Useful Info
  • Average walk-through is approximately 30 minutes. Walk-through times can be longer or shorter based on speed of group. Those who are scared seem to move a lot faster or slower than average walking speed
  • Wait times vary by day and hour. As it gets closer to Halloween, expect longer wait times due to the popularity of the haunted house
  • The main waitline is indoors. The wait line will extend outside the building during the busy nights. On rainy days, they do have canopies and pop up tents that will be setup to help protect customers from the rain. They still recommend bringing an unbrella or rain poncho for extra protection from the weather
  • Parking is free. There is a large free parking lot across the street from the haunted house
  • 5 (five) people per group can go through at a time
  • Actors will not touch you and you please do not touch them

This was a very good haunted house. The waiting time was very long however.

Went in 2018, and was not gonna go again until I saw a youtube video talking about move and expansion, different, better , refreshed. Absolutely disappointed. It gets two stars because I liked the scenery. Basically was a quiet walk through, there was no one inside to scare me. When there was it was expected. And there was one actor at the end where I swear he purposely pissed himself for days because he reaked of it and so did the area he was in. Burned my nostrils for two days :/ definitely not worth the money and I will try a different venue come 2020.

The staff at evil intentions was beyond accommodating and the set up was great! I had waited in a line not knowing I had to turn in my online tickets for different tickets at the venue and the lady at the front of the line handed me over to someone who walked me where I needed to change the tickets in at and he actually waited for me and walked me back! That was very nice because it was dark out and I was unfamiliar w the area. They had everything under control and the haunted house was awesome !

It was the perfect amount of scary! Not for the claustrophobic though.

Seemed like you were short staffed. Not enough actors. Only 1 chain saw..... really!??! Peops and set ups were very detailed and spooky looking.

The costumes were really good. All the rooms were well thought out. Good value.

This is the BEST haunted house in the world! Hands down!

Park ik ng was over 5 miles away had to bus. The line wasnt moving. I realize you have VIP passes but ya gotta let vip then reg. Then vip then regular or it's all vip. And some.may like it some may not but few rooms weren't scary they grotesque. I prefer the jump scares not to vomit.

Really unique from other haunted houses! Definitely in my top 3!

One of the best haunted houses. Going for 10 years now. You'll love it. VIP tickets can save you about an hour and half wait if you go on a busy night.

Good deal on the VIP passes. The Haunted House was not as good as it has been in the past. More of a bunch of hallways this year.

Slightly disappointed. Went on Halloween and was rushed through due to long lines. It also seemed like a lot of the actors took the day off. Many of the rooms were empty.

Long lines. Horrible loud music. Won't do it again.

The loud heavy-metal music gave everyone a headache. The lines were too long. Did not start on time. Not enough space between groups.

Kids loved it! Definitely recommend

maybe since it was end of the season but only jumped once. i think we took the actors by suprise more than they did to us

What the hell was with the guy at the end with the knives??!!! He came far too close to my daughter's face! I had to push my hand into the space to protect her!!! It was a great time up until the end with that irresponsible jerk!!! The floor was too uneven in places, which caused tripping. Safety first people!



Mon Oct 29 18:36:40 PDT 2018

good actors. grab the fast pass tho!


Michelle Mays Paschke

Excellent Haunted House with lots of scary surprises. Actors were top notch. I definitely recommend the Fast Pass due to long lines.

Solid HH, but the flow wasn't great. Sat nights are tough, but would prefer to wait longer to ensure we don't run into multiple other groups.

GREAT! Scary and fun! Lots of fun!

VIP tickets were worth the money. We arrived at about 1/2 hour before it opened and we were 3rd in line to get in. Walkthrough was great. Very well organized and yes, we did jump several times. Would recommend.

Good value for the price. 2 years in a row and did not disappoint.

first the obtaining of prepaid tickets worked very well. very convenient and easy to use. However at the event itself it was chaos. When we arrived we were told to stand in a line for "prepaid". that made sense. Those that needed to buy tickets were told not to stand in our line but at a different line that appeared to be in the street by the entrance. Those of us that were standing in the prepaid line began to observe that our line wasn't moving and yet those that were standing by the entrance to buy tickets were moving much quicker. When we go up to the front of the outside line you could see why. The 1 person whose job it was to move people into the inside waiting area wasn't looking at anything. she was just allowing people, when signaled or told, to go forward. there were 3 lines, it appeared that the middle line was the VIP line. However she wasn't looking at anything and as a result people were moving over into that line and she was prioritizing the movement from lane 2. Completely ridiculous. We got there at 710pm (opened at 730pm) and di not get into the event until 850pm all because the organization at the entrance was awful. However I will say once in the venue the experience was great but unless they either figure out how to manage the lines be ready to wait a very long time.

Great definitely recommend



Mon Oct 22 10:41:12 PDT 2018

Excellent music and ambiance, much bigger than I expected, and very reasonable price. The actors were all pretty in character and had a sense of humor ‚?? they would join in with people‚??s jokes or photo bomb selfies for an immersive experience. The line is super long if you get regular tickets, so I highly suggest the $10 VIP upgrade at the door ‚?? it bumps you up to the VIP line which is 3 times faster!

2nd year purchasing these tickets and I save so much money for it. 1st year I was sketchy because of how much money I saved but it worked out well and I will continue using it!!



Sun Oct 21 13:25:50 PDT 2018

Gooooooooooooooooooooood stufffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff



Wed Oct 17 03:14:49 PDT 2018

At first the scare was very thrilling but after the first half everything is just the same.



Tue Oct 16 17:05:24 PDT 2018

There were a lot of jump scares which were scary but not too scary, it was fun but a very short haunted house


Tina Vences

Mon Oct 15 17:16:50 PDT 2018

Lots of spooky fun, recommend the VIP pass so you get in quick and arrive 40 min before doors open to be first.


Madison Neal

Mon Oct 15 14:11:23 PDT 2018

Amazing haunted house for a great price!



Mon Oct 15 10:33:57 PDT 2018

Horrifying haunted "house." Amazing actors and an all-around fantastic experience.


Megan Hurley

Mon Oct 15 10:24:05 PDT 2018

really good prices and easy to use.



Mon Oct 15 06:22:10 PDT 2018

VIP line took no more than 15 min. Easy to use voucher at location. Scary haunted house- would recommend turning on AC. Only thing I didn't like was how how i was walking throughout the haunted house.

Very cliche. Also not enough actors. Several of the rooms were empty.

Had a really great time - entertaining acting, sets were spot-on and loved the theme! Sometimes the actors got way too close - didn't bother me personally, but being in the industry that is a real safety concern for the actors themselves. Touch a (real - or very realistic looking) knife to the wrong guest and someone is going to end up getting knocked out.

Scary, I didn't like the tight spaces but otherwise was very good.
