Q – Is your Haunted Drive family-friendly?

A– The Haunted Drive will have sections that may not be suitable for very young children, although the discretion will be left up to the parent.

Q – Can I park to get out to walk around or stop along the road?

A –No. There will not be any facilities available for guests during the event. The event will be set up as a Haunted Drive along the parks main road. Estimated drive time 15 - 20 minutes. Stopping along the roadway is not encouraged.

 

Q – Can I bring my pet?

A – We discourage pets to be brought on the Haunted Drive for the safety of the scream team, the safety of the pet, and the safety of visitors.

During normal business hours and operations, leashed and well-behaved pets are welcome to accompany our park guests in designated public use areas allowing pets. The entire pet policy standards for the FPS can be viewed by visiting: http://www.floridastateparks.org/thingstoknow/petpolicy.cfm


 

Q – Can I enter the park before the event and stay?

A – No. Park staff will close the park at sunset. All visitors must exit. You may reenter when the event opens. At that time, you will be directed to the ticketing team to pay your entry and receive your Halloween goodie bag. You will then be directed along the drive. Please use extreme caution as all areas will be highly congested. Drive slow. Max 10 mph. Leave plenty of space between your and the car before you. Pay close attention to traffic directors along the way.


 

Q – Is the event kid friendly?

A – Yes. We are working together to make this a kid friendly event. Although there may be sections that may startle or scare some children. After all this is a Halloween Haunted Drive.
