Rules of Terror

As guests on our property, you are expected to follow the Rules of our Forest:

  • Do not touch anyone or anything you encounter while deep within the depths of the Forest – it upsets our creatures. Some of our creatures are also the curious type and may try and get a better understanding of what you are… so be prepared. Also, several areas do have narrow rooms and hallways, which are quite dark, and accidental bumping may occur… so please excuse the injustice and continue screaming.  
  •  Dress appropriately! You’re at a Haunted Forest on 24 acres! You can expect to run, duck, crawl, fall, and climb through all sorts of terrifying experiences. Wear comfortable clothes you don’t mind getting dirty in, and sturdy shoes that won’t slow you down if you need to make a quick escape (stilletos are NOT recommended for a hike through the woods). Fashion doesn’t count—making out out does!
  • Do not attempt to entertain yourself here if you are under the influence of alcohol, drugs, etc. We have security on site, and you WILL be refused and/or sent to a different part of the forest that we claim no responsibility for. Good Luck.  The legaleeze version: “SplatmanBOO Haunted Forest reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone or to expel guests who in our judgment are behaving in such a way as to disrupt the event or to pose a danger to themselves, other guests, or our volunteers at any time. No refunds will be made for any reason.”
  • There is no smoking anywhere on the trail. Lighters, matches, and all other sources of flame are also prohibited. Finish your last smoke in line.
  • Do not use flashlights, phone lights, cameras, or laser pointers in the forest. You came here to be scared, so BE SCARED! If this place is too much to handle (which it has been for many), our staff will escort you safely to our Chicken Chair to wait for your group. In addition, our staff knows their way around the woods in the dark, so we have limited experience using such devices after the sun goes down. We are not sure what sort of reaction the spirits would have to them. Our security cameras do not seem to function properly all the time, so we are assuming the same of other hand-held electrical equipment. OH.. and leave the SILLY STRING at home. Our staff and creatures of the woods are easily offended by such rudeness. 
  • We love an atmosphere full of fog, strobe lights, loud noises, and intense scares. If you are pregnant, sensitive to distorting lights, epileptic, have heart problems, or have a medical condition that increases health risk, we recommend you do not enter the woods.
  • SplatmanBOO Haunted Forest is being videotaped for security, promotional, and research and development purposes. By attending this event, your group must sign a waiver stating (among other things) that you consent to the unrestricted use of your likeness and voice for advertising or other purposes by SplatmanBOO Haunted Forest and Splatmandu Paintball Club.
  • Do not take any food or beverage of any kind onto the trail. Staff will remind you of such before you launch, but in case they forget, please to the right thing and throw away your garbage before you leave.
  • SplatmanBOO Haunted Forest is open to all ages, but we strongly recommend that all visitors be at least 14 years old and accompanied by a parent.
  • Your reactions matter!  What you get out of your experience is influenced by what you put in. We do this because we love it, so if you take the fun out it for us,  we’ll make fun of you after the show. Bad groups of guests fade from the staff’s memory almost immediately, but we remember the really good ones for years. If you are totally into it, our staff will love you and will give it all they’ve got to give you the best show possible.
  • This place is scary. It’s supposed to be scary, and you will be scared. Be prepared.  The paranormal activity has increased exponentially over the past few years, so we’ll see what happens!
