How long does it take to experience the event?

When attending ScareGroundsPDX, we recommend guests make a full night of it and experience ALL the Halloween Attractions and Thrill Rides the park has to offer. However, for guests who only go through the main (3) Haunted House Attractions, be prepared to stay at the event for at least (1) hour; if not longer depending on queue lines and attractions you wish to visit. While all groups travel at different paces, all three of our haunted houses take approximately 10-minutes each to complete and there are a variety of other attractions and things to do around the grounds. We have a HARD CLOSE at our listed closing times. Guests should try to show up at least an hour prior to closing to ensure that they have ample time to experience as much as possible at the ScareGrounds this year!


Are the Haunted Attractions Wheelchair Accessible?

While we design our attractions to be wheelchair accessible, some of the pathways are on non-paved areas and may be difficult to navigate with rainy weather and guest traffic. If you need assistance or have any questions we encourage you to reach out to 

We recommend push chairs while attending the ScareGrounds. 


Is there and age restriction to attend?

No! We do not have an age restriction to attend ScareGroundsPDX. Children under 12 may attend if they are accompanied by an adult. Children must be able to walk on their own, must not be carried, and adhere to all the ScareGrounds policies while inside the attractions. There are emergency exits throughout each attraction should the experience end up being too scary. Please keep in mind, there are no refunds at ScareGroundsPDX and we will not be able to refund tickets for individuals or youngsters who leave the attractions early. 


Does ScareGroundsPDX still offer a 'less scary' haunt experience? 

ScareGrounds PDX will no longer be offering the option for a less scary haunt experience. Guests were provided with a glow stick before entering the attractions so our monsters inside would be able to see who was needing a less scary experience. We have decided to remove this option after many guests arrived with glow sticks as part of their own accessories and were not aware that this would impact the scare levels inside the event. 


What is Social Sharing?

ScareGroundsPDX will reward you when tickets are  purchased from the Social Sharing link we provided at the time of your purchase.

Your phone is your ticket. We can scan the QR code directly from your phone at the entry of the Haunted Houses. You will need to show your QR code ticket at each Haunted House to be verified.

Are dogs allowed at ScareGroundsPDX?

We at ScareGrounds PDX all love our furry friends, but due to the larger crowds and noise levels at our event we recommend your dogs stay home while you come out to enjoy the Halloween fun. Service dogs are permitted in the general areas but must be leashed at all times. Service dogs will not be permitted to enter the haunted attractions, this is for their safety. ScareGrounds PDX crew members are not permitted to take control of a service dog, however we can offer a group split option so your Service dog can wait at the exit for you with someone in your party and they will be given a immediate entry through our VIP line. Guests can email if they have any questions regarding dogs attending the amusment park.
