Haunted House Review of Lake Hickory Haunts – Hickory, North Carolina

By Hauntworld Magazine
 

To learn more about Hickory, North Carolina's Lake Hickory Haunts visit their websit below. When you're trying to find the biggest, scariest, haunted houses you find them at Hauntworld.com   Lake Hickory Haunted Screampark features multiple haunted houses in one location is located just a few miles outside of Charlotte, North Carolina. 


Intro & Innovation
Located in Hickory, North Carolina, Lake Hickory Haunts is commonly known as the best haunt in the Carolina’s.  Lake Hickory Haunts is a massive, multi-attraction theme park featuring nine unique haunted house attractions surrounding a large body of water. Water is one of many elements that makes Lake Hickory Haunts such a thrilling and one-of-a-kind frightening experience. The growth of Lake Hickory Haunts was catapulted when its operators decided to build and install the Haunted Boat Adventure, the first professionally engineered moving boat ride ever in the haunt industry, but even that innovation was revamped.  The Haunted Boat Adventure was eventually replaced with new, bigger and better attractions. After all, the operators of Lake Hickory Haunts believe in constant innovation & renovation.  From the beginning, the Lake Hickory Haunts team continually pushed the envelope to create unique, larger-than-life, and never before seen sets, props, and special FX. All that combined with an industry leading group of actors, artists, builders and leaders, and you get a top rated, highly detailed, uniquely entertaining, and SCARY attraction that delivers a Halloween horror experience with both quality & quantity. As a result, Lake Hickory Haunts has developed into a Halloween horror themed amusement park which delivers the perfect balance of terror and entertainment that one must see to believe. From 4D experiences to overwater attractions and everything in-between, Lake Hickory Haunts exceeds industry standards and provides a truly impressive haunted attraction experience that keeps fans, haunt-goers and enthusiasts coming back year after year.
 

 


Lake Hickory Haunts utilizes a massive 60-acre plot, featuring 9 unique haunted attractions. All attractions are included in a single ticket price. There are indoor attractions, outdoor attractions, and scares in between with each delivering a wide variety of sets, scenes and scares. Best of all, Lake Hickory Haunts is unique to other attractions, as the entire tour is centered by a large body of water creating a chill-inducing backdrop. Throughout the whole venue, they showcase astounding special FX, actors, scares & sets using lighting, fog, scents, sounds, CGI, pyrotechnics & more. They custom build each haunted house attraction to ensure every set uniquely immerses its patrons into each theme. Guests experience the horror as if they were truly there, and each attraction seamlessly transitions from one to the next, so guests experience a full storyline throughout.

The Midway of Mayhem is the first attraction and offers activities, shops, and a wide variety of entertainment. Typically, the wait at most haunts is not a fun place to be, but it is at Lake Hickory Haunts, because their guests can enjoy midway entertainment and attractions until the DJ calls their group to enter. The Midway’s newest attraction is the 4D Asylum Experience which is an immersive 4-dimensional simulation that utilizes touch, smell, sight and movement to create a scary and realistic reenactment of asylum experimentation conducted by doctors and nurses during the late 1800’s. Another unique attraction featured on the midway is Relic, a voodoo themed mini-escape game which allows patrons 3 minutes to escape the room using clues & puzzles. Live entertainment can always be found on the midway whether it’s coming from the state of the art Lake Hickory Haunts stage, bellowing from the DJ Crows Nest, or from actors roaming amongst the crowd. Guests are always welcome to take photos & video to capture memories of their visit. Other midway offerings include: concessions, the Monster Mart gift shop, psychic readings, photo opportunities, an awe-inspiring overlook of the entire Lake Hickory Haunts tour & more. The Midway of Mayhem is only a taste of what is yet to come during a guest’s visit at Lake Hickory Haunts.


    
Upon entering the heart and soul of Lake Hickory Haunts, guest face their greatest fears in the Nightmare Factory. It’s an old decrepit 3500 square foot building with a mind of its own. Dr. Death and his nurses have created a fast-acting serum know as NR2. Upon entry, victims are showered by NR2, which takes their worst nightmares and turns them into reality. The Nightmare Factory aggressively delivers non-stop terror and scares throughout its entirety. Throughout this horrific beast, victims encounter Dr. Death, the Asylum, Granny’s House of Horrors, the Doll Factory, the Boiler room, and the Heart of the Factory. The Nightmare Factory is one of the most heart-pounding and challenging attractions. For this reason, some guests won’t even make it through before deciding it’s too scary. The Nightmare Factory is a horrifically perfect introduction of what’s more to come.
    
Between life & death, undead creatures wander endlessly in despair in the Lair of the Undead. Their souls are trapped in a realm between reality & dream, and they will do whatever it takes to regain their life. Some of these foul creatures have some soul left, some do not. Zombies, spirits, and everything in-between lurk within the lair. Some slow, some fast, but they all have one mission…to take a living soul and make it their own. The Lair of the Undead is a splendid showcase of Lake Hickory Haunts’ variety of industry leading actors, makeup, costumes and imagination.
    

