 What should you expect going to The Dent Schoolhouse haunted attraction (or any large haunted house) on a Friday or Saturday in October?   

  • Long lines 
  • Crowds  
  • Heavier Traffic  

We suggest that if “Black Friday” crowds are not your cup of tea, then you should try going on a Thursday or Sunday in October.  You get the same show as you would on a Friday or Saturday, but the crowds are smaller and the ticket cost is cheaper!  For ticket details click HERE.   

Lines to buy tickets can get long and we recommend purchasing online to bypass the ticket line.  You will get a QR code sent to your phone that we can scan at the front gate.  In a hurry?  Then look into buying a Fast Pass.  This includes a separate ticket line that bypasses general admission and gets you in quicker!  Or, the Front of the Line tickets gets you instant access.

The property around the schoolhouse is mainly gravel.  Wear comfortable shoes!   

BRING CASH-  If you choose to purchase your tickets on-site remember to bring cash.  We do have ATMs on-site to help.  Extra cash can be used for food at the concession stand, games in the new Monster Midway, or Dent swag from the Spooky Shop (also located in the Monster Midway).  Credit card is no accepted at all food booths, merchandise, and games.     



Not into crowds?  Arrive early.  When purchasing your ticket online, just choose the time slot that you want to arrive at and purchase.  (ex- If you want to arrive around 8:25pm, choose the 8pm timeslot).

The online box office is always open while the on-site box office will open 30 minutes before opening.

As long as you are in line by 12am on Friday or Saturday you will get to go through the attraction.



 Fall is here!  Which means things can get cold/wet.  Remember to dress accordingly.  There is a concession stand on-site that has cheap/delicious hot chocolate and other warm food like soft pretzels, hot dogs and more*.  There is also the Fall Favorites food truck in the Monster Midway serving up hot cider and fresh warm mini donuts!  



 Parking is free and can be found at Christ Hospital and Children’s Hospital just up the street.  Click HERE FOR PARKING details.   



Have fun!  Remember, you are paying for us to scare you!  Let your guard down and let our monsters do their job!   


*certain warm food items are only sold on Fridays and Saturdays.
