The Labyrinth:
This Haunted Attraction is Weather Permitting.
DarkSyde Acres has nearly doubled the size of our Family Friendly outdoor maze for those to scared to enter the Indoor Haunted Houses. Inhabited by the everso not fierce and un-intimidating Panda bear of DarkSyde Acres with a few of his equally wacky friends. This silly trio is sure to send you the wrong way every time.

Full of twists and turns, you’re sure to get lost…pack a lunch and bring a friend, this could take awhile. The Labyrinth is a NO SCARE Family Friendly attraction designed as an affordable way for the younger guests and those to scared to go into the indoor Haunted Houses to be able to experience DarkSyde Acres. You will find the Labyrinth situated near the Midway events.

Warning! This is not a Corn Maze.

Zombie Massacre Paintball:
Michigan’s one and only Original Zombie Paintball Challenge where you can shoot live action Zombies with Paintball guns. The Zombie Master Jared at DarkSyde Acres Haunted House dragged a few of the more violent Zombies, that didnt play well with others out of the Catacombs and placed them inside of the Zombie Paintball secured shooting gallery. On top of that we have outfitted our shooters with military grade AR-15 style Paintball Guns for maximum destruction! Everyone loves shooting Zombies, now is YOUR chance, Get in line, Grab a gun and start shooting. Best part of DarkSyde Acres Zombie Paintball is that the zombies DONT shoot back!

Darksyde Carnivale:
A mish mosh of degenerates from all corners of the earth put together for your viewing entertainment! This traveling band of Gypsie rogues camped out at DarkSyde one night last summer and never left.

Fire eating, Fire breathing, Fire poi, Bed of Nails, Glass eating, Juggling, Fortunes read, you name it. These psychos are doing it every weekend during haunt season. They’ve even got a not so honest to goodness Ring leader, who goes by the name of Ring Master Baiter, who runs the show and is control of all of his little evil minions at the DarkSyde Carnivale.

Be sure to visit our midway and catch their freakish acts of self mutilations. Email Haunt Owner

Review This Haunt
  • Not worth the drive

    Went to this a few years back.. Forgot I even went to it until I showed up this past Friday and realized the setting that I had been to this haunt before. A lot has changed! They've gotten better but man... This haunt is so big that they need more actors... I was trying to scare my friends just because we did a lot of walking and there was times that they could have gotten us really good and just didn't bc of the lack of employees. I thought it was seperate haunted houses... It's not... Just different themes all linked into one. I could have taken my daughter through this and she would have are it through... If I lived in the area it would have been worth it but I was from an hour away.... And recruited 3 first timers... They weren't very impressed. Overall if I lived nearby I'd go but maybe ill try again in a few years!

  • So scary you will slap your mother

    They have it all, from zombies to crazy clowns and pirates galore. The only thing missing is the extra pair of undies you will need to buy after you go through any of the attractions.

  • Hanging on for dear life!

    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.

  • Amazing!

    This place is amazing! Not for the faint of heart. You never know what is coming next. You think you are all good, and Bam they get you again. After it is over you don't know if you want to laugh or cry that you survived it!

  • Zombies, pirates and a tranny...oh my

    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 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 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)

  • Darksyde Acres. Haunted Attraction A MUST!!

    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!!!!

  • One of a kind Haunted House

    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.

  • DarkSyde Acres Haunted House

    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.

  • Bring your extra undies!!

    I took my 15yr old n her friend, they were scared the entire time in all 3 houses, A few times i was spooked pretty darn good too!! Awesome costumes, delicious refreshments available, super hot bonfire etc etc... Was worth the 1.5hr drive and the $106.00 ticket i got for speeding when leaving as the kids & I were rehashing what we just lived through and not paying attention!!! :) Can't wait to come back!!!

  • Best All Around Hands Down!

    My brother and I went out one dark and spooky night. Even the ride out was creepy. I love the fact that it is in the middle of no where. The place gives you the creeps from the parking lot to the end. I love haunts with lots of interaction and not so many pop out animatronics. So many real people to jump out and get you. Will be going again this year for sure...may have to bring some fresh undies for the ladies LOL.
