Located a half-mile south of Doak Campbell Stadium, on Lake Bradford Road, Terror of Tallahassee is back for the 2022 season, and you can expect it to knock your socks off.

The highly anticipated haunted house makes an appearance every year with a new theme. This year’s theme is “the backroom,” and it’s intended to scare everyone who visits.

Beginning in early October, Terror of Tallahassee opened its doors to hundreds of visitors.

Junior architecture student at Florida A&M, Malikhai McGraw, says he was in for a rude awakening.

“Normally I don’t get scared very easily, but the haunted house definitely shook me up,” McGraw said. “I agreed to go with my friends thinking it would be similar to something back home, but the actors here did a really great job with keeping me on my feet.”

The haunted house is a great way to celebrate the spooky season with friends. Tickets go on sale every Sunday for the new week, with regular tickets starting at $32 and express tickets costing $50.

The experience lasts for approximately 30 minutes and is filled with music, props and actors. When entering the haunted house, expect to be greeted by a guide who will explain rules for being safe before entering a pitch-black maze. The experience starts indoors and ends outside with a small celebration for making it through.

According to the terroroftallahassee.com website, the experience is so extreme, anyone who is pregnant or suffering from a heart disease should refrain from visiting. The company believes their experience is better than most household names such as Universal Studios.

First year business administration student Makayla Gaines says her visit was worth it.

“Although I was scared the entire time, I am glad that I went and made it all the way through,” Gaines said. “I have been to Halloween horror nights in Orlando and Terror of Tallahassee was better in my opinion because I was in close proximity to the actors.”

Due to the nature of the event, children 5 and under are not permitted to attend. Parents who allow their child(ren) to visit should be informed that their child(ren) should not be afraid of the dark or prone to nightmares. The haunted house will remain in Tallahassee for one more week and has extended hours through Halloween, staying open from 7-11 p.m.
