  • Email Verified You will love it!!

    Scaryyyy!!! Our favourite was the nightmare factory. A throwback to the 80s horror that we both enjoyed. Shipwreck had some creepy characters that made her scream. The clowns were a dud though. Slaughter house had the typical blood and gore. Set design was good. My GF did not want to do Descent as she is afraid of underground and closed spaces. So probably next time I will give it a try. We also did photo-shoot with the scare actors and bought few items from the gift shop. Overall, we had a great time at the Lake Hickory Haunts. Scare lovers should check it out.

  • Creepy awesome

    There's a tremendous amount to see and do at this haunt. I and wife were scared out of our wits in the Nightmare Factory. It had a backstory and Dr. Death and the nurses scared the crap out of us. The grotesque figures in the Liar of the Undead also gave us a hard time. The set design of shipwreck was creepy awesome. We skipped descent for obvious reasons. The clowns again scared the daylight out of us. Actors’ makeup/costumes were spot-on.

  • Email Verified Worth a visit

    This is my second year here at lake hickory and it has always been fun and scary. A place worth a visit with a lot of variety of events on offer under one roof. The characters were unique and the actors breathed life into it which was spooky and gory. Clowns were a surprise and it is with great effort they have created the right ambience. We were there for the blackout weekend and truly it was complete darkness. Don’t miss their escape rooms it is quite thrilling. I am sure you will end up revisiting.

  • Email Verified Wonderful time

    I and friends – six people – had a wonderful time at Lake Hickory Haunt. We had the VIP pass, so that we could skip the queues. The sets transport you into another world altogether. Great attention to details, unique scents, and visuals with harrowing interactive elements takes you to a totally new level. Actors’ performance was awesome. I’ve seen few of the monsters in midway, and they later scared the crap out of us in the haunt. They don’t rush you through. You’ll get the time to savor every scare or props on the way. Food was awesome too.

  • Email Verified Scariest haunted attraction

    Clearly one the scariest haunted attractions I’ve been to. Great imagination by the designers to say the least. Slaughter house had all the blood and gore that freaked us out. 3D haunt was interesting, the concept was innovative and gave us the thrills.

  • Email Verified Unlimited fun

    Went with my friends and it is indeed a great place to hangout. It was fun unlimited with my buddies and the monsters. Been there quite often and it is fresh and new each year. Awesome scares, awesome actors. Meticulously planned and executed. The midway section offers you much needed relaxation and entertainment. Food, drinks, music and mayhem all out if the world experience. The actors had their complete attention on us. The makeover instills fear at their sight and they have been using it very well to their advantage. It is the variety of themes used in each haunt that makes it more unique and interesting. We jumped a little, screamed a little. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Email Verified Absolutely fun

    My friends and I decided to checkout this place on a spur of the moment and we honestly thought it was good. We were a group of 10 adults and the crew there split us into tiny groups which was fine, we got to enjoy the thrills first hand. That was absolutely fun. The actors could concentrate on just us and there was no confusions or hassles anywhere. Great scares and awesome choc o bloc of events.

  • Email Verified Unbeatable

    This place does a seriously great job. The atmosphere was certainly upbeat. The first section of the haunt was the best. The scares were of good quality, and the sets and attention to detail was impressive to say the least. The biker girl with the axe was entertaining. Trust me, you will not be disappointed!!

  • Email Verified O.K. Haunt

    The haunt it self was very designed nicely. The actors were good and it was a long haunt. Yea I understand they have lots of people waiting to go in but still there is no reason to have to wait two hours for the haunt. The scares wernt all that good either. You could predict when something was about to happen and half of the actors just had blood on their face that's it. They also use chainsaws with every section of it. At some point it's not scary anymore and just plain annoying. The other thing is they charge you to park? Where else are you supposed to park the road? Overall it was a decent haunt but I would definitely not spend $20 dollars on it again.

  • Email Verified I Love Lake Hickory Haunts

    I visit Lake Hickory Haunts ever year because they're seriously the best attraction on the East Coast. They out-do themselves each year... I have seen sneak peeks of their underground attraction, 4D Attraction, and Aftermath attractions... They're going to be the best sets ever!! I can't wait to see them with live actors. Lake Hickory Haunts is a show you MUST SEE if you're a haunt-goer or horror fan!

  • Email Verified Full of terrifying stuffs

    One of the scariest places in NC. We went in a group of three and we all had a fabulous time. It’s so worth getting VIP passes to skip the queue and got into the real actions. All attractions were damn frightening; especially the slaughter house was full of terrifying stuffs. Astonished by the animatronics and special effects, as they were placed suitably at right locations. All actors have done a wonderful job. We screamed, yelled, jumped and ran so many times. Staffs were cooperative. We are definitely coming back.

  • Email Verified Not worth the money

    Went there with my GF.. the haunt was good.. there were couple of instances wherein she jumped and screamed.. actors all performed well. What I disliked was the long queues. The pricing was also a bit steep for the experience they offered. Also, it would have attracted more people if they’d waived the parking fee.

    Pretty good haunt this is.. everywhere there was something to scare me.. the Freddy looked so good.. actors performed great, and the staff were friendly as well. If you want a smooth entry, try for VIP passes. I recommend this haunt for all scare lovers out there.
