Last Updated: Wednesday, 31 May 2017

Click a question below to reveal the answer.
    1. Visit our calendar page for details. Box office closes 15 minutes before closing. Online sales end at midnight prior to show date.

    1. Visit our ticketing page for details. Special events and large group discounts are available.

    1. General admission includes one-time admission to all haunted attractions. VIP admission includes one-time admission via the faster VIP line. We highly recommend VIP tickets later in the season to cut down on the wait time.

    1. Yes. We like to think it is scary, and we are sure you will agree. Everyone's level of scary is different. Some people are afraid of ghosts, others fear zombies. Some people jump and scream when people pop out from unexpected places, others fall to the floor in a catatonic state when a crazed doctor comes at them with a butcher knife and a severed leg. Others are fine through all of these experiences and then go white and speechless when confronted with high-pitched, demented clowns. We cater to all flavors of fear.

    1. We recommend that guests be 12 and older. For younger and more sensitive guests, we recommend our family-friendly night (with less-scary actors who hand out trick-or-treat candy) on Sunday, October 29th from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM.

    1. How fast can you run from a chainsaw-wielding maniac? Just kidding. We do not recommend running. Going through the haunt can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on your pace, the size of your group, and the adrenaline coursing through those around you.

    1. We recommend coming early in the season and early in the evening for the shortest lines.

    1. We are a bit of both. You will start inside, and then you will go through a series of indoor and outdoor mazes (so bring a jacket and maybe an umbrella). Expect cold and possibly wet weather, with some dirty or muddy paths; so dress appropriately.

    1. Only once or twice by our freaky clown baby. Other than that, you're safe. Do your best not to touch the actors or props, and they will do their best not to touch you.

    1. Yes! Nile Nightmares is open rain or shine. We recommended bringing a jacket and an umbrella on cold and wet nights. On nights with severe weather, we may close early. Call before arriving.

    1. Cameras and cell phones are allowed ONLY in the queue. All cell phones, cameras, and flashlights MUST be turned off BEFORE entering the haunted attraction. Anyone caught using a camera, cell phone, or flashlight inside the haunted attraction may have it confiscated.

    1. We do not allow alcohol, weapons, vulgar behavior, pushing, or foul language. Smoking and vaping are allowed ONLY in the parking lot. No touching of the actors or props. Absolutely NO use of cell phones, cameras, or flashlights inside. You may be removed from the haunted attraction if you appear intoxicated, touch, damage, or injure any of the props or actors, or show signs of excessive behavior.

    1. Yes! The Nile Shriners have a concession stand near the exit which serves favorites such as popcorn, cotton candy, and snow cones. We also have a different guest food truck each night serving fun and unique delights to be enjoyed in the food court area. For individuals 21 and over, we also have a beer garden with a rotating selection of Northwest brews to enjoy.

    1. No, we do not issue refunds once you purchase a ticket.

    1. We are always looking for talented volunteer actors, builders, and make-up artists. To join our team and become involved in our scary fun events throughout the year, visit our Volunteers page for details.

    1. Just because Halloween is over doesn’t mean our monsters should have to hibernate until next year. This year, we’re summoning our evil elves and crazed creatures to come out and play for two weeks in December. Join us for some horror-day cheer and see if you’re on Krampus’ naughty list this year. Stay tuned for dates and times.