 




Utilizing its unique location along the banks of Lake Hickory, Shipwrecked is an astonishing attraction within Lake Hickory Haunts. A crew of undead pirates are shipwrecked, the cause unknown; however, they blame the “mortals” for their luck. Now they seek revenge. This soulless crew of pirates have united with an insidious group of voodoo practitioners. Together, they seek to loot, torture, and massacre as many mortals as they can. Shipwrecked combines the classic theme of brutal undead pirates with ancient tales of voodoo & witchcraft. Together, they present an incredible, immersive storyline which simultaneously creates a threatening and uneasy environment for patrons. However, Shipwrecked is a walk-in- the-park in comparison to what lies beyond the depths of the jungle.
    
While some haunted attractions might have a weak spot in the middle of their tour, this is not the case at Lake Hickory Haunts. Right in the center of the hour-long tour, Extinction awaits. This one of a kind attraction combines incredible animatronics, ridiculous special FX, and unbelievable visuals. Grouped with a wide-array of sea-creatures, aliens, and mad-scientists, Extinction reigns itself superior to any other Sci-fi themed attraction. Before approaching the core part of Extinction, tension builds as guests travel through Mutant Alley. From Mutant Alley, guests see the smoke, hear the alarms, and feel the terror emitting from the entrance of Extinction and its facilities. Once inside, a sinister Xenomorph awaits. This alien has not come from outer space but has emerged from the depths below the dark waters of Lake Hickory. Known as Kluath, this creature has powers beyond human comprehension. Its intentions are world domination by means of mutation and genocide of the human race. Its menacing laboratory is found on the banks of the water. Inside, Kluath conducts abominable experiments in which humans, sea creatures, and many other life forms are genetically and physically combined or mutated to create a new race of abominable creatures. Kluath is building an army with plans to destroy all humans, and his sinister power is unmatched by any force in the world. Within Extinction, water, laboratories, and unknown dimensions await. Extinction is a state-of-the-art, Hollywood quality attraction. Extinction alone would be well worth the admission price.
    
After Extinction, guests make their way to a post-apocalyptic attraction, known as Aftermath. If you’ve ever seen Mad Max or Walking Dead, you can imagine what Aftermath is like. This attraction taunts guests with a giant territorial wall, like Alexandria in the Walking Dead. Guests come toe-to-toe with defensive survivalists on the brink of extinction. Using busses, cars, metal and anything else they can get their hands on, Aftermath inhabitants built a small city surrounded by walls to protect themselves from outside threats. Anything and anyone that doesn’t live within their walls are a threat to survival. Using guns, man-made weapons & tools, these once civilized humans are now a force to be reckoned with.
    
While Aftermath is threatening, the Slaughterhouse is sickening. Standing beyond the banks of Lake Hickory is an abandoned slaughterhouse. In the early 1900’s, this slaughterhouse was utilized mostly for cattle & chicken. Unfortunately, the slaughterhouse was closed & condemned when modern corporations took over the industry, but recently a hoard of brutal and cynical cannibals, led by a monstrous madman named Leatherface, have taken shelter inside, turning the old slaughterhouse into a sick and demented place of unthinkable horrors. The Slaughterhouse “family” have endless tools and torture devices used to kill captured humans. This horrifying attraction uses smell, touch, sound, climate control and visuals, bringing to life a new dimension of sick and twisted scares & scenes, and prepares guests for the insanity that’s next to come.


 


    
Once guests have survived the Slaughterhouse, their demise is apparent in Descent. Descent is a brand-new attraction for 2018. Throughout Descent, guests will make their way through a dark and treacherous descent into a cave with unknown horrors… and anomalies. Descent features an actual underground cave! That’s right folks, Lake Hickory Haunts will feature a real and legitimate underground cave. The cave is not just an illusion, guests will literally make their way underground to feature some of their greatest fears. Lake Hickory Haunts is holding true to its reputation by delivering another never-before seen attraction. Within the cave, guests will come face to face with even more fear-filled elements, creatures and special FX including catacombs, caverns, sewers, mineshafts, and total darkness. Descent is sure to be a top-rated haunted house attraction at Lake Hickory Haunts in 2018.  
    
