How SCARY is HHN?

Is this ok for a 14 year old? She loves haunted houses, I hate being scared, but might be willing to suck it up for her.

I went when I was 20 and was terrified. I hate to be scared and I hated every minute of being there. The haunted houses are extreme and characters are constantly scaring you on the streets. I had nightmares for a week afterwards. But again I hate this type of thing.

I went to my first HHN when I was 14. Some of my friends started going at 13. We all were hooked from our first year. I think if you have a mature 14-year-old (or at least, one that enjoys that kind of thing), she'll love it.

This will be our first time there next week~ but when I asked this same question a while back, the answer was... more rated R scarey than PG-13. But to me those are both really scarey...

Thanks everyone, still not sure. She goes to the Haunted Houses in the area which I hear, are pretty good. She loves this kind of stuff. Now I am beginning to think I might not like it.

I went some years back with someone who was absolutely afraid of this kind of stuff. Hates scary movies. Is literally afraid of the dark and thunderstorms. She was like 21 at the time.

She was looking miserable when we first got there, as if she expected to have the scariest time of her life.

But by the middle of the night, she was laughing along with screaming.

She ended up saying it wasn't as bad as she thought it would be and it helped being with a group. The people jumping out at her were funny, according to her.

I just think it depends on the person.

Definitely depends on the person. We took friends with us this year and one daughter was terrified. She is 18.

One thing is for sure - if they sense (hear) your fear they will not leave you alone.

This year I also saw a person running out of a house, through the entrance!

Cheers!
