Things To Know about Visiting a Haunted House

Things to KNOW BEFORE YOU GO to a Haunted House 


How to Survive a Trip to Darkness - Creepyworld - Lemp or St Louis Escape 
 
  • Make sure to purchase a Speed Pass.  The longest line is the one to buy a ticket.  When you buy a ticket online you skip the waiting line.  Print your ticket at home or we'll scan your phone.  You can use your tickets any day until the end of the 2018 haunt season.  You can also purchase double combo tickets and save.  For the really brave you can purchase a triple combo ticket.  You can use all three tickets in one night or different nights.  
  • Photos and Video are allowed inside and outside the attractions however NO FLASH photo inside the haunted house.  Outside each haunt we have icon monsters please snap a picture.  Each haunt also features photo ops for you and your friends.  While inside the haunts we do not allow food, drinks, weapons or any kind.
  • No customers are allowed into the haunt wearing masks or faces painted.  If you show up on Halloween you must leave your masks and other items in your car. 
  • Dress Code:  Do not wear high heels, make sure you're wearing real shoes.  We suggest you remove any earings, jewerly, and leave ALL VALUABLES at home. 
  • DO NOT TOUCH OUR STAFF ACTORS OR PROPS otherwise you will be asked to leave without a refund. 
  • Do we close if it rains?  NO not typically.  Darkness and Lemp are both totally indoor haunts and both feature partial indoor que lines.  Creepyworld is an indoor/outdoor haunt.  If for any reason we will not open due to weather we'll post this on the haunts blog or social media.  What to wear... something casual works best.  
  • READ ALL WARNINGS PRIOR TO ENTERING!  YOU ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK.  DO NOT RUN this is the cause of most injuries.  SEE WARNING PAGES! 
GET TICKETS IN ADVANCE
  • If you purchase your ticket online you will save over 50% of wait times.  Purchase SPEED TICKETS and you'll skip the main waiting lines.  Keep in mind Darkness has an indoor waiting line which is actually part of the attraction which you will not skip.  Once at Creepyworld you will wait in small lines for some attractions but the main attraction line is the only one long.  SKIP ALL OF THIS buy speed tickets online BUY NOW CLICK HERE 
  • Coupons are available online.  Click on coupons tab, offer your email address, and a coupon will be emailed to you.  Coupons are not valid online.  Coupons are valid when presented to our box office at each locations.  
  • When buying tickets at the box office BRING CASH.  Some locations feature ATM Machines.  
  • St Louis Escape accepts walk ups however your best bet is to book online at www.stlouisescape.com    St Louis Escape is located next door to The Darkness. 

WHAT TO DO ONCE YOU ARRIVE
  • Once you arrive at any of our attractions if you already have a print at home ticket do NOT wait in the ticket line go straight to the attraction line.  If you purchased speed tickets find the sign that reads SPEED PASS LINE.  
  • Bring your camera because you'll find a lot of monsters roaming around to take pictures with along with several photo ops.  DO NOT USE YOUR FLASH inside the attractions.  
  • Boxoffice can open up to 30 minutes prior to opening time.  If you want to visit all three haunts in the same night we suggest you buy tickets in advance and show up 15 minutes before opening time at your first haunt.  Creepyworld is only 20 minutes from Lemp/Darkness and Lemp/Darkness are only 1 mile apart.  
  • PLEASE visit us on a WEEKDAY!  Sometimes weekends are really busy and our #1 complaint is the crowd.  If you visit on a weekday we pace the guests better, wait times are shorter and for some a better experience.  Sometimes we may have less actors but the crowd size is so much smaller.  Also consider coming on a weekend in September, early October or November weekends as they will have much smaller crowds.
  • When coming on a peak weekend expect large crowds, tons of energy, and excitement.  Our busiest weekends are also when we overload the attractions with actors sometimes 100 or more actors.  With that being said expect longer lines, and with that we must move people into the haunts at a quicker pace.  
  • If you want an exeperience with your friends, where you feel like its just you and then alone in a haunt COME in early September, November or weekdays! 
  • Each attraction features outdoor bathrooms.  Each attraction also features hired Police for security.  With that being said DO NOT LEAVE valuables in your car and DO NOT bring any type of weapon. 
  • Remember once you enter our haunted houses you might be filmed or photographed.   We also encourage you to like us on Instagram, Facebook, or Youtube.  Please share photos of your experience and tag us!
