How long does it take to go through all of the attractions at Scary Acres?
It takes anywhere between 1 to 3 ½ hours to go through all of the Attractions. Varying factors may include the day of the week (Fridays and Saturdays are typically the busiest evenings), the length of the lines, how quickly you pace yourself when walking through the Attractions, and the time spent enjoying the outdoor entertainment between the Attractions.
Do your Attractions close due to rain?
NO! Scary Acres is built to accommodate the unpredictable Nebraska weather. It is possible that the outdoor Attraction may close if we deem the walking path to be too muddy. On those rainy evenings we do suggest wearing proper footwear in case the park is a little muddy.
Can the monsters touch us?
Our actors and staff are instructed not to touch you. Of course, in the excitement and commotion of our actors scaring you and your group, and in the darker areas, someone might accidentally bump into you or seem to touch you. (Usually the person is someone in your own group!) Scary Acres takes the safety of its staff and customers VERY seriously. If we find that any customer has touched one of our actors, that customer, and possibly their entire group, would be immediately escorted out of the park. Please keep your hands to yourself.
Are the Attractions the same each year?
Absolutely not! We pride ourselves on the fact that we do extensive renovation each year on every Attraction so that your experience is new from year to year. No two visits to Scary Acres are alike!
How do your Attractions compare to other haunts in the area?
We are the home of Omaha's 3 greatest Haunted Attractions! Scary Acres and its creators have been setting the standard for the area haunts for over 20 years. We love what we do and we believe we are the best at it! We pride ourselves on the fact that year after year, families from near and far travel to Scary Acres to visit our Attractions. They come to see us because we have created the ULTIMATE HAUNTED ATTRACTIONS!! We have set the bar high and we don't plan to disappoint!
How old do you have to be to attend Scary Acres?
We have no age restriction. It is up to you to decide if your younger ones should attend the Attractions. It's like attending a scary movie - if you think your children will be okay, then bring them along. People of all ages can enjoy our Attractions, but make no mistake, we are here to scare you.
Are your tickets refundable?
We have a NO refund policy. Once you have purchased your tickets, they are yours. If you are too scared to enter the Attractions once you are inside of the park, we have done our job. If you have only used a portion of the tickets you purchased and are too scared to continue, we have done our job. We are here to scare you, and that's what we intend to do! If you have purchased tickets and need to leave the park and return a different evening for whatever reason, you can do so as long as your ticket remains fully intact upon your return. IF YOU LOSE ANY OF YOUR TICKETS WITHIN THE PARK ONCE THEY HAVE BEEN PURCHASED, WE WILL NOT ISSUE YOU A REPLACEMENT TICKET FREE OF CHARGE. YOU MUST PURCHASE A REPLACEMENT TICKET AT YOUR OWN COST. HOLD ONTO YOUR TICKETS CAREFULLY!!
