    We know you are going to bring your cell phone; However, we ask that they are turned off while in the attractions. Also, we can’t stop to look for lost phones, keys or other items during the event — if we do find anything it will be sent to the merchandise area in the upstairs of the barn. No flashlights, please — it ruins the effect for the rest of our guests. We do sell glowsticks in both the concessions and merchandise areas within the barn — these can be worn. No photography or videography is allowed within the attractions — Our ghosts are a little camera shy.
