The headline says it all people! DarkSyde Acres is hands down the best haunted house in Michigan. There's a que line with creepy and massively entertaining scenes, zombies galore....and cage dancers....and one of them.....is not all she seems....color me embarrassed for oogling a woman who was a man who looked like a woman....yeah.

Then the pirates, jumped up Christmas tree on fire....that's one set of lunatics you don't want to meet on a dark fishing pier.

All in all....it was the scariest, funniest, most over the top (and did I mention freaky as all hell) haunted house I have even had the misfortunate pleasure to enjoy! Will Totally be going back for a second dose!

The most wonderful people work there. I have had the opportunity to meet most the people out there. Darksyde definitely pushes the bar for Haunted Attractions for any haunted attraction I have ever been too. Another world at Darksyde stepping into the deep dark and mysterious. is definitely and understatement. You say nothing can scare you??? Well you have yet to experience The Darksyde!!! That is Darksyde Acres Haunted Attraction. Wonder what's gonna be lurking around the corner or in a hallways or possibly under your feet or above your head.. Love th Family at Darksyde Acres Haunted Attraction!!!!

DarkSyde Acres is one of the most unique haunts we have ever been too, the first time we went there I was amazed at the different approach taken compared to the numerous "cookie cutter" haunts I was used to in the past. Starting in the queue line, all the way through there is something to keep your interest (perhaps to distract) while all of the actors did their best to scare the crap out of you. The actors are very interactive and take their parts seriously pulling out all of the stops to scare, shock, and entertain you.

We look forward to coming years, wondering what horrors will be unleashed every new season.

Well worth the drive, no matter where you live....
Terrifyingly Terrific

I've been to SEVERAL haunted houses, in multiple states, and DarkSyde has been the only one to consistently have me jumping out of my skin. Too many of the others are cute and predictable...DSA will get you every time. Even if you go a second, third, or fourth time in one night. I honestly can say that I will be there every year, without a doubt. It's the best of the best, exceptional prices, and they even have kid friendly events throughout the year. Definitely worth checking out, at least once.

My experience at DarkSyde was way to unbelievable for words. The atmosphere was friendly, yet terrifying. The actors were amazing and so were the decorations. I went with my best friend and we just couldn't get enough of it! I highly recommed it, but it is NOT for the faint of hearted.

My wife and I travel the country visiting haunted attractions and locations, we even got married at Mansfield Reformatory; DarkSyde is by far one of our favorite haunted attractions. We make the 3 hour trip from Cleveland, Ohio every year and are NEVER disappointed with this venue. The place is so big and has so many attractions it's absolutely worth the drive from anywhere in the Midwest.

Happy Haunting DarkSyde!

Darksyde Acres Haunted House is one of BEST HAUNTED HOUSE IN MICHIGAN!!! We were driving around and found it one night. From the time you pull up to the place you get a feeling that you’re being watched by something. As you go thru the park you get a feeling as if something is there. By the end og the park you are scared and ready to get out of there It’s my number one pick. It will always be in the back of my mind.

I'm an aspiring haunter who has been looking to established haunters for advice and guidance. I had the pleasure of visiting Darksyde earlier in the year. To say the least, I was impressed. I love their actor based approach and unique scare tactics. It is a huge haunt. You get a lot for your money.

We were in the area looking for some Friday night fun when we happened to see the sign for this place. We followed the signs and arrived at the farm. Our first impression was "it's a farm, how scarey can this possibly get?" Well, we decided to give this haunt a try any way. After we paid at the ticket window, we walked around to the entrance and were met by this giant fellow dressed as an undead Elvis. Entering the que line we were entertained by several actors who made us forget that we had a 20 minute wait. there were so many different characters and sets that captured the imagination. The actors used a mix of imaginative horror and comedy in their acts which made for a nice break from the typical "boo" that you get from most other haunted houses. In a normal haunted house, this would make the sum total of what you paid admission for, but this was only the que line and we were soon to find out this was not your average haunted house. Not by a long shot.

