Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Fun N Frightful

    An excellent fun and frightful experience. Dark Woods haunt is nothing less than fantastic. Everything is perfect for this haunted attraction and pricing is not so high too. Dark Carnival in 3D the theatrical black-light thriller was terrifying as well as fun. While the creepy scares of Dead Fall Trail were really effective and everything worked out very well. We are still confused in deciding which of the two haunts is more better! A Must visit place.

  • Email Verified Absolutely Fantastic

    Dark Woods is probably one of the best haunts in town. It is absolutely fantastic going there. We are still catching out breathe. Unlike many haunted houses, there are many attractions in this place which are unique from one another. I particularly liked the Dead Fall Trail through haunted woods while my friends enjoyed the 3D Carnival. Would recommend this place to anyone!

  • Overpriced & Long Waits

    What a waste of time and money! I am regretting now going to this place. Firstly tickets are too high ($30 for general and $45 for fast pass) for what they are providing. Just two attractions with average scares and too short length; yet they charge so much. It is such a shame on them not providing high quality scares despite making us wait for hours in queue.

  • Super Scary

    Very impressed with the quality of haunts. We visited this place last weekend in a group of four. At first, we took the long, winding, fright-filled trail through the haunted woods. It was damn scary as actors were too good in matching the acts with respect to special effects and progression of acts was superb. The next was 3D carnival and it met our expectations. Lovely setups and amazingly designed special effects instill a heart pounding fear in us. The ticket prices were reasonable. Certainly, A+ rated haunted show and we would love visit again!!

  • Unique Themes

    We have visited a number of haunted houses and this attraction was Amazingly Great! Had a horror vibe and lots of spooks and screams. Never a boring turn and actors did a nice job in utilizing all turns. Liked the incorporation of unique themes. As a group we were really screaming, cringing, running, and laughing at how much they surprised us. Well worth the drive and the admission. We'll be back for sure!

  • Freaky Fun

    I am usually bold and hard to get scared. But for a couple of times I jumped while the maze trail. The scares were expertly arranged. The creepy dolls surprised me. My wife got freaked out by Lumber Jack guy. Character Della was interesting one too. The 3D carnival gave us some nice scares. The line was long but the visit was worth the wait. Ticket rates were cheap. Definitely we will be back.

  • Email Verified Horror Pakage

    I have visited lots of haunted attractions in the past and I should say this Dark Woods was the best. Unique thing about this haunted attraction is that it has village vibe which is missing in most of the attractions. It is a well packed haunted attraction which offers more scares, screams, laughs & fun. Dark Carnival in 3D was something I haven’t seen elsewhere. It was never boring turn. They have surprised us very well and it is worth visiting. We'll be back for sure.

  • Email Verified Darkwoods Is 100% Worth It!

    This was our second year visiting Darkwoods. We live in Shreveport, but do not be deterred by the drive, because it is all part of a fantastic Halloween adventure! Starting with the bus ride from the parking lot, the entire experience is a blast, and only getting better each year. We took our teenage daughters this time and got the fast pass tickets for both major attractions. The 3D Carnival house was mind-bendingly awesome. Wear the glasses they provide for full effect, but even without the glasses it is so much scary fun. The haunted trail too is enhanced with more "I don't want to go in there!" twists and turns. Darkwoods is the best haunt we have ever been to, easily. Professional design, great actors all about the place. Truly a gem for central LA, and as I said earlier, 100% worth it!

  • Save Your Money

    An average haunt. A dismal performance by all actors and 3D Carnival was a very short haunt show. We spent around 1.5 hours in the queue for a mild haunt of less than 10 minutes inside the house. Average costume design and overloaded special effects, it’s like a science exhibition. I hardly got scared or screamed at any moment. Save your money and go somewhere else!!

  • Email Verified Different Experience

    Experiences in Dark Wood haunt was really different from the other haunts I visited this year. Few creepy characters even chased us through the woods. We had the same experience in the maze too… My wife screamed loud when they got close. My kid’s favourite was the 3D carnival. Performance of the actors stood out. Sets seems to be realistic while the props and decorations were perfect. For me, the scariest part was the trail through the woods. Staff were helpful. I recommend this place.

  • 3D Show Really Amazing

    I with my family went to the Dark Wood haunt to celebrate Halloween. It was just awesome. Actors were great. The 3D carnival really amazed me. It was pretty scary too. Clowns made my wife scream. The long walk through the dark woods really frightened me. Creepy characters behind the woods could startle you anytime with their makeup and screams. The maze was very creepy... had some scary props and weird characters hiding in the cover of corn stalks. We are planning to come again.

  • Email Verified Lots of fun!!

    We had a GREAT time!! The haunted trail was my favorite. The actors were outstanding and attention to detail, superb! I would recommend entering the trail with no more than 2 at a time. Way scarier of an experience in small numbers!!

  • Email Verified Best time i had being scared

    Haunted woods is amazing. The characters are great and very frightning but in the same time they take pictures with everyone. I loved hiw they have monsters walking through the woods just popping up scaring people. The best was when a lady went use the port a potty and a monster walked passed and hit it. She came out running and did not stop till she crossed the spooky bridge. A bridge that has a flickering light pole made it even more spooky .the magician was truly amazing i wish more people would of stopped to watched him. The haunted trail was truly haunted with screams in the night and the clown house was amazing effects. My mom went in as a scaredy cat and had a blast just watching people scream .thank you for purting on an fun haunted house rhat is npt the same as everyone elses. I will recommend this to anyone.
