Will you enter the dark and terrifying realm of Alura Botanica?
Her gnarled branches will twist and contort your every fear into reality, right before your eyes. Once she has you in her firm and unforgiving grasp, she will never let you go.
This is no ordinary forest.
This is one where no one makes it out....ALIVE.
Thank you to our sponsors!
These ghouls and boils have made so many screams come true...

Q: Where is the maze located?
A: NEW! For 2023, we will hold our maze on the flat floor of the Florence Events Center. This space is more than double the size, with more than quadruple the scares. It is indoors, with restroom facilities and concessions (see below for more info).
Q: How much does it cost?
A: $12 per person. $44 for a "family of four" discount. All tickets will be sold at the door ONLY and are first come, first served. Cash & Credit Cards are accepted.
Q: Is it scary?
A: Yes, this maze is considered very "scary." It contains both youth and adult actors, and many terrifying scenarios, props, and special effects. Despite C.R.O.W. being a youth organization, it is not a "kiddie maze." Remember....we are theatre people.
Q: How long does the maze last?
A: The maze is approximately 10-15 minutes in length, but it all depends on how fast your feet take you through. Some people can't wait to get out, while others want to go more slowly and enjoy the terrifying sights.
Q: How long is the wait time?
A: The maze is a highly desirable local haunted attraction, so wait times can be long. Please plan accordingly. If you arrive early, you are more likely to experience a shorter line. Feel free to take advantage of concessions while you wait. See question below for more info.
Q: Is there food available on site?
A: Themed concessions including adult beverages will be available on site this year! Thank you to the Florence Events Center! Please note the concessions area closes at 8 pm. There is a fun & spooky lounge room available for you to enjoy your tasty treats before or after the maze.
Q: What's "Less Scary Hour?"
A: This is exactly what it sounds like. This "less scary" hour will still contain all of the same props and special effects, but there will be no jump scares and fewer, more friendly wandering monsters. This is a great time to come if you are a small child or a big chicken. Small children must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Disclaimer: The maze itself will still contain many scary visuals and props. Entry is at your own risk, and with parental discretion!
Q: Is the maze ADA Accessible?
A: Yes, our maze can be enjoyed by ADA persons in wheelchairs (small chairs, non-motorized recommended), or with canes, walkers, etc. Please note, entry is at your own risk and although the maze layout is designed for entry by ADA individuals, it is still a haunted maze, and there will be tight corners, fog, special lighting (i.e.-strobes), startles, loud noises, monsters, etc. Please know what you're in for!
Q: What about other medical issues I may have?
A: Entry is at your own risk. Do not enter the maze if you have heart issues, or any other medical condition that might be impacted by a sudden scare or special effects such as strobe lights, fog, etc.
Q: Am I allowed to smoke?
A: There can be no smoking (including vaping) inside the maze, in line, or anywhere near the event. Due to the many flammable props, etc, no flame of any kind is permitted.
Q: Can I bring a flashlight?
A: Nope. Illumination devices of any kind are not allowed inside the maze, as it ruins the effect. This includes flash lights, phones, glow sticks, etc. You are supposed to be scared in the dark. That's the whole point.
Q: What about valuables?
A: C.R.O.W. is not responsible for the loss of any valuables. If you are worried about losing it, don't bring it. This includes cell phones and anything else that might fall out of your pocket or purse when you are startled. Please leave all valuables at home!
Q: Can I take photos of the maze?
A: We encourage you to take pictures OUTSIDE of the maze. No photography or video recording of any kind is permitted inside the maze. There will be a photo station near the exit for those who are brave enough to have their picture taken after the maze.
Q: How many people go through the maze at a time?
A: We typically send people through in small groups of no more than 4. If your party is larger, we can make an exception, but you will find it much more fun if you go through in a small group. Monsters like to isolate you before they eat you.
Q: Any other attire rules?
A: No Halloween masks are permitted while walking through the maze. This is for your safety. No large backpacks or bags of any kind are permitted inside the maze, so please leave them in your car or at home. Purses are permitted, but must be worn at all times. It is recommended that you wear closed toed shoes.
Q: Is your maze indoors?
A: Yes, the maze is located inside the flat floor portion of the Florence Events Center.
Q: Is the C.R.O.W. Haunted Maze a fundraiser?
A: C.R.O.W. is a non-profit organization that provides high caliber youth arts opportunities. All funds from our annual Haunted Maze support programming and production expenses for local youth. Our maze slogan over the years has been: "Come show you care by getting scared."