When we finally made it through the que line we entered the haunt and were met by a stilt walker who ushered us down a stretch of hallway into the cemetery where we got our first scares of the night. the scares were a mix of quick scares and longer tensifying acts that would play off each other. The zombie at the end of the cemetery was especially disturbing to say the least.

After being chased down the hall from the cemetery, we were quickly met by eerie clowns who mentally violated us and left us feeling dirty. Believe me, the feeling just doesn't wash off!

Our next visit was in a black maze that kept us on edge at first, but then we came out of the maze to discover gorgeous undead vixens dancing in cages but this was only the bait that was used to set us up for the maniacs who were waiting for us. Nice bait and scare technique! But this wasn't the end. We came to an area where we found a stripper dancing on a pole. Very beautiful and graceful. After my buddy whistled to her, she came down from her stage and whispered something in his ear. I saw his face go from pleased to horrified. Quickly, he motioned for us to leave. As we stepped out I asked him what she said to him and he replied- "SHE IS A GUY". These people at truly twisted!

from there we walked over to the entrance of a pirate themed haunt. You can tell a LOT of time and effort went into this set. as we entered we got our first scare from what we thought was just a realistic looking prop followed up by a second scare from a pirate with a booming voice. I'm not going to give too many details away here, but this is the area that will give you the most scares and the most entertainment. The captain and the chop shop were the best! I can see why they saved this for last. It was the best of all the areas!

Once we got through the pirate ship, we entered the gift shop and found many souvenirs available to take home with us.

On our way back to the car, we discovered the zombie paintball challenge where you get to shoot at live actors. Then we happened to get one last scare as my buddy decided to use one of the portapotties. He opened the door and an actor dressed up in a giant psychotic bunny suit jumped out and scared the bejeezus out of him. My buddy walks back to us and said "I don't have to go now!" pointing to his soiled pants. Lol!

All in all, this attraction was great. Just when you thought it was over, it kept giving you more. Most haunted houses give you half as much or less for what you pay here. I hear they keep adding to it every year, so I'm definitely going to have to return next year!

Note: Use the portapotties BEFORE entering!

I have been a haunted house enthusiast for thirty years. I have traveled this our great state of Michigan looking for what I believed a haunt to be and always come up short, there are many great haunts here but I knew once I stepped into the indoor waiting line at Darksyde I had found what I was looking for...Darksyde Acres Haunted House puts you one on one with some of the most amazing actors in the business. From the time I walked in until I checked my back seat and slid into my car there were actors. Anyone can pop out and scare you but these people seem to be of a special breed that will scare you when you know they are right in front of you, or hidden in the toilet, behind a wall or on the other side of your car. Darksyde gets that you want to be entertained and they do not disappoint...

I am a really jumpy person but I'm pretty hard to actually scare. DarkSyde scared the ever living crap out of me! It was AWESOME! Best freaking shock therapy you can find this side of the horror circuit! Not only is it absolutely terrifying....it's immensely entertaining.

The que line was phenominal, the clowns leave you feeling dirty and used without ever even touching you (THAT'S TALENT!), the dancers will leave you bewildered and wanting more and the pirates.....holy crap on a cracker, I have no words for those scoundrels. You'll just have to see it for youself!

I enjoy going to haunted houses and as such, have become a haunt snob. There are very few that will even cause a reaction for me but Darksyde Acres made me jump numerous times. The first time I went there it was great because they have scares you don't see coming & it's not the same scares you see at other haunts. I was so impressed that I have made it a point to go back to Darksyde numerous times. They have added so many new things every year that it's never the same experience twice. If you haven't made it to Darksyde Acres Haunted Attractions yet then you are really missing a great haunt!

