If you think that going to a haunted house is the most awesome thing ever and you want to take your kids to one for a family outing, you may be worried about how your kids are going to handle going to the haunted house. There are a few things that you can do to make sure that your trip goes as well as possible.
Check For Reviews
One thing that you can do is to make sure that you check the reviews of the haunted house before you go. There are several places that you can go to find the reviews. One place is social media. Many of these haunted houses will have their own social media pages. You can go to their page and see what people have said about the haunted house. You can also go to your favorite search engine. There are sites that are set up specifically for reviews and those review sites will often go into more depth than haunted house reviews you may see on social media sites. You may also want to check the online part of your local newspaper to see if anyone has said anything the haunted house.
Many haunted houses will have special early hours. Those hours are for people who have kids or who want to see the haunted house but may be skittish. During those hours, the lights are generally brighter so it's easier to see what's going on, the music and audio effects are quieter, and some of the scares or exhibits are going to be inactive so that the haunted house will be less intense. They might not have these hours every day, so you should call the haunted house or look on their website or social media sites to see if they have them listed.
Check About No Touch
Some haunted houses will have people who will jump out and grab or touch people. It's a guaranteed scare. However, there are many that won't do that. A no-contact haunted house will be much less scary for anyone. No touch haunted houses may also have a minimum distance that the performer has to stay away from anyone. These features may not happen in the early hours, but you should check on the policy anyway. You can do that by calling them or they may have a sign at the entrance as to their policies.
A haunted house can be a lot of fun. If you want to take your kids as a family outing, you want to make sure that you can have a great time as a family.
