Here are the scarey reviews

Awesome!!!! Darkness Unleashed is unbelievably fantastic. This is our 2nd time experiencing it, and it was 10 times as good!!! There are a lot of haunted attractions out there, but this one truly takes the cake with its originality. You literally SEE NOTHING and in total darkness are led only by a soft glow of a red glow stick. You blindly make your way through with everyone around you touching, grabbing, yelling, pushing you through! It’s terrifying and hilarious all at the same time!!!! The staff were helpful and professional, and all around it was a great time!!! The quality is certainly there and worth the price and we will absolutely be back next year!!! Thanks for the scares!!!

For over 12yrs I have done my best to get here every year. Between the overwhelming attention to detail in the Haunts, as well as the costume design for the actors it makes you stay on edge. My wife and I did their Bite and Fright last night, awesome food and fun for Halloween enthusiasts. Thank you Barretts. No doubt we will be back again next year.

came out on a Sunday this year. They had a great new off call Fright and Bite forYou get a decent sized meal and two haunted attractions all for 30.00 it was the best offer ever. Only offered on Sunday’s  (offer this year on Thursdays and Sundays) . There is always a long wait when you go to this house. Going on a slower night was a better idea. My wait was shorter. They take pride in giving you the best scary experience that they can. The wait is the worst part but it is worth it once you get inside. The work and detail that goes into this house is amazing. There is a new theme every year I go. It has yet to let me down.

Me and my friend came here for the first time this year. We loved it so much, we went through 4 TIMES in a row. And each time it got better and better. We will be coming here year after year. Everyone is nice, and the actors are amazing. By far the most fun I’ve EVER had. Thank you for an amazing experience!!

This place just gets better every year. Both the house and the second attraction (this year “The Compound”) are very well thought out, with characters that are both fascinating and terrifying. I screamed and jumped and laughed all at the same time – I love it!
