Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Monster Bash is an indoor haunted house. If our haunt is busy the waiting area can get quite warm, however the haunt floor is unheated and subject to the outside temperature. We recommend wearing outdoor, sturdy shoes as our haunt sometimes features outdoor terrain.
IS MONSTER BASH SAFE?
Yes. Monster Bash has an 8 year safety record and is protected by The Fillmore County Sheriff’s Department and private security. Safety is our Top Priority!
WHY VISIT MONSTER BASH?
Monster Bash is one of the best Haunted Attractions in Minnesota (according to mnhauntedhouses.com). At $13 for admission, it is one of the best value around. We are a non profit haunted house and donate the bulk of our earnings each year to support the arts (music, theater and fine arts) in the local area. Our actors are students and volunteers from the local community and we still will get your scare on. Our attractions are built with quality and the best possible scares in mind. You can read reviews of our haunt HERE and HERE to get a feel for what our guests think. Finally, we won't bore you. Each year we come up with a new theme, a new layout and new scares. Visiting us each year will never be boring!
At Monster Bash, we want you to have an incredible experience. If you leave for any reason unhappy, we are not happy. We have a passion for what we do. Our staff is itching over the winter to get back to work building, coming up with new ideas, and making sure you have a blast. We don’t want you to visit us just once, we want you, your family and friends, to make Monster Bash a tradition for years to come.
WHAT DAY SHOULD WE ATTEND?
You can find our open days and times here. Thursdays and Sundays tend to be our slower days and Saturday our busiest. Waits on busy days can tend up to an hour or more, we try to keep those waits as short as possible. To entertain the folks in line we have wandering spooks and a small concession area with candy, popcorn, drinks and home made treats. We recommend arriving earlier than later. If you have paid and we pass our closing time, you will still be welcome to go through the haunt. We will continue operating until all our paid guests have gone through the haunt.
AGE RESTRICTIONS? WHAT IF I (or someone in my group) AM A CHICKEN?
We are not age restricted. We offer an option to go through with no scare which our attendants can explain to you. However, we warn guests that while they may be a no scare group there are other groups in the haunt and their screams etc may bleed over into your experience. In addition there are elements that will be there no matter what. A no scare group simply removes the active scare from our actors.
IS MONSTER BASH REALLY SCARY?
Monster Bash is family friendly yet still Scary. We bring in actors of all types with varying skills from our local school and community. All our actors are volunteers; they come every night because they love scaring the heck out of our guests. Because our actors are parents, students, teachers they may not be available every night, even so we go to great lengths to train them to scare our guests. So, is it scary? Every year we have guests who lose control of their bladder in the haunted house. From time to time we've had to go in and escort guests through the haunt just so they can get out. And at least once we've had a local football player curled up in a ball wimpering in the corner of a room. Is Monster Bash scary? Yeah, we'd say it certainly can be scary.
DO YOU HAVE DISCOUNT/GROUP TICKET OFFERS?
As a charity we do not currently offer discount or group ticket discounts. You can often win tickets from local radio stations and at different events.
IS MONSTER BASH HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE?
Yes, we work diligently to ensure guests in a wheelchair can access and navigate our haunt. It's not always easy but it is always possible. If we have a section which is not handicap accessible we let guests know and always have a bypass for that section of the haunt.
