It was requested in the top 13 haunts thread to get a look inside the Dent Schoolhouse. I don't have any video readily available...so here are a few pics of some of our scenes to give you an idea of what you might encounter.

Dent Schoolhouse was my favorite part of the MHC last summer!!! Looking at these photos just brought all the warm and fuzzy feelings back all over again. I said it then, I'll say it now...you guys do a PHENOMENAL job, from the sets all the way down to the actors.

ah, Home sweet Home. Josh Wells is the Master of those rooms you see.

I get the pleasure of watching them build and hang out in that place which for 3 years I call home.

Dent was much more impressive than other "Top Rated " Haunts I've been to. I went in the off season (MHC Tour) and can only imagine what it's like during the Fall! It is one of the few haunts that I wanted to go through again - immediately after exiting.

Excellent Sets, Actors and Fun Factor!!! Awesome job!

The Dent Schoolhouse is an incredible haunt to say the least and for it to not be considered for the Top 13 Haunts List would be a shame. It has an incredible amount of detail, dynamic lighting, great sound, incredible back story and a group of dedicated actors that don't let up. The pictures you are viewing look like the lights are on, so just imagine this place with the lights off. That's when the real fun begins. Not only is Dent a fantastic haunt, it's one of the oldest haunts in the United States today and has some truly genuine people who bring it to life. So if any haunt deserves to be on the Top 13 Haunts List, it's The Dent Schoolhouse for sure.

Larry if you ever want a story on the behind the scenes of The Dent Schoolhouse just let me know. I would gladly write an article for Hauntworld Magazine and would take plenty of pictures. I only live about 20 minutes from The Dent Schoolhouse so it wouldn't be a problem.

Great theme trailer on your site! I googled your address and can't beleive how perfect that building is. You had a great canvas to start with and have done it justice with your build.

Thanks for all the great comments! We are putting together a video of last year’s show to give everyone a better feel of what the haunt is like in action. In the meantime here are some more pictures, or you can also check out our website... frightsite.com

One of the best I have ever been too. It should be a top thirteen easily.

What's the sq ft?

The attraction is about 18,000 sqft, consisting of 42 scenes, and takes between 20 and 30 minutes to tour. The haunt is themed to a 1950 era schoolhouse consisting of scenes you would find in an old high school, and revolves around a story line involving a suspicious janitor and missing school kids. A video will be posted soon...

I cant wait to see that VIDEO.
What you just described sounds soooo COOL!

I went through the Dent Schoolhouse last year at MHC and I have to say that of the many, many haunts I have visited, the Dent is by FAR the best in terms of theming, scares, and actors all working together. In my opinion, it is my favorite haunt in the US.

hope this helps