Lastly, guests come face to face Boss the Clown and his Big Top Circus. Boss the Clown is one of the original and most well-known iconic characters. The Big Top Circus has served as a staple in Lake Hickory Haunts since opening in 2012. As guests approach the colorful and seemingly fun-filled Big Top Circus, they hear circus music, smell cotton candy, and watch as clowns dance around and entertain. The Circus is fun and unbelievably cool, but the fun ends where the terror begins, because this is just a trick to lure unsuspecting victims. Boss is another sick and twisted monster with cruel intentions. He brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘evil clown’. His Circus is known as the best evil circus in the Carolina’s. Boss and his clowns use sinister science and experimentation to mutate all humans into killer clowns. His goal…world domination. He is determined to place clowns at the top of the ‘food chain’. If anyone attempts to escape they will be captured and forcibly transformed. The madness, terror, and agony that wait within Boss’s Laboratory are beyond human comprehension. Once inside the Circus, there is no way to escape the horror’s which have been created by the sick and demented mind of Boss. Within the Big Top Circus, Lake Hickory Haunts showcases the nation’s best group of clown actors. They swing on rafters, stilt walk, jump from place to place, and they are insanely entertaining! Oh, and did I mention?... The Circus is 3D! What else would you expect from Lake Hickory Haunts? This dark, high energy, terrifying madness marks the end of the Lake Hickory Haunts tour. These clowns send patrons running for their lives through the exit and onto the midway, delivering the perfect ending of one of the best haunted attractions in the Carolina’s and throughout the nation.

The A-Team
    
Behind all the madness, Ryan Settlemyre, Co-Owner and Director of Operations at Lake Hickory Haunts contributes most of the haunt’s success to his team. “We have a core group of highly talented and dedicated individuals that I call our A-Team. Without them, Lake Hickory Haunts could not be what it is,” Ryan explained. His team includes an Actor Manager, Art Director, Build Crew, Maintenance, and Customer Manager to name a few.
    
Ryan and his team work together as a unit to achieve their objectives & goals. “Every year we hold a team meeting where we brainstorm our ideas. From there, we collaborate and come together on certain objectives that we want to achieve. These objectives range from building new attractions to improving our costume department and improving our staff’s acting skills. Our ultimate mission is to both scare and entertain, giving customers the most enjoyable and memorable experience possible.” Ryan further explained, “As long as Lake Hickory Haunts is in operation, we will make every decision based on our mission statement and core values. Our team is phenomenal, and I think it’s because everyone gets the mission. It’s not about us or our individual opinions. We believe whole heartedly the customer always knows best. Our haunt fans keep us in operation year after year. They’re the one’s who travel to Lake Hickory Haunts and pay to be entertained. Whether we’re working in January or October, our team consistently keeps the customers interest in mind.”

 
 

    
From young to old, goth to redneck, and everything in-between, Ryan’s team is as diverse as his monsters & haunted houses. “A-team is a group of completely unique individuals that come together for a common cause. Our cause is Lake Hickory Haunts and our haunt fans,” said Ryan. “Our team is made up of people who in most cases might never become friends, but because of Lake Hickory Haunts, unlikely friendships and relationships are made, and that is truly valuable. They are the reasons our team is so special, and why Lake Hickory Haunts will continue to succeed for decades to come.”

Kersey Valley Attractions is centrally-located in Archdale, North Carolina.  Tony Wohlgemuth, founder of Kersey Valley Inc., was nine years old when his family moved to the 60 acre farm in 1979.  Purposed as a Christmas tree farm, the property had several tobacco barns, a farm house and main residence.  The farm was a popular place to spend summers camping in the barns.  Tony and friends pulled power from the farm house by drop cord to one of the tobacco barns.  Just after midnight on a hot summer night a chandelier fell, stopping just inches from the boys lying in sleeping bags underneath it.  The end of the drop cord was caught by the window seal keeping the heavy iron light fixture inches away from hitting the boys.  The frightening occurrence spawned a dare between friends to enter the old house and restore the power, insisting someone must go upstairs to satisfy the dare.  One of the boys entered the house alone only to return moments later screaming that something was on his back.  He managed to scare up a family of bats, one landing on his back.  The incident shook the group of boys to the bone, creating an idea for a five room haunted house in the fall of 1985.


The House of Death came alive that year the last two weeks of October selling just over 1,000 tickets at $2 each.  Marketing efforts were limited to hand-drawn flyers given out at the boys’ high school.  By the 4th year, popularity for the attraction meant a 4 hour wait in line.  Tony knew it was time for a change and expanded the attraction with a walking trail in the woods.  When Tony met his wife, Donna, in college; she encouraged him to focus on his degree and career.  It became clear that a passion for the haunted attraction was undeniable.  Donna joined Tony to build the haunt and operate the attraction as a business.  Incredible growth followed.  The haunt was expanded further, creating a unique pathway through a dense forest of (Christmas) trees.  The name was changed to Kersey Valley haunted House & Forest the following year.  Each group of 8 guests was guided through the attraction, limiting throughput to 125 people per hour.  The next hurdle was increasing the throughput of the attraction to increase revenue.  Tony and Donna attended the 1996 IAAPA Conference and gained newfound knowledge of an unguided concept.  The entire (Christmas) tree area was redesigned, transforming rows of trees into areas that could accommodate walls and scenes to fit under the canopy of trees.  The haunt was very spooky and the business was transformed into an unguided format. The same year a domain name was sought out for the website and www.spookywoods.com was the perfect fit!  The new format reduced the wait to an hour or less and the throughput increased to over 800 people per hour.  The additional income generated from the dramatic increase allowed a much larger budget for improvements to the attraction.  
 

