That depends on many factors. First you must buy your tickets, then wait to enter the haunted attractions.

You may encounter wandering creatures the moment you enter the midway area, so be on your guard!

NO photography of any sort is allowed inside the haunt. Haunted houses are dark and people's eyes (especially the actors) adjust to the low light.

Although no photography or videotaping is allowed inside (including nightshot), the creatures working outside will quite often pose for pictures.
