We will put you through the Haunted Hydro in group sizes depending on Crazy Bob’s mood AKA the Ghost Host in charge at the front door! You will then have to navigate through the dark, dim, and extremely eerie spaces throughout our 1911 Hydro Electric Power Plant full of Monsters… some with flashlights who will provide what little light you need to get through….IF they are feeling nice…

UNTIL….you reach the FOAM….then you are COMPLETELY IMMERSED and on your own!!!!

RULES:
*Do not run, we suggest you stay together…it will be a LITTLE dark……
* Be prepared to be engulfed in FOAM at some point. You will get a bit damp. We are not responsible for clothes or valuables.
*OR you can be a CHICKEN and escape the haunt without any FOAM with our CHICKEN route but trust us…. that decision may be worse than the FOAM….(ha…ha…ha..)

SO, see you soon my friends for a ONE OF A KIND time with our FOAM & FLASHLIGHTS event May 12th & 13th!

And remember… “Never, ever, come alone”!!!

It will allow us to create an intimate and thrilling experience that guests won’t soon forget.”
