What is the Behind the Scenes Tour at Dent?

Ever wonder what it takes to make an award-winning haunted house tick?!?  Take a private guided tour as the creators of The Dent Schoolhouse take back the curtains and allow you to see the inner workings of a haunted attraction.  This tour is taking place before the haunt opens so crew members will be working around the haunt as you are guided through.  A brief look at the makeup room, costuming, and backstage areas are included!  See why The Dent Schoolhouse is known for its detailed sets and scenic storytelling.  There will be designated areas to take photos.
