Accessibility

Frolic’s Haunt is committed to being accessible for as many different disabilities as possible. This means:

♦ All paths and doorways throughout the Haunt are 36″ or wider, and there are no tight turns that would be difficult for a wheelchair.

♦ While we do use mood lighting in the Haunt, there won’t be any extremely low-light “dark areas” where visitors can’t see the path ahead.

♦ Our actors and other staff will avoid the use of scents and fragrances, as these can cause problems for folks with chemical sensitivities.

♦ No sirens are used in the Haunt, as sirens can make haunts inaccessible to folks with sensory difficulties.

♦ We have touchable props that our blind visitors can interact with (if they wish).

♦ Frolic’s Haunt will never use ableist props/scenes like straitjackets, “evil doctor” characters, “mental asylum” rooms, or “butcher hospital” rooms.

♦ While fog machines may be used outside far from where visitors are standing, fog machines will not be used near our lineup queue or inside confined areas where the fog could aggravate respiratory conditions.

♦ We don’t use strobe lights, as these can cause migraines or seizures.

♦ We have a wheelchair-accessible restroom available to visitors.

♦ We will have an ASL interpreter available to go through the Haunt with our Deaf visitors to translate what our actors say.

♦ There are no elevation changes, ramps, or stairs to create problems for those using walkers, wheelchairs, or with depth perception difficulties.

♦ Our “Choose Your Scare” system allows those with anxiety disorders (or folks who don’t enjoy being scared) a high level of control over their experience.

♦ Service animals are welcome at the Haunt. If there’s any possibility that your animal might attack an actor defensively if they come close, please let us know at the door so we can ensure our actors stay back.

♦ Emotional support animals are also welcome as long as they don’t present a risk to other patrons, other animals that may be there, and Haunt staff. Keep in mind that a Haunt is an enclosed environment with unusual lights, sounds, and motion, and this may be stressful to many animals that haven’t been given the same strenuous training as service animals. As above, let us know if there’s any risk that your animal may be defensively aggressive toward staff.
