At Sherwood Scare, we use our combined skills as filmmakers and artists to fill our haunt with the best scares our imaginations can dream up. Our haunt is known for its strong focus on story and unique characters. The goal is to make attendees feel as if they are immersed in a horror movie-like experience where anything can (and will) happen.

A tremendous amount of detail and production design goes into every room and hallway in the haunt. Once you're inside, we don't want anything taking you out of the experience.

Each year, the theme is completely revamped with a new story and layout from the ground up which gives guests a completely new encounter.

All of Sherwood Scare’s profits go to Big Worm’s Cystic Fibrosis Life Foundation. The foundation’s main mission is to help ease the time for CF patients during hospital stays for frequent "tune ups" of IV antibiotics by giving them tangible gifts. 

CF patients are referred to the foundation through social workers at Children's Hospitals. Big Worm’s Cystic Fibrosis Life Foundation provides age-appropriate gifts on request such as video games, laptops, MP3 players, guitars, DVD players and various toys. Until a cure is found, the profits from Sherwood Scare can make a difference in the lives of children with Cystic Fibrosis.

Making an amazing haunted house isn’t easy, especially when every year we strive to create a new theme that is just as detailed as the year before. While we have awesome family and friends who volunteer their time to help construct and perform in the haunt, we need your tax-deductible donations to help us afford building materials, production design, lighting, special effects, make-up, wardrobe, and many other things that go into creating an epic production.

Risks and challenges

After the project is funded, our group of volunteers will be 100% committed to the completion of the event. Our first two years were more successful than we ever could have imagined, with over 10,000 people coming through the haunt. Like our previous years, we are expecting to face many unique challenges. But the challenges we face is what makes the building process so much fun!

* Front-of-the-Line tickets are valid every night except Halloween.
