Will SCAREWOOD scare me and my family?

We are asked this question on many occasions and we find it very difficult to respond. It really depends on you. Some people will have a strong reaction and require assistance while some dont at all.  In this way, SCAREWOOD is like a rollercoaster, some people are terrified, some people love it and want to go again and again and some people say, ‘oh the view from the top was good’.

If I bring my child, what happens if they get too scared?

If the child (or adult) gets too scared during the experience you can exit at designated intervals.

If we exit half way because a member of our group too scared, can we get a refund?

SCAREWOOD operates a No Refund Policy. If you need to leave because you are too scared then we did a great job.
