  • Email Verified Great great scare

    This haunted house is definitely up at the top of the list of must-sees on Long Island. We came from Nassau and it is sooo worth the drive. This year is the 20th anniversary and they've added many new scenes and rooms and themes! Very cool, dont want to spoil anything. But let's just say this haunt has A LOT of things that the others dont !!

  • Email Verified Scariest Haunt I've been to!

    Best haunted house on Long Island hands down! Each room is extremely well thought out. You can tell a lot of effort is put in by the owner to make every square foot as scary as possible. The actors are amazing as well, you never know where they are going to come out of!

  • Email Verified Amazing

    The cast of actors inside the haunt were absolutely amazing. Very interactive with the groups going through. I had gone twice this season with my friends and family. One Monday and one Saturday. One of the times I was there shortly after they opened, and the second time, we were one of the last groups through. Yet both times the performance was 10/10. They didn’t lack just because I?t was the end of the night, and it wasn’t exactly the same as the first time we went through. The actors change their lines based on the groups that go through and I love that about them. The sets and makeup were incredible, the location of the haunt is creepy in itself, the cast and crew outside the haunt are so friendly and make waiting not so bad. There is clearly a lot of thought and hard work put into this show and it shows 100%. From the scary guys with the chainsaws, the clowns, the dolls, and the victims, they put on a great show and me and my whole group got scared over and over again. Highly reccomend and I will definitely be returning next season!!!

  • Terrifying the moment you leave your house

    Darkside is located in such a quiet, middle of no where area, that even the drive there is horrifying. You expect the people from the Hills have eyes to find you during the drive. Once you arrive, the atmosphere is incredible. The music playing to set the Halloween mood, as you start to move online you can hear the gate keeper (later I found out he's Mr.Z) ripping people apart in a sarcastic matter. That's all I'll tell you, this haunted house scared the crap outta me. Worth every penny, absolutely the best on Long Island, in all of New York hands down.

    Amazing set and energy, but most importantly AMAZING actors!!!!!! They actually created a dialogue with the customer and hot in their face instead of just making sounds and sitting in place!!

  • 5 Stars!

    Terrifying, top-notch acting, entertaining, engaging, and 10x what every other haunt on the Island offers. Bigger and better every year. Original scares, 110% attention to detail. Intriguing characters, creative and enthusiastic dialogue, the only haunt that really interacts with patrons.

  • Email Verified Scary good time

    What a great haunted house. We had so much fun. We hadn't been there in two years and couldn't believe how much has changed. We love haunted houses and try to go to as many as we can each year but we always come back to Darkside. It is truly one of the most immersive haunted houses we have ever been to from the sets, to the sounds, lighting and especially the actors who you can tell really love their jobs. There is something that sets this haunted house apart from the others and is definitely a must see. Thank you Darkside for a great time!

  • Fantastic

    I have seen them all and I thought I couldn't be impressed anymore. I felt this place was way to far to try out and I haven't heard much about them but being that we have hit all of the rest we decided to venture out this far. It clearly was fantastic I can't wait till next year. It was endless with nonstop action but more important detail oriented Great job mike you outdid yourself

  • doooo it!

    Get there early to avoid the wait. I arrived around 5:50 was first in line and waited about 20 minutes for them to open. The characters on the line were fun to interact with before entering. Both the outside and inside portions were great ,pretty scary, and were creative and detailed. They add a personal touch with the actors yelling your name. Highly recommend anyone to go. I will be returning next year.

  • Great sets but that was about it

    Went with my family. Waited forever. Doesn't take very long to get through and based on the price. Not really worth it.

  • A great Haunted House! Very well done

    I went to Darkside about 15 years ago and had a great time them. It has come a long way and has expanded into a very elaborate walk. My wife and I went 10/27/15 much to her dismay. Well...she didnt make it very far. She wound up bailing out one of the exits and left me to finish the walk myself. I dont scare very easily and there were a few moment where they genuinely got me. I would say that is a great success!! This will now become a yearly ritual for me!!
