Review This Haunt
  • Quite an average haunt

    I found Darkside quite an average haunt.. it had some scares, but not at a level I’d expected it to be. The actors tried their best to scare me.. the costumes/makeup were OK, if not great. I would not recommend this place to people who want to be really startled off their feet.

  • Email Verified Not frightened much

    I and wife visited the haunt.. she was not frightened much.. the scare factor was average at best.. some of the actor’s costumes did not invoke any fear.. Ticket rates also a tad expensive I thought.

  • Email Verified Really insane scares

    This place is really insane. Every year they try to bring new additions and changes which are really cool. Visitors will never feel bored by the same old stuffs. Asylum was extremely scary compared to Clown town and hayride. House and trail was real life experience. Overall I am impressed with all the attractions. This place must be on the top of your must visit Halloween list.

  • Email Verified Enough scares to leave your heart pounding

    I was visiting the place after a long time.. lots of things have changed.. excellent makeup and set up to say the least. The gut wrenching magic show was one highlight. The haunted attraction has enough scares to leave your heart pounding. Actors all did a great job. The staff was friendly too.

  • Best for kids

    My kids enjoyed the haunt.. but I found it to be pretty ordinary.. nothing much scary to startle the adults.

  • Email Verified Clowns Town and Slaughter House were intense

    It was an amazing experience from start to finish. Good ambience and friendly atmosphere. Trail was wicked scary and I had to run most of the time. Clowns town and slaughter house were unbeatable in scaring visitors. The $20 ticket rate for all 5 attractions is really cheap. Their hot chocolate is very delicious I really loved it.

  • Don't miss the magic show and games

    The dark trail is so spooky.. you can’t say when an actor jumps into scare you. Actors and their makeup is top notch. The magic show and games are not to be missed. Food and drinks were fine. Ticket rates were reasonable as well. Check it out if you are a fan of haunted attractions.

  • Email Verified Wonderful terror treat

    Darkside Estates offers a wonderful terror treat to all its visitors. If you are ready for a fear feast then come out for the perfect location. Maze at dark really feels spooky. I enjoyed my time at the Clown town and the clown makeup was superb. Slaughter house and fright trail was like horror movie scenes, when actors chased people and the group started to run in panic it really added to the atmosphere. Overall it was my best Halloween night out.

  • Email Verified The Best Slaughterhouse in NC

    Truly, one of the best slaughterhouses I’ve ever visited. Got the fast pass and skip the queue to save around an hour. All four attractions are very unique, especially the clown house and slaughterhouse. All characters played their role magnificently, especially the butcher guy. Couldn’t find the chainsaw guy, might be I was lucky. Eateries were available at decent cost. Certainly, a great haunted house to experience horror and fun.

  • Email Verified Freaking Scary

    Freaking scaring! Amazing place to experience multiple haunts. We purchased the $20 admission ticket and spent around an hour in the queue to get into the real actions. We started with the Slaughterhouse and it was super scary. Tons of scares around every corner of each room and hanging fleshes of animals and humans were indeed frightening that one of my friends started running. Also, the chainsaw guy was super cool and did a nice job in tolling us for a long. The other attractions were fright trail, insane asylum, clown town and mayhem hayride; all of them were designed in synchronization with background theme and left us strangling with fear. It was a great evening spent here with full of horrors and entertainment. Highly recommended!!

  • awesome

    this place is the best. Went saturday night and it was awesome. Normaly only get scared just a couple of time but this place scared me and my crew all the way through and we are full grown adults men and women lol. I like that it is a trail and haunted houses all in one. You get everything at this attraction. We drove an hour to get their and it was well worth the trip. Not just a little short spook but we spent about and hour and 45 minutes and like i said well worth it and we will be back. This family has did a fantastic job with this attraction your the best.

  • Great!!

    All I can say is WOW!!! It does not look like much from the parking lot but once you get in there it is big. The trail keeps going and going. The houses looked great. And the actor’s makeup looked great and keeps you going the entire time. This must be a family doing this because there were people of all ages working. And they all look like they are having fun. This was my 3rd year going there. And every year it gets better. I drive about an 2 hours to get there. I live in the Greensboro area. (we have a good one up here to Woods of Terror but I think there both the best in the state) And I look forward to it ever year. You can tell they send a lot of time and money setting these houses up. Very detailed!! I have been to haunted houses all over NC. And there are some good onces out there. But I put Darkside in the top 3 in NC. And #1 in the Raleigh area.

  • don't waste your money

    worst haunted trail I have ever been on in my life. Too many annoying children took part in the acting and half the people weren't even in costumes. They just would pop up and scream in your ears. The acting was horrible as well. It takes about an hour to get through and I have never been so ready to be done with something in my life, not to mention the headache I had when I left. Was able to visit the slaugter house right across the street and if your looking for some fun and halloween scare go there! They have an awesome crew and actors. The costumes were the best I've seen.

  • Great place for a small town

    Been here several times. This is as good as and sometimes better than the Jaycees Haunted Houses in Raleigh. I drive from Rocky Mount to visit it. Don't bother with the one across the street. Unless they have drastically changed it, it's not worth your time.