Darksyde Acres Haunted House is the AWESOMEST place in the whole world!
Me and some friends were bored one night last year so we went. My friends have been trying for three years to get me to come to The Darksyde. lol. I'm not really a Halloween buff and I don't really like scary movies, (OK. I'm just a sissy. lol) but they conned me into it.
Well, the ride there was scary enough. They are located in the rural outskirts of Jonesville, MI. As soon as you you leave town and turn down Concord Rd., it's get scary! At night, when it's dark, and there are no city street lights to envelope you in their warm glow..........yeah. Then you turn down this backwoods country road and you can almost hear banjo music playing in the back of your mind. I was terrified enough just thinking about the ghouls and monsters that awaited me at the haunted house already. I was petrified.
When we arrived, There was a little bit of a line but it moved very quickly and we got our tickets. I felt bad for Kacy because I was white-knuckling her arm. I'm not gonna tell you what happened as we walked down to the front door, before we entered into the buildings. Lets's just say one of my friends had to make a pit stop and she made it but not in the right place. OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!! IT WAS HILLLLLLLARRRRRIOUS!!!!!!!!
When we walked in, I thought we were in the first haunted house already because their indoor waiting is even scary. They had little scenes set up throughout as well as scary freaks placed in them. One girl asked me if she could be my girlfriend. lol. I told her she needed a doctor. Both kinds. Her makeup was awesome!!!!!!!!!
At this point I'm scared but at the same time I'm kinda relaxed. I thought that while these "monsters" were nasty gory, they were entertaining. I thought to myself, "I can do this! This isn't soo scary" Yeah! I was wrong. Lets just say there were THREE sets of wet pants on the way home! lol.
Darksyde Acres Haunted House in Jonesville, MI is a must do! Even for sissy, non horror movie watching, non- Halloweeneey being, people like me. My friends and I are planing on doing it again this year. We are bringing a bigger group with us this time too. I can't wait!!
Darksyde has it all! They will make you laugh. They will make you cry. They might even make you pee.
Can't wait to go back!

I've been through many haunted houses in my 42 years and this place tops the list. When I pulled in the parking lot the hair on neck stood up. This place oozes scary. It is an amazing site to see people scared so bad they lose control of their bodily functions. If you enjoy haunted houses, this is THE place to be. I have been through it the last 3 years, and it is never the same. Not your normal haunted house either. Most haunts you stand in line forever and have a 5 to 10 minute walk through. With Darksyde it seems to go on and on and on. I cannot wait to see what they have this year. My kids love the shoot the zombie paint ball game. They love shooting the undead zombies the wander endlessly.

There are new scares around every corner & because they seem to constantly change their scenes or add to them every year its always a new scare....

When we got there it was lit well enough to park and got to the ticket booth. It made us a bit nervous when we saw that they had a team of fire fighters and EMTs there on scene. We got our tickets from the Ladies at the ticket booth and walked down to the entrance. Before we even got inside we got our first taste of the show to come. There was a big bounding thing that got us all to move faster. Once we stepped inside we were greeted by "Dead Elvis" He showed us the way through to the line. And that's where the preshow began. There was the Insane Doctor that made us jump and laugh. There were people moving and doing things that really got us all keyed up and excited as we watched and waited for our turn.
Then we were sent on our way down a long dimly lit hall with instructions to go through the door around the corner. Damn but that door should have had a sign that said "Abandon all hope ye who enter here." At this point my wife was ready to turn back. But she wasn't going to go back by herself. Needless to say we kept going. We found ourselves walking into a graveyard that was right out of a horror flick. We jumped ran and screamed trying to find our way out. When we finally got out we paused for a moment to catch our breath when up behind us came a ghoul that freaked us out and we took off.

