Great Haunt! You get a haunted walk through the mine...which only two people are allowed at a time, haunted hay ride, haunted walk in the woods only in 2's, and a haunted corn maze ALL for $12 bucks. We ordered our tickets off the internet and got the deal. IT is worth every dime. The actors are great! If anything I wish they would have more actors and utilize the great space even more then what they have. Walking through there gave so many great ideas for them. Overall a fun time! Loved it!

Summary

Just go see this unique haunt! Getting there is even scary.

Review

A group of 6 of us went to The Dark Side this past Saturday and it ROCKED OUR SOCKS! Arriving right around 9 we bought our tickets and stood in line. We waited about 40 minutes and then ventured up the hill listening to the story of the farm.

Once we arrived at the mine we were broken into groups of 2 and began making our way through the foggy and ghoul filled mine. All I have to say about this area is beware of the clowns!

After we finished the mine it was a short wait at a fire until our entire group was ready. About 40 of us got onto the wagon and were taken into the woods. This part was extremely creepy given there is little to no light and you cannot always see what is coming before its too late.

After our ride we were dropped off at a second fire and once again broken into groups of 2 and sent through the woods. This was my favorite part! The actors were in multiple places and scaring you when you least expect it. Also they were very creative in where/how they scared making this portion very creepy.

Finally after the woods we walked through the corn maze and once again we were scared senseless. A perfect end to a great haunt!

Summary

This haunt is a gem! The scares are top notch and there are many of them as well as great sets, lighting and music. The actors are in your face, scary as hell and dont break character. I thought there were alot more actors then there actually were. It felt like 100 people scaring me throughout the night but there were only 38! What The Dark Side lacks in numbers they make up for with creativity and just pure terror! I would recommend this haunt to anyone and everyone I know!

Review

We went to this haunt yesterday with a small group of four. We got there around 9:10 and it was pretty packed. We bought our tickets and then stood in line, asking everyone that had gone through if it was scary or not. As expected, most of the said, "you'll have to decide for yourself."

<b>Signage / Visibility / Location</b>
Make sure to print out some directions before you go; they do have signs pointing to the direction your are suppose to go once you get off the highway, but its also nice to have a little extra help. Also, please note that the haunt is at the END of a road, so even thought it feels like you're going to the middle of nowhere, keep driving, you'll get there eventually.

<b>Wait Area / Line Entertainment</b>
When we got there and saw how long the line was, we seriously considered leaving, but one of the members of our group convinced us to stay. Surprisingly the line went rather fast because they split the it into groups of 25 or so. There are no actors entertaining the line, but since you are at a farm the line forms around the pony pen! Also, they did have a table which contained a wide variety of refreshments available for purchase.

<b>Actors' Performance<b/>
The actors were great, and had no trouble screaming in anybody's ear. There were quite a few funny actors (e.g. some 12 year old boy calling us star trek geeks? weird) that did take the scary out of the atmosphere, but we were reluctant to have that.

<b>Sets Scenes / Props / FX</b>
You get for different settings for the small price of $15. First, is the mine shaft, which you are told the history of before entering. Honestly, this was one of the greatest set ups that we have ever been to. You could tell that they spent a lot of time, and money, on this part. You were slit into groups of two and then allowed to enter. It was filled with smoke, sand, grass, stairs, strobe lights, dark rooms... we think you get the point. It was great! After surviving the mine, you wait around a fire for the rest of the group to come out of the mine shaft. Eventually a large tractor comes and takes you on a ride to your nest destination. On the tractor you experience numerous ghouls, sounds, props, and interactive things as it drives you around a spooky woods. Be on your toes while on this tractor, there are definitely somethings that happen that you would never expect. After the tractor drops you off in the middle of the woods, you wait for a few moments before being split into groups of two again and venturing into the dark woods. There are many scares in this part and the props add a good effect. You then finish this haunt by entering into the corn maze. We must say, out of everything this haunt had to offer, this was definitely lacking some actors.

<b>Length</b>
We agree that this is one of the longer haunts we have been to. It took about an hour to get through, which we thought was great.

<b>Most Memorable Moment</b>
We would say the mine shaft. Everything about that place was great.

Summary

For $15 we can honestly say it was worth the price. It's an event for people looking to have a good time. It may not be scary for everyone, but honestly, you'll have a blast. We will be back next year, there is no doubt about that.

Review

I heard about this haunt from a few people who read great reviews for it. I also did my homework and looked at the website and reviews and thought it would be great, especially the way people described it. Now I have been going to multiple haunted houses now since I was about 11-12 so Its been about 14 years now that I have been going. I love a good scare and a good scary atmosphere. Unfortunately when we went to The Dark Side with high expectations of being scared out of our minds, we were saddly mistaken. When we got there we saw lots of little kids around the ages of 7-10 and thought it was weird for kids that young to be there with it being so highly scary. Well at the end we knew why...it wasn't scary at all. Timing was bad on the actors part and the set up of the "cave" or "mine shaft" was so cramped and unbelieveable it was laughable not scary. You start with the mine shaft and then work your way to the carriage ride through the woods and go walk through a small portion of the woods and end with a corn maze. Sounds cool right? Not so much. The only somewhat scary factor of it was the ride through the woods just because the setting was pitch dark no lights and you could hear rustling of things you didn't know. It was a mind freak type of deal. And the only reason it takes an hour and a half to go through is because through the mine shaft you have to go in groups of two and through the little walk through the woods it is also groups of two. We were highly disappointed with this.Plus we did get lost pretty bad on the way there and back. Not a fun experience.

Summary

The eight of us that went were highly disappointed. The haunt had great potential but didn't surpass it. I don't think we will go again.But it is a good haunt for younger crowd, saw 7-13 year olds.