Haunted House Charlotte

As the haunt continued to gain popularity, Tony and Donna planned to expand their seasonal business while both still worked full time.  Tony suggested that a corn maze would be a great use of the 10-acres of farm land around the haunt and Maize Adventure was born marking the beginning of day time attraction offerings.  Trial and error lead them to Maze Play in Idaho that offered the technology required to design and cut out the maze using GPS.  Donna began researching day time field trip opportunities for school children.  The marketing was sent to schools within a 50 mile radius.  Those efforts began to pay off and soon the day time business was packing the farm with kids during the weekdays.  The focus shifted to expansion of the day time business to keep schools coming back each year.  Gem panning was discovered while on vacation in Tennessee.  A vendor that creates gem panning attractions was found at the next IAAPA conference.  A company from Canada was hired to build the attraction, expanding the educational opportunities to schools with an educational event on gems and fossils.  An outdoor classroom was designed providing more educational experiences for students such as Planting Seeds of Knowledge and Bee-Educated field trips.  As Maize Adventure gained popularity additional features were added, including a giant jumping air pillow.  The jumping pillow was installed and became an instant hit with children. 

The first pillow has just recently been replaced with two of the giant 40x70 pillows to reduce wait times for children to jump.

The Kersey Valley brand came alive when multiple attractions with distinct demographics were fully operational.  The portal site www.kerseyvalley.com was created to cross promote all events and attractions.  Each attraction and event maintains its own website also.


In 2010, Kersey Valley expanded into a year-round business with a 1.5 mile zip line tour across the farm.  Kersey Valley reinvented the zip line experience with engineered Sky Towers and best-in-class equipment.  The attraction is aviation themed boasting Coach and First Class ticketing options, Flight School, Sky Towers named after airport city codes and Flight Captains as zip line guides.  The Sky Towers were strategically placed to enhance cross promotion between attractions.  Opening year-round required permanent restroom facilities.  Tumbleweed’s, a state-of-the-art kitchen concession facility and restrooms were built.  A surprise is harbored in the women’s restroom; as guests approach the sink they activate a loud scream and ghost illusion in the mirror. 

Charlotte Haunted Houses

Kersey Valley Laser Tag, an outdoor tactical laser tag attraction, was added to the attraction line-up in 2012.  The attraction draws a diverse demographic as the equipment can be programmed for a simple game of shoot and tag to detailed programming for corporate groups with team-building initiatives.  Kersey Valley Laser Tag is a great option for birthday parties and bachelor parties looking for a unique celebration experience.

The humble beginnings of the haunted attraction business have allowed Kersey Valley to continue expanding and employ year-round staff.  Kevin Burger is the Safety Coordinator and managed construction of the massive zip line and restroom and kitchen facility build.  Kevin attended the Maize Adventure Corn Maze in 2000 with his church group, fell in love with the farm and never left.  Elizabeth Penn is the driving force behind sponsor partnerships with local and national corporate partners.  She wears many hats including promotional video coordination and design, special event planning such as Kersey Valley’s Dark Circus and is an integral part of the haunted attraction.  Chrissy Hughes is the Office Manager and master of the zip line reservation system.  She is the voice of Kersey Valley, answering hundreds of call a week with a smile.  Chrissy projects the fun attitude of Kersey Valley!  Tom Roever, Scot Edwards, Kevin Burger and Darrel Justice are several master carpenters that comprise the build crew creating the incredible sets at Spookywoods.  Steve Lee handles audio and lighting for the haunt.  Joh Harp and Amber Michael are the year-round FX team and set designers.  RJ Barber is the resident welder that can build anything the team dreams up.  Tom Benedict, Tony Forest, Wendy Martin, Ben Medlin, Kathy Justice and Steve Wood keep the haunt running like clockwork.  Tony comes up with the fun stuff and Donna keeps a close eye on the budget and pays for the fun stuff.  It takes an army of dedicated and talented people to run Kersey Valley.  The amazing staff is a result of the passion that Tony and Donna have to create stand out events and attractions; it’s contagious and it shows.

Charlotte Haunted House

The Christmas trees planted in 1980 saved the farm, becoming the backdrop to one of the most unique haunted attractions in the country.  Looking ahead, Tony and Donna have a list of dreams from weekend events to an event venue barn, seating 300 guests. 

If it’s a Kersey Valley event or attraction you’ll be right in the middle of the FUN STUFF!
