Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Had a blast....

    I and family, a group of 6, visited Shocktober and we had a blast. They let us in small groups so that everybody got a true scare experience. The haunted house had some bone-chilling scares and props. The scares were well directed; they used various distractions to disorient you, and the scares come when you’re least expecting them. The kids in the group screamed many times in the house. I don’t wish to reveal too much and spoil your fun. It was an entertaining 40 minutes. Worth the money spent on tickets. I will come again next year.

  • Email Verified Really spooky

    This was my first time at a haunt house and felt it was truly amazing. The haunt house was neatly organized and it looked haunted from all angles. I was not the one to get scared easily. But, this one turned out to be really spooky. The attractions were well organized. The crew put in a lot of hard work to get things going in the right direction. The actors were awesome and quite relentlessly pursue you. They have the perfect timing to throw on the face scares that makes us jump. It was a great evening and we are coming back to have more fun.

  • Llot of laughter

    Entertainment began at the waiting line so it was never boring. The chopping mall was awesome, it was like a carnival. You have beer, pizza, wine and candy to rejuvenate. Actors were spot on. They knew how to turn a situation to scare us. Very spontaneous. There were haunts that was just for fun and evoked a lot of laughter. The finale in the basement is not to be missed. It was a wonderful time with the family and we highly recommend.

  • Horrifying night adventure

    This was absolutely horrifying! The haunted house had scary interiors and the attention to details was amazing. There were few tight spaces and you got to squeeze your way through them.

  • Email Verified Splendid evening

    We got to spend a splendid evening at Shocktober. The set had a spooky vibe. Thanks to the crew for organizing a clean, old school traditional haunts which always has the scary edge to it. The actors in monster makeover were incredibly good. They worked hard to get the scares through us. My 13 year old was thrilled. We had been to a couple of other haunts in the neighborhood, but this turned out to be a winner. Will recommend to anyone.

  • House was stunning

    Came with my mom, dad and sister, and they all had a great time in Shocktober. It was my mom’s first experience in a haunt, and few of the scares freaked her out. The set design and attention to details in the haunted house was awesome. Each room had a different theme and set of scares. Few of the jump scares totally caught me off guard. My sister jumped and screamed more than once. Special effects were impressive. Actors’ costumes/makeup looked realistic. It had few tight spaces. So claustrophobic people should consider that possibility while visiting the haunt. Lines were long, so definitely recommend the fast pass.

  • Loved shockober

    This one is clearly the best haunted house I’d been to in recent times. It had scary sets with creepy interiors, hidden scares and props, special effects, and gory actors trying to scare the daylight out of you. My wife jumped and screamed few times in the house. Scares came from all sides and when you’re least expecting them. Each of the rooms had a different theme, and of course, scares. I recommend this place.

  • Tremendous experience

    It was a tremendous experience. It was my kids first visit to a haunt, and they enjoyed it very much despite the scares and the eerie environment. The lines were a bit long, but the actors entertained us as we waited to go in. They’d used different methods to disorient you, and then scare the crap out of you. My kids screamed few times. I don’t want to give away any more spoilers and ruin your experience. But I will definitely visit this place again, probably next year.

  • Email Verified Damn Scary

    This place was amazing and damn scary!! We visited this place on the eve of my wife’s birthday. Got there just before opening time and we spent around 20 minutes in the queue. Purchased $35 ticket for two attractions and both of them were just amazing. We started with Paxton Manor, a kind of investigation haunt and our guide was super cool. Don’t forget to bring your flashlights as it’s too dark out there inside the room. The best part was all-night event with a dozen of people and carrying equipments to find evidence of ghosts. We were astounded by the special effects and surroundings of each room. The next, was carnival of souls and we really enjoyed the interaction with creepy clowns. Fortunate enough to visit this place. Well recommended.
