How do I get to the
Please visit our directions area for
maps and directions to Sloss Fright Furnace.
How long is the trail?
Sloss Fright Furnace offers three trails. The furnace trail is 1/2 mile of blood-curdling terror, and usually takes
between 20 to 30 minutes, depending on how fast you can run. The Woods trail is about 5/8 mile and takes about 10 to 15 minutes. Outbreak is our Zombie Obstacle course and takes between 10-15 minutes.
How do I get tickets?
Tickets may be purchased at the event, or you can order advance tickets
through ticketmaster, or even set up a group online. Visit our Ticket Section for more information.
How much is parking?
$5 per vehicle.
I am driving my kids there/I don't want to go through the trail -- Do I still have to pay?
No. You can enter the Roadkill Cafe FREE so you can watch movies, play games, eat, drink, and be social.
Will any of the creatures touch
Not if you don't touch them.
What happens if I touch/hit a creature?
There are a lot more of them then there are of you, and
they know where to hide, so you can probably expect some revenge
later down the trail. In addition, there is security personnel
throughout the site that will be notified of your actions--which
can lead to you being forcibly ejected from the trail (at the
very least) and arrest and detention (for severe cases). Just
keep your hands to yourself.
Do you take Credit Cards?
Yes, we do take credit cards on site or in advance for group
tickets here on our site.
What is the usual wait
Depends on several factors including the time and the day. However
Sloss Furnace is different from most haunted attractions since you
receive a pass when you first arrive, so you can spend your time
in our Roadkill Cafe watching scary movies,
playing games, getting your palm read, watching entertainment, etc.
When it is time for your group to go through, we will announce it.
Is there an age limit?
Not on the furnace trail. We leave that up to parents and guardians. We have had 6 year
olds go through the site unfazed, and watched as 30 year olds have
been carried out after fainting.
The woods trail is for ages 14 and up. Nobody under 14 is permitted without a guardian or written parental consent.
How much does it cost?
It depends on the day you visit, and how many trails you are doing. Please visit our tickets
area for prices.
Can I Bring A Camera,
Sorry, no. It is our policy to confiscate all recording equipment
before taking a tour through the furnace. No exceptions. Best to
leave it at home.
What if it rains?
We have only closed the trail once due to bad weather. Basically,
we stay open unless there is a chance of a lightning strike. Hey,
if a little bit of water scares you, you are coming to the wrong
Is the trail wheelchair
No. The furnace was built in the 1800's so there are lots of twists,
turns, stairs, small passageways, catwalks, etc.
Should someone who is
pregnant go through?
It is not recommended, but we leave it up to you.
Do you use Smoke Machines
Yep, and lasers, and blacklights, and explosions, and fire, and even a 10,000 volt tesla coil.

Is sloss furnace really
Yes. Very much so.

6 prominent Paranormal Investigation Teams,
and hundreds of witnesses who have had sightings. Come see for yourself.
