Northwest Indiana Haunted House
4700 Central Ave
Lake Station, IN 46405
What are the hours of operation?
Haunted Hills Hospitals Box Office and Mayhem Midway will be open from 6pm until 11PM Fridays and Saturdays. Thursdays, Sundays, and other nights we will be open from 6:00pm until 10pm. The Haunted House admits first customers at 7:00 pm each night (see calendar for full list of dates and hours) Any patron who is in the Mayhem Midway before the box office closes will gain admission. Box office will never close earlier than posted times barring special circumstances.
What time does the line start forming?
Typically 30 minutes prior to the Box office opening, but as we get closer to Halloween the crowds get larger.
How long is the wait in line?
In general, we try to keep the wait time to under 1 hour. However, the later in October and on Halloween the wait time will be much longer. Buy your tickets online to avoid the box office line and try to come earlier in October if you would like to avoid the longer wait times!
How long does it take to go through the haunted house?
That depends on many factors. First you must buy your tickets, then wait to enter the haunt. Once you enter, you go through at your own pace so the length of the experience varies from group to group. The wait times get longer the closer it gets to Halloween. You may encounter wandering creatures the moment you enter the midway area, so be on your guard!

Is smoking/consuming alcohol allowed?
Smoking is allowed only in the parking lot. Please refrain from smoking once you are in the midway area. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed on HAUNTED HILLS HOSPITAL property
Can we take flash photos of your haunted houses?
NO photography of any sort is allowed in the haunt. Haunted houses are dark and people's eyes (especially the actors) adjust to the low light. When you flash your camera you're not only ruining other customers' experience but you're hurting the actors' eyes. Also, the fog used inside the attractions ruins flash photography. Although no photography or videotaping is allowed inside (including nightshot), the patients working outside will quite often pose for pictures.
What can't we bring with us inside your haunted houses?
No pets! No weapons! No alcoholic beverages! No cameras! No smoking! No laser pointers or flashlights! No food or beverages!
Do you sell beverages, food, and souvenirs at your attractions?
