This year, scheduling has been adjusted to separate groups and ensure social distancing. Masks will be worn by staff and must be worn by visitors. Ticketed groups may travel through the haunts together. Complete guidelines for taking part in their haunted tours may be found at www.darksidehauntedestates.com. Tickets may be purchased via that website. Tickets will be on sale at the onsite ticket booth from 6:30pm to 10pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

This attraction is south of downtown Middlesex, just over the Wake County line into Nash County. Travel times may be 10-15 minutes from Zebulon or Bailey; 20-25 minutes from Knightdale; and 30+ minutes from Raleigh and Wilson, NC. Concessions will be available at the site.
