Sunday nights we are open from 7pm-11pm. Last ticket sold and/or accepted each night is 15 minutes before closing.
Do your attractions have security?
Yes! Fear the Woods uses Henry County Sheriff’s Department for Security and each patron that walks on our property has to go through a metal detector. Security cameras are also placed throughout the facility to ensure employee and patron safety.
Can the monsters touch us?
NO! The actors of Fear the Woods will never intentionally touch you. Because of the closeness of their working conditions and your unknown reaction, incidental contact may occur. The same applies to you, do not intentionally touch the actors, monsters, or sets. By doing so you will be ejected from the attraction by the Henry County Sheriff Department without a refund
What CAN’T we bring with us inside your haunted houses?
No pets! No weapons! No alcoholic beverages! No cameras! No smoking! No vaping! No laser pointers or flashlights! No food or beverages! No large bags and/or bookbags!
I’m too scared! Can I drop people off and pick them back up when they are finished?
Yes! However, keep in mind that we are not a baby sitting service. We do have officers throughout the property for safety, but loitering is PROHIBITED.
I’m too scared! Do I have to pay if I just want to walk around, but not actually go in the attractions?
Yes, you have to pay admissions. Our admission’s policy is equivalent to other entertainment businesses. Once you walk through our gates you are being entertained and using our services; therefore, you have to pay admissions.
For whatever reason (too scared or ejected by sheriff department ), I am unable to go through the rest of my haunt experience. Can I have a refund?
NO REFUNDS, ALL SALES ARE FINAL!
If you and/or a child can’t make it through an attraction, leave early or you did not follow a rule and/or policy of Fear the Woods and get ejected, you will not get a refund. ALL SALES ARE FINAL
Do you close if it rains?
Depends on the severity, but unfortunatley, Yes.
Sometimes we may postpone opening, close early or not open at all. 75% of Fear the Wood’s Attractions are outdoors and muddy wet customers and/or actors is never a good thing. We keep a close eye on the weather forecasts each day to determine if we need to close for the night or not and we typically announce if we are going to be open or closed by 5:00 pm the day of. In the event of inclement weather, Please check our Website and/or Social Media Platforms for the most up-to-date changes on our Open Status. If you pre-purchased a ticket for that night online, your ticket will be honored on another night.
Am I going to get dirty?
Fear the Woods is predominantly an outdoor event. Part of being outside is experiencing dirt, mud, water, cold/hot weather and occasionally bugs (non of which we can control). Our best advice is to wear tennis shoes and not your finest clothing.
Do you have special events?
Yes! Opening night on Friday, September 27th is Ladies Night (50% off combo deal). The following Friday, October 4th is Military and First Responder’s Night (50% off combo deal with badge). Every Sunday night we are honoring a different High School for Spirit Night. Bring your student ID and receive a discount for admissions and help raise money for your school. Be sure to regularly check out our social media platforms for new planned special events that we will include as we add them to our schedule.
I bought a ticket online and the gate is closed because of reaching max capacity. What do I do?
Every year we add more spaces to prevent this from happening, but on occassion this unfortunate event occurs. No worries though, you will definitely be able to experience Fear the Woods that night. By purchasing online, you have GUARANTEED your admission to our attraction and we will accomodate to you. We typically close the gates and let people out for about 15-30 minutes and then reopen our gates once we have enough parking spaces. PLEASE be patient with us. The BEST thing for you to do is wait and check Facebook for real time updates. There are a few restaurants and fast food places 5 minutes away on 155 if you need to kill a little time. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
I DID NOT buy a ticket online and the gate is closed because of reaching max capacity. What do I do?
By NOT purchasing online, you run the unfortunate risk of not attending Fear the Woods on a high volume night. The BEST option is to wait 30 minutes to see if the gates are going to reopen to customers without a ticket and check our Facebook page for real time updates, but there is a possibility that we are unable to take general admissions for the remainder of the night. We typically close the gates and let people out for about 15-30 minutes and then reopen our gates once we have enough parking spaces. PLEASE be patient with us. There are a few restaurants and fast food places 5 minutes away on 155 if you need to kill a little time. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If I get there 5 minutes before closing time, can I still come in?
No, to be fair to our actors we stop accepting/selling tickets at 11:45pm on Friday and Saturday nights and 10:45pm on Sunday nights.
I’m still in line waiting to get into the last attraction at 12:05 am. Are you going to close?
The attractions are kept running until the last victim has exited. We stop selling/accepting tickets 15 minutes before closing but the shows keep running until the lines are gone.
Is there a way to avoid the long lines?
Yes!! Purchase our VIP ticket and jump to the front of the line to meet your doom.
Can we take photos or film inside of your haunted attraction?

I lost something at Yule Forest. Help!

We do offer “Monster Protection” for people that are too scared to go through the haunt. Please request when going through admissions.
