Def more walking than anticipated, but the longest haunted experience I’ve ever paid for, so Big Bang for your buck. Lovely cruise to destination, the canyon. The canyon itself is probably quite beautiful during the day: narrow pathways of at times deep canyon alongside creeks...More

This trip is a combo boat and hiking trail. You get on the boat at the ticket office, there is an elevator for those needing the help. The boat ride is about 20 minutes out, with a top, bottom and rear area. Once there, you...More

Had a great time. Bit of a walk but it was nice. Really wish it were a bit longer. Actors were great but the scares were wasted on people in front of us and we always knew it was coming. So crowded.

This was our second year, so I guess we liked it enough to go back. The boat ride is great, something about cruising through the river in the dark is pretty spooky. The "sets" were well done, decorations looking all too real in some areas....More

Be sure to get here early so you can get to sit on the upper deck of the boat. You board the boat and go for a 30 minute ride where you dock and the haunted house starts. It's a long walk and the haunted...More

I am guessing roughly about 2 miles total (there and back). You walk into a cavern that comes to an end. You then walk back the same route you came from.
