queue line actors/stalkers (roaming actors not inside the houses themselves) may possibly touch you while interacting, but you will not be harmed.


Do I have to pay to park?

General parking is FREE on Thursdays, Sundays, and before 7:30 pm on Fridays and Saturdays.  General parking is $5.00 per vehicle after 7:30 on Fridays and Saturdays. Reserved parking in the Blue Lot is $20 and includes a coupon for 10% OFF merchandise and one free beverage at concessions.


What time does the line start forming?

Lines start forming between 30 and 60 minutes prior to the box office opening. On our busy nights it is best to show up early to avoid long lines. The box office will open and we will begin selling tickets 30 minutes prior to the listed opening of the attractions.


How long is the wait to get in?

Fridays and Saturdays are our busiest nights. You may experience wait times from 1 to 3+ hours. If you are in a hurry, FastPasses are available to get to the front of the lines for an extra $10 or you can come on Sundays for shorter lines.


Is there indoor waiting?

Yes. We have two full rooms of indoor waiting. On our busiest nights of the season, the lines may stretch outside, but once inside the building, you will not have to go back outside until you’ve completed the haunted house.


How long does it take to get through the Factory of Terror?

You will be getting scared for approximately an hour. This does not count the wait times. The time it takes to get through depends on how fast you walk… or run!


What time does it close?

We sell tickets until 10:30pm on select Thursdays (see calendar for all dates), until 11:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and until 8:30pm on Sundays. However, the Factory does not close until all ticketed guests are through the attraction.  If you are IN LINE at the box office at the time it closes, you will be able to purchase a ticket.


Can I take pictures?

There are multiple free photo-ops. You are welcome to take pictures while in line, but once inside the haunted house, you may not take any pictures or videos of our actors, scenes, or props.  If you are seen taking photos or videos of any kind, our show managers will ask you to cease doing so.

Yes. We use theatrical fog to create many effects in our shows.


Are there strobe lights?

Yes. If you have problems with epilepsy, please talk to your doctor or refrain from entering the show.

Can we be thrown out for any reason?

Yes. Any dangerous or offensive behavior is grounds to be thrown out. Whether or not you will be thrown out is at the discretion of the Factory of Terror staff.

What can’t we bring inside the show with us?

You cannot bring any weapons of any sort into the attraction with you. You may not wear any mask or face covering or bring props of any kind.

No. We work hard to update and make changes every year. We promise we will never be exactly the same two years in a row.
