While we are still operating as usual this year, some things have been changed in order to ensure your safety during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like most places, everyone must be wearing a face mask in order to attend and must maintain a social distance from other parties by at least 6 feet.
If you are at an increased risk of contracting or becoming severely ill from COVID-19, you should not attend. This includes, but is NOT limited to, people with asthma, diabetes, immune system deficiencies, and people age 65 or older.
The amount of tickets available for purchase this year has been reduced, so we ask that you purchase your tickets online early to ensure you will be able to attend.
In addition, you will have to show up at Terror of Tallahassee during the 30 minute time window that you selected when purchasing a ticket. This allows us to evenly separate the crowd through the night, so that the experience is more private and that the waiting period is reduced.
You must purchase a minimum of 2 tickets, as your party will be sent in by yourselves or with one other small group (6 feet apart). Tickets go on sale one week before the date of the attraction.
We understand that these are difficult times, but we hope that you come and enjoy yourselves at Terror of Tallahassee this October.
As a safety precaution, when you purchase a ticket, you will have to choose what time you will arrive at Terror of Tallahassee. You must arrive within that 30 minute window to ensure entry. Tickets go on sale one week before each individual date.
We're located a 1/2 mile South from FSU's football stadium at 1408 Lake Bradford Road, Tallahassee, FL, 32304.
A: Afraid so! Ask anyone who has been to the corporate haunts (like Universal) and also ours, and the vast majority will acknowledge we're far more intense. We emphasize quality of the experience over quantity of the customers, so we don't push customers through in a continuous line. Our small, intimate groups isolate the customer and prevent them from knowing what to expect around the corner by seeing the reactions of other people ahead in the line... and we have LOTS of corners (and frights behind them)! We make less money reducing the crowd flow, but our customer satisfaction is worth it.
Yes, but only in person at the window. Then you can go with your existing group if it does not exceed twelve total.
Usually yes, providing that the line isn’t too long. We are selling limited tickets this year due to Covid concerns (to allow customers to socially distance between each group). Only the on-line tickets reserve and guarantee access, but we can accommodate a limited number of additional spaces each half hour. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but this will probably be the only year we need to do this.
Yes, but we still operate inside, rain or shine.
A: YES (if they can handle it), but because of the many extreme frights, we urge Parental Guidance for anyone under 13. Pre-teen children must also be accompanied by an adult.
A: YES. It is already quite dark, so anything that can obstruct your view (or identity) is not allowed. Costume masks are not permitted, however surgical and medical masks are.
A: NO, because of the large staff we maintain for the best performance, the haunt is only open select dates in October (and sometimes a night or two after Halloween).
A: If strobe lights or artificial fog cause you problems, then please do NOT come, because both are used.
A: NO. It would be reckless and stupid to subject yourself to extreme frights if you have either of those conditions. Please play it safe and avoid coming, as much as we would otherwise appreciate your patronage.
A: YES, it is.
A: NO, they are not. If used inside, they will be confiscated.
A: No open flames of any sort are ever allowed. No cigarettes or electronic smoking (or vaping) are allowed inside as well.
A: NO. Actors will maintain a safe distance away so that you will not be touched, grabbed or hit. You must never grab or strike anyone else. (Violators will be prosecuted.)
A: We try to finish everyone in line regardless how late it gets. If it takes too many extra hours, we will tell newcomers that the line is "closed out"-- but those already waiting will still get in.
A: YES you may. We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Discover. We also accept cash.
A: NO. Although many survive and make it all the way through, it's our goal to scare patrons out the exit early. Would you want a refund from a restaurant because the food was better than you expected?
A: NO, they are not (once inside). It ruins the dark atmosphere and the spirits don't like it. However, if you are like most people, you won't need a camera. The trauma will make it difficult to ever forget what you've seen or heard!
A: There is free parking on either side of the numerous side streets. However, if there is a local football game at the FSU stadium the same night, the street parking can get used up and it's better to walk from campus or arrange someone to drop you off and pick you up on game nights. We're only 1/2 a mile South of the football stadium.
A: Hell yeah! Considering our size and the time we lavish on each group, we have very cheap tickets (especially compared to other haunts). In fact, our admission only costs less than what Universal charges just for parking. Now that's scary!
A: Maybe, if you think you can take it! Go here for more info.
A: We're over three times the length of any of the haunts at Universal, typically taking between 15-20 minutes to escape. (Although it may seem like an eternity!)
A: Unfortunately for you-- YES, we do. Whether it's rats, roaches, snakes, clowns, or whatever else people are most afraid of, chances are that we have it and you're gonna have to face it to make it through. It may seem cruel, but what can we say? It's our business!
