On-Site/Day of

It depends. During our September hours, the wait is usually very short. The beginning of October, there is typically a short wait, maybe 30 minutes on a weeknight. As it gets closer to Halloween, specifically on a Friday or Saturday night, the wait can be long. The closer you come to opening time (7:00 pm) the shorter the wait. We do offer a Fast Pass that offers a much shorter wait and an Skip the Line pass has no wait!

There is plenty of FREE street parking in the area, as well as a paid on-site parking lot. Please be respectful of neighboring businesses and be aware of all posted parking and no parking signage.

Part of the waiting area is inside the haunted house and part is outside on a covered dock area. On busier nights the line will extend outside where there is no covering.

It's really difficult to give an answer to this question- some groups run right through, while others take their time. It really depends on how well you can handle the fear! The 13th Floor Haunted House is the largest and longest indoor haunted attraction in STATE! It’s safe to say it’s pretty big, so you should be in there long enough to get plenty scared!

Yes. We do our best to be handicap accessible inside the attraction! There are a couple areas that may have to be by-passed; we provide by-passes for all guests that cannot go through certain rooms of the haunted house. Please make sure that you check in with an Event Staff employee and they will help you through the house!

No. Actors will not touch you. Incidental and unintentional contact may occur.

No. Please be respectful and do not touch them.

Who Should Attend

No. However, due to the graphic nature, it is not recommended for small children, toddlers or babies. We have had young children go through and have a great time and adults who go through and are in tears! You're the parent- you be the judge. A good rule of thumb is: if you wouldn't bring your child to a PG-13 rated movie, it's probably not a good idea to bring them to a haunted house.

We do not recommend pregnant women to go through the haunted house. We suggest calling your OBGYN and/or Physician to discuss the situation with them.

We do not recommend people with asthma go through the haunted house. We suggest calling or emailing your Physician to discuss the situation with them since we have numerous fog machines throughout the haunted house. If your doctor thinks you’ll be fine, we definitely recommend bringing your inhaler or another device that may help you breathe better. We also don't recommend people with epilepsy, heart issues and pregnant women go through the haunted house as well. We just want everyone to have a safe time.

Sorry, we know dogs are welcome at most places in CITY, however, it's just too darn scary for our furry friends at the 13th Floor Haunted House. They would probably be more comfortable at home with the other scaredy cats...err humans.
