Review This Haunt
  • Email Verified Best Scare Anywhere

    The park lines went quick and the scares were great. My daughter and her friend were screaming the whole time so you know we got our moneys worth. The quality of the monsters / scares were some of the best I've seen. Park is spread out so you're never feeling like you're in a crowded area even though lots o' people were there. Concessions were top notch and yummy too!

  • Email Verified Awesome Halloween Fun

    Great haunted theme park throughout! Super long trail full of scares and lots to see. I won’t ruin the surprises we saw. The 3D show has you winding through lots of scares and twists and turns. You feel you’ll never get out! Lol The roaming characters are plentiful and very engaging. Lots of food options and great merch to buy. Also be sure to check out their new casket ride. That’s all I am gonna say about that. Totally worth the extra few bucks. We’ll be back next season!

  • BEST HAUNTED ATTRACTION I HAVE BEEN TO

    It was and absolutely amazing experience. I highly recommend this place. It was terrifying and enjoyable all at the same time. There is so much detail in the haunting environment and the haunted cast! They change it up every year so it’s always different and improving. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

  • 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

    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.
