Know Before You Go

  • Make sure to purchase a VIP ticket, which allows you to skip the long lines on busy nights and get into the haunt much faster than with a regular General Admission ticket. There is always a certain amount of wait time, but a VIP ticket can cut that time in half or more, depending on the night and your arrival time for that evening.
  • Outside take as many photos as you’d like with monsters and other entertainers - feel free to share them on social media! Grab a snack and drink. While inside, no food, drinks, bottles, recording devices, flash photography or flashlights are allowed.
  • No masks or hand held items are allowed inside.  If you come in costume please leave your mask and accessories in your car.
  • Mistreating any House of Shock performer will result in you being asked to leave the property.
  • Wearing heels or flip flops is discouraged as they are they shoes we find the most in our lost and found.
  • If you purchase a VIP ticket in advance you get to skip the line at the Box Office all together, plus skip the line to get into the haunted house!
  • If you have purchased your VIP ticket on line, or your CostCo General Admission ticket, do not stop at the House of Shock Box Office Trailer when you arrive. Instead, proceed down the street from the box office with your tickets (no need to exchange them at the box office) and go directly to the event entrance. There are two lines marked VIP Admission and General Admission. PLEASE arrive 15 minutes before closing times that are listed here; .this will guarantee your entrance into the event for that evening without issue.
  • If you purchased your tickets in advance, expect to feel good about that decision as you pass the line at the box office and proceed to our entry lines.
  • The show starts as soon as you arrive, while you wait to enter expect to be entertained by monsters and other performers.  Feel free to take pictures with them, they love the spotlight.
  • If you come on a off-peak night (typically a weekday night) expect there to be space in between you and the group in front of you (unless of course the group in front of you walks slower than a pack of zombies).  Significantly less people attend on weekdays, therefore, we are able to offer a much better pace/spacing for traveling through the haunted houses. This changes on weekday nights the closer we get to Halloween.
  • If you come on a peak night or on one of the busiest nights of the year expect an action packed and terrifying experience with an energy like no other. But also expect there to be little to no spacing between you and the group in front of you.  Our attractions are some of the highest attended in the nation and as such are designed to be fun and scary regardless of the size of the crowd walking through them.  There are special direction and adjustments made to accommodate larger numbers of patrons on weekends and busier nights.
  • If it's important for you to have a more "alone" feeling at the haunted house, come on a weekday. If you enjoy the energy and excitement that is fueled by more people, attend on a weekend. Either way, we are confident that you will enjoy your experience!
Warning! Event may be too intense for young children and is not recommended for children under the age of 12
