ScuRRyFace Haunt Reviews "You walk into a giant barn and immediately the actors start coming for you. They seriously waste no time. From there you weave through several different scenes from the home, nasty swamps that could've fooled me for being a real one, a crashed bus and even a backwoods carnival that had quite possibly the coolest scare in the trail."

Florida Haunted Houses "Best haunt I've been to in many years! First time and now lifetime customer! The laser swamp area was off the chain. I got to scare people in the swamp on a backstage tour. Can't wait for next year!" READ MORE

We enjoyed this very much! Its low key and not very large. But, the haunted attractions are scary and the actors interact very well. This is not for people who like the larger places, like Universal. This is more for people who like a home town atmosphere, simple yet very scary scenery and outdoor haunted areas. This was our first time here and we will be back. We also went to Halloween Horrors on this trip, and we actually liked this better.

THE BEST! This is by far the best haunted house I have ever been to. I plan on going again next year. It was so creative and long. I think I was in there for about 15 min. So awesome!!!!!

An English Visit  My wife and I decided to visit some of the local Haunted Houses whilst on holiday in Florida (to add to the ones at Universal). A Petrified Forest was easily the best independant house we visited by far. Great sets and great actors, although I do feel for the little girl sat in the garden who screamed at everyone who passed.

If I'm fortunate to be in Florida for another Halloween, I will definitely attend this house again!

Good Inexpensive Fun  I went the second day it was open. For 13 dollars and a minimal wait time it was an amazing experience. For not being professionally made it was very impressive. I really liked it and I want to go back. There were, of course, the obvious scares where someone jumps out at you but also they played on all types of fear, but it isn't too much either. It is self guided but easy to figure out. They sent you in about six people at a time. My group spent about fifteen to twenty minutes in the house at least. Wear closed toed shoes because there are outside parts and an occaisional root. It was fun!