That's when we found ourselves and our senses assaulted by the freakiest clowns that I have ever seen. Between Bubbles and Pickles my wife made use of her depends. Thankfully we finally got past the clowns without too many embarrassing stains in at least my undies. Before we had gone to far we heard the pounding beat of industrial music, and were plunged into the darkness. Not even the light from our phones were much help. The first dancing girl was hot and drew us in. Then a guy scared the crap out of us and had us around the corner so fast I don't think any of us knew where we were at anymore. Then we stepped into a scene right out of a Mad Max movie. It was awesome, the girl on the pole was hot but then this guy that looked freaky as hell got us moving right along. Seriously I think his mom must have beat him as a child. But then we were back in the dark and chasing these little lights. We found another beautiful dancer and got scared again. finally we made it outside and into the night. It was by far the most thrilling and chilling haunt ever. Then we found out we were not done yet, not by a long shot. We were directed to the Dark Abyss. It was a pirate themed haunt, and OH MY GOD! It was the most intense haunt ever. The anticipation kept building as we walked in and found ourselves in this big cave looking place. The music sounded just like something out of a pirate movie. The Captain scared the crap out of me. and it just kept going. The second it seemed like it might be slowing down something new and scary as shit came along. By the time we got to the desk we had all messed ourselves at least a little bit. They have a really nice gift shop at the end, so we just had to get some souvenir to show that we had survived the experience. We thought that we had made it through

everything, but thankfully we were wrong again. It's like the awesomeness of this place never ends. They had a couple bon fires going and there was the zombie paintball. Good Lord this guy done up as a zombie was in this little space dancing when we got up there. We thought it was going to be easy to shoot him and get at least some of our man cards back. Nope this guy was a freakin ninja. Bobbing and weaving as the paintballs flew around him. It was awesome! Then we noticed the concessions stand. We went up there thinking that they would only have chips and pop. Thankfully we were wrong again. They had coffee and pop and all kinds of treats and the best fudge. And to top it all off it was served by this really nice lady. Can't beat the comfort food after all the activity.

DarkSyde Acres is one of the most unique haunts we have ever been too, the first time we went there I was amazed at the different approach taken compared to the numerous "cookie cutter" haunts I was used to in the past. Starting in the queue line, all the way through there is something to keep your interest (perhaps to distract) while all of the actors did their best to scare the crap out of you. The actors are very interactive and take their parts seriously pulling out all of the stops to scare, shock, and entertain you.

We look forward to coming years, wondering what horrors will be unleashed every new season.

Well worth the drive, no matter where you live....
Terrifyingly Terrific

I've been to SEVERAL haunted houses, in multiple states, and DarkSyde has been the only one to consistently have me jumping out of my skin. Too many of the others are cute and predictable...DSA will get you every time. Even if you go a second, third, or fourth time in one night. I honestly can say that I will be there every year, without a doubt. It's the best of the best, exceptional prices, and they even have kid friendly events throughout the year. Definitely worth checking out, at least once.

My experience at DarkSyde was way to unbelievable for words. The atmosphere was friendly, yet terrifying. The actors were amazing and so were the decorations. I went with my best friend and we just couldn't get enough of it! I highly recommed it, but it is NOT for the faint of hearted.
Amazing!

This is such a great place to get a spook in. I went with a friend of mine and I remember holding onto her for dear life as actors came out of every nook and cranny possible. Whenever someone wants to go to a haunted house I tell them to go to Darksyde Acres.

The most wonderful people work there. I have had the opportunity to meet most the people out there. Darksyde definitely pushes the bar for Haunted Attractions for any haunted attraction I have ever been too. Another world at Darksyde stepping into the deep dark and mysterious. is definitely and understatement. You say nothing can scare you??? Well you have yet to experience The Darksyde!!! That is Darksyde Acres Haunted Attraction. Wonder what's gonna be lurking around the corner or in a hallways or possibly under your feet or above your head.. Love th Family at Darksyde Acres Haunted Attraction!!!!

The headline says it all people! DarkSyde Acres is hands down the best haunted house in Michigan. There's a que line with creepy and massively entertaining scenes, zombies galore....and cage dancers....and one of them.....is not all she seems....color me embarrassed for oogling a woman who was a man who looked like a woman....yeah.

Then the pirates, jumped up Christmas tree on fire....that's one set of lunatics you don't want to meet on a dark fishing pier.

All in all....it was the scariest, funniest, most over the top (and did I mention freaky as all hell) haunted house I have even had the misfortunate pleasure to enjoy! Will Totally be going back for a second dose!

(and bringing spare undies this time)
