​We are unable to offer refunds on any purchase. If you would like to reschedule your ticket time slot, you will need to purchase VHN ticket insurance. Ticket insurance allows you to reschedule your date and assigned time slot one time and confers no other benefits.

If our event is canceled by restrictions imposed by the Provincial Health Officer, or for any other reason, you expressly agree that your tickets will transfer to next year.

​VHN publishes rules on its website, which are updated from time to time. Each Ticket Holder agrees that they will abide by and follow all Rules of VHN. There may be attraction specific rules that are communicated to you when you enter an attraction and are delivered verbally. By proceeding into the attraction, you agree to these rules as well. Failure to abide by the Rules will result in your immediate ejection from the Event of Performance, without a refund.

Chickening Out
​VHN is a haunted attraction — you’ve paid us to scare you. If the experience becomes too intense for you, you may advise the nearest Cast Member that you wish to “chicken out” and you’ll be allowed to leave the attraction through defined “chicken doors” to immediately exit to the main area of the Scream Park. Chicken doors are marked with a sign and are normally a black curtain that is easy to move through. If you do “chicken out,” you will not be provided with a refund. You will, however, be immortalized on our chicken counter, which counts the number of guests who chicken out each year.​

You Assume All Risks
The Ticket Holder voluntarily assumes all risk and danger of personal injury and hazards arising from or related in any way to the Performance, whether occurring prior to, during or after the Event and releases VHN from all liability.
