Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Dark Woods: Name Says it All

    I have now visited the attraction in Natchitoches three times: 2016, 2017, and this year. The inside carnival is great (lots of unexpected jumps!) but outside in the “Dark Woods” is where it’s at. I always enjoy myself. Easy to find, super friendly and helpful staff, and lots of scares!

  • Kept you entertained even while in line

    Have been ever year since it opened. Has changed ever year. Not like regular scare parks where it's the same old thing every year.

    Thanks for taking time to leave a review. It lets us improve the show and facility to provide better service each season! Our staff does its dead level best to add, change and improve the quality of the show each year. Thanks for your continuing support!

  • Don't waste your money!

    The trail was so dark you could not see where you were going and stumps and roots were everywhere. My friend fell over a stump and no we were not drinking! Very dangerous trail! The carnival clown house was very cheesy, and the hour and a half wait was crazy!!!! It wasn’t even scary. We drove all the way from East Texas and we were all very disappointed.??????

    We appreciate it when our guests take the time to leave us an online reviews because as it lets us improve and serve others better each and every season. We'd love to respond to you directly, however, an anonymous, unverified review doesn't give us much to work with. Dark Woods takes guest safety very seriously and has an established safety protocol with a retired US military safety mgr assigned nightly walk-through and checklist verification to see that lighting and hazardous areas are addressed prior to opening. The show is not allowed to open if an identifiable issue is found. Additionally, guests who arrive during peak times near the end of October should expect extended wait times at all of our popular attractions. A combination of extended operating dates and hours, specifically sized and timed group releases as well as a FastPass ticket options, all work to move crowds through the attractions as efficiently as can be reasonably expected by seasoned haunt goers. Finally, scary is a very subjective experience. What one guest finds torturous and traumatic, another will find entertaining or even cheesy. We can't win them all, but do make every effort to entertain every guest in some way. We take our genuine customers’ comments seriously. Please contact me, Jason Summerlin, here by email if you are our customer. We can do our best to resolve these issues immediately. Thank you.

  • Fun and scary

    Darkwoods is fun ,sets are great Just not handicapped assesable Wish they offered a cheaper combination pack $40 for bot attractions is a little pricey.

    Single haunt price is $20. The CORRECT ticket price for a combo ticket is $30. Seasonal coupons and special pricing nights offer additional discounts and offer a lower combo ticket throughout the season. FastPass upgrades are an additional charge. The park facility is ADA accessible in most areas with handicapped parking available. The indoor attraction is ADA compliant while the trail (an outdoor area in rough terrain) is not.

  • Not very scary

    I dont know what it was, but this year it just wasn’t that exciting. I didn’t end up getting scared really at all. Last year there were a lot more people following you in the woods and a lot more buildings to walk through. This year it was kind of a dud and kind of lame.

    This is a duplicate FB review. Our operational staff was more than a little concerned for you after having identified your panicked hyperventilation episode while you were here. Glad it wasn't any worse. As with each year, Dark Woods is growing. The number of building sets were increased to as well as personnel to accommodate them. Actors "following you" through the haunt has never been a thing here, unless security sees a potential problem. Hope you feel better!

  • Email Verified Wicked and Scary: This Haunt is a Must to Scream Through

    There's never a dull moment as soon as you enter the gates of Dark Woods Haunted Attraction. Tension builds in the air even as you approach them. Blood drips down the letters of the sign above the gate and lightning flashes through the sky as the peal of thunder surrounds you. Once inside roaming characters set your heart racing as you make your way to this haunt's two attractions: Dead Fall Trail and the Dark Carnival. The trail is a terror filled walk through pitch black woods filled with monsters and sinister spirits that are trapped in the woods. The carnival is a twisted walk through the demented nightmare of one of the haunt's icon characters: Boogey the Clown. This trippy 3D, black light experience will leave you crippled with fear, but wanted to go for another round all at the same time. Unbelievable...I know! The secret to this haunt's success is its ever evolving construction, so every year there's something new for you to experience. It makes repeat visits fun and terrifying...all over again. I highly recommend checking this place out as it's a ten-out-of-ten, must-see attraction!

  • Email Verified Absolutely amazing!

    I enjoy haunted houses and look forward to each new haunted house but it’s always a disappointment. They all seem to be the same boring show, one let down after another. NOT this time. Dark woods is anything but a disappointment! The wait in line was the only thing I didn’t like but it was well worth it! The 3D haunt was excellent and the trail was amazing. I will definitely go back next year. For anyone tired of the same old tired haunted house looking for a really scary fun time dark woods is the place to go!

    We had an amazing experience. Definitely not what I expected but in a good way. Totally worth it. I expected a cheesey experience but this was by far the best haunted scare I've ever had. And boogie was awesome. Go check it out and you will find out who boogie is lol
