Review This Haunt
  • Outstanding performance

    Had a great time with friends! We laughed, screamed and run on several instances. There were lots of unexpected twists and turns on our way and some made us really spooky. The actors can be seen everywhere including the waiting lines and their performance has been outstanding. They also provide a stand for food and drinks. Thanks to the entire team.

  • Email Verified Definitely recommend

    I and my BF drove for about an hour to reach Shocktober. The lines were long, but the actors kept us entertained. The haunted house was well appointed in terms of scares and props. I am keeping it as vague as possible to avoid any spoilers. But one thing I can vouch for is the acting performance of the actors’. They just killed it. Definitely recommend this place.

  • Super scary

    This place was super scary. Few actors tried to scare us while waiting in the line. The set design of haunted house was impressive with lots of attention to details. Excellent props and scares as well. I was startled off my feet couple of times. Great customer service, and the staff were friendly and helpful as well. Certainly a must go.

  • Incredible experience!

    Incredible experience! As a person who loves horror and scare themed attractions, Shocktober ranks top in my list. Having the RIP pass is a great option to skip the long waiting lines. Very well decorated. The attractions were great especially some of the rooms were well themed and had some really unique scare factors. Doesn’t disappoint.

  • Email Verified Scare the crap out of you...

    I went with my family, and was definitely amazed. It used unique methods to confuse and disorient you, before scaring the crap out of you. I jumped on few instances. Highly recommend.

  • Best haunted house

    This is the best haunted house we have ever found. The effects were spectacular to say the least. There were few tight spaces that someone claustrophobic might find difficult to negotiate. Worth the visit.

  • Email Verified Very Scary

    It was our second visit to the Shocktober. I with my GF went to the house and we had a great time. The actors wandering outside of the house and trying to scare people waiting in the line was something new for us. It helped the visitors from getting bored while waiting in the line. Saying about the house, the place was very amazing as well as frightening. I haven’t ever seen such elaborate customs and rooms in one haunted house. The clowns were very scary. The Paxton Manor was very terrifying to say the least. It had some creepy characters I’d ever seen. The basement was equally terrifying. Actors have all done their job well. I can’t wait to go back.

  • Email Verified Gone Crazy...

    Yes, this house was very haunted and scary and it will scare us to death but that is exactly why we have been here. I am pretty sure that all the haunt lovers like me are going to love this house. The basement where they had the Carnival of the Souls was the scariest and the monsters or the ghosts were so creepy and real. The makeup and costumes were perfect. Even the Paxton Manor was equally scary. I loved that each and everything in the house had been given such detail. The hidden scares in the house were just unexpected. I am going to recommend this place to all of my friends.

  • Scary Night

    This place was recommended to me by one of my friend and it was really awesome. I and my girlfriend went to the Shocktoober pretty early and the crowd was less. But I am pretty sure that this place gets crowded soon. The waiting line was also kept entertained by the actors which was real good. The house looked very haunted and real frightening. The Paxton Manor was the scariest of all as was the basement. Even the clowns have done a good job in scaring us. I am very soon coming back for sure.

  • Really Haunted

    One of the most favorite of our friends’ gang is Shocktober which has been improving over the years and is only getting better. Each and every corner of the house has got some real good scares which can scare you to the last breath. The Carnival of Souls located at the basement of the house was deadly haunted as there are creepy clowns more resembling ghosts. The actors are very good and don’t spare anyone. The staff was also friendly. I am sure to be back again next season.

  • Email Verified Lots of Hidden Scares

    One of the best haunted houses I’d visited of late. Definitely all haunted house lovers need to visit this place. Monsters and the ghouls in the basement were very frightening. There were creepy characters at every corners, ready to scare you out of your wits. For me, the scariest part was the Carnival of Souls. Try to take part in the Last Ride during the visit. My GF jumped couple of times in the Paxton Manor. Attention to detail in the house deserve praise. There were lots of hidden scares too. Recommend this place.

  • Email Verified A Scary Shock

    Shocktober has to be one the best haunted houses as they don’t spare you even a minute and you are continuously getting scared. Wow! it was awesome. The actors are so real and full of energy. This house has a surprise at every corner of it where you can expect any creepy creature to jump out at you from anywhere. I am sure to go back here again and recommend this to all of my friends.
