Do you have activities for children? (Family Festival Attraction)

Yes! For the first time ever, the Haunted Forest is excited to host the Family Festival! We welcome younger  children and their parents to come and enjoy special activities the whole family can enjoy. Join us for our  Twilight Hour, Hay Maze, Bounce Houses, and more! Please see our Family Festival page for more details.

Is the Haunted Forest Experience suitable for children?

In short, the Haunted Forest (different from the Family Festival Attraction) is not suitable for children aged  9 and under. Parents are strongly encouraged to be cautious about bringing children aged 10-12 into the  forest. The Haunted Forest is a primal and outdoor experience, unlike typical haunted attractions. Dozens  of children and their parents have turned back every year, causing delays and inconvenience to guests  and actors alike. Remember, no refunds are allowed if you and your child have to turn back.

How long is the Haunted Forest Experience?

The full forest walk is about 2/3 of a mile and should take the average person between 25-35 minutes to  complete.

Can minors enter the forest without an adult?

We do not allow anyone under the age of 15 to enter the Haunted Forest without an adult. Groups are  expected to be respectful and attentive to all instructions given by staff.

Can I wear a costume into the forest?

Absolutely! We highly encourage patrons to get into the Halloween spirit by dressing up. However,  please be aware of the following guidelines: 

  • No prop weapons are allowed in the Forest. 
  • Headwear can be easily knocked off by branches and obstacles. 
  • We do not recommend bringing purses or bags in the Forest. 
  • Robes, capes, baggy pants, dresses, and skirts tend to get caught on bushes and trees in the  forest. Your costume could get ripped. 

Lost props or costumes cannot be recovered until the following business day.

Can I buy tickets at the door?

All ticket sales are handled online. You are welcome to use your phone’s internet browser to purchase tickets before entering, but we advise you to purchase ahead of time in case your desired time slot is  sold out.

Is the Haunted Forest Experience challenging to walk through?

The Haunted Forest Experience retains many natural and outdoor elements to enhance the overall  adventure. As you traverse the forest, you can expect to encounter uneven ground, duck under  obstacles, navigate inclines, and walk through rough terrain in dim lighting conditions. 

Please consider the following guidelines before entering the Haunted Forest:

  1. Physical Requirements: Visitors should be capable of walking over uneven surfaces and rough  terrain comfortably. We do not recommend entering the forest with leg casts, boots, or crutches that may hinder mobility. 
  2. Wheelchair Accessibility: Unfortunately, the Forest is not wheelchair accessible due to its natural  setting and rugged paths. 
  3. Safety Concerns: If you have difficulty walking or are prone to injuries from falls, we advise  against walking through the Haunted Forest for your safety. 

We want everyone to have an enjoyable and safe experience in the Haunted Forest, so please assess  your physical capabilities before embarking on this thrilling journey.

Are service animals allowed in the Forest?

For the safety of all guests and staff, absolutely no service animals or pets are allowed in the Forest. Where is the Haunted Forest located? 

This year, the Haunted Forest is hosted in partnership with Green River Brewing and Taproom. You can  find us at their location, where you’ll not only enjoy the Haunted Forest experience but also have the  opportunity to indulge in good food, drinks, and seasonal activities. Join us at 4513 Putah Creek Rd,  Winters, CA 95694 for an unforgettable adventure!

Will the Haunted Forest be the same as last year?

Each year the Haunted Forest will present an exciting mix of new themes and characters along with the  old ones you’ve grown to love! Although… this year is sure to be scarier!

Do I need to arrive early for my ticket time? (Late arrival policy)

STICK TO THE TICKET TIME YOU PURCHASED. We strongly recommend arriving 15 minutes early for your  allotted ticket time. This gives you time to find parking, check-in, use the restroom, and receive  instruction from our line attendants. Late arrivals will be accommodated to the best of our ability, but we  cannot guarantee that you will be able to go through the Haunted Forest due to the highly scheduled  nature of Haunted Forest tours. Remember, refunds cannot be given for late arrivals.

All of my tickets have the same name on them. Is that ok?

Absolutely! We are aware of a common glitch in the ticketing system, and we are working to resolve it.  Rest assured, all tickets are transferable, so you can use them even if your name is not on them.
