Frequently Asked Questions

Is Dark Realms a for-profit event?

No. We are currently high-end "home haunters" with a true passion for Halloween! We do have professional experience as haunt designers, haunt actors, live theatre designers, and black light event designers… However Dark Realms is not a professional, for-profit event. Dark Realms is completely FREE, and no merchandise or food is sold on-site. We love Mount Pleasant, and want to offer our haunt as free Halloween entertainment to our community! DARK REALMS is run by two Mount Pleasant residents (brothers) who are CMU alumni.

What nights are you open?

DUE TO MOVING, THERE IS NO DARK REALMS IN 2016. SEE YOU FOR THE NEW DARK REALMS IN 2017!

We WILL operate in light rain, as most of the haunt is covered. We will close in heavy rain, lightning, snow, or high winds. Watch our Facebook and Twitter accounts for current updates.

How much is admission?

The event is FREE to the community, and there is no merchandise for sale on site. Cash donations are being accepted on site for *HATS - The Humane Animal Treatment Society of Mount Pleasant.

Can we go through the haunt more than once?

Yes, you may go through twice. However if there is a line, you must go to the back of the line for your second trip. If you become annoying to the staff or other patrons by repeated trips through the haunt during which you point out where all the scares happen ahead of time, you will be asked to leave the property, and you will not be readmitted.

Is parking available?

Parking is on the street only. Please DO NOT block driveways or alleys. Obey all traffic and parking laws. Dark Realms is not responsible for any damage to vehicles. Please use caution when walking to and from your vehicle.

Is the event indoors or outdoors?

Both. The event leads through the yard, tents, and through the garage.

Is DARK REALMS scary?

Yes, it is intended to be scary. Not recommended for children under 10. No one under 16 admitted without an adult. Dark Realms is a low-gore haunt, but does contain a creepy atmosphere and occasional startling scares.

Are bathrooms offered on-site?

No. The event is on private property, and smoking is prohibited!

Is DARK REALMS handicap accessible?

We're sorry, at this time Dark Realms is not ADA compliant.

What is the admission policy?

Persons with heart problems, asthma, high blood pressure, epilepsy, casts, stitches, mental disorders, other medical conditions, or who are pregnant should NOT enter Dark Realms.
