  • 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 Overpriced

    One thing I did not like about Hickory Haunts was the long lines.. get a VIP pass if you could. Parking fee and the overpriced admission fee were ridiculous.. There were some nice scares for sure..but it was not worth considering the total price you spent.

  • 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.

    Lake Hickory Haunts is one of the more premier haunts I have been to. The thought and passion behind this haunt are evident. I can’t wait to see what comes from this haunt next year.

    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.

  • Email Verified Terrifying performance

    We drove for 3 hours for this haunt and the experience was worth the drive. In terms of scares, sets and props, this one beats the other two haunts we visited the last few years. Actors with their scary costumes and makeup had put up a terrifying performance.. my wife was scared out of her wits by the time we exited the haunt.. I was startled too couple of times to be honest.. my favourite was the clowns.. the visual effect was excellent.. Check this place out when you’re in NC.

  • Email Verified Amazingly Scary

    I have visited Lake Hickory Haunts every year since 2013. Their show, customer service, and scares are phenomenal. But this year, they truly have outdone themselves! I can't believe how great LHH is, after only 6 years of operation. This year, I visited the first week of October, and November 4 for Black Out! Black out was a completely unique experience than the regular show... The regular haunt tour is jaw dropping, with the best sets, actors, special FX, and costumes I've ever seen. The tour took us 45 minutes to complete. My favorite attraction they have is Extinction, it feels like you've just been thrown into the Aliens movie, and the Creature of the Black Lagoon at the same time. Lake Hickory Haunts is worth way more than what they charge. I recommend getting the VIP Pass! We were treated like royalty, and got a free t-shirt, and to play the new (awesome) escape game, and we played Dizzy Darts (really unique). Anyways, I could talk about this haunt for days... Just trust me and go experience it for yourself, you won't regret it! Thank you Lake Hickory Haunts!!!

  • Hell scary

    If you are curious about the unknown or unseen then pay a visit to Hickory Haunt. There are clowns to chase you and undead awaits to take your soul; beware not to get trapped. Slaughter house is none like other haunted houses its hell scary. I like to suggest going for Fast pass to skip the long lines. This place will not let you down.

  • Awful

    I have given these guys two tries and they're terrible it's a big budget haunt with low budget brains. The first time I ever went I kept hearing about them being on lake hickory and you got to do a boat ride well we paid the extra additional money to do that and it ended up being pulled across a pond on a make shift raft ordeal. I didn't even jump once. Lousy place if you ask me. The only part that was decent was the DJ and the small fair type games they had. Which cost as well.

  • Email Verified Number one

    Absolutely the best and most amazing place I've ever been to. I give it a 10 on the scareometer. I personally don't get scared easily I was kept on my toes the whole way through. Thanks for the amazing experience of getting my heart scared out of my chest. The most fun I've had in years this place should be number one of all time. Loved it can't wait to see what 2018 holds BC its gonna b hard to beat my 2017 experience.

  • Email Verified Only scary for young people or very easily scared adults

    I would prefer a quality haunted attraction over the quantity. It’s a very long trail that weaves in and out and goes on and on, but it misses the wow factor. They have a lot of props and special effects, but it just wasn’t scary. I was startled once. The actors mostly talked in a scary and/or screaming voice but never seemed to put a lot of effort into trying to scare us. There were no actors on the trail parts of it, only in the structures, buses, etc. The Midway was fun and the fire was great. It’s acceptable for young people or adults that are easily scared.

  • Good

    I, kids and my parents visited the haunt.. they are old and they found negotiating the uneven grounds a bit tough.. the steps and stairs were a roadblock. So be judicious while bringing your parents or in-laws along. But my kids enjoyed the scares.. actors were also good.

  • Really horrifying haunt

    There are many monsters and evil spirits ready to haunt you at Lake Hickory..... be prepared to run for your life once you enter. A real life horror fun adventure. The air is filled with horrifying hallucinations and the fear will swallow you. Factory, clowns, house, undead and many more is waiting for their victims. Even though it was a super scary night we really enjoyed our time at Hickory Haunt.
