A few memorable comments from our guests.

Below are a few of the memorable  comments left by our guests at the EXIT poll.

The Guy that was cut up on the table aked me to help him, I couldnt help him, Im not a paramedic…. He REALLY needed some help.

The Clown Room is CRAZY! I LOVED IT!

Im Peeing, Im peeing.

Lost one of our group due to fear before making it inside, then werent sure the others were going to make it into the other 2 haunted houses, because they were exhausted, out of breath, scared!

The Girl that had a nervous breakdown, and kept peeing her pants over and over and freaking out every time it happened really set the mood for us.

I loved how many Live actors you have, there are so many people stashed in every nook and cranny. IT WAS GREAT!

We peed from laughing so hard at my husband screaming like a little girl.

The interaction between the actors and guest was great!

Your actors  werent  just acting out a role, they were living and breathing every bit of it. The Costuming, The customer interactions was GREAT!

We go to haunted houses all the time , we love this stuff, BUT You guys have so much detail, every possible detail was so thought out. YOUR COSTUMES, PROPS, ACTORS,DESIGN. CHARACTERS, MONSTERS. There was just so much detail! We LOVED it!

This is some creepy stuff, we dont have stuff like this in Oklahoma.

You Guys have the Best Haunted House EVER!

The Lady with the Axe made me sh*t my pants… IM SO SORRY!

Cant please everybody

With the good there is always bad, and we have learned that you cant please everybody, every time, BUT a general complaint heard thru-out the haunt industry is ” We caught up to a group and it ruined it for us”  DarkSyde Acres Spaces our Guests by over 400 feet walking distance, All of our actors are trained to scare forward, Unfortunately there is No controlling some guests who either run all the way through the haunted house, bunching up with another group, or the guests that refuse to move forward after being scared, thus again causing a Guest pileup. DarkSyde refuses to ever become a CONGA LINE type of Attraction, and works hard to prevent the few incidents where guests bunch up, and will continue to strive to eliminate it all together.


DarkSyde Acres Haunted House would like to Thank each and everyone of our Fans, that made the trek out to the DarkSyde and help us have our best season ever! We appreciate your support every year, and look forward to scaring the crap out of you in 2013 and beyond.
