What a fun time for the family! I have been over 30+ haunted houses in my life and can honestly say …show more this was the best experience we ever had. Give that we cant safely visit indoor haunted houses this was a great effort. They made you laugh, scream, and freak out. Are they going to break your car windows and take your girlfriend into the woods. NO! I will be looking fwd to see how this event gets better in the future.

Came out first weekend and it rained the whole time. The attraction seemed very limited on scenes …show more and scares. The actors looked miserable; however, with Halloween being my family’s favorite time of year we came out again on Saturday to give them a 2nd chance with the beautiful weather. We could immediately see they made many changes. Added a ton of cool lighting more scenes and changed up some other scenes. Clearly they saw a need for improvement. We look forward to seeing what Terror in the Timbers has in store for next year!

WOW!! Can’t believe the bad reviews…. maybe they have added actors and scenes since early …show more October… we had a blast!, The campground is perfect for a drive through attraction. Lots of laughs and plenty of screams as well! Do not listen to the bad reviews. In my opinion this was well worth the money. The potential is there to continue to add more actors and scenes for next year…Enjoy!!!
